EU Domain name registration update

There has been some confusion leading to apathy in relation to the registration of .eu domain names. In our own investigations the process is a protracted one which has probably been the main cause of this apathy. Saying this, those wishing to register .eu domains can now register their interest via various accredited registrars and although we are an accredited Nominet registrar we are unable to register .eu domains. We have been recommended to a company known as EUREU www.eureu.com and suggest you follow the link below for further information on how to register a .eu domain. Please note that we do not have any affiliation with EUREU but have found on our initial dealings they have proved to be the most helpful and informative.

  • Fast Fact - Blogs are finally becoming big business!

The Blog (Web log) may have been a fixture on the fringes of online culture for several years already, but the recent purchase of blogging company MySpace by News Corp for $580 million shows that blogs are finally becoming big business in the US and worldwide.

According to the latest data from Hitwise, visits to blogs currently account for almost 1 in 200 visits to all websites in the UK, which represents an astonishing 130% increase year-on-year from 2004.

Though the blogging ranks are dominated by MSN and LiveJournal, relative newcomer MySpace is rapidly stealing the show with a 500% increase in traffic since its debut in the Hitwise ranks in September last year. Currently the fourth biggest blogging site in the UK, MySpace has shown particular appeal to the coveted 18 - 24 age group. Hitwise Demographics reveals that more than 31% of visitors to MySpace are from this age demographic, which is 18% higher than the average for Blog sites.
