Late.ly etc


Surprise, surprise, late.ly was registered by Matt Mullenweg, a WordPress founder. Matt loves domains hacks and he probab.ly already has something in mind of it. In any case, it is a good token for .ly's.

In last two months, the Libyan registry was busy with cashing in, people final.ly started to buy .ly's.

So during 9th-12th of December Libyan Spider grabbed the most attractive domains, still available and will probably resell them as premium. Few of those missing now on the prime market: annual.ly, common.ly, general.ly, home.ly, immediate.ly, nice.ly, private.ly, prompt.ly, random.ly, rapid.ly, quarter.ly, sole.ly, special.ly, successful.ly... Good jingles, without any doubt.

Other good domains: elegant.ly, legal.ly, and logical.ly. Still quite few available.

    For those who love .ly domain name hacks, skilful.ly , peaceful.ly , normal.ly , multip.ly , initial.ly , hard.ly and grateful.ly are still available, I might come up with other catchy names, please enjoy 🙂

  2. 2

    You are certain.ly right, these domains will pick up, without any doubt.

    Although, I prefer not to call them domain hacks but domain jingles. Sounds so much better.

  3. 3

    I agree with you marko, “domain jingles” sound nice :), there are about 18573 words ends with ly, according to nic.ly there are only (3659) registered domains that is in total, means this number includes domain names that doesn’t end with ly, so there is still strong availability and strong chance for who looking for memorable catchy domain.

    if is allowed to write in here the steps on how someone can search and check the big list, my idea is to make to easy for everyone to:

    1- check the big list that has about 300,000 domain jingles, so you will be able to see the 18573 words ends with ly.

    2- check the availability using the whois server of .ly domains.

    3- showing you where you could register them easi.ly

    these three steps missing the links, so if I get permission to add the links I will.

    Certain.ly 😉

    multip.ly can have a potential trademark dispute with multiply.com.
    the rest are fine, I believe.

  6. 6

    Although, I have not seen any trademark hold by multiply, probably difficult to get. To general and is used everywhere else (http://multiply.com/info/corp).

    1- check the big list that has about 300,000 domain jingles:

    Use this link: http://xona.com/domainhacks/suggest/aly.htm

    2- check the availability using the whois server of .ly domains. you can use this link http://domains.ly/tools/whois.php

    3- showing you where you could register them easi.ly,

    you can use http://libyanspider.com/lydomains.php (libyanspider.com) the cost of .ly domains is $75. usual.ly it takes from 6 to 48 hours to have your domain up and running, it depend on if you are new client or exciting client, most.ly no more than 24 hours.

    Amazing.ly, Ma.tt h.as al.so register.ed “gir.ly”!

    And that was back in July when everyone else was busy with .me hustle.

    “Late.ly – Gir.ly” : to me it jingles as two magazines.

  9. 9

    No wonder, Ma.tt has some 300 domains in his portfolio. Or, probab.ly more. Good job Ma.tt.

    I was able to grab these .ly domains: clear.ly, wide.ly, nice.ly, rare.ly, youth.ly for the purpose of resale.
    If you are interested in premium .ly domains, you can find a list on http://domains.ly you can buy any domain from there or get inspiration to register a new email, many are still available, such as cheap.ly 🙂 which can be a good idea for online store.

  11. 11

    Nice domains indeed. You may wish to update the prices on domains.ly as the fees were cut by half.

    I am certain.ly going for cheap.ly while it is still cheap 😉

  12. 12

    Hopeful.ly is not register.ed yet and brave.ly I’m giving some of my selection list for everyone to have the chance to register the best domain jingles cheap.ly 😉


    mad.ly not to act quick.ly 😀

  13. 13

    🙂 quick.ly indeed.

  14. 14

    Also don’t forget about insure.ly and lawyer.ly…

  15. 15

    The only issue with .ly experienced up to today were so called Middle East fallouts, but that only if you want to change your dns.


    As one does it only once in a while, when migrating to the other server, its bearable price for nice domain hacks, don’t you agree?


  16. 16

    I have also discovered that Ma.tt registered wordpress.mu

    Any idea why doesn’t he use it?

    He is certain.ly the domain hack king.

    Red Irish:

    In 2008 Matt Mullenweg [a.k.a. Ma.tt] also went for domain ear.ly. In 2009 he had prolonged his .ly domains for another year but they all are down. Not so much boiling for the moment. Any insights?
