Site mirror domain name: let’s find something easier

Hi folks!

After a talk with Doug, about the strange domain name I created is a
pain to pronounce "Mrof Talp Bew".

We are calling for a vote to get a better name. Please tell us what you
think we should use?

I’d like to remind the reason we need this:

* Serve the same sub-domains as in production (e.g. docs.webplatform.org
docs.CHOSENNAME.FOO) but, under a completeley separate set of servers
(database, mail, web, cache, etc).
* Stage server and code changes before touching the live deployment


Proposal:

I’d like to suggest webplatformstg.org and we refer to it as "staging".

The benefit of that name is that I could simplify code to a regular
expression.

    /(docs|blog|stats|www)?\.?webplatform(stg)?\.org/g

Would match in code both webplatform.org AND webplatformstg.org but also
other cases such as docs.webplatform.org and docs.webplatformstg.org.

Opinion?
