hi, i was wondering about domain names. there are loads avaliable- .com, .net, .org etc... i noticed that sites such as- godaddy.com advertise newe domains that will be avliable i.e. .so . i was wondering if it would be possible to have a custom domain name ending i.e- chris.pirillo and no .com etc... or google.search. if this is possible i was also wondering if one would be able to host this domain name ending from their own property i.e home/ office.

No, the only domains you can get are top level, or whatever is available. The ICANN decides what domains (such as .com, .net, etc) can be used. The only thing you can use is what is accepted by them.

Perhaps he is referring to the domains in the uk that end in yourname.com.uk ? I have wonder this too, is this the standard or are they sold by a third party that owns com.uk?
