Ever tried to get a domain?

A post on this blog that isn’t about basketball? Is that even possible? You should mark this day in your calender ’cause this won’t happen often. It’s a little story about how this blog got his name. In case you didn’t get the memo, you can get here with this links: www.dunkonu.com or www.dunkonyou.com .

Well, as you maybe already know, it can get pretty addictive to play around with whois. What’s whois? A nice little tool that tells you if the domain you would like to purchase is still available. You can just google it or try it at godaddy or similar pages.

First you start to brainstorm and try the first thing that comes to your mind. Okay, we are going for basketball so we try dunk.com, slamdunk.com, baller.com and soon you get the feeling that you are really, really late for this sale. So you try to think of something that isn’t that common. What’s your favorite movie about basketball? Hmmm…White Men Can’t Jump? (All-time underrated sports movie, but thats a post for another day) As a domain name it would be way too long so you try to remember some funny quotes (and let me tell you, there are plenty in this movie).

White Men Cant Jump

Good times...

You are so stupid. It would take your mother 1, no. 2 hours to watch 60 MINUTES.”

I’ll tell you what. Why don’t we take all these bricks and build a shelter for the homeless, so maybe your mother will have a place to stay.

Teammates can’t hustle each other.Why not?It’s not…artistic.

It’s always nice to think about a movie you like, but not helpful in your quest to get a domain. After trying a few things you start to wonder what kind of stuff you would find on the pages that aren’t available anymore. Who would take a domain like www.chumpchange.com? Well, click on the link and check it out. Chumpchange Records. I like your hustle, man, keep it up. Way to go…no, I’m serious…for real…

Okay, now you get desperate and try everything that crosses your mind…isn’t there a mascot called slamalot? www.slamalot.com and cross your fingers. No luck again. No clue what this page is about, but somebody was faster than me.

Hey, Chappelle show on TV…”Where’s my money, B….?” and so on and because you got the feeling that every domain is already gone, you get curious and try things like http://www.slapthatb****.com – and it isn’t available. You aren’t sure what would be more surprising – if it was available or that it is already registered. Well, I didn’t dare to check out that page so if you try it, let me know what it is about.

Ever tried www.eathumans.com? It’s gone. www.need4weed.com? Gone. www.freecrack.com? Gone, www.davidstern.com? Gone – check the last one out, quite funny if you talk yourself into thinking it is the NBA commissioner’s homepage.

People register EVERYTHING on the net. Crazy stuff. It wouldn’t be that bad if it was for free, but you have to pay for it.

Thanks for reading this whole thing. Here are some domains that are still available so you don’t feel like it was a complete waste of time. http://www.burnbookswatchtv.com and http://www.ihateorphans.com. Good luck.
