I am astonished and baffled at the absence of ebooks.horse

I really hope 'frontend.horse' is matched by 'backend.horse' as part of 'panto.horse'

Great post. The zone file’s potential knows no bounds!
It is un BINDed

Are there similar lists for other gtlds? Can we see every .space or .computer?

rotating.horse

Does exactly what it says on the tin.

For that matter, which new gtld has the fewest active domains (3000ish doesn't seem like a lot but I suspect .horse isn't nearly the least popular gtld)?

I am amused by how many of these are more or less web 1.0 zombocom vibe websites.

I has forgotten that the guys from The Greatest Generation podcast had registered jazz.horse. Thanks for the chuckle!

My favorite one I randomly clicked on: http://420.horse/

Sadly, most of these are just landing pages for squatters, .horse domains are too stupid not be used more. Naturally I had to have one. Sadly all the really good horse jokes were taken by the time I went to register sheep.horse.

So they're hoping that having a string of these would somehow be...remuda-rative?

dreadfulbookofquestions.horse is such a tantalizing domain name, I'm disappointed it doesn't load anything for me.

Apparently you guys were just champing at the bit to make some horse puns.

lookatthat.horse (note that it redirects) is an absolute gem.

I guess it falls to me to remind everyone of the canonical .horse site, endless.horse.

Oh wow, I feel called out.

In my defense, I only got one so I could set up an email forward and have something ridiculous to tell the cashier at stores when they insisted I provide an email address to receive discounts.

The annual cost of the domain is more than worth it to see the look on their face when you slowly, very clearly say "toothpaste... at burrito... dot horse."

Also, "You heard me."

That's the mane point of Metafilter. Stop trying to stirrup trouble.

Oh hey, I made this.
(If you're interested in why or how, you can read a little about that here.)

Are there similar lists for other gtlds? Can we see every .space or .computer?

I have actually generated a few others but not published them as sites - .africa, .nexus, and .boats for example. It would be somewhat trivial to set them up now but, well, why? This is about horses.

For that matter, which new gtld has the fewest active domains (3000ish doesn't seem like a lot but I suspect .horse isn't nearly the least popular gtld)?

This project actually somewhat started as an attempt to buy a .nexus domain (http://torment.nexus, specifically). In my looking into doing so, I discovered that there are in fact zero .nexus domains. So I guess that's one gtld with zero. I couldn't say off the top of my head how the others were doing but it's seemingly very possible to find out.

No problem there, what you want is the really baaaaaa'd horse jokes.

I am unreasonably annoyed that swift.horse is just for sale in some crass commercial transaction, and not a convenient link to the amazing track by that name from Ko Otani's Shadow Of The Colossus soundtrack.
posted by mhoye at 7:22 AM on May 6


I appreciate that the .horse NIC rules are pretty low key. Anyone can register a domain name, you don't need to be a horse. Namecheap wants $26/year for a random name. No easy way to see prices for "premium" words.

Nice work secretdark! Is this a list of all registered .horse domains, or just the ones that have a DNS entry set up? (It's possible that's the same list, but it doesn't need to be.)

Sad that flying.horse goes to a parking page when it should go here.

I've been through the list
Of the .horse domains
It felt good to be browsing the names

On Safari
You can't search through domains
So a guy wrote a python script, to acclaim

That's... an interesting question. It's every domain in the zone file but I just assumed that was every domain regardless of whether there were any actual DNS records. Truthfully the parsing script just de-dupes everything and strips out the noise. I'll have to actually check the zone file out in more detail and up my understanding.

@borborygmi: Perfect.
