Get Your Own .MS Domain Name Today!

Microsoft has started using .MS domains to power their web platforms! Luckily for you, .MS isn’t just for Microsoft and you can get your own .ms domain today - if you have $180 to spare!

Yep, that’s right. Microsoft has gone Web 2.0 and is now using “their own” gTLD to push Microsoft-powered web platforms to the next level. While browsing the new Popfly project (which doesn’t run on Linux), we were interested to find ourselves being redirected to “http://popfly.ms/” leading us to wonder. Microsoft isn’t breaking any laws or circumventing any of the usual steps: .MS domain names are officially assigned to one of the last overseas British territories, Montserrat, named by Christopher Columbus back in 1493; but the .ms domain name is open to the public regardless of region or political affiliation.

Just like some people are using .IT (intended for Italy and Italy alone) to power IT-related websites (as in Information Technology, and not anything to do with Italy), Microsoft is using Montserrat’s TLD (and paying 180 USD a domain) to power their Web 2.0 creations.

You can purchase your own .MS domain name and just for kicks, check out http://google.ms

Funnily enough, http://microsoft.ms doesn’t load, and http://msn.ms doesn’t even exist. Interesting…

How long before Microsoft sues to own the .MS tld and everything on it? (all your base are belong to us, anyone?)
