Somebody already owns all of the good domain names. I wanted to have a blog at www.misfittoy.com, but it wasn’t for sale. (But it sure is being put to good use by its current owners.) The same company that owns that site also bought up misfittoys.com. Good thing.
On the topic of purchased domains, I came across an entertaining blog on Royal Pingdom where they did the research on the interesting .coms owned by Google. These are a few of my favorites:
- 30dayfitness.com (huh?)
- essentialmommy.com (makes sense)
- thesecretofburritos.com (I want that one)
