I’m always looking for alternatives to sites, for one reason or another. An alternative to Google because of their politics. An alternative to CouchSurfing.com because of it’s unreliability. An alternative to RentaCoder.com because it’s good to spread the reptuation.
This morning, I thought it would be great to launch a simple site that lists alternatives to popular sites. While walking to the shops, the perfect url hit me, alternatives.to of course! Unfortunately, it’s taken. As is alt.to. However, alts.to is available.
So, questions for you, my faithful readers:
- Do you think it’s a good idea? Could it be useful?
- Is alts.to clutching at straws? Should I try to find a url that really works instead of a second best option?
Answers on a postcard, or a comment below for expendiancy! 🙂
Update: Both alternates.to and alternate.to are available. Are they better?
