My domain hack: http://friejo.se

Recently, I came across the concept of a domain hack.  The idea is to use an odd or little-known internet domain to spell out a word or two for your domain name.  An example is http://nyti.ms, a domain name set up by The New York Times that uses the .ms domain (assigned to the Caribbean island of Montserrat) to create a domain name to looks awfully close to “nytimes.”  Aha, branding!

Anyhow, I thought that would be a cool thing to have for myself, so thanks to the kind people of Sweden and the cheap European registrar Netim, I now am the proud owner of http://friejo.se.  Right now friejo.se simply redirects to this blog, but who knows, it could do something more cool or interesting in the future, and if it does it’ll be here first.

Also, as part of my registration of friejo.se, I’ve set up an e-mail address for people to contact if they have questions or comments about this blog: blog [at] friejo.se.  Feel free to drop me a line, unless it is about how vain it is to register a domain hack, it which case, just leave a snide comment for this post.
