Doteasy Pre-Boxing Day Sale and Doteasy Gift Domains

December 16th, 2008

author: Kathy

Tis the season of gift giving and nothing says “I have no clue what to get you” better than another pack of tube socks (unless, of course, they’ve specifically asked for socks). So, this Christmas, why not give them something that’s more special and cost less than a pack of socks. We have the perfect solution for you!

From now until December 31, 2008save 80% on all new 1-year .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info or .us domain names – only US$4.95/1st year! That’s less than the cost of a pack of socks! This offer applies to all new registrations and gift domains.

Doteasy Gift Domains – How it works? 4 Easy Steps:

1. Choose a domain name for them. Get them a domain name that they will enjoy and appreciate and do keep in mind all the possibilities. Be creative.

2. Pick gift card, set delivery date and include a personal message. We have 12 different gift card designs to choose from and then personalize it with your own message. You can also set the delivery date to ASAP (which will be delivered as soon as the account is activated) or any date within a 2-month period.

3. Choose a hosting plan. Are they newbies? Or would they need advanced hosting features and support?

If your gift recipients are new to websites and web hosting, then the $0 Hosting plan would be sufficient as it comes with free Website Creator, blog, photo gallery, forum, online forms, guestbook and more.

However, if your gift recipient has website experience and you know they would appreciate scripting and database capabilities and other advanced features, then consider the Unlimited Hosting plan. With this plan, they can setup their own social networking or ecommerce shopping site.

4. Let us take care of the gift delivery. We will have your gift card posted on the gift domain on the specified delivery date. An email notification with a direct link to the gift domain will also be sent to the gift recipient. We will provide your gift recipient with all the instructions they need to get started on the gift you got them.

So, as long as your gift recipient has access to a computer and the Internet, they will be able to go to their gift web address and see what a thoughtful gift awaits them.  They don’t need to know you got it on sale.

Happy Shopping!

ICANN Approved, So U Can Enjoy New Names

June 30th, 2008

author: Jennifer

In a move that got everyone in the industry buzzing, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) had finalized its decision to relax rules on permitting the introduction of new Internet domain names. What is even more earth shattering is that, for the first time ever, they are allowing registration for addresses that are entirely in a non-English language! This comes at the heel of increasing demand for new domain names as prime online real estate is hard to come by these days. Moreover, with Internet usage expanding into all parts of the world that don’t speak English, this is indeed a very logical development.

We are obviously ecstatic to receive this piece of news as we understand the frustration of discovering your perfect domain name has been taken by another website. Soon, we can provide you with more choices and freedom! In the near future (possibly next year), we will start to see top-level domain names like .nyc or .bank or .fashion popping up around the Internet. These new endings can make your website much more memorable to your visitors and become a great catchy promotional tool. It also creates a whole new creative outlet for you to express yourself

With ICANN’s new guidelines, it would make it easier for companies and groups to propose new domain suffixes, instead of following the previous process, where bids can take years to be approved.  Having said that, it is not without limitations. Anyone can object an approval on the grounds of racial discrimination, trademark conflicts, or other terms with an offensive connotation. Moreover, to recover the $20 million expense it incurred for this undertaking, ICANN would need to charge approximately US $100,000 for each name. Definitely not pocket change for the majority of us.

Even though the benefits associated with this new process are very appealing, there are still a lot of wrinkles to be ironed out in this new change to the online landscape.  This includes how politically taboo terms will be judged and the issue of censorship. And on a more humourous note, ICANN may also run into the problem of “word warp”. This is when a word is spelled exactly the same in one language, but has a completely different meaning in each language. For example, .pet would make a great  address for a pet store ecommerce site in English. However, translated into French and you got yourself a domain name meaning “fart”. So, if you do decide to submit a new domain name in the future, please make sure you have done your research on the word and its possible meaning.

Like we have mentioned above (aside from the possible embarrassing moments), while this is a great opportunity for those of you who are in need of a innovative domain name, there’s still some way to go before this procedure will be smoothly running. But in the meantime, you can still register a new domain address with Doteasy for the affordable price of $25.00/yr!
