Can anyone tell me how and where to start? Thanks a lot.

 
 

How come some days I can get to my domain and other days it is blocked by my ISP? 

by on December 26, 2012

Q: Hi. My domain is not resolved and blocked by my ISP someday and day after it works fine. And then blocks one day and so on. It’s only my domain because using the server’s IP i can access it anytime but not the domain. I tried different ISP connections and no problem using them.

What is a valid reason for wanting a domain name? 

by on October 13, 2010

Q: Hi all
I am trying to register a .ie domain

I’m not part of a company of any kind. I am just a regular john doe trying to register a domain.

This domain will cost me about 30 so I don’t want to waste my money on a domain name like www.MyName.ie so I have decided that the domain I will register should be a name that might be worth something in the future.

I will use this domain for training myself on wed design, emails, hosting, PHP scripts and so on.

Now the IDER is looking for me to make a clam to the domain. They need a signed letter from me saying why I want this domain name.

The domain name I am trying to get is www.AttribComputers.ie

I need to have a valued reason for wanting this domain name but the only reason I have is that I like the name.

So my question is

What can I say that will class as a valid reason for wanting this name and allows me to have a clam over this domain or is there something I can do to give myself a clam over this domain name.

Finding domains that contain keywords 

by on June 16, 2009

Q: Is there an easy way to search for registered domain names that contain certain words? For instance, if I know the name includes ‘book’ and ‘shop’ but I have no idea where those words come in the name but I want the result IShopForBooks24-7.com.

A: There is a site called namedroppers.com that allows you to search for domains with keywords like you suggested. It also allows you to exclude keywords as well. So if you wanted to search for domains with ‘books’ and ‘shop’ but without ‘now’ then you can do that as well.
