Bought a new domain - chickfort.com

A couple of days ago, I bought a domain named 'chickfort.com'. I have been wanting to own a '.com' domain for quite a while now, and I didn't want to buy one from a reseller. Every now and then, I used to go to one of the domain registrants and search for interesting names that would come into my mind. This has been going on for quite a while, and I finally found a domain name that is short enough and is a combination of two simple English words.

The aforementioned is not the main reason why I chose to buy this domain. The words 'chick' and 'fort' coupled together could be loosely translated into the endonym of my hometown, Kozhikode. Additionally, I believe that the domain name could be potentially used for a wide-variety of purposes.

The interesting thing is that, I have been receive calls from a few software and web development companies after I made this purchase. I wonder if the domain registrar is secretly sending the data to the marketing teams in the region. They could gain from selling my contact information, or, by making me purchase their "privacy protection" feature. I have owned this domain, 'buddygo.net', for quite a while and I never received such nagging calls in the past, and that adds to my aforementioned suspicion.

I have temporarily redirected the new domain to this blog, so that such marketing teams would find something active in the domain and refrain themselves from attempting to contact me.
