Fight Against Maturity

Would you spell that, please?

A website devoted to part of a Welsh village features in a list of the longest internet addresses in Europe.

A Birmingham man registered the 63-character address named after Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch in Anglesey.

The address – http://www.llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochuchaf.eu – actually refers to the upper part of the Welsh-speaking village. It is the maximum number of characters allowed and is recognised as the longest valid internet name in the world.

Keith Wood registered the domain name with EURid, the group managing the new European .eu domain.


There is also an alternative URL registered for those who aren’t quite up to llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogochuchaf.eu. Try http://www.llanfair.wales.com.
