Anyone ever bought domains just because the name humoured you?

    Are you kidding? lol with my handle F00lu I think the answer is obvious. Yes I have the domain. Zero;s not letters in the middle. Probably not the best for a domain seller on after thought. I was attempting to show my sense of humour.
    For more humour, I played around and made some more new URL like
    money.bankgic.com
    buy.rawgold.info
    jet.dl787.com

    I just point them to a page or site not being hosted. Some I mask the redirect. Others not.

    Domains for laughs? No, but I do buy temporary domains all the time. I picked up thetesting.space for $0.88 because, well, I needed a domain to test some stuff on my server. I'll let it expire, then next time I need another temp domain I'll get another $0.88 domain at Namecheap.

    LOL... No worries. :xf.grin:

    I assumed it was just a mistake. I did the same to someone earlier this week for about 30 seconds before I realized what I had done.

    Now back to our regularly scheduled discussion about semi-rational people doing totally irrational things for Schlitz & Giggles....

    Quite a few times.
    Some finalists in king, H/O/O/T/Z/P/A, /B/A/N/G/J/U/I/C/E
    But hands down, no pun intended, the winner is V//J//I//N//A, still makes me laugh each time
