short update 
Have been to busy to blog lately. Just some update, fast!

We have added .tv and .cc domains at 12register, against very interesting prices! We have also lowered .eu and .net prices .

Im currently looking at .cn , .tw and .us domains to add next, and we are developing .ru , so we can introduce that as well.

At yourhosting , we have officially launched our new server and hosting manager last monday, all new clients automatically have this. Older clients will be migrated within the next 3 months (big project).

Personally, I have started a course of SEO , along with one of our employees. I need to have a plain html website for my excercizes, so I'm building a simple one right now. I am going to start a small domain shop and focus on specific countries and domaintypes. Just to see what SEO can do.

The domain shop is something I'm having developed by a programmer in India, as a test for us to find out if off-shore development is worthwhile. Can't say just yet, but it could be succesfull...

.nl back to numbers 
What a news, SIDN are going to allow .nl domains that contain only numbers. So you can register your telephonenumber or birthday as a domain.

I'm just wondering, domainnames have been introduced because people can remember words beter then numbers . Isn't this a step backwards instead of forwards then?

More on domains .TV .CC .MOBI and front running 
So i was talking about offering .mobi at 12Register.com a week ago, we have started offering this domain last week. All seems to go very well, we hope our customers will start offering the domain as well. We are one of the cheapest, with EUR 10,12 per year.

No news yet about .IN, my business relation in India is still looking for a good solution for us to meet the requirement.

Next domaintypes I'm going to add are .tv, .cc and .jobs. These are all offered by the sponsoring registry Verisign domains. I hope we can introduce these within 3 weeks as well.

There was also some good news from ICANN last week, regarding a new problem in the world of domain registration. They call it domain name front running. You can read more here . It's basically a problem that existst for a longer time, suppose you would like to know if your desired domainname is free, and you visit a random registrar page, like www.12register.com (we don't do this! its an example!). You would enter your desired name and check if its available. The bad guys (not www.12register.com) would then immediately register your desired name, and offer it to you for extremely high prices.

ICANN will look into this, but its hard to really do something. Use of whois to check domain availability is not illegal. To proof that you used someone else domain request is hard. It would be nice if they can do something, but I doubt it.

Development at YourHosting last week was pretty good, we had some releases like the telephone recognition. Next week we will be releasing some more, like the new server configuration and extra options.

Ciao!

Development developing! 
Its friday, so no tech releases today. We have decided this long ago, since we have had several issues with friday releases of software updates. Sometimes you can't wait till monday with the bug fix.

For next week we have several nice things to release at YourHosting.nl. We have a new hosting server model, which has a totally rebuilt configuration panel. It has php4 and php5 support and you have the following options:
- site backup
- sitebuilder
- configurable mailbox size
- optionally create extra ftp users
- anti leeching
- subdomain redirect to folders or url's
- and many more new features

Besides that, our internal software will be upgraded as well. We have added telephone recognition. When a customer calls, you will automatically get all the customer data in your screen. All thanks to the use of Voip and our homemade crm software (YourCrm) we use.

Next week we will also be introducing new MI tools (management info), so we can look into the performance of our (30) employees by generating reports. We can also analyse the number of new customers per day, phonecalls, emails, etc. etc.

Very sexy, right!
