    * Just my luck! :(

    Yesterday me and my friend went searching for a suitable domain name for a gaming site we will be working on. After brain storming and trying at the godaddy domain check, we came across gaminglive.com. We decided that was a fitting name and quite catchy. Thinking that no one would register it that day, we didnt.
    I got up this morning to register it with register4less. Not noticing which extension I had chosen I kept going on the process. All the way and got the paypal recipt. Then I just 'snaped', I just wondered if it was .com I was registering, so I went back to see. I found out that .com was taken over night and I had registered .net. Lucky enough it was not .org or something terriable like that, but .net just isnt the same as .com .

    So now I am going to use the url for maybe a network site and get a different domain name.

    You learn from your mistakes I guess.

    .com is overrated. .net is the bomb!

    When I originally spotted this thread, I mistakenly took "gaming" to mean gambling. How ironic it COULD have been -- bad luck in registering name not good luck for gaming site.

    Just MY luck.
    You'll get fewer complaints from over performing than from over promising.
