KansasCity.US – Geodomain Minisite
Sprint Nextel Corporation have their world headquarters based in Kansas City. Other major companies operating out of Kansas City include Applebee’s, Hallmark Cards, H&R Block, Russell Stover Candies, Bayer, and many others.
Andrew’s Kansas City geodomain is in the official United States web address, dotUS. He recently developed a minisite for Kansas City which contains information on travel, sports, attractions, shopping, and real estate. Minisites are scaled down versions of a full featured website, and they present an affordable first step for getting an undeveloped domain name up and running.
Andrew selected a minisite developer, Minisites.com, after having perused the field of web development companies working in this area. He writes about KansasCity.US and minisite development in his blog piece entitled, “Minisites.com Delivers: KansasCity.us“.
The .com version of this domain name is owned by McClatchy Interactive who are the third largest newspaper publisher in America. McClatchy, among others, have been struggling with declining newspaper revenues as a result of internet users choosing to go online for their news & information.
No doubt, geodomain websites and domain names are the future of media. So Andrew’s acquisition of KansasCity.US represents a Class A business decision. ccTLD’s are gaining increasing global recognition. And nothing is more impressive than having a huge metropolitan city or exotic travel destination.
Readers will be interested to know that Andrew is also the owner of SanFrancisco.US. Well known domain investor Rick Schwartz purchased Nashville.US in recent years, and Miami.US was auctioned off earlier this year via online domain broker, Sedo.com. This writer is the owner of Charlotte.US, the largest city in North Carolina (currently my home state).
