Indeed you can.
I still feel that one of the best domains is still, simply:

www.com

It should be reserved by the registry. I would expect it to be similar to the whois for info.info which is regged to ICANN.

Ssome of the first trick that made ppl believe they're selling good short domain names.

so full adress would be: http://www.www-ad.com

sounds like a cheap domainname i always stick to names my small head can remember these are the names i believe have a possible future (after spamers prove to the world that spaming doesn't work on humans anymore).
I'm getting sick of all those names ppl try to push at ebay for symbolic start prices of like 100,000usd lol.

On the other hand www-ad.com could be good if it had 2 w instead of 3: world wide advertising but still the -'s is nasty stuff.

well, all of you should be careful with these kind of domain like www-blahblah.com, www-fakestuff.com... they are not the same thing as www.blahblah.com or www.fakestuff.com !!! Pay attention!

What we really want to register is 2nd level domain (****.com)! not 3rd (******.iwantyourmoney.com)!

Also, there's some pseudo country code domain name registration like:

blahblah.cn.com or blahblah.ca.com or blahblah.co.uk.com and stuff like that. THESE ARE 3RD LEVEL DOMAINS!!! Do you want to know what's a 3rd level domain?? Well, get your domain and put a subdomain name on it like this from myself http://rendafixa.qendy.com, this one is a 3rd functional domain name. But my second domain name is QENDY.COM!

So, those pseudo country code domains ARE FAKES! BEWARE!

so many people has wwwFAMOUSDOMAIN.com to take the typin traffic

someone even got wwwmycompanyname.com long time ago heh

for blah.co.uk.com, UK.com are selling sub domains like co.uk.com anything.uk.com so someone registers co.uk.com and start selling

reminds me of uk.co story lol
