does anyone use godaddy anymore?




I do, and have been very happy with them. They really need to de-confuse-ify their homepage, though. Terrible layout design.

As a webmaster, I despise archive.org.

It has outdated versions of my pages with old information, pages that were updated with new pics or spelling corrections, or info corrections. It has pages that I have removed for various reasons. In short, they make avilable to the public a lot of stuff that I have chosen to change or remove from my own web site. Who has time to sift through their entire site just to ask them to clean out my own web pages, one by one?

You can place a robots.txt file in your code that instructs them not to archive your old pages. See more info here:

the only problem with that is once you tell 'em not to crawl, it removes ALL the pages from your website for now and forever. They will not selectively remove page(s).

I found this out the hard way - a couple of years ago they crawled a page on the modcom site that had been erroneously linked that included all sorts of private names and phone numbers . well, i had to get it off there asap - but they had to remove modcom from all future crawls, too... that's no good when you're trying to get as many links and hits as possible to build your webby kingdom.

People that 'collect' multiple domain names drive me crazy!



Being a non-geek, I don't understand why anyone would want to do this. Are they hoping for some sort of big payout from a corporation who wants the name? Or is it someting that people collect like stamps?

Consider it Electronic Real Estate. It can be an investment; IE the right buyer for the right name, or an income generator by advertisers via Pay-Per-Click.

Trademark issues rule out the company name/product name type thing, but imagine if you had the foresight to register CARS.com or AA.com or BUY.com? SEARCHING.com just sold last month for $27,000.00, ME.com for $460,000 and the high sale of the year is CREDITCARDS.com for $2.75 Million!

Not bad Real Estate transcations I'd say...

This just in:
The largest domain transaction of all time was announced Nov. 23, 2004. Seattle based Marchex, Inc. said they have reached an agreement to buy a portfolio containing tens of thousands of domains from Name Development Inc. in a deal worth just over $164 million. Name Development appears to be a corporate entity holding domains owned by Yun Ye's Ultimate Search, a pioneering company in the pay per click (PPC) field. Marchex said the deal is expected to be finalized in the first quarter of 2005...
