The .dd was the assigned ccTLD for the German Democratic Republic
(Deutsche Demokratische Republik -> DDR -> .dd), and it has
been in use in the late 1980 and early 1990, but only "locally".
It could not be reached "from outside" as it never entered the
DNS root servers.
Today, .dd could be used for "copy & convert" services. See
"man dd" for details. :-)

It's probably a game restricted to wealthy players. :-)

The current development of "freely chosen TLDs" leads to the
assumption that "classic" TLDs aren't that important anymore,
so .bsd or .freebsd would make sense. I'm not sure about how
far users will "adapt" to the concept that e-mail addresses
like doc at en.freebsd or web addresses like www.example.bsd are
valid - or they try to add .com, .net or .org in a "reflex"
manner just to receive errors. :-)
And now take into mind that Unicode characters can also be
used, so http://µy.Fŕ€€bSĐ/ isn't far away. And think about
all the funny attack vectors enabled by "similarly looking",
but actually different URLs... ;-)
Happy FreeBSD user since 4.0
