What Happens When You Type Your Name + Dot Com In Your Address Bar?

What's in your name?

Have you ever typed your name or a friend's name + .com into your browser's address bar?

Usually, you'll get a domain placeholder site, a broken link, or nothing at all. But sometimes, you'll find a few internet gems...

Kimberly.com

kimberly.com

Like this young lady from China, who was an internet dog photo pioneer.

Lori.com

lori.com

Or Lori, who took the word "homepage" quite literally.

And these pages that let people "connect" with others who share the same name:

Eric.com

Wendy.com

Or poor Gail, who is sick of everyone who can't spell "gmail.com" correctly:

Gail.com

Robert.com

robert.com

Robert, you're the go-to guy for Halal products.

Britney.com

britney.com

Of course, Britney.com belongs to the one and only Britney Spears.

If your name is Max, guess what you get? CHUCK NORRIS:

Max.com

Kim.com

kim.com

Whaddaya know, Kim.com belongs to internet entrepeneur Kim Dot Com.

Sometimes, you'll get something just plain weird:

Hank.com

hank.com

"Oh, this is a page from the '90s." Wrong. This page was last updated in 2013.

So, what happens when you type you or a friend's name + .com in your browser? If you get anything fun, weird or bizarre, send us a screenshot of your site in the comments below!
