Peek.Space Trends on Hacker News

On occasion when I visit Hacker News, I see a business or website using a new gTLD domain name that is receiving some recognition. On Monday afternoon, I saw that Peek.Space was trending on Hacker News. As you can see, Peek.Space uses a .Space new gTLD domain name.

Judging by the Peek.Space offering, it seems that a .Space domain name makes sense for this website. Here’s what you can expect to find when you visit Peek.Space, according to the website’s about page:

“ exists because these beautiful free images of space were scattered in an unaccessible sea of quantity and flash-slide shows. I’ve gone through thousands of images and picked out the best ones, so you don’t have to!”

Interestingly, was not registered by Patrik Göthe, the owner of Peek.Space, and he doesn’t have an interest in registering it either. “I’ve been getting really tired of the .com domain hype (prices) and their rare availability. I simply decided to try and not be a part of the problem,” he told me via email.

He also has an interesting viewpoint about domain names in general. “Even though prices are still going up, I see domains as a downgoing trend. (Will we really have a url-field saying http://www. —–) in 10 years? I hope not!” I don’t agree with him on that, but I suppose we will see what happens in ten years.

In any case, I think Peek.Space is a neat website operating on a new gTLD.
