The In's and Out's of Pre-Owned Domain Names
I don't know about you, but sometimes it seems like all of the
best domain names have already been taken. On more than one
occasion, I've come up with a great domain name for a site, only
to find that someone else had already purchased it. I can live
with that, but sometimes I've found that it has been purchased
by some scum domain scavenger, and that's really annoying.
A domain scavenger is someone who purchases a whole bunch of
Sins of The Internet: Domain Sniper
The internet sure makes it possible to do things quickly,
sometimes so quickly it will make your head spin. One day your
site is selling lots of product or is very popular, and the next
no one is visiting. Perhaps your site got kicked out of a major
search engine or some competitor hijacked your page and your
listing. Or perhaps someone just brought a new site online which
is simply gaining all of your traffic.
Or perhaps you just forgot to renew your ...
Domain Name Slamming
Today I received a notice in the mail claiming that my domain
name was about to expire. The letter was written in extremely
alarming terms, as if my entire world would be destroyed forever
if I was stupid enough to allow the name to expire. The letter
made it clear that I could renew immediately and should, because
if the domain expired I would, of course, lose it and thus life
as I knew it would come to a close.
Closer examination revealed that the ...
Are you getting the service that you require from your domain
registrar? Actually, thinking about it for a minute, it might be
a better question to ask, do you even know what services are
available? Are you aware that you can shop around and get better
prices, more features and far better customer service?
Guess what? All domain registrars are not the same.
Okay, let's back up a minute. Way back when the internet was
young (maybe 5 years ago) ...
Dot-Com Will Always be King!
Look out! The new domains are coming! "Dot-biz is going to be
the next coming of dot-com," I recently read in an article in
the Denver Post. The buzz has begun. Seven new top-level domains
have been approved by ICANN, the organization that governs
domains, and could be available as early as spring of this year.
The new domains approved are .biz, .info, .aero, .coop, .musuem,
.pro, and .name. Pre-registration sites like,
PreRegisterYourDomains.com, already have ...

name back to the legal copyright holder, although sometimes
there are other reasons. This is considered a violation of the

Branding vs Naming
Many people say that the name of a website should be original. It should convey some sense of branding unlike any other site. They say your name should not be generic.
The truth of this matter is that branding is more developed by how you interact with people than by what your name is. Your name can be used to help develop brand, but many smart webmasters use their ...
Is Your Domain Name A Trademark Infringement?
By Shelley Lowery
I recently received an email from a concerned, fellow Internet business owner, asking for my opinion on an issue that could literally destroy his Internet business and the business of several other domains involved.
He had received legal notice from a prominent company, stating that he needed to relinquish his use and rights to his web site domain name because it contained three letters that infringed upon their trademark and ...

'Stop Me Before I Domain Again'
They appear to be average American women. They meet in parenting
chat rooms and discussion lists to exchange photos of their
kids, cheer on each other's pregnancies and ccasionally complain
about their husbands' snoring. They swap recipes and advice on
schools and diets. They seem normal in every way.
But these women share an obsession - a dark secret that their
offline friends may not understand.

It Could Happen To You - Part 1
No, I'm not talking about the warm and fuzzy movie that was on
cable the other night with Nicholas Cage and Brigitte Fonda. I'm
talking about another type of experience altogether - one of the
decidedly cold and nasty variety.
You know what cybersquatting is, right? It's when someone
registers a domain name that heretofore has been someone else's
trademark, with the intent to hold the name for ransom.
Sometimes these people identify ...
KNOW YOUR RIGHTS
Domain Name Registrations Generally
As a general rule, you can register any domain name that is not
already registered (subject to trademark considerations
discussed below). If your domain name is sufficiently
distinctive, for example, jtdbizopps.com, the bit before the
.com may also be a common law trademark (unless, of course, it's
registered and then it's a registered trademark). If you DO have
a distinctive domain name, then the discussion in ...
Choosing A Domain Registrar
Since Network Solutions lost its monopoly over the domain name
registration business, a multitude of competing registrars and
thousands of resellers have popped up. Now a domain buyer may
choose between these various sites at various rates for
basically the same service.
So why does it matter where you buy your domain names?
No two registrars are the same. They vary in price, services
offered, ease of use, management system, etc. This is why ...
Finding that Winning Combination...
A good domain name is valuable, but the combination of a domain
name and a good vanity 800 number can be priceless in marketing.
The right 800 number allows your advertising to reach several
times as many people that are not on the internet regularly. It
generates instant credibility and recognition and helps to
create that all important million dollar brand name. But with
the incredible scarcity of both .COMS and 800 numbers, how could
you ever come up that ...
What's The Big Fuss About Long Domain Names?
The word is out. You can now register domain names of up to 67
characters. This is going to shoot your ranking way up on the
search engines. Because if you stuff all your keywords into your
domain name, search engines are simply going to love your site.
Or so they say...
But is that really the truth?
No point speculating. Let's do a little test...
Go to your favorite search engine, say AltaVista. Key in your search term, say "website ...

You visited a great website some time ago that had some fantastic information on it. It is not easily found in search engines results so you decide to type the domain name into your favorite browser.

Domain Names and Longevity
