Longest Domain Name

September 24, 2007

After so much browsing and exploring the web, I actually found two sites to claim the longest domain name.



It seems that domain names are limited up to 63 characters only not including the top level domain suffix. But if you count the domain suffix, the first one would win by three characters.

The first one sounds like a non-sense domain name, but according to the site, "Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch
(locally known as Llanfairpwll or Llanfair-PG) is a village on the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales. The upper village is known as Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochuchaf. The suffix -uchaf means "upper" in Welsh. Welsh is the predominant language in Anglesey (Ynys Môn) and much of North Wales."

To find out more about the village, to learn how to pronounce the name, or to find out what it means, you can visit the village website at : www.llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.co.uk

The second holds true to its name as the longest because they do list a collection of world's longest stuff.

An example would be:

What is the longest song in the world?

Before we get to that there is a definition you should know:

aleph-null, aleph-nought, aleph-zero
the smallest infinite integer

Now for the world's longest song:

Aleph-nought bottles of beer on the wall:

Aleph-nought bottles of beer on the wall,
Aleph-nought bottles of beer,
You take one down, and pass it around,
Aleph-nought bottles of beer on the wall.
(Repeat till you pass out)
