    GoDaddy's April Fool's joke to me

    So yesterday I was looking for some music related domains on GoDaddy, typed in 'music' to see what international domains were available, and to my surprise music.ms was ready for the taking. Who cares if its a weird extension, music.ms is a badass domain. So I go through the usual registration steps, they charge me $34.99, I get a confirmation email, I'm all happy. 15 minutes later, I get another email saying there was an error: music.ms is already registered and I'll be getting a refund. Thanks GoDaddy. I wasted 15 minutes mocking up a logo in Photoshop for nothing.

    Doh! Bet you were feeling pretty great about landing that domain before the email came though?

    Speaking of this, I always wondered what would happen if 2 people bought the same domain name at the same time. I guess thats my answer. Or maybe someone saw it and thought it was too good to let you have for 7.99 lol
