  • would you buy...

    "yourname".com if you had the chance? I know several people that did this. It makes a good email address also if you think about it. Also, if it was taken how much would you pay for it?


    i probably wouldnt but it for much more than the registrars price.

    No, I have too many e-mail addresses right now.

    Nothing. If I wanted it, I would have bought it when they came out with the .name TLD or others like .com, .net, or .org.

    Besides that, for people trying to keep their identity a bit of a secret, nothing says, DOH! like:
    "Hi! My name is Hacker_Alias, and you can reach me at me@My.Real.Name.com"

      that wouldnt be an email address that you would give out freely on the net.

      perhaps for family and your resume....

        Would placing an e-mail address that includes your name as part of the FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) seem a bit self centered, or suggest an ego that defies containment?

          for that answer I would say that the truth lies in the eyes of the beholder.

          besides... everyone has thier own ideas of what is good and what isnt. having your name dot com on a resume wouldnt really make you an asshat... but wearing it on a tshirt would.

                Your real name or a nickname?

                I wonder when siviakistan will get its own TLD. Siviak? ".siv" ?

                  well you can have thecot.man or the like. How hard can it be to get a TLD, someone just makes an entry into a DNS server, no biggee. Which server though.

                  Now THAT would be hacking!

                    Yeah, that would rock. I'd love to see .abby

                      Yeah, but what would YOU have? Your real name or nickname?

                      Heh. Modify root DNS servers and get whois referral for authoritative on a TLD? Tricky.

                      It would be easy enough to do on a single DNS Server for those who use that DNS, but having it work everywhere would be a bit more work-- especially without cooperation.

                        Hmmm. In the Virtual Light trilogy, Gibson wrote about an "interstitial network space" named after Kowloon Walled City. That might be one way to do it.

                          I wouldnt mind me@fire.mutt that would be something to have. but probably would seem a little self centered though. either way. it would be good to see peoples reaction if you gave them an address like that.

                            I don't know what I'd have...if I had the option for a TLD maybe I'd make it ".tld" just to buck the system. And can a domain name have underscores like ast_cell.com? if so maybe I will get ______.com, hehe. Yes, just a bunch of underscores.

                            It's easy enough to tweak an in house DNS server (is that redundant, like VIN Number?) so that whitehouse.gov points to defcon.org. But anything on the outside, hmmm I smell a challenge. Talk about the ultimate lockpicking competition!!!

                              :-) That would be cool!

                              "_" [underscores] are not legal. [It may be possible if the RFC is violated.] Only letters and numbers are allowed and use of the "-" is possible but with restrictions on how it can be used, according to RFC. [There have been suggestions for allowing for extra characters to specify multi-byte character sets and make non-alphabetical domain names possible.]

                              (IIRC, -.com , --.com , and ---.com are not legal, but a-a.com is.)

                              It's easy enough to tweak an in house DNS server (is that redundant, like VIN Number?)
                              It depends on what the "S" stands for. The usual meaning is "Domain Name Service" and full expansion would be Domain Name Service Server. If the "S" is "Server" (less common) then DNS Server would be like VIN Number and PIN Number.
                              Generally, Domain Name Service Server is not redundant when you refer to the box that is running your DNS. :-)

                              so that whitehouse.gov points to defcon.org. But anything on the outside, hmmm I smell a challenge. Talk about the ultimate lockpicking competition!!!
                              Since DNS generally uses UDP for lookups, and UDP can be more easily forged than TCP (with overhead of sequence/acknowledgement numbers) DNS Cache Poisoning attacks were possible if attackers were clever about it. (DNS is not reliable.) This makes targetted attacks for lookups easier than a global domain attack, but not necessarily easy.

                              Creation of a new,global, illegetimate TLD without support from insiders is likely a difficult task. A combination of attacks would likely be needed-- one of which would be probably be social engineering, and its lifespan would likely be short.
