this rant
made me realise since I was little, I wanted to register

- my_surname.com (its a Hungarian name but there is a french comic strip on the site lol)

- then i wanted to register my_surname.sk since I'm from Slovakia (nope someone has a chain of petrol stations with this name)

- well its awkward but lets do my_surname.eu (my surname is the name of a traditional Hungarian needlework so no fuck you)

- ok, I'm a Hungarian so lets do my_surname.hu (well fuck you i wont even load, but I'm already taken so..)

    There are more than a few tlds out there?

    You can go the obvious .ai, .io route, or the more fun .xyz, .xxx, .lol, .pizza

    @fattymiller they are more expensive and im not sure about if I do web development, if my audience would remember/understand its not the classic .com, .sk or .hu I know people who have problems realising .eu is a legit tld

    My name seems to be the most common among Hungarian developers, so every fcking combination of my name is already taken among .com domains, on github, on linkedin, etc.
    Also, I noticed that some weeks ago my firstnamelastname.com has been expired (it was owned by someone else), BUT it was already taken some minutes later by a domain broker company. And Google says they might keep it for up to 7 years before they release it..

    @webdev .xyz is really cheap, at least on Namecheap. I get a .xyz domain of my name for €1 a year
