Following on from a thread on the sitepoint forums I decided to see if “myName.com” was available.
It turns out it isn’t. MarkFord.com is registered to a Ford dealer in the US of A. This is a downside to having the surname Ford, the only other one I can think of is people pronouncing it “Fouwd”.
Woah! this is a bit spooky!! I just looked up markjford.com; it’s not being used at the moment, but it’s registered to another Mark Ford in the same town as me! I didn’t realise my name was that common.
