I had absolutely no idea there was a .LOL domain name extension until tonight when I was looking through articles on one of my favorite news aggregators, Y Combinator’s Hacker News. That’s when I saw a link to colors.lol a website that comes up with funny names for hexadecimal colors.
If you’ve ever written a little bit of HTML code then you know that hexadecimal colors are used when you want to color just about anything from text to links to backgrounds. While I’m not quite sure why someone took the time to give these colors funny names, someone did, and it’s actually pretty funny IMO.
While it’s certainly not going to win me over as a .LOL investor, I do think it’s actually a pretty slick use of a .LOL domain. If you’re a web developer I’d probably bookmark this as a actually a pretty handy site if you want to have some fun while picking colors for your next project.
Do you know of any other .LOL websites? If so feel free to share in the comment section below.
