Can I have the mroftalpbew.gro site? ;-)

This probably goes without say, but I do want to call out that especially if we do have *webplatform* in the URL — which I agree makes sense — we want to make sure that we deter search bots and such from indexing as best we can.

I think it's a great idea to change this URL to something easily pronounceable, especially since this group has so many new people all the time, and does so much of it's organizing on conference calls.

I agree with Eliot. Let's make this easy to say, and easy to understand from what's said. webplatformstg.org<http://webplatformstg.org> is still extra hard "Web platform stage dot org, but stage is 'stg' not stage". Sure 'stg' is three letters shorter, but constantly telling people how to mis-spell it is many words longer.

or stage-webplatform.org<http://stage-webplatform.org>

All of these would be a great improvement over mroftalpbew.

Slight modification on my part:

I’d like to suggest webplatformstage.org<http://webplatformstage.org> and we refer to it as "stage".

If we say "stage," it makes sense to me to spell, "stage". All other logic still applies.

My 2 cents,

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<http://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


I’d like to suggest webplatformstg.org<http://webplatformstg.org> and we refer to it as "staging".

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


Would match in code both webplatform.org<http://webplatform.org> AND webplatformstg.org<http://webplatformstg.org> but also other cases such as docs.webplatform.org<http://docs.webplatform.org> and docs.webplatformstg.org<http://docs.webplatformstg.org>.
