Sort of on the subject, anyone know the status of the .BBS TLD? I
know it was availalbe under some lesser used registrars which mostly
made it pointless. TLD's are handed out like candy now though, .bbs
would be awesome :)
u.bbs/abc type URLs would be great ;)
It looks like .bbs is/was only available under OpenNIC which requires you to change which DNS servers you're using to be made available. So it's not a "real" TLD per say, but it is available if you're interested:
It looks like the OpenNIC .bbs TLD is run by a gentleman named Dustin Souers and must be registered manually. Going to http://register.bbs
changing my DNS servers to OpenNIC) gave me a certificate error for https://dustin.souers.org
but no information on that page told me how to proceed.
Registering a new "real" TLD looks super expensive (US$185,000 to register
and then US$6250 per calendar quarter to maintain).
