We cannot in good conscience continue to participate in this over inflation of the premium domain name market that denies talented groups, companies and individuals the same opportunities afforded to larger corporations.
Litchfield Park, AZ (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
Domain-Cheap.com, best known for it's 1 on 1 free website creation consultation service, today announced that it will be opening its private reserves of more than 2,200 old premium generic keyword rich domain names to the public. Each premium domain will be offered free with matched managed web hosting service. Each of the free premium domains are released on a first come first serve basis.
The Arizona based Domain-Cheap.com is best known for its free 1 on 1 do-it-yourself free website creation consultation services that teaches anyone how to create a website. According to startup business support manager Geoffrey Stonham the decision to open the private reserves of premium domains as free domains comes in response to the over inflation of premium domain names in the market.
"The frenzied excitement of domain name investments over the years has driven the average generic keyword premium domain name like OnlineDrug.com and RentMovie.com way out of the budget of the average individual startup or group, making it almost impossible for small to medium sized business to get an edge," Geoffrey Stonham, startup business support manager of Domain-Cheap.com, said in a statement. "We cannot in good conscience continue to participate in this over inflation of the premium domain name market that denies talented groups, companies and individuals the same opportunities afforded to larger corporations. Most premium domain names in our opinion remain an exploited unused internet resource. We hope that through offering premium free domains, the actions of our company will set an industry example, altering the perception and direction of premium domain name markets."
Most of Domain-Cheap.com's now free premium domain names contain generic keyword topics centered around core markets, community and branding. The company keeps strong ties to the web community listening carefully for changing trends and is continuously leveraging its business and community partnerships to acquire and expand its inventory of premium domain names.
Geoffrey Stonham, goes on to say "We now hold ourselves to a higher standard, placing greater emphasis on customer success and the overall success of the open source web community. With this understanding we will be balancing the needs of the individual to those of the web community. If we feel the web community overall, is best served by offering the free premium domain names to a free open source group over an individual, then these are the tough decisions that will have to be made and will not be taken lightly. We will review each free premium domain application request and balance these requests based on the needs of the individual compared to that of the community. If we can help expand the free open source web development community further, then we will still have met our goals and obligations to the individual."
Domain-Cheap.com would like to go on record appealing to individuals and groups to join their free community cause, to reach out and suggest other groups and individuals that could help better organize and expand the free web development community. "There will always be money to be made in supporting the individuals specific custom web design needs. It is the loss of the sense of open source free community and continued reinvention of the wheel that is driving prices up. Wordpress is a prime example of a free web community effort and has been offering free Wordpress themes and software for years. Unfortunately the spirit of free open source is starting to lose its way in recent years with all the best designs costing money.
To help reinforce the original free open source goals of the Wordpress community Domain-Cheap.com will give special priority to groups and individuals seeking it's free premium domain names that are offering free premium Wordpress themes and that only seek payment for installation, customization and support services. There is much to be gained from free open source partnerships. Domain-Cheap.com has been aware of this and kept a close watch on the progress and development of the free Wordpress market and has acquired 95% of the generic high traffic keyword domains centered around this free Wordpress theme community, premium domain names like ChildTheme.com, FrameWorkTheme.com, ResponsiveTheme.com, ThemeSupport.com, ThemeTutorial.com, ThemeDeveloper.com, MagazineTheme.com and hundreds more. We will make these free premium domain names available to those individuals and groups that seek to raise the bar of quality and design for free wordpress themes and plug-ins."
