Thank you for sending us the details of your recent record proposal for
'Registering the worlds longest computer domain name'
After having examined the information you sent, and given full
consideration to your proposal, I am afraid we are unable to accept your
proposal as a record.
This record is currently rested, which means that no one can attempt this
record and become a new record holder. It has been rested because there is
no merit whatsoever in this. It takes little to no effort and is similar
to taking the largest number in the world and then adding 1 to it.
I appreciate you have gone to a lot of effort, and we are delighted to
hear from people around the world with their record claims and
suggestions. However, given the sheer scope of the records on our
database, and the growing number of people contacting us with record
claims and suggestions, we need to exercise some editorial control over
what is and is not accepted as a record.
I appreciate this may be disappointing for you, but I hope this does not
deter you from trying again. We are always keen to hear from people who
wish to break Guinness World Records. If you should need any advice
regarding breaking an existing record, please contact us again quoting the
above reference number. Alternatively, you can contact us through our
Once again, thank you for writing. We wish you every success with any
future record-breaking endeavours.
