MC-.info

This post would probably be meaningless to 99% of my readers but just thought it was really interesting, especially if you have your own domain name!

MC-.info

Throughout my years of experience on the Internets, this is probably the only domain name I’ve ever seen ending with a hyphen just before the domain suffix!

Found in the FAQs of the .info registry, Afilias;

What are the valid characters and valid lengths for domain names?

.INFO names can contain the English-language letters A through Z, and the digits 0 through 9. You can also use hyphens, but hyphens cannot begin or end your domain name. Spaces and special characters (such as !, $, &, ë, and so on) are never permitted. The minimum length is 3 characters, and the maximum length is 63 characters (excluding the “http://www” and “.info” portions).

For some reason, this particular domain managed to be registered and allowed to continue resolving!

I tried contacting the owner but either he’s too busy or too annoyed at everyone asking him or her the same question over and over again. Who knows? Maybe it’s like what the webpage says, “It’s Magic!”.
