As a bit of an early Christmas present in early December my parents bought me the domain DannyBrown.net.
I was really pleased with this because I’ve spent the last few months trying to contact the current owners of domains which are suitable for my name, but to no avail. Having such a common name has made it difficult to get a great domain, but I’m very pleased with this one.
The main reason I made the switch is that I grew tired of having to spell out my old domain — dantonybrown.net — to people, quite often they would think it was D Anthony Brown.com. DannyBrown.net just rolls of the tongue easier, is easier to spell and remember and is shorter.
It also has a slight double meaning, in that I mainly develop using the Microsoft Common Language Runtime also known as The .NET Framework.
At the moment the domain just shows this blog, but I hope to write a full portfolio website soon.
