Picking a strobogrammatic prime number domain name

Why…

After several sessions of scratching my chin thinking about a text based domain name and coming up with no good ideas, or finding out that the best ones where already taken, I decided to simplify the whole thing and just pick a number.
If you can pick any number, why not picking a cool number…

I put together a simple script to find the numbers

And the winner is… 191161.xyz

Because I want my dns to support DNSSEC (reasons…) I needed to pick a TLD which root zone has been signed. I choose some of the prime numbers and a couple cheap TLD, and after reviewing my options, I locked in with 191161.xyz for $5 a year.
