We're very excited to make these domains available for lease to the public for the very first time.
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 16, 2008
Pushing.net, one of the Internet's largest sites for leasing or purchasing websites and domain names, announces the release of a new portfolio of domain names that include the term 'Chicago.'
The most up-to-date portfolio list, which can be viewed by searching for the term Chicago, contains more than 275 of these specific domain names that either begin with or contain the term 'Chicago.'
"Pushing's 'Chicago' portfolio is fairly expansive and all of these domains will be of great interest to many groups," said Pushing.net's founder, David Wieland. "We're very excited to make these domains available for lease to the public for the very first time."
Wieland continues, "Domain leasing is a relatively new phenomenon, but makes an enormous amount of sense for most small to medium business owners and entrepreneurs. Most of these domains will sell in the several thousand dollar range, and for most businesses, that investment level is too large. Like real estate, domains can be leased through Pushing.net for a much lower monthly rate, putting less stress on cash-flow, yet still reaping all the benefits of the domain." Such benefits, Wieland says, are important to a company's success.
"The use of domain names in both Internet-based and traditional brick and mortar businesses has exploded over the last few years. Having control over the best domain name for your particular business drastically improves your customers' perception of your company's legitimacy and new-age mentality. However, perhaps the most compelling reason to control your industry-specific domain name is to eliminate the risk that your competitors can do the same.
"For example, the domain Chicago Pool Supplies .com is the best possible domain name for any one of the several businesses selling pool supplies in Chicago. Owning or leasing this domain and either building a new website to promote your business, or directing the domain to your current website, gives one lucky company a major advantage over all its competitors. One can easily imagine the effectiveness of a simple advertisement that just shows the domain name 'ChicagoPoolSupplies.com' and doesn't need to explain what the ad is trying to promote, because it's self-evident in the domain."
Wieland notes the following domains as other domains that should generate high interest: Chicago Hotel and Travel .com, Chicago East Village .com, Chicago Computers .net, Chicago Mobile Phone .com, Chicago Financing .net, Chicago Investment .net, Chicago Networking .net, Chicago Offices .net, VC Chicago .com, Auctioneers Chicago .com, Billiards Chicago .com, MBA Chicago .com, Networks Chicago .com, Yachts Chicago .com, Golfing Chicago .net, Local Chicago .net, Chicago IL Lawyers .com, Chicago Loop Restaurants .com, Chicago Chauffeur .net, Chicago Tech Solutions .com, and Seafood Chicago .com (no spaces in the actual domains).
The 'Chicago' portfolio is one of hundreds, comprising several thousand premium domain names on the site.
Pushing.net's unique domain name leasing concept is new in the domain name space and comes at an interesting time in the domain name investment industry, as the importance of a good domain name rises and traditional domain name ownership revenue sources decline.
