A while back, I was chatting with Tim Groeneveld who had recently been approved as a domain maintainer / registrar for OpenNIC. He asked me to come up with the coolest top level domain I could think of. After some thought, it hit me, .ing “think.ing , programm.ing, design.ing, sleep.ing” and even bej.ing came to mind.
I’m glad to see that the domain is off to a good start. Tim sent me a short script to dig my spell dictionary to list many possible .ing domains, I cleaned it up and sorted it in 4 column output. View the file here if you need inspiration to get your own.
The OpenNIC web site has very easy to follow instructions on how to manage your DNS settings so that you can resolve these extended domains. If you are a *nix / *bsd user you can also use your own name server.
