exploroz.com.au and works fine however one of these people that want to extort money from us registered the exploreoz.com.au name hours after we setup the others with the view to making us pay significantly to get the name back so we did not bother.

oh those darn villians wanting to make too much money again .. I8]

but you prolly know that with a written application to the ACA and ABC you have a excellant chance of owning it based opon factors those organisations set out in thier charters of service...

Ansearch seem to be only pulling thier stuff from google anyway and if you want some "possible" gossip on em' mail me...

gee, and then you could also get even more litageous and hire a lawer to go after the hijacker for loss of business, especially if you can provide any sort of documentation to support the url hijack was done purposly, in an oportunistic view...

yes i would look into it - I know that you cant just register any name in Australia that you want - you actually have to be a registered business and the website address has to be similar or the same as your business name . IE you can not register Holden if your business name is not Holden aus - holden pty so forth or vice versa - you can not register HOLDNCARS.com.au(example) if your not Holden Australia

I ran a business and tried to register a few websites names with some keywords used in the industry and i could not as i was told the above , also applied as i wanted to make a waterski reference page for fun and once again told i would have to register a business with the same name

at one time the generics and brands were very strict but the rules keep changing and they auctioned off the generics a few years ago....

Guys,
Not only did they at the time register the with e .com.au but they registered a business in NSW to secure it. So we did not bother at the time. I may try again but just not a priority for me at the moment.

You can put the e in our out and you will come to the same place.
In fact you can also go to 4wdaustralia.com.au and arrive at exploroz.com. You can also go with the .au in the non 'e' name see my explaination above for the reason the .com.au does not work without the 'e'.

All these work:
www.ExplorOz.com
www.ExplorOz.com.au
www.ExploreOz.com
www.4WDAustralia.com.au

And if you google explore oz or exploreoz or any other direvative of the spelling you will also arrive at the same place. Not much more we can do!

As for the missing 'e' it is was never in the original name of the business as we wanted it to be a bit different however we registered the other names anyway to cover all bases.

Im really not sure why he couldn't find it, it does extremely well in google even....but he is a relativly new internet/computer user...

at any rate he is going to spend a top-end five-figure sum and by my reckoning it will probably be from information gained here. There are other sites however imo, this one is the best starting point...especially the forum

because it's hard reccommending the site in just its verbal form and im sure with David and Michelle's background they will understand... but don' worry Hairy, this is prickly highend internet stuff that will loose most....

You have been putting your foot in it, eh?

Yeah, your friend must be very new to computers and the internet(where has he been for the last 20 years?) as typing Exploreoz into Google brings this site up straight away top of page

The gossip i refered to is actually fact so I am going to air it...

Ansearch, who have the delegtaion of the said url also have anzwers...

or maybe Anzwers owns Ansearch - its hard to tell from the front end...

either being the case, the original owner of anzwers was stripped by the accc of 166000 customers, clients and accounts because of the disgusting manner in which he operated... unconscienable behavour was one of the charges he faced.... i think westnet picked up most of his stuff, but ive met them too and inho, they wernt nice people either

if my suspicions are correct and if Anzwers is still owned by that same person and if he has any interest, whtasoever, in Ansearch, then the ACCC would love to hear from you as a prelim to litageous... if you do contact Barrister Peter Trout QC, he was defending internet interests as far back as the mid 90's

i should link this thread to whirlpool, search there for dataline... imho, the person is a monster and harmed many an employee and client alike...

sorry for the adour but the site does do very well in google...

heya Bonz - you need to add "creating really long www's" to the "thousand and one things people do on an internet forum or ng"...

btw, in my browser. that line of text has broken thru the layers style-sheet and busted open a horizontal scroll-bar ... ie's a pain but OE's the pleasure

The biggest blunder I heard was the name Bodalla Cheese, it would seem nobody in the company ever thought to register it, well, it happened, someone else registered it and made a mint selling it back to Bodalla cheese.

i heard of some too...

realestate.com.au
first change of hands for $1200
a month later
second change of hands 1.2mil...

and i pulled about 5k daytrading looksmart on the cusp of mircosoft not renewing it contracts... and yes, i had mnr shares but i sold them the day before it went to the skys (cant win'em all)

the first few internet waves where a huge blast, if it made sense it lasted, eg carsales.com.au went IPO on the day the bubble burst and closed fully subscribed... that was huge fun, the dealers could see it even tho they may have been tearing-up on other internet stuff like email voip gateways....

i really hope this site earns good dollars for it owners, it has helped me in so many more ways than just it's content..

tha's why i asked about the "e" so i can refer it to others easily...
