I've got some 5 letter .com domains, all pronouncable, and I want to develop a few of them.
The thing is, whilst they're brandable and pronouncable, they're also very general and therefore not really specific to any niche.
Do you have any ideas for the kind of site I could produce on them? I have an idea for an arcade site, but I was wondering if anyone had any more imaginative ideas?
What are they?
I think you should find abbreviations that fit with them. Might sound weird sometime tough. :P
If I remember well you had CUZOO.com, right?
So that would be something like CUte ZOO..? Maybe for a site neopet-like website...
Oooh, good suggestion, but I sold cuXoo a while back, went for just $2 :O
I've got xufoo, dnexe, aplys, owzee (my favourite) and slefe. All .com
Yo can go defenitively somewhere with dnexe.com it is very brandable in my opinion, slefe sounds nice and owzee might be the name for a software or something...

You can use that domain for making anything, i think. You can make arcade site as you wish or video streaming site, or even your blog. It's no problem and i'm sure it's will go well since you can manage it properly. Don't forget to make contest, this is important to build a brand :D
Akira, it is not necessary to hold a contest in order to build a brand.
@Simon: Lol, just had an inspirational rush:
slefe.com >>>>> SLEepFEst : All your needs for the perfect sleep-over!
Hmm, Nic, thanks for the idea, but I don't really like it :p
And, Akira, how does holding a contest improve your brand?! I mean, it'll surely get you some traffic for a bit and maybe stick in the mind of those who entered, but it really won't make a MASSIVE difference?
Sorry, my bad. I mean, hold a contest for spreading the word about your site. So, you can make system point which way to get it is :
Blog about this site to your blog - 1 entry
Tweet about this site (any article) - 1 entry
Digg it - 1 entry
I'm sure your site name will be spreaded fast. Do you know STZ which hold by swastik or farrhad in the past? Their make a contest on STZ and make the site is famoust right now (not too famoust but not bad) and get PR2 after make a contest?
Yeah, I was going to do something along these lines a while back. The main problem I had is finding good prizes. I mean, the contest here on WMP has amazing prizes, but I'm not sure how easy it is to find people who are that generous, especially on a blog as new as mine.

Because as i'm already said, because your domain is so general, so you can use it for any purpose, but the problem is how to spread the word about it (that's why i'm start to talking about contest). Sorry if you think it's offtopic.
Ok, but here is of my opinion of your general domain.
I think dnexe can be read as THE NEXT so you can use it to make a site about "the next related", include a content about many question such who do you think will be the next president or who do you think will be the next american idol, etc...
