Anybody know anything about web sites and URLs?

Post by Kevin on Tue Oct 15, 2013 9:39 am

The URL for this forum is clumsy.  Anybody know, could we just go to GoDaddy or one of the other companies and get a better URL and redirect it to here, or would we have to pay for a whole website?

Yup, I know all about it. What name (URL) do you want? I can see if it's available and then it can be registered. I think it costs like $15 a year to register a name. Then, we can simply tell it to redirect to this site.

Uh, I dunno.  I hadn't thought about that yet.  What do we want?  What's catchy and short and memorable?

utah4runners
utahyotas
utahdesertrunners
desertrunnerst4r

I'm not a huge fan of any of those. Sad

I vote for this one. Way easier and I could make simple vinyl decals for it if you guys would want to.

My wife has a home scrapbook cutter machine thingy that I can draft up whatever design and have it cut vinyl for me. I've almost volunteered to do the stickers before but I figured there was a supply of them already made.....

I have a small supply but in the future I know who to contact. I would have no problem delegating the sticker duties to Brad! As far as URL I'm fine with utaht4r.com but I would like to keep the club name "Desert Runners". In the original discussion Utah T4R was brought up and shot down! Its just not cool like Big Horn, Wasatch Cruisers, Dirt Hedz, Utah T4R would just be to boring!

I vote no "s" just www.utahT4R.com. Nice and simple.

Kevin maybe if you're a good boy and Ty hasn't got you taken care of yet I'll make your requested windshield banner for you.

As long as I can find the vinyl (which isn't too hard) I can do pretty much any color and size you want up to 12" tall. My cost is simply vinyl, backing material, and blades which shouldn't be too pricey unless we go crazy on sizes or something.

But then you won't be Sticker Pimp anymore, we'd have to find you a new title.

Yeah, there's probably not much chance of that.

I like www.utaht4r.com too, good call Andrew.

Too hard to remember, in my opinion.  Looks like letter salad.

Just thought I would throw it out there. Thought maybe we could keep the Desert Runners in there somehow.

Remember, the URL is just navigation. Once they get to our page we can plaster "Desert Runners" all over it. I'll throw together some prototypes.

No, I have not. I've kind of forgotten what we actually want. A website that has some basic information on it about who we are and then a link to this forum?
