In honor of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" hitting theaters on Dec. 18, we’ve rounded up some of the original trilogy’s most iconic intergalactic characters -- many of whom make an appearance in this latest film -- and have given them new names. Domain names, that is.
But there’s a twist: We reimagined their roles in a less intergalactic way. Like, what if Princess Leia became as a hair salon owner? Or Chewbacca decided to ditch the Millennium Falcon to start a clothing line for Wookiees?
With that in mind, we bestowed upon them a domain name befitting of their reimagined identies. Instead of using the default ‘dot-com’ (.com), however, we created meaningful and memorable domain names that better define each character’s business venture by using the newest “not-com” options.
What's a not-com? These are the hundreds of new options to the right of the dot. It’s revolutionizing the way we name website URLs on the Internet.
As Yoda might say: Strong with new choice, the force is. (And so is the Internet.)
