Have You Secured Your ‘…Sucks’ Domain Name?

Date Wednesday, 28 October 2009  Posted in Category Domain Name & Web Hosting  Tags   Comment No Comments »

If you are the Internet strategiser for a big brand, please consider securing your organisation’s domain name with the ‘…sucks’ word such as companysucks.com before others register it.

I have found out the following domain names are not available:

StreamyxSucks.com
AirAsiaSucks.com
MalaysiaAirlinesSucks.com
AASucks.com (American Airline)
MalaysiaSucks.com
BNsucks.com (Barnes and Noble)
GodaddySucks.com
GoogleSucks.com
YahooSucks.com
FacebookSucks.com
AmazonSucks.com
NokiaSucks.com
SonySucks.com
SamsungSucks.com
DellSucks.com
BMWSucks.com
MercedesSucks.com
ToyotaSucks.com
HondaSucks.com
FordSucks.com
HSBCsucks.com
CitibankSucks.com / CitiSucks.com
SCsucks.com (Standard Chartered)
MicrosoftSucks.com
WhiteHouseSucks.com

Domain name with ‘sucks’ / ‘suck’ word may not be necessary to your organisation and there’s no ROI, but if you found out how your brand name is being damaged, like StreamyxSucks.com then you’ll feel 10 bucks is worth every penny.
