I’ve just acquired two short domains. They are cal.io and chm.ac. The first is cool, the second is a short version of my standard username, chmac (and formed from my initials, how original!).
I’m thinking I want to move this site, my email, and my other services over to one of the two. I can’t decide which. I think I like cal.io better, but calio.com is taken and I’m already invested in chmac. It’s my username across most sites. I’m 12 of the top 20 results in a search for chmac. I own that space.
Calio is a surname, there’s all kinds of stuff going on there. It’s an exciting new space, but it might also mean walking away from chmac, which I’m already on top of.
What do you think? cal.io or chm.ac?
Update: In the 3 days since I wrote this, while I waited for the domains to be registered, I think I’m decided on cal.io as my new domain. But, I’m still interested to hear feedback.
