I did a double take when I saw this domain name yesterday

I did a double take when I was driving home yesterday. I saw an interesting domain name as I passed by a truck. It took a few moments for it to hit me. Was that really what I just saw? I had to turn the car around to get a better look. Take a look at this picture and I think you’ll understand my reaction: Yes, that’s a .us.com domain name, one of the third level domain name options offered by CentralNic. It’s rare to come across these domain names, and I don’t think I’ve ever seen one one promoted offline. Based on DomainTools historical whois records and Archive.org, the company started using Hoodz.com.us but later realized it also needed Hoodz.us. Hoodz.us now forwards to Hoodz.us.com.
