On Monday afternoon, I won the auction for Buena.com. I sent my $24k+ wire transfer yesterday, and it was processed by NameJet. A few hours later, I received the standard Provisioning Complete email from NameJet. The domain registrar listed in the email caught my attention: Gunga Galunga Corporation.

If you have seen Caddyshack, “gunga galunga” may sound familiar to you. Here’s a clip from the movie to remind you:

Typically, the drop catch domain registrar brand names are pretty boring. In my email history, I see company names like Postal Domains, Midwest Domains, eNom 375, eNom 443….etc. Since these are all drop catching registrars and aren’t really customer facing, the brand name doesn’t really matter much and there’s nothing really interesting about them. I don’t recall seeing any other humorous registrar names like this one before.

Buena.com should have a short life at Gunga Galunga Corporation. It will be provisioned to my Network Solutions account for about 60 days and ultimately be transferred to GoDaddy (unless it sells sooner).
