Domain Name Q&A – January 10th 2014

This column is called Domain Name Q&A. I am using the search terms that visitors of my blog are using at Google and other search engines to find my website. Some of the search terms are in the form of questions and some are not. I take these search terms, treat them all as questions and attempt to answer 5 of them every day. Answers are kept sort most of the time. Anyone can ask a domain related question using the “contact us” form.

I also get a lot of inquiries for my domain names. Most of my domains are parked at the DomainNameSales platform that anyone interested can leave a comment there. People may leave a strange or funny comment and that is featured in “Inquiry of the day”.
