Question

anyone know about this URL?

I'll space it out so nobody accidentally clicks on it

friend .ly


Ok not the brightest bulb in the computer world.
I'm familiar with URLs that end in .com .org .net even .ca (canadian) But was not sure what .ly meant a as in url friend .ly

When I google ".ly" it I find information that the ".ly" is Lybian. . So is friend.ly a Lybian based company? The domain name and servers in Lybia?

Domain name in Lybia.

That's doesn't say anything about where the servers are located or the staff resides or who registered the domain.

Plus..

Also http://www.friend.ly/about shows that the staff consists of 10 people out of Mountain View, California.

The .ly domain is just used to make a cool name for the site. Kind of like bit.ly
