5 Reasons to Protect Your .COM with a .NET


So you’re starting a business and have high hopes for turning your ambitions into reality? It’s exciting to venture into the world of entrepreneurism and announce your presence to an online business world. Perhaps you spent hours coming up with the perfect domain name that illustrates what your business stands for while keeping the name succinct and easy to remember. Everything seems to be in order, but did you consider buying not just the “.com” domain name but the “.net” to go along with it? If you haven’t done so, consider these five reasons why doing so is probably a good idea:


.NYC – The Top Level Domain for New York Businesses

.NYC Domain Names

A lot of the press around ICANN’s decision to take applications for new top level domains has centered around the effects on brands. But there is also so-far untapped potential for new geo-TLDs that reflect a real world location for an online website. One of these new region-specific TLDs set to hit the market is .nyc, the new domain for New York City. Neustar Inc. has made the application on behalf of the city and expects the domain to be a big success.

The advantages of a .nyc TLD should be obvious. As one of the focal points of global industry, trade and culture, New York is loaded with meaning and possibility. Organizations and businesses located in the city can proudly display their allegiance to the City That Never Sleeps, from ad agencies to charities to your local deli. New Yorkers will be able to see immediately that you are a local business that they can be proud to be associated with.


Introducing the New Midphase Website Builder

Two worlds just collided in the website world; professional design meets do-it-yourself.

Up until now it was easy to compare websites that were built with a website builder and those touched by a professional designer. Website builder websites were boxy, compartmentalized, lacked features, and definitely weren’t anything to look at.

Today we’re pleased to announce you can now easily build your own website that looks like a seasoned web design professional did it for thousands of dollars; hello Midphase Website Builder.

Why cPanel has Become Synonymous with Shared Hosting Plans

For over two decades, shared hosting infrastructure has established itself as the most affordable entry-level platform for small businesses in the United States (and globally), allowing designers, developers and site owners the ability to launch new websites (and apps) quickly using user-friendly interfaces.

The cornerstone of its success and popularity is a piece of data center software called cPanel. cPanel is used by hosting providers to drive down support costs and offer customers a highly-accessible online dashboard from which to launch additional services and software, including the most popular feature, self-hosted WordPress blogs.

Since the hosting industry is highly competitive, customers have zero tolerance for complicated user interfaces or technology that does not embrace the simplicity and elegance of today’s Internet software.
