New Orleans inspired domain names are one of my favorite domain niches. Creole and Cajun words and phrases are used in abundance down here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. You might as well call us an extension of Louisiana.
It’s hard to believe that NOLA and the Mississippi Gulf Coast have come as far along as they have since Katrina. To say this area was devastated is an understatement for sure.
First the infrastructure had to be rebuilt and then the people had to start moving back. That took a full decade. What I see now are vibrant neighborhoods springing back to life. The French Quarter is booming. Uptown is booming. Marigny and the Warehouse District are booming. The CBD is a beehive of activity.
Since New Orleans is a city that revolves around food, new restaurants are opening up about as fast as they get the tourists in and out of Cafe du Monde. Speaking of Cafe du Monde, I wish I had some beignets right now.
New Orleans Inspired Domain Names
The most popular terms were registered many years ago, but every now and then I pick up some really good ones. I’ve also missed out on a few great domains – one being Feliciana.com last year – that I got outbid on. Hindsight, I probably should have gone a little higher on that one.
The bulk of my New Orleans-styled domains are food related. I think these types of food domains make great investments because New Orleans is a treasure in itself – unique and unparalleled – when compared to other cities in the US.
This month, I’ve picked up a few New Orleans inspired domain names through NameJet, including CochonDeLait.com, a name that was registered in 2004.
Cochon de Lait is to South Louisiana as the Luau is to Hawaii. A Cochon de Lait is one big party thrown around the celebratory roasting of a whole pig. CochonDeLait.com is a great exact match domain name for caterers and restaurants in the New Orleans vicinity!
