    I recently wrote a post to announce the availability of M6g, R6g and C6g families of instances on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). These instances offer better cost-performance ratio than their x86 counterparts. They are based on AWS-designed AWS Graviton2 processors, utilizing 64-bit Arm Neoverse N1 cores. Starting today, you can also benefit from better […] [Read More]

    A year or so after we launched Amazon S3, I was in an elevator at a tech conference and heard a couple of developers use “just throw it into S3” as the answer to their data storage challenge. I remember that moment well because the comment was made so casually, and it was one of […] [Read More]

    Time series are a very common data format that describes how things change over time. Some of the most common sources are industrial machines and IoT devices, IT infrastructure stacks (such as hardware, software, and networking components), and applications that share their results over time.

There are 1,578 top-level domains

It is time to talk about domain name. The data here is correct as of today: 19 October 2018.

The number of top-level domains keeps growing year by year.

There are 1,578 top-level domains, of which 312 are country-code. Within those 312 country-codes, 19 of them are considered generic by Google:

  • .ad
  • .as
  • .bz
  • .cc
  • .cd
  • .co
  • .dj
  • .fm
  • .io
  • .la
  • .me
  • .ms
  • .nu
  • .sc
  • .sr
  • .su
  • .tv
  • .tk
  • .ws

So you could register a domain name in those “countries” and not be attached to the said country.

It now leaves (1,578 – 312 =) 1,266 more times to find the available domain name of your dream! Most extensions do not have any restrictions to register.

However: one must choose carefully.

SpamAssassin considers some extensions has a higher score in spam ranking, those extensions are:

  • .tk
  • .pw
  • .link
  • .rocks
  • .click
  • .work
  • .science
  • .info
  • .me
  • .biz
  • .top
  • .date
  • .trade
  • .stream
  • .bid
  • .pw
  • .press

DKIM, SPF records and DMARC should be enabled on those domains.

Now it is time to give out the best tool to register new domains:
