Pirates need domains too! Or at least that’s how it seems Thursday as there are a couple of promotions in celebration of Talk Like a Pirate Day.
HostGator is offering .com, .net, .org, .biz and .info domains for $5/per year as well as 44.44 percent off hosting:

Name.com is asking its Twitter followers to share their “pirate name” for Talk Like a Pirate Day for a chance to win a .com domain:

Last year, OpenNIC launched dotPirate. It’s not an official TLD, but anyone using OpenNIC’s DNS servers could access the .pirate domain. OpenNIC doesn’t appear to be accepting registrations for .pirate anymore, but you can still get .geek and .parody though.
