While browsing the daily newspaper (more info about that here), I made an interesting realization. It’s very easy to find 3 or 4-letter words, right? Because of this, it’s very easy to find many domain names within a book’s pages. Furthermore, domain names don’t necessarily have to be legible words. For example, there’s a popular online game called “agar.io” (http://agar.io). The name looks scrambled like something you’d read in one of the Library’s books. These days, we’re also not limited by .com, .net, and .org names. There’s a huge list of new top-level domains (TLD) released in 2014. You can find them all here: https://www.iana.org/domains/root/db
I ran it through a translator, and it appears to be a Japanese dating service that matches couples together. I wonder what other kinds of random websites could be discovered this way? Remember to always be careful browsing the web. You wouldn’t want to stumble upon a malicious website!
