Ergonomic URL typing ('ddg' harder to type than 'doo')

DuckDuckGo can be accessed via duckduckgo.com and ddg.gg
I'm used to typing 3 letters before pressing enter to enter address (img-, fac-, goo-, one-, rom-, twi-)
Those 3 letters are easy to type, but ddg is a bit harder (hand requires motion)

I'm suggesting something easier to 3-letter:
dkdk.gg ? ('dkdk')
doockdoockgo ? ('doo')
dookdookgo ? ('doo')

I've been pondering this one a bit... I really think that it comes down to personal preference. I'm able to type ddg.gg without hand motion, using only 2 fingers on my left hand. (except to get to the .)

Maybe you create your own custom URL for DDG adding an entry to your systems HOSTS file? I've not tried that, but it might work.

Thanks!
