Hi all,

I've got the following two domain names which I use actively for email.

They are :-

. with.us
. entertain.us

I tend to read them as "WITH US" rather than "WITH dot U S"

If you go to www.with.us you can see the approach I've taken. Essentially I've got links which make use of the subdomains like :-

. Travel.with.us (TRAVEL WITH US)
. spend.with.us
. shop.with.us
. save.with.us
. redirect.with.us (A working redirection site)

Sites such as garden.with.us are currently being developed. The potential here, I believe, is in a portal which makes good use of the sub-domains. Due to current traffic volumes I'm developing all the sub-domains, of which there are about 60 in total I've got sample sites for, into affiliate style sites. Current affiliate registered and being developed are ;-

. Travel.with.us (Expedia)
. Talk.with.us (Carphone warehouse)
. Search.with.us (Works currently but makes use of Amazon banners.)
. Garden.with.us (B & Q)
. Spend.with.us (American Experss)
. Shop.with.us (Amazon)
. Entertain.us (Amazon)
. email.with.us (Hotmail)
. Win.with.us (Loquax)
. Diet.with.us (Weightwatchers)

Sorry for blithering on but do let me know what you think.

Sorry for being a pain everyone, but does anyone have any thoughts on these domains?

I like With better than Entertain for this approach. What kind of traffic volumes are you getting?

Without any promotion I'm getting about 50->80 hits per day. I've found that when I'm using a specific name like garden.with.us for site development the testgroup feedback I get is great about the name and it's 'cool' factor.

I know one thing, I've never had anyone forget the name and it always get a bit of a buzz when I tell them my contact address is design@wth.us or any of the other 'obvious' email address/site addresses.

What do you think of the template designs associated with the various domains?

Thanks for the comments. It's nice to get that kind of feedback.

Also, thanks for letting me know about the plain old http://with.us URL wasn't working. I recently rebuilt my server and left off that part of the config. I'll no doubt have been missing some hits on that one.

I agree that "with.us" has a lot of potential. It could be $X,XXX or even more for the right buyer. It's a lot like "about.com" in its broad appeal.

You may want to focus on the "community" aspect - the idea of people doing things together.

I know that the name screams community which is why at the heart of all of the websites I'm creating http://chat.with.us which will be a phpbb based forum system.

The system 'under the hood' in a centralized membership engine that I've created. This is currently being used to best effect at http://learn.with.us which is a directory style learning resource database. It's locked just now while development is finishing off.

Would add that it doesn't have to be either/or; dual sense of ".US" and "with us" can and should work perfectly. Community aspect is great.

Great name with.us
Community/team feel is brilliant and would pay high $x,xxx if I had the cash - it's worth it.
