PostSubject: Paid for domain?   Sat Apr 25, 2009 5:43 am

Now that I have a job, I can easily afford to host our own servers on a .com website.

1) What should the url be? rel-clan.com, royalempiresleague.com ect..
2) Will you like this to happen?

Need input please!

This is an interesting thing to think about. What will it do for this clan? What will it accomplish? Is it worth it?

These are things to think about. Lets not waste our time coming up with a URL. Instead lets figure out if the benefits outweigh the cost and then lets come up with a clever URL.

not like therapist.com haha Very Happy:D:D:D (the-rapist.com for those of you who aren't as quick witted)

I will think about it. I suggest you do this as well todd. Sometimes in the excitement of all that is possible we lose track of what really is worth it.

I think it would be good but as Charles said is it worth it? If it is well why not I guess. Sounds like a good idea.

Worth it, but in its way; not worth it.

All of the current active users have the current address bookmarked, so why change it?
(canadian is the exception)

Of course it's worth it! Do you realize that the only way to compete with other websites is to be professional? And the first thing to be professional is to have your own name.

I think it should be www.royalempiresleague.net

I find dashes in addresses very annoying, so rel-clan.net wouldn't really work. At least not from my perspective.

I think this is the first step to making a big difference in our growth.

Your very enthusiastic Keevan. And I agree with you. No spaced and yes it will make us look more proffesional. I agree with Keevan.

i thought we were going for a .com kind of thing? not a .net?

and yes, therapist.com was somewhat comical, but i prefer to send people to penisland.com

and to be honest, what exactly will a .com do for us?... other than changing the end caption of the websight, or having to delelte a bookmark, what will it do?

and keevan, i like that you say "we need professionalism", but whats not professional about a .net? the only companies that really use a .com are those who plan on making money, i.e.: advertisement companies, telecommunications companies, or others that provide a service.

what service would we provide? other than a FREE forum for our clan members, not a damn thing. why spend money on something that really isnt worth it?

i my opinion, a .com would be nice to look at, but not worth paying for.

todd, you will be the only one paying for it, unless you decide to make the new sight a pay sight, in which i see many clan dropouts.

but however, if you do decide to make a .com, then lets go all out with: royalempireleagueunited.com

I would probably add a "PayPal Donate" button that links to my PayPal account. That's the only thing. You wouldn't have to add a cent to it if you don't want.

Keep the debating going guys! It's great.

How about relu.com?


I think it'll be worth it as it may attract more members to join the forums ... ... ?

Well, it only costs $19.95 per year. That's if we keep the current site and just go with the domain. If we were to use the sitebuilder tool, then we would have to pay $9.95 each month.

I know. Hehe...So, that's why I thought we should do it.

With that you do get a free sitebuilder, but it only allows 6 pages, which we require more. If you go for the advanced one, it's $5.00 per month, and it ends up been $9.95 per month for the hosting together.

Do we need to have the hosting that comes with it?

That's the question I want you guys to answer.

If I were to get the .com or what ever from their site, I still get the FREE sitebuilder, but as I said, it only comes with 6 pages. So we could either use that somehow or just stick with the current site, but have a new URL address.

If you go on rel.com it will say it is under construction. I'm pretty sure it's taken.
Todd, what hosting company are you using to purchase a domain name?
And is relu.org available?

I'm using Digital Pacific. I HAVE to use an Aussie provider because I don't have a Credit Card (nor do my parents) and I Can't use my PayPal as I can't SEND money.

To look for what's available, check here; http://www.digitalpacific.com.au/domain-names/register-domain-name/

we should not use relu.org

Remember REL is refering to the clan as a whole and RELU is referring to the AOE clan.
