Your perfect domain name... for free?




Imagine you are preparing a show about widgets. So as the marketing director of spiffingevents.com and being thoroughly internet aware, you rush off to register …

“thewidgetshow.com”

…but then you find someone beat you to it in July 2005.

However, you can be guaranteed all these fine sub-domain addresses that not only describe the event, but also retain your “uber-brand” in the process:-

  • widgetshow.spiffingevents.com
  • thewidgetshow.spiffingevents.com
  • widgets2007.spiffingevents.com

And they can all point web traffic to the same site if you want. Moreover, should you ever sell the widget show to globalextravaganzas.com for a fat wedge, then you can also sell the address with it – without it affecting the rest of the spiffingevents.com empire. Although, it should really be phased over to…

  • widgetshow.globalextravaganzas.com
  • widgets2007.globalextravaganzas.com
  • thewidgetshow.globalextravaganzas.com

And during the phase-over transition, ALL of these addresses can be set up to direct web traffic to the same site.

  • widgetshow.spiffingevents.com
  • thewidgetshow.spiffingevents.com
  • widgets2007.spiffingevents.com
  • widgetshow.globalextravaganzas.com
  • widgets2007.globalextravaganzas.com
  • thewidgetshow.globalextravaganzas.com

If you don’t believe me, try this address which should prove that just about anything is possible where domain names are concerned…

The bottom line here is that domain names and addresses are extremely versatile and highly configurable in the hands of a specialist DNS service provider – which is almost certainly not possible with the sort of "one size fits all" service that dominates the mass production hosting market.
