World's shortest 'Dhamma' domain name

Postby David N. Snyder » Thu Sep 06, 2012 12:21 am



As many of you know I have a hobby of collecting Buddhist domain names and creating some websites. I currently have about 27 Buddhist related domain names and websites (some domain names are just redirects to some of the primary websites).

One of the latest things collectors have been doing is creating words and domain names by using the country codes. For example, you tube used the Belgium country code of dot be to create: youtu.be which of course spells youtube without the dot com extension.

So I ordered the Morocco country code dot ma (.ma) extension so that it would spell 'Dhamma' including the extension. The domain name is dham and then with the extension spells Dhamma. :tongue:

It redirects to one of my main websites: http://www.thedhamma.com/

Then I guess it's time for naccagitavaditavisukkadassanamalagandhavilepanadharanamandanavibhusanathanaveramanisikkhapadamsamadiya.mi

(a Michigan, USA domain extension, so it's even legit)

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Knowing about dhamma, does not imply knowing dhamma

I see now what is meant by the expression "Dhamma geek" :smile:

Hopefully "dham" doesn't mean anything embarrassing in Arabic.
"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Some countries are very strict about the nationality of the person who requests a domain, so you're quite lucky you got a .ma address :clap:

I have only one address myself and I barely use it.

Hi yawares,

Thanks for your interest. The links to the book (google books and a pdf) are on the front, home page of the site, in the paragraph under "sold out" in the blue letters / links.[/quote]

Dear David,
Tep got it for me yesterday..yawares is an airhead/don't know how to find it :tongue: ...I'll post real soon. After 10 years my laptop died at dawn this morning. Tep just bought a new/pretty laptop for me an hour ago.
yawares is using Tep's computer right now while he 's connecting/download everything back into my new laptop.
