Domains

I own a bunch of domains like www.jt30.com and www.cthreepo.com. I make some money off of them, usually enough to pay for the domain registration. It doesn’t cost me much to host them because I have a hosting plan that doesn’t charge extra for extra domains. A domain costs me $15 a year for registration fees (I use a company called NameBargain.com – less of a bargain each year, but it works well). If I don’t make $15 on a domain, I drop the domain.

I have been getting rid of the domains that don’t pay for themselves a few at a time. I just went through them again and I will be dropping a couple of more.

I am dropping:
AstoundingScienceFiction.com (Love the name, but I can’t keep them all).
kpgraham.com (I still will have KeithGraham.com)
blogseyeview.com
gthread.com – used to be my idea testing site
jt-30.com – not jt30.com which makes money
harpamp.com – not harpampS.com with an s, which makes a little money
I am thinking about dropping
audiocd.com – cool name that makes no money
freenameastar.com – used to make some small change, but no more.
These last two are sentimental. AudioCD was the first domain I registered, and FreeNameAStar was just starting to catch on before International Star Registry threatened me with a law suit and I had to close it down.

This will save me about $100 a year.

I am not getting out of the domain business. I put in two bids on domains that are expiring. One is a microphone company that was big in the 40s and 50s, but is out of business. Its domain name is expiring, but I think the name recognition might fit in to my harmonica sites. Another domain is for a small time book seller site that had a very cool name and a loyal following. I would like to move my “promotional” kindle book search to the site and make it so authors and publishers can add their own books to the site – and I want to make it so the original owners can add books if they want.

I will know if I get the new domains around the end of September.

Another issue is that I need to get rid of CCBlues.com. I don’t want to host the site anymore, but the group running it now are non-technical and couldn’t manage the transfer.

 

 

Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

Keith Graham's CThreePO.com Links

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.

Enjoy!
