Funniest domain name story of the month! wtf@wtf.wtf (???)

tlds

This is one of the funniest stories I have heard in the past few months!

Imagine this: You are having issues with your email and then out of anger you try to send an email to a crazy email address that you are 100% sure does not exist.

Then you get a reply!!!

This is what happened to Mike that was having issues with his aol.com email. He was angry when he sent an email to wtf@wtf.wtf and it didn’t even cross his mind that this could be a real email address. Then he was surprised when he got a reply. (and probably surprised because his AOL email was actually working!)

So, in case you are wondering, yes. There is a domain name extension .WTF, Malik registered the domain name wtf.wtf and then created an email address wtf@wtf.wtf!

Mike just like anyone else didn’t expect that such an email address would exist.

Here is the email sequence:

  1. I’m surprised Rick Schwartz isn’t the owner of this one!

  2. LOL, but the reply should have been “WTF do you want?” ?

  3. This is a too crazy to be true kind of name!!
    I am sure there are many people out there who
    are filthy rich and would want a fancy and cool
    name such as this one. Crazy!

  4. wtf@wtf.wtf email address is freakin sick! I was like WTF!!!? when I saw this post. LOL

  5. This domain is really cool! It’s nice and short and it makes perfect sense too. What The Fu*k!!! Lol 🤩 I’m curious to know if it’s for sale? If it is, I wonder how much would the price be? 🤔 I think this name is a keeper as nowadays it’s almost impossible to find a nice and short tld.tld domain name and most are registry-reserved. If I own this name I would only sell if I get an offer that I can’t afford to reject.
