Ofcourse you can!
Does this work? They offer free domains with any tld-extension you can imagine...
I registered. They say, my domain is installed in few hours. Let's see
It works with a plugin.. Means that you'll have to install a program to view te pages. It's a private network.
LOL. With a plugin I can also do that. I just make a little change in your hostsfile somewhere in system32 like "mydomain.dom mysub.frih.net"
and then you'll come to my site whenever you type mydomain.com
Thanks for telling me that.
I saw that button "update your browser" but the site was unavailable...
To create your own tld costs a lot, and i have no idea where you could registere it. I think somwhere in Washinghton...
The problem is that you'll need a lot of money....and i mean a lot.
You can search on wikipedia more ablout tld's (top level domains)
I couldn't find the exact price, because google fonds only domain registration, which are chepear.
I heard that they are around a few $mil.
Ok. I wondered because I saw addresses like www.anything.by (by stands for Bayern, Bavaria. the state in state where I'm from. But 'by' could also just be the tdlextension of any little islandgroup (how can they afford that much money). And I also saw www.anything.muc. Muc is short für the munich-airport (like LAX etc). This were a site of our city. I don't think a city would spend million of dollar for it's own tld.
I'll do research and post it here again
//EDIT: Wiki says that 'by' stands for bellarus
research goes on
why dont u just right-click "my computer, go to computer name and edit the settings there.
For what? Then you need a server like xampp, and it's only reachable in your intranet. But with this service, youo can host your site online and everybody with that plugin can access it.
i didn't actually read fully as i was a little busy... i tried this service but didn't work. i have a proxy server!
may work for other people...
Then, I can register a name like bill.at.microsoft as my domain name
Possible but not practicle. (my opinion)
It could be that the " Few million" for registering a tld is only for private organisations and not countries who want their own country specific domain names.
It's gotta be more than a few million dollars... perhaps a couple dozen million or even hundred million.
I just came accross this old post of yours and I tried this dotworlds.net site....wow....they have dashcom as well (eg: instead of sex.com you can have sex-com). Tried a few domains and they work! Need to upgrade browser though. Maybe this will take off. I am stocking up. Thanks
I wouldn't get to attached to this site, especially since it requires users to install a browser plug in.
From what I understand ICANN is planning to allow you to register domains like this in the near future. It seems like they could be at a reasonable price as well.
