Day 5: setting up a website
in: Diary of a solo dev building a web app
Jun 13, 2022
This is a dev diary of implementing Filerion, a web-based file manager for online storage (Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, s3 and more).
The app is not yet useful but I do believe in “ship early” philosophy.
Today I’ve shipped the website at https://filerion.com/ which involved:
Other things:
Thoughts on naming
Coming up with a good name for software product is hard.
A good name with available domain name? Even harder.
Why Filerion?
It does have file in the name, so it relates to the product.
I hope it’s easy to pronounce, type and remember.
A .com domain was available.
Per Google, there’s nothing else with that exact name, which will help in the far future when people, hypothetically, will want to find the app via web search.
