localhost .be

December 2000: Liberalisation of the .be tld
I preregistered localhost.be for fun at XS4All (currently Evonet in Belgium).
Rumours go that they have a "fast" preregistration system whatever that meant. Anyhow, localhost.be finally got registered by yours truly.

I ordered myself a webhosting and localhost.be went live.
The purpose of the domain? None whatsoever.
Learning a bit of HTML at first. Later on playing with (X)HTML / CSS / PHP /MySQL.

There are some downsides though:

But hey, you don't hear me complain. It's a nice domainname...
