With almost 400 million domains registered worldwide, there is no shortage of decent domain name registrations, especially with 1400+ new domain extensions to choose from and a speculation of more to hit the market beyond 2020.

There are approximately 145 million .com domains (~35%) registered worldwide. Most people will likely guess .net and .org to be respectively 2nd and 3rd in line behind .com, accounting for 5-10% of .com registrations. But believe it or not, both extensions are respectively 5th and 7th.

In between all the fun and memories made, I managed to capture a few interesting domain names being used, especially domain names used by churches.

Reading the title, one is likely to assume that I’ve not used spellcheck or Grammarly. While it’s likely and highly possible, that’s not the case this day.

In fact, I had never heard of Be More Pacific until I was invited to lunch by another friend and brother, Youtuber Chris Massie.

It had been a while since we last caught up, and Chris thought it to be a great idea to catch and shoot his next episode in the series “Best Filipino Food in Austin…” And what a time we had too!
