    Shorter Domain

    Well as you know, the current domain for New Horizons is...newhorizons.englishboard.net. I don't know :S: it seems a little too big for me so I was planning to change it, here is a couple of small ones that you might like:

    newhorizons.cinebb.com
    newhoriozns.grafbb.com


    So do you want me to change it, or do you still want newhorizons.englishboard.net?

    Have you tried .info Ahmed?

    And unless you put the money into buying a top level domain, don't bother with changing it. It'll be a hassle to both new members and old members alike.

    No...info sounds schoolish Razz

    And there is no point in buying a domain since all the newhorizons (.com/.org/net/biz) are already taken Sad

    Actually its not a hassle at all because even if you type with the "englishboard" it'll redirect you to the new one Smile

    .biz sounds schoolish. It's worse than .info by far.

    And you will find that you will lose members with the switch. Trust me, I've done stuff like that before.

    And perhaps it's time to slightly change the New Horizons name? 'The New Horizon' perhaps?

    What is .biz? I have always thought it stands for "Business" Razz

    Anyways, how well changing the englishboard part make the forum lose members?

    Besides it would make more sense if I would lose members if I change the newhorizons part...

    It does, but NH isn't a business. .biz is only used by poor scammers now.
