    My biggest regret would be letting all my domains lapse back in 2002 when I went travelling. There weren't any "mega" domains in the portfolio, but I'd certainly like to have some of them back now!

    Commiserations my friend.


    Way to rub it in James...


    Troy I hope you're a very happy, healthy and wealthy, because this almost brought a tear to my eye. My sympathies again.

    I got this when I looked it up at Melbourne IT:

    Domain Names must:

    * Be at least 2 or 3 characters long, dependant on the namespace, EXCLUDING the namespace. For example:
    o z.com is invalid as the length of the domain without the namespace (.com) is only 1 character
    o yes.com is valid as yes is at least 2 characters long
    * Be no more than 63 characters INCLUDING the namespace
    * Contain only letters, digits, and hyphens. For example:
    o It's-1-Bad-Domain.com is invalid as it contains illegal characters
    o its1gooddomain.com is valid as it does not contain illegal characters
    o its-1-good-domain.com is also valid as it does not contain illegal characters
    * Not start or end with a hyphens. For example:
    o -1-bad-domain.com is invalid as it begins with a hyphen
    o 1-bad-domain-.com is invalid as it ends with a hyphen
    o 1-good-domain.com is valid as it does not begin or end with a hyphen

    Please make sure your Domain Name follows these rules and search again

    Note: This is intended for use as a rough guide only and may not be representative of the namespace(s) you are after.
