Geo Domains


There is quite a bit of buzz surrounding domains for geographic locations as of late. They are pretty awesome. You can truly own a unique piece of virtual real estate by choosing the right domain. The days of owning domains like Argentina.com, Canada.com, etc are gone but there are still a lot of city/state, state/country, city/country, neighborhoods, and other locations on the Earth that are available in the form of a domain name. Lets head on over the new Name.com Geo Domains search tool shall we? I have a certain affection for Brazil, the city of Macei’f3 in the state of Alagoas to be more precise, so we will start our search there.

Before we do, please allow me to get on my soap box. If you happen to own, find, or acquire an awesome geo domain, domains like brazil.com and brasil...

Domain Suggestions


Hello there. We apologize that this blog has been dead for quite some time but we are going to try and get back into the swing of things. My name is Owen Borseth, I am a software engineer at name.com, and I will be guest blogging this evening about our new domain suggestions tool. I think it’s pretty awesome. I even bought a domain or two using it, and I never buy domains.

Now lets say you’re a sweater knitter and you are chomping at the bit to sell your sweet sweaters online. Now lets say you’re an honest sweater knitter and you realize that your sweaters are not so sweet at all. As a matter of fact, they are downright ugly. So you wander on over to the best domain registrar out there and decide to find a domain name to hawk your wares...

Is Tuvalu Sinking Or Is Godaddy Just Slinging Mud?


Godaddy recently made waves by taking their anti-.tv rhetoric to a new level by including a hover blurb stating “the island nation of Tuvalu is sinking” and recommending other extensions.

Is .TV going away? It’s possible, but unlikely.

I’m not worried about .TV going away. Tuvalu may very well be threatened by global warming, but smarter people than I will need to determine that for sure. According the the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition that “fact” is under debate:

A tide gauge to measure sea level has been in existence at Tuvalu since 1977, run by the University of Hawaii It showed a negligible increase of only 0.07 mm per year over two decades It fell three millimeters between 1995 and 1999. The complete record can still be seen on John Daly’s website: http://www.john-daly.com.
