Computers Over Clocked has registered some domains similar to its domain name to assure the users do not get confused if they either mistype or go to another domain, ex. .net .org, etc.

Domain names cost money though and we have implemented a new idea to raise money to keep the domains up. It will be used for the registration and maintainence of the domain.

Users who donate to adopt the domain will get a special rank name on their user account. It will say Supporter. Your name will also go on a special page if you would like.

Please PM me by clicking on my user name (or PM) for payment information.

Domains and their cost:
$25/year - http://www.computersOC.com
$15/year - http://www.computerOC.com

at godaddy.com you can get the domains cheaper, about 8 a year for a .com, and i think i might be wrong though a .biz for 6 something.

It's ok, I know how ya feel. Smile

I've got some domains through GoDaddy before, they're pretty easy to use.

Looks like it might be helping. Lots of "guests" are online constantly.

What do you get with the adoption of a domain? Advertising rights?

Posting tag and link somewhere if you want. Probably on the links page, but I might create a "Supporter" page.

Id definitely be interested for like a front page advertising ad; nothing big but it would definitely get a lot of people signing up for it.

Not sure what you mean, like a little button ad (like if you log out and look below "Top 25 reasons to register!")?

I was thinking more like a banner advertisement for a year something not that big but that might stand out or even a well lit text link on the top like the 'Top 25 Reasons To Register"

EDIT - I just wanted to let you know that this is my opinion and I dont mean to offend the setup and way you have your site now. Just trying to make some suggestions.

Yeah, that's fine. I could do something like that.

When I get a day off, or some time, I plan on re-organizing everything on the top. For example, I want to get rid of the images next to the text links (like FAQ, Search, Upgrade, etc). I'll change it up a bit up there.

That'd be cool... I've still been looking for a new logo. I had the Newegg contest going but got no final logos to use for it.
