Domain Gripping and Email Forwarding allow anyone to use their domain name without an Internet service provider
Vancouver, BC, April 18, 2001 - Webnames.ca Inc., a leading domain name registrar today released two domain name solutions for small businesses and family use. Domain Gripping and Email Forwarding easily allow anyone to use a registered domain names for email and the web.
Many people already have email either through their work or as part of an Internet connectivity package and increasingly people are building their own websites. Email Forwarding allows anyone to create personalized email accounts for a domain name that can be forwarded to an active email address. For example, by registering a family name as a domain name an email address called firstname.lastname@example.org can be created and channeled to an active email account. If the active email address changes the channel account can be forwarded to the new account.
Domain Gripping pulls a hosted website into a domain name. For example, www.ispname.com/myspace/myname.htm becomes www.familyname.ca. Home businesses can reflect a more professional image by using Email Forwarding accounts and Domain Gripping instead of using an ISP domain for their email or website.
"Our Orchestra was looking for a cost effective way of getting an Internet presence" said Paul Smith, a Director of the Etobicoke Philharmonic Orchestra. "We registered our domain with Webnames.ca and then set up a free website with Bigstep.com. By using Domain Gripping we were able to pull our hosted domain into www.eporchestra.ca. We then set up Email Forwarding accounts to direct Orchestra correspondence. With Email Forwarding and Domain Gripping we created an entire Internet solution for less than $200."
"Email Forwarding allows anyone to use their domain name like a vanity plate for the Internet" said Stephen Smith, President of Webnames.ca. "When used together, Domain Gripping and Email Forwarding provide a very powerful set of tools for a home or small business."
