    Just having an idle thought and was wondering if anyone knows what the longest, currently registered UK domain name is at the moment, out of interest? :)

    e.g:

    Code:
    ihaveareallylongdomainnamewhichisrathersillyandworthlessbutiregisteredittolookcleverorasauniqueandsillytheoreticaldomainwithaukextensionorsomethingelse.co.uk
    Or, is there a few of the same length?! :?:

    In terms of proper domains and not made up cr*p here's one and it's 58 characters long Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.co.uk it's the name of the longest named town in Wales.

    Don't know if you know but the max characters for a UK domain is 63

    Interesting! Thanks Doodlebug. :)

    I wonder if there's any really old names that pre-date Nominet, that are longer?
