and others.  

 

Because of this, we will be offering for sale over 50 domain names.  See list below.  Many of these domains have not been on the market for 16 years.  It is important that you consider these domains and this information carefully.  This may well be the last time any of these domains is ever available for sale.

 

Reasons A City Should Have Control of These Domain Names

If allowed to expire, these domains can be registered by anyone in the world.   This includes other cities, people in China, etc.

 

These domains may never become available for your city again.

 

If someone buys these domains, and your city eventually decides they want them back, the asking price (if they are willing to sell) may be exorbitant.

 

If the domains you use have your city name or city name plus state, you will receive a much better ranking in Google and other search engines.

 

You have control over how the domains are used.  If someone else has control, they may use the domains for other purposes that you may not like (e.g., foreign web sites, shopping malls, porn sites).

 

Given control of these domains, another city might draw your visitors away.  For example, “Don’t visit XYZ city; visit ABC city instead!  We are a much better place to visit.”

 

Given control of these domains, a citizen, a current city employee, or a former city employee who has a grudge with the city could set up a website and express his/her negative views.

 

With multiple domain names, you can point one domain to a tourist website, one to a city-business website (e.g., council meeting minutes), one domain to a Facebook page, etc.

 

If you have an existing website, you can point these domains to your existing website.  This means you don’t have to change your existing website’s domain name.

 

If you have a dot gov (.gov) website, keep in mind that you are not allowed to ever have paid advertisements on the website.  This is a Federal regulation.

 

Even if you don’t use these domain names, you still have control of them – not somebody else.

 

Domain names are inexpensive to have.  It costs around $16.00 per domain per year.

 

Please note that, in many cases, we are selling groups of domains.  For example, the Gallatin group contains four (4) different domains.  Your purchase gets you all of the domains in the group.  You may use all of them, or you may choose to sell some of them to other organizations in the area.

Note 1: We are only selling the domain names, not the websites nor the website content.  The websites were taken down.  Once you have purchased a domain, you may point it to an existing website, create a new website, etc.  The choice is yours.

 

Note 2: Once you have purchased a domain, you are responsible to pay the yearly renewal fee.  This is approximately $18 per year per domain.

 

Note 3: The owners of NMT Web Designs, LLC are retiring.  We've been doing this since 1999, and it's time to move on to other interests.
