The .SO domain is back and only $14.49 to register, renew and transfer.
What the heck is .SO?
If domains were people, .COM would be the slick dude who drove an Aston Martin and wowed women with his mad Ninja skills. NET would be the sidekick and .ORG the benevolent group that hires the two to find what happened to .SO.
.SO has had a rough go. First off, its home country of Somalia has been ravaged by ongoing civil war. In a strange, real-life twist, .SO became a refugee, moving to a company in Pittsburgh. Then, to add to .SO's woes, that company tanked. From there, the domain languished in virtual anonymity until ICANN had it moved back to Somalia. Today it is run by the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications in Somalia, and it can be purchased from anywhere in the world.
And since it's been down and out for so long, many opportunities are still available, ones that you won't find with other domains. If .COM and .NET won't have you, give .SO the opportunity to showcase your business, hobbies and ideas. Like you it's proven it can hang tough through thick and thin.
