What GoDaddy Recommends When You Accidentally Check for the Availability of Ho.com

We promise this is a true story. We were trying to reserve a domain name on GoDaddy today and accidentally hit "submit" before we had finished typing in the name. We had only punched in the first two letters: "h" and "o."

Verified True!  I checked godaddy myself.

1) The folks at Godaddy do have a sense of humor, so this might be a plant.
2) There was an error stating this "ho" was too short for a domain name.

Note:  All of the 3 character domains (in every .com combination) have been registered for quite some time.

In any case, my personal favorite is:  OfficialHo.com
