THE BEST MOTHER****** WEBSITE

A journey into satire behind a questionable domain name.

Warning: Extreme satire and vulgar words ahead.


"And it's f***ng perfect." - Random German Guy

Welcome back readers to another edition of Nameshiba Domain Mysteries.

We dive deeply into the rabbit holes of some of the more interesting domain names across the internet and catalog them here on Nameshiba for your viewing.

Let's dive right into [ Domain Mysteries #2 ] -- the MOTHERF*****WEBSITE.COM



Screencap from "MotherfuckingWebsite.com"



According to recent WHOIS data -- themotherfuckingwebsite.com was created in 2013 and will likely be around for a long, long time to come.

The purpose of the website is to encourage other people to go back to the pure and unadulterated naked text on-screen format of age-old websites while decrying "website design" as making information less fluid and harder to digest in a form of complete satire.

According to the "Random German Guy" he sums up his ethos of why plain text is superior below:
  • Shit's lightweight and loads fast
  • Fits on all your shitty screens
  • Looks the same in all your shitty browsers
  • The motherfucker's accessible to every asshole that visits your site
  • Shit's legible and gets your fucking point across (if you had one instead of just 5mb pics of hipsters drinking coffee)


Hey now -- thanks for the callout.

The author begins to write deeply about how plain text is superior to every single other form of webdesign invoking the following string of words:

"You spent hours on it and added 80 kilobytes to your fucking site, and some motherfucker jabbing at it on their iPad with fat sausage fingers will never see that shit. Not to mention blind people will never see that shit, but they don't see any of your shitty shit."

It is obvious that this man cares deeply about plain text.

He continues in his rant where he actively lays out the 3 pillars of his master plan.
  • It's fucking lightweight --  clarifying why simple and easy to read is where to go.
  • It's responsive -- according to the author even a Tamagatchi can run it.
  • It fucking works -- he brags how it loads seamlessly in IE6.
​​​​​​​And he's not alone.

There were many who came before and many who came after with their love of plain text and white backgrounds. This is not just the only "motherfuckingwebsite.com" on the internet.

There has been a number of copycats over the years claiming that they have found the next "holy grail of plain text.

Others in favor of the Plain Text Domain Name Crusade:

The plain text underworld is really quite something, huh?

Until next time -- here was a little glimpse of a domain and web-designer underworld that even this blogger can not crack.
