scottishlass.scot AT LAST!

YES, YES, YES!

YES I’M SHOUTING!

Celebrating independence on teh interwebz. Been admiring my lovely new domain name, (spot the aliteration too) so of course I need to shift the blog one more time to it’s rightful resting place.

Scottish Lass Seeks (domain since 2001) has found a permanent home.

Ya beauty!

I was so desperate to make sure I got the name that I shelled out the bawbees in the ‘landrush’ phase of the dotscot introduction. Couldn’t bear the thought of yet more people overseas called “Scottish Lass” snapping it up. It’s flattering so many people in other countries are wannabes but I am actually a woman in Scotland born, bred, live and work here.

I also wanted to try and make sure that Scottish businesses taking the initiative felt the benefit of supporting the new .scot domain so went with the first Scottish registrar offering .scot I could find – Calico. They’re based in Cromarty. Quaintly but in a good way, when you sign up you receive your account details in a manually drafted email from a female sysadmin, even better!

scottishlass.uk um Yu .uk

Because I’m a web geek and am compelled to try these things, noticed that domain registrars were sending me emails to claim .uk versions of my existing domains. Apparently owners of .co.uk versions of a domain have Chief Baggsying Rights to secure the new .uk extension. So yep have made the move. Shorter = good…but still with that annoying, you know, .uk bit.  Wish http://dotscot.net/ would get their skates on for domains with a relationship with Scotland. Oh joy, more registration fees.

So for the purposes of this experiment www.scottishlass.co.uk is now www.scottishlass.uk
