I decided to figure out how many times I could fit my name “Feross” in one URL, with each “Feross” serving a different function. Here is my result:


If you remove a single “feross” from the URL, then you fail and don’t get to see the secret stuff hidden at this location!

Can you name all the feross’s?

Every one serves a different function in the URL.

In order, they are:

  • subdomain
  • domain name
  • TLD - top level domain (technically, there isn’t a .feross …yet!)
  • folder
  • file name
  • file extension
  • “get” parameter
  • “get” value
  • URL anchor (or hash)

Yay for procrastination! Ok, back to studying for finals!
