NAMES

You choose your name, something that's appropriate, and something that sounds good, and you hope it's unique. If you're Yngwie Malmsteen you might be right in the uniqueness, but all too often someone else has called themselves the same as you, and chances are someone else has set up a website and got one or more of the URLs you wanted, first. www has a funny rule about this, which allows cybersquatters to hold you to ransom for your name. But it needn't be like that. I have a proposal which will allow a much better way of handling this type of problem. See: The Kenco Problem

If you would like your name adding to the list, you should mention in the subject line that it's about the NAMES when you write in. (There are many other things at this site (feel free to explore!) and it gets confusing if a message arrives without a context!

REGISTER YOUR NAME HERE - This anti-displacementist system allows you to register your name even if someone else also has that name.

News (2003/08) : The Alternative Name Registration System takes a step nearer to International recognition by having its own domain suffix. It would be nice to have a new independent country-code, but in the meantime we have www.the.real.name
