    Seems like a good name, but it depends on what you have planned for the site.

    Can you give us an idea?

    Cool.

    Well, it sounds like a good name to me. Besides, at the cost of domain names, even a waste of money. Isn't that much of a waste. But like I said, I think it's a good name.

    Good luck!

    I like your name, it sounds cool, viral marketing works at a peer to peer level, whoever takes that concept to the web first will score big especially with teen markets. Well Done

    thanks for your thoughts.... the name seems to be a rare grab so I guess I got lucky getting it. Anyone else has thoughts or a site proposal please let me know. Thanks.

    I've heard that ICANN has been forcing domain name registrars to release domains back into the wild that haven't been developed, but ironically I can't find anything to back it up.

    I have noticed some good domain names coming up lately (and I don't mean just the .com or .net - I mean the whole range), such as virtualrope.com (talk about giving someone enough rope to hang themselves with - ick). Another example is in my signature (well, as of the time of this post anyway) in the "Coming Soon" line.

    Anyway, I strongly recommend visiting www.domainwarning.com to anyone interested in registering a domain name, whether it's the person's first or thousandth.

    Off Topic:


    That should happen, and get all those parked names off the spammy click-ad sites that accompany them. Afterall it should be fair game right?
    Does anyone actually agree with me on this that monetised parked domains (never-ever to be developed) are a blight on the web?

    It is annoying - there's no denying that. I do see the day when domain leasing services will be used more and more by domain owners in a way that can provide both value to the owner and value to the visitor of the domain name where the name is leased to a group that uses the name to provide value (content, product or service) with the name. These services exist and are slowly being used, but sadly the majority of owners who hold great names aren't using them yet - either because domain parking provides more $$$ than if they would lease them out, or they are simply not aware of them yet.
