Time for a new Domain name?

Well the sad truth is, most of them are taken (or even worse parked by domain speculators). This is an interesting read about some domain name statistics at Dennis Forbes - Pragmatic Software Development (only for .com TLD). For example you learn that there are 11,333 domains containing free and sex, not very surprising. Or that all 2 and 3 letter domains are taken and also 80% of the 4-letter-words. And that 538 domains utilize the full length of 63 characters.

Inspired by this I now have a new email-address: marcodeppe (a) abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.com (beware they might send you spam, but it was free).They advertise the following benefits of getting an email address there:

  • Some Webforms do not work with your email
  • Some Email Software Cannot be configured
  • People Cannot Remember your email address
  • Companies think that your email address is fake
That was just too good for me to pass!
