The Longest Domain Names
Have you heard or seen the longest domain name in the whole world? Seems funny, right? But, the idea for the longest domain name in the whole world in fact exists.
Many people today are sometimes awed by the introduction of the longest domain names in the world and sometimes most of the people are annoyed for finding such longest domain names. Well, for certain reasons, the longest domain names exist and are in operation. And today, many people were even excited to find the longest domain name maybe for some perusals or for certain purposes. So if you are one of those who wish to know the longest domain names that ever exist, you better read on for here they are.
Generally, many are claiming as the longest of all the longest domain names, and today, there is really no sole domain name that is really acclaimed as the longest domain name of all. However, to mention a few of the somehow recognized as the "longest domain names", it is interesting to know that one of those who have registered the longest domain name in the world is a village in Wales with the longest domain name in Britain.
Speaking of such longest domain name in Britain, it is noted that the new domain is addressed as www.llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.com owes its emergence to the 63 character limit on domain names. It is in fact considered that the original character limit on domain names is really 26, but now it was changed to 63 characters. It is also interesting to know that this domain which is named after a town in the Isle of Angelsey in Wales was translated into English which then means ?St. Mary?s church in the hollow of the white hazel near a rapid whirlpool and the Church of St. Tysilio of the red cave?. Accordingly, this longest domain name is locally known as Llanfair PG, but this is transformed into such term to test the true nature of being Welsh and that is to be able to pronounce the name of the town. By having such ridiculous long name, the committee that chose it thought that the people would remember it and want it to come and visit. And maybe one advantage of this domain name is it is a single word domain name.
Aside from such considered as the longest domain name, here comes another pretty long domain name, www.thelongestdomainnameintheworldandthensomeandthensomemoreandmore.com, which is composed of 64 characters. Wow! It beats the first one. That?s pretty long, indeed!
After that, here comes the www.supercalafragalisticexpialadocious.com which is also registered as the longest domain name in the world. However, many people have noted that it returns a 403 error if you to visit.
And aside from that many noted that another domain name known as http://abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzabcdefghijk.mail.everyone.net is registered as the longest domain name in the world or more specifically, as the longest email address.
Such domain names are considered as the longest domain name that ever exists for the reason that most domain name registrations are not that long. It is in fact given that most of the common length for domain name registration is just seven characters. However, one disadvantage of longest domain names is that they are much harder to remember than the shorter domain names, and also the longest domain names are much likely to get entered incorrectly. But as it is considered, such longest domain name exists for all the good ones have almost gone.
