Right now we're currently puzzling.stackexchange.com but will we ever be "puzzling.com" or something similar like https://stackoverflow.com/ or https://superuser.com/

When is it actually available for us, and what should we (if we do, there's nothing wrong with out current domain name) change it to?

  • $\begingroup$ If I'm not mistaken, a more specific domain is only available when the site makes it out of beta. I think there are other discussions on our name when we get out of Beta. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @mdc32 Once upon a time, sites got a custom domain when they graduated, but that hasn't been the case for a few years now. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ SE Sites don't get a custom domain anymore, just like Kevin said. $\endgroup$

No, the Trilogy (S[OFU]) and a few exceptions are the only sites to have custom domain names.

(The exceptions are Stack Overflow in Portuguese because it's a "branch" of sorts, Stack Apps because it's not a normal Q&A site, Ask Ubuntu because of its relationship to Ubuntu, and MathOverflow for historical reasons.)

    $\begingroup$ There are a couple others (Seasoned Advice, Arqade, maybe more; they all redirect to their SE domains now). At one time all sites were given a domain with their design upon graduation, but they quickly decided that wasn't sustainable and stopped it a few years ago. $\endgroup$
