Have You Ever Been In That Situation Where You Lost Your Keys and Your Phone?
The internet has always been an outlet to feed the imaginations of those immersed in popular culture, and the social media boom has only increased the correlation between the two.
Often, things happen in the internet industry that are overlooked by many, blogs that are spilling with jargon and talking in a language that means nothing to the majority of the population. It makes a nice change when two worlds collide, and stories seep into the news spectrum that impress both technology buffs and fans of prime time entertainment.
Last week a rather interesting personality took to the stage on Britain’s Got Talent, the human equivalent of a circus that occasionally regurgitates someone who could actually be considered ‘talented’. Zipparah Tafari, or ‘Zippy’ as Simon Cowell refers to him, made his debut on the show with a rather interesting take on rap that shook the nation to their very core.
‘Where’s my keys, Where’s my phone’ was an instant hit online after the over-confident amateur rapper decided to weaken the limits of the English vocabulary with his lyrical monstrosity… and it was catchy.
You may be wondering what on earth this piece of apparent musical genius has to do with the more serious side of the internet industry (and by that I don’t mean the YouTube video of Zippy with half a million hits, which can incidentally be viewed here).
Domain name registration, which is the process by which people start life when creating a website, has been in the press a lot lately for various reasons, most of which concern the huge influx in the number of domains that are currently being registered across the world.
Following Zippy’s performance, internet marketers took a gamble and began to very quickly register various forms of the ‘song’ as domains, primed and ready for the catchy tune to generate business.
The increase in domain name sales around the title amused many registration companies, but that humor quickly led to further concern that the sales would be exploited by cybersquatters looking to make vast amounts of cash on what was a relatively cheap web domain. Companies like Domaincheck are urging web masters to stick to purchasing from registration platforms that are endorsed by management facilities like Nominet, and not to be sucked into a trade that could be viewed as the black market of the web industry. You can check the availability of your desired domain using Domaincheck’s free domain name generator, and also take advantage of their current sale.
