Facebook says .LOL is dead – NiceNIC.NET

Facebook says LOL is dead, but the domain name comes out tomorrow. Get ready to LOL on August 11, 2015.

Uniregistry will launch the .lol top level domain name in general availability on Tuesday. Annual registration costs appear to be about $30 retail, but many registrars are offering discounted first year registrations.

I’ve made it a point to never type LOL in a message, because, c’mon, do you ever really laugh out loud when IM’ing with someone?

I’m not the only one. Facebook has posted some research suggesting LOL is on its way out, prompting headlines today such as ‘Haha’ has killed ‘lol’ and No one says LOL anymore.

But no one applied for the .haha top level domain, so it’s .lol this time around.

Also coming up this week for new domains: Early access for Donuts domain names .dog, .theater, .taxi, .hockey and .run.
