    Nice project. I would avoid truncating the domain names if possible. You kind of what to see what the full domain name is to evaluate if it's any good/interesting. Perhaps make the boxes bigger with fewer per row to allow for longer domains?

      Hey oskar! Yes, that's on our list, thank you :) So far we didn't put much thought into UI details, mostly used bootstrap to get it up and running. But now that we've gained some traction I'm going to work on stuff like that. Actually I was working on improvements for the profile-page yesterday, feel free to critique: https://twitter.com/yannschaub/status/902977555237568515

    Cool idea. I'd scrap the homepage and make your discover page the homepage.

    edit - also:

    H1: line-height: 6; (on discover page for example)

    give it some breathing room.

    And also 'makers' is a weird way to describe domain owners. Call it what it is and your conversions might go up a bit

      Great feedback todd! I think we indeed could take a similar approach than producthunt.com for example - compare the logged in / not logged in views to see what I mean. I think having the value proposition displayd to first time users is benefitial.

        That's a good point. Maybe put the hero section from the homepage on the discover page. The homepage is kind of weird at the moment with that massive list of names that mean nothing to the user at the bottom

          Haha yeah agree. It's kind of a left over from 5 days ago when we only had 25 signups. I still think it adds some way of social proof - it's basically a form of testimonials. Will do something about it, thx for the feedback.

    Hello Designer News!

    Two weeks ago Yann and me started a new side-project where makers can discover, share and bid on domain names.

    After launching on ProductHunt a week ago, over 250 makers signed up and they've added well over 500 domain names in the last 7 days only!

    I've been following DesignerNews for a while now and I feel that this is a community with a lot of creative designers/makers that have some cool and interesting domain names as well. So really looking forward to seeing those op topfive.domains!

    If you guys have any questions, please let me know!

    Thanks,

    Joshua
