What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 150 Stack Exchange communities.

Why don't all SE sites have the same naming format? While most of them are {site-name}.stackexchange.com, there are others like serverfault and superuser, and of course stackoverflow.com is a unique name in itself.

What were the reasons for these namings?

Stack Overflow, Server Fault and Super User (the original trilogy) predate Stack Exchange.
