How Video (and .VIDEO) Can Help Your Small Business Achieve Its Goals

video-domain-blog-post

Video and marketing go together like peanut butter and jelly. You could attempt to consume them separately, but the effect wouldn’t be nearly as satisfying, and what’s the point of doing something if you’re not going to do it right?

In May, YouTube celebrated its 10-year anniversary which got us all thinking about how far video has come in the past decade.

Neustar Celebrated the Launch of .nyc in Downtown Manhattan

Earlier this week, the brand new .nyc top-level domain (TLD) became available for immediate registration to all residents of New York City’s five boroughs. To celebrate the occasion, the registry for .nyc, Neustar (ownit.nyc), hosted a launch event right in the Flatiron District of Manhattan. 1&1 was excited to be there to take part – and even offer some free taxi rides to residents.

NYC-TLD

One week from today, on October 8th, the brand new .NYC top-level domain (TLD) enters the general availability phase. At that point, anyone with a physical address in one of New York City’s five boroughs can register a brand new Web address for their website.

As one of the first city-specific top-level domains (TLD) to be launched, .NYC is poised to become one of the most popular domain extensions available, so businesses are encouraged to grab their desired domain name as soon as possible.

An Overview of Subdomains

The subdomain of a website is a great method for directing visitors to specific areas of your website. In this article I will discuss what a subdomain is, and how you can implement one.

What is a subdomain?

Domain names are split into two distinct parts: on the right is the top-level domain, such as .com or .org. And to the left of this is the domain name you have chosen for your business, such as 1and1. Put them together – 1and1.com – and you have your domain name.
