Frequently Asked Questions

What are the chances of collision?

If every human on Earth worked as a GUID generator, and they spent their entire working life generating guids at one guid per second, without even stopping for lunch, then by the time every human on earth had retired, the chances of a collision would be about 50%.

Do guids make the best database identifiers?

Yes. But I don't use them much for that myself.

Should you put GUIDs in URLs?

No. Don't Put Guids in URLs

And if you do, 1 is enough!

Can I register a domain named after a specific guid value?

Yes you certainly can, but hurry as they are going fast.

For example, this one is already taken:

http://00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000.com

And certainly http://00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000001.com is parked.

But as of September 2020, http://00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000002.com is still available.

Get in on it while you can.

There will never be another opportunity like this.
