Dominios para dominar el mundo | via infografias.com


La ICANN se ha vuelto loca y hacemos pocos meses abrió un proceso para permitir el registro de nuevos dominios de primer nivel en Internet, para que cualquiera pueda crear su propia extensión. Fueron 1.931 las solicitudes de nuevas extensiones, y no fueron más por el elevado precio (como 180.000 dólares mínimo) no reembolsable para acceder a solicitar.

Entre las extensiones de siempre podemos citar la .com, .net, .es, etc. pero con estos nuevos dominios tendremos cosas como .microsoft, .movistar, .cloud, .apps, .hosting, .domains, etc. Un mar de dominios sin límites, donde posiblemente surgirán nuevos registradores que harán buen negocio de su primer nivel.

Using Outlook.com with your own Web Domain | labnol.org


Technology Blog

How do you setup the new Outlook mail service on a custom web domain so that your email address reads like you@yourdomain.com instead of you@outlook.com?

If you are on Google Apps, you can leave your existing setup untouched and access your Gmail account from inside Outlook.com via POP3. This is a recommended option if you are just experimenting with Outlook and aren’t ready to make the complete switch to Outlook (see: Gmail vs Outlook).

The disadvantage with the above approach is that your incoming mails won’t be delivered to your Outlook mailbox instantly. They’ll first land in your Gmail inbox, Outlook will issue a fetch request after a minute or two and only then will your messages show up in Outlook.

Alternatively, you can remove Gmail from the loop and let Outlook.com handle all your incoming and outgoing email traffic. Here’s how you do that in five easy steps.

Understanding Domain Names: Why and When?

As a web professional, there are things we have to deal with outside the realms of development and design. Sometimes it’s a matter of business, sometimes it’s keeping our finances in order, and every now and again, the subject of branding, re-branding or protecting our brand hits our to-do list.
When you begin your journey into starting up your first freelance portfolio, this information will play a vital role in how you represent yourself, however, that’s not to say that this subject won’t recur later on.

Understanding Domain Names: Why and When?

When you begin your journey into starting up your first freelance portfolio, this information will play a vital role in how you represent yourself, however, that’s not to say that this subject won’t recur later on.

Online Brand Availability

If you ever want to launch that start-up idea you have, or if you want to build a new business, a basic knowledge of domain names is critically important. After all, it represents your office’s address.

Website Address
Figure 1: The website address is critically important, thought should go into its branding.

Within this article, we’re going to explore your options, once you’ve got yourself an idea for what (if anything) your new project should be called, and critically, what your project actually does. Because it’s not a sexy chore, and somewhat frustrating to find that perfect domain (with lots being sucked up and left unused), it’s one of the hardest challenges you’ll likely encounter.

With the advice below, you’ll at least have an idea of which domain types matter, and thereby, which you should focus on attaining (and if you can’t get it, when you should reconsider your brand due to unavailability).

Prioritize: The Trendy Three

Domain names in truth are a little biased to whether the audience can remember the extension. It might seem ideal to snag yourself a free .TK domain in preference to buying a more easily recognised extension, but that will work against you when your visitors begin trying to locate you for the first time. While increasing numbers of TLD’s are becoming available on the Web, the truth is that visitors will automatically assume your site uses one of three extensions: dot COM, NET or ORG.

Perhaps this feels a bit unfair due to the lack of good available names in the system, but if you can get one of the top three (or all three if the brand is named really creatively), you’ll put yourself in an ideal position.

Most widely recognised extensions
Figure 2: Dot COM, NET and ORG and the most widely recognised extensions. Get them if you can!

When you’re working with the top three domains, the great thing is that they’re often among the cheapest to register, and even more critically, all domain and hosting providers will likely support them (in terms of offering the ability to register and renew ownership). While I would say it’s not as essential to own one of the big three as it used to be (due to more people becoming web aware), there are still a huge number of people who don’t understand the web, and won’t likely realize that extensions exists outside of .com, .net and .org exist, so they do still hold sway over consumers.

How to Research Domain Names on the Web

Researching domain names on the web is often frustrating because all the good names that are in your mind have already been taken. There are however tools that you help you brainstorm new ideas for domain names and you may sometimes strike gold.

The IANA maintains a complete list of top-level domains (like .am for Armenia or .be for Belgium) that you may consider registering in case the usual .com and .org addresses for your domain are not available.

It’s obviously not easy for anyone to search through dozens of domain extensions manually so a tool like iWantMyName should help. With a single click, iWantMyName lets you check the availability of a domain name against most of the international domains* from one place.

Another excellent tool for researching domains is Domai.nr. Give it any word and Domai.nr will suggest some really creative domain names around that word.

For instance, if you are looking for a domain like “awesome”, Domai.nr will check the availability of generic domains (like awesome.com) as well as unconventional domains like aweso.me, aws.me, aw.sm, etc. which also make lot of sense in case the original one is not available.

You may also use characters from Arabic, Hindi and other non-Latin scripts when searching for domains on both Domai.nr and iWantMyName.

Getting Your Startup Website Ready, Pre-Launch

4. Blog

Never underestimate the importance of having a blog. A blog helps you establish domain expertise and it helps you with your SEO. But as I’ve argued before, a blog can really just help you think – and write- through the entrepreneurial process.
5. Create an “About Us” page

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the importance of the “About Us” page on your startup’s website, arguing that “For most people who interact with your website, this may be the opportunity to really humanize your company. You don’t want to waste it.”
6. Feature your product

Enough about you. Talk about your product. Even if the tool you’re building isn’t ready for launch, even if you aren’t ready to list all its features, bells, whistles, or pricing tiers, even if there aren’t screenshots or walkthroughs – yet – you can can still give people some idea of why they want to pay attention.


ComingSoon_sept10.jpgEven if you’re not quite ready to show the public your product, you can still create a good website and a solid online presence for your startup. I want to sidestep the argument about whether or not it’s good to be “stealth” or not, and work with the assumption that if you’ve purchased the domain name, you’re going to put up some sort of website.

So here are a few of the things you should consider when building your startup’s site:

1. Have a nice “look”

You don’t have to commit to the whole graphical “look and feel” of your brand on day one, but you do want to to make moves in that direction. Even if your site starts as an announcement for “more information coming soon,” you can still have a visually striking site. Leer más “Getting Your Startup Website Ready, Pre-Launch”
