OK, who owns their firstnamesurname.com?

I only ask because GOdaddy asked if I wanted to register it when I orderd a domain the other day.

I can't see I would use it, but it would stop someone else getting it

Yeah goDaddy's been askin me too. I don't have any real reason to get it either other than to get it so someone else can't have it. My name isn't very common so the chances oy anyone actually having my name and wanting the domain are pretty low.

I use it just for a portfolio type thing.

.com .net and .org (yes, that's right: the only ones that matter) of JamesHenderson.com are all taken. Damn me and my generic name!

I do. Wish I could get just lastname.com :(

10-03-2005, 08:33 AM
Actually, I just grabbed lastname.org (my last name, not the literal;)) - woot.

I have the misfortunate to share a name with an ex-president. I even tried to get it with my middle initial and it was taken :(

Not available!

I`ve been watching it yearly.

I own my forum name however.

I share the same name as an NBA star!

I have initial1initial2surname.co.uk though, that I just use for emails.

I would have expected you to go for 4beasleys.com. :D

Hah, nice, Westech.

The Beasleys... sounds like a 60's-style sitcom
