New Domain Name – RK.MD

Most of you are familiar with domain name extensions like .com, .net, and .gov. In addition to these are extensions which are specific to countries (.us – USA, .uk – Great Britain, .ca – Canada, .cn – China, and so on). Knowing this, I decided to exercise my mind’s ridiculous nerdy yet creative side.

Matt Mullenweg, the founding developer of WordPress, has an interesting domain name: See how his first name is his entire domain name (with the addition of a period in between)? The “.tt” extension is actually for Trinidad and Tobago, so he had to register the domain name through the country after making sure that “ma” was not taken. After trying to do something similar (like https://ris.hi), I discovered that “.hi” is not an extension. I got to thinking, and then it finally hit me. My future degree will be an MD., so if “.md” were possible, I would be victorious. As it turns out, this is Moldova’s country code top-level domain. 🙂

Then, I wanted the shortest but most relevant name possible. What better than my initials? Since the registration price is rather expensive, no one else had purchased “”, so it was a perfect match. The entire website is only five characters long compared to the fifteen characters of my previous, so in my pursuit of higher simplicity, this was fantastic.

This also means that at some point, I’ll shut down; therefore, please update your bookmarks to
