Kickstart your domains

Kick your domain names into sideprojects

domaining for makers

Who is this for?

If you own more domain names than sideprojects, this is for you

Why kickstart·dev?

Let's start with a short question:

How many domain names do you own?
And how many of those turned into something?

Yea, sounds a lot like me

But what if it was plain fun to get started? And it only took you a couple of minutes to get setup?
Kickstart·dev provides you with a sideproject-in-a-box for every single one of your domains

  1. Not sure where to start?
    Sort on sideproject potential using the decision matrix
  2. Email for your domain?
    A single click will set everything up, ready to use
  3. Test the waters?
    Get a landing page automatically hosted on your domain
  4. Analytics? Mailing list?
    All included and setup for you
  5. Ready to go for it?
    Have a private Github repository delivered to you with the boilerplate of your choice

My goal is to go from domain name to something exciting in an evening
