    I learnt a ton about domains and domaining before I found this amazing place...

    Trying to register a .us and the registrar wont let me unless I create a statement declaring I am from the US?

    WTF is this about I always heard it was ok to own from countries you dont live in...

    No its not.

    I believe that you cant register .eu if you dont live in it too.

    I just grabbed the .eu instead but p1ssed because IMHO .us is far more valuable.

    Surprised at this because I have heard of ppl for years buying domains when they arent residents.

    I think .us has become hot as all others I dont seem to get asked.
