So, how come this SIG's site is in a .com domain instead of .org or Does it purport to be a commercial entity? (That's a pet peeve of mine... see my Domain Hall of Shame page.) DanTheWebmaster 11:25, 23 Jun 2007 (PDT)

Because the Sec Secretary at the time, Pete Baimbridge, set it up that way. It's a common practice in the UK; .org and are costlier and I think requires the registrant to jump through hoops to prove their organisational status. Nothing to get worked up about - it's no worse than all those American .coms who really ought to be! :-) Andyfarrell 03:58, 29 Jun 2007 (PDT)
Your information doesn't seem to be current; I checked at GoDaddy, and over there .org domains were $8.99, while .com domains were $8.95... a four cent difference. domains were $9.99, an extra dollar, but it didn't seem like there were any special hoops to jump through to get one. .info domains were cheapest, on sale for 99 cents. .us domains were $5.99. is reserved for the state of Colorado (two letter codes within .us are state codes). Since direct registrations at the second level in .us were made available a few years ago, the subdivided subdomains there aren't much used. DanTheWebmaster 19:32, 29 Jun 2007 (PDT)
