Playing With Domains

Some time ago, I read a comment from a Wikidot site admin complaining that there were no other domains available than "wikidot.com". This was, I guess, before we opened custom domains to all sites.

So here's a small experiment. I've taken some domains and set them to wildcard at Wikidot.com's IP address. Thus, any Wikidot site can use these domains. Subdomains only: the top-level domains will redirect to this site or other existing sites.

I've configured:

  • An easy to pronounce domain: wikiturf.com and a non-profit version, wikiturf.org.
  • A 'cute' domain name: ject.pro.
  • A short domain name: dg0.eu.

Here are some aliases for this blog site, defined as custom domains on this site:

If you find this useful, let us know!

Update: now also available: wikidotted.com, wikify.me, and mtjaw.com. :-) It may take an hour or two for the DNS on these new domains to settle down.
