Microsoft gets hacked!!!

ZFBot

Microsoft now owns Bi.ng - the Nigerian domain hack.

Microsoft, the giant software publisher has just gotten hacked.

Don’t go rushing to Microsoft.com to view some strange page though – that’s not the type of hack we’re talking about.

In the language of domainers, a “hack” is a clever way to shorten a word or phrase to its shortest possible or practical manner.

An example of a domain hack is Mexi.co – using the .CO TLD as the last two characters for “Mexico”.

Clever, isn’t it?

It seems Microsoft just registered Bi.ng as the shortest possible shortcut – or, domain hack – to go with its search engine, Bing.

The .NG TLD is Nigerian and the country is often associated with the 419 type of scams and other online fraud. Apparently, this will be the biggest legitimate online venture ever to come out of a .NG domain and Nigeria! 😀

    No coincidence that Microsoft HQ is planing to move to Nigeria.

    Isn’t Microsoft a scam?

    Strange, officially .ng isn’t even open to registration – only .com.ng (and other obscure third level extensions).

  3. Michael says:

    Just got word from a Nigerian registrar that .ng domains are now indeed available as premium domains to certain applicants.

    The first one to get a .ng domain, a big local newspaper, apparently paid $20,000 for theirs…

    Domainga.ng is still free to register!

    Michael – Did the registrar ask for the money in small bills inside a suitcase? 😀

    Jeff – Don’t even try it, buster! 😀

    Not too macho, first of all ‘soft’, now it’s Bi too?
