Googol/Google is taken, so the abogados like Avogadro's, eh? I think
there are a number of Mersenne primes (up to 2tothe6972593-1.com so far)
that are much larger than a googol.
And according to an old number theory book on my shelf, the 1,945th
Fermat number is roughly 10^600 times larger than a googol. F1945.com is
probably still available. The largest Fermat number as of last year is
a hefty F382447, but as a domain name it would score low on recall.
To have an easy-to-remember domain, it would be great to bribe someone and
get S.com, after Skewes' number (S), developed for estimates of prime
numbers. S = e^e^e^79, or about 10^10^10^34.
