>for less than the cost of a cup of coffee I only 51 cents a day to
>reserve your address with all 3 domains."
> - They are pushing the idea of registering lots of domain names for the

>need to cover variations of your company name, product lines or brands ...
>and have them all take visitors to the one Web site of your choice."
> - Perhaps there are links to such generic information as the RFCs and
>templates - but I couldn't find them either by poking around or using

>the templates are.
