One or many?

I registered the domain name during a period when the great external malls with their foodcourts still thrived.

Now, many years later, there is a something eerie and abandoned atmosphere about the name foodcourt that lacked ten or twenty years ago.

The foodcourt was an invention to gather most of the restaurants within the mall into one shared space. Sometimes, according to legend, the restaurants differed in style and cuisine, but could share a common kitchen. Thus, the Foodcourt can be regarded as a symbiosis between one and many.
