What's a "betalupi?"
Beta Lupi is a solar system on the Endless Sky galaxy map, which is the first place I look whenever I need to name a server.
Stellar names (especially those of Arabic origin) make pretty good hostnames: they're meaningless (in English), they sound interesting, and the "hyperlanes" that connect them in titles like Endless Sky and Stellaris look a lot like a network topology.
Beta Lupi also happens to be a real star in the southern constellation of Lupus (wiki), but that's not particularly important.
A snippet of the Endless Sky map is below.
In other words: Try finding a
.com domain that...
- Isn't already taken
- Doesn't sound awful
- Isn't owned by a scalper that's selling it for $300
