Barry Cyrus Dot Com? Of Course…

In a quite boastful way to celebrate my upcoming fourth third blog anniversary (yeah, right), I thought of buying myself a web domain. As in The Big  Blinking Dot Com. I was willing to upgrade my WP account and my, well, blogger-self in general. Only to find out via GoDaddy that…

FML: GoDaddy says BarryCyrus.com has been, sniff, sold. Grr.

BarryCyrusDotCom is already taken.

WHAT?! ASDFGHJKL??!

BarryCyrusDotCom is already taken???! I was more of mad than disappointed. I felt like that familiar, sassy, black&white comic strip with the character who cries a long and winding “FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUU!” This isn’t just a trade on web property; this is identity crisis to the core!

Whoever you are, you domain-stealer! You slut-faced,  ill-pathetic, scrotum-breath clone: Do me a favor and melt.

About barrycyrus

Hi, I'm Barry Viloria, 21 and not a blogger. I occasionally bitch about what's hot, what's not, what's life-threatening and what's Blake Lively wearing but I refuse to be called a "blogger." That's it.

  1. nice and not nice! hahahaha :))
    para kang nawalan ng identity eh noh. btw, i sent you an email and sorry to delay the project. hehe

    why not try barrycyr.us?

    i checked and it’s still available. hehe

  2. Hey Barry!

    It must be very aggravating to find a domain name that you really like . . . only to find that it’s no longer available. You could try other extensions (.net, .org) or even opt for .ph. The only setback is its expense.

    How about looking for idiotbox.com, idiotbox.net, etc.? I believe it would be easier to find your blog if its name was the same as its domain.

    Hope you’ll find a suitable domain.

    Cheers!

    • I somehow wanted barrycyrus.com to top them all cos it would look like I just dropped off the DotWordpress, and that’s it. It also sounds proper and still me, which I like most. I bet idiotbox.com is taken as well, hmm.

  3. OMG , it’s like your identity was robbed then and there. why not ‘thebarrycyrus.com’? it’s the closest 🙂

  4. magdemanda ka sir barry. ahahahahaha
    wow dapat ka ng dumatcom talaga

    i agree with you na dapat barrycyrus.com siya dapat no more no less
    in short insert wordpress (dahil nabili na ang .com) just kidding
    hintayin nalang natin magexpire nung unang nakabili
    or verybarrycyrus.com, therealbarrycyrus.com basta makakaisip ka din
    keep on…
    be blessed!

    • I think the site’s going to expire ng August this year. Pero I was like, di na bale, as long as the barrycyrus.com is not a porn site that mistakes my identity for it, I’m good 🙂

  5. awww…hope you find some other domain name soon. ako maswerte lang na wala pang nagmamayari ng pangalan ko kaya nakuha ko agad siya. ahaha!

  6. Oops, Taken na. Haha. Sa akin kaya, me mang-agaw pa nung muntanga kong title? Haha.

  7. Bwahahaha. Your reaction was priceless.

    Try barrycus.com ;p

  8. Ako din, gusto ko ng dotcom!

    Play with your name na lang.hehe 🙂

  9. How about BarryCyrusDotNET? Kung gusto mo pala ng free web hosting i-email mo ako. Domain name na lang ang babayaran mo, the web hosting thingy is on me. Kung interesado ka lang naman. =)

  10. OH NO! Terrible! I think if it were me I’d hunt the person down… or demand the internet refund my life in some way… and then immediately have my identity checked to make sure it wasn’t stolen and someone wasn’t out there using my name, social security number, AND credit card.

    Could you use .org? That’s pretty normal.

  11. That sucks but I hope that you can find a suitable domain name once you decided that you want a domain name anyway (it sounded like a mouthful).

  12. Hahaha now that sucks. Nakakainis nga yung ganyan, I also tried a bunch of different titles before ending up with TheCreativeDork, which was a blessing in disguise for me. Hehehe.

  13. bigaten. 3 years old ka na. teka sino kaya kumuha ng dapat ay dotcom mo! haha

  14. ahahaha ! pagbigayan mo na, o baka naman para sayo talaga un ? malay mo, gift nya sayo un sya na bumili pero para sayo pala . hehe
    hapi aniv!:)

  15. I felt the same way when I found out someone had taken holycrap.com
