Will thedailywtf get a .wtf domain?



  • I noticed .wtf domain names are available since spring this year.
    See http://newgtlds.icann.org/en/program-status/delegated-strings
    Id be interested in wheter theDailywtf is planning to register such a domain name and what others think of the idea.
    Im not sure what the new domain could be - thedaily.wtf for example - that would make a fine poll.



  • I vote for the.daily.wtf - with daily.wtf, www.daily.wtf and www.the.daily.wtf all returning 404.


  • Fake News

    You really want a pedantic URL?



  • I think it's taken.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the policy in question is "Because thedailywtf.com is registered", in which case alex may be able to claim it anyway.

  • tdemsyr.wtf



  • Did Alex trademark "The Daily WTF?"




  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place
