Using AI For Background Image

I acquired a domain name last week, and once it transferred to GoDaddy, I set up a custom landing page using Carrd. Instead of buying a stock photo for its background image, I decided to test an AI image generator to save some money.

In my paid Chat GPT account, I searched for an image generator tool. I found the image generator tool created by Naif J. Alotaibi and gave it a whirl.

Trenton Hughes posted a domain name question that drew more than 50 replies in the last two days. Trenton is launching a business called UnFounded Ventures, and he asked for feedback about which domain name he should use. The two domain name options, which he appears to already own, are UnFounded.CO and UnFoundedVentures.com:
