Name.com, Go Daddy and Register.com are domain name registrars, of which there are many and all of whom have the authority to register a domain name on your behalf. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the authority from which the registrars get their ability. ICANN helps maintain the top level domains like .com, .net, .uk, ...

You can also just add "+foo" and "+bar" to distinguish your normal gmail address for each site. They will all go to your normal gmail address. For instance, if your name is bob@gmail.com, you can use "bob+amazon@gmail.com" and "bob+facebook@gmail.com", and so on.

It's a common problem, the email addresses are forged (this is easy to do with Internet email) usually the senders of spam choose random "from" addresses constructed from their list of target addresses. The flood should subside after a few days (or weeks). There is nothing really practical you can do to stop the spammers using your domain name in their ...

Unfortunately, you can't do this without having to create a new Google Apps account. From this Google Apps article: You can associate additional domain names with your Google Apps account, as separate domains or as domain aliases for your primary domain. However, at this time you can't change which domain is your primary domain. Your only ...

Depending on your domain registrar (or maybe you have hosting/email?) you can forward an email address (eg. joe@example.com) to your gmail account. Gmail can then be configured to send mail as joe@example.com. Or, if you actually have a hosted mailbox for joe@example.com then you can get gmail to download (POP3) mail from this mailbox. Either way, you can ...

If you have an existing domain that is hosted by Gmail under the free program, you can add another domain that will provide you with what you want. Just log into your account and Choose "Add a domain or a domain alias" the choose "Add another domain" in the dialog that pops up.

Yes, it is possible to have multiple GitHub Pages sites within one account. Create another GitHub repository and push your site files to the gh-pages branch. This would result in the site being hosted at tshepang.github.io/<repo-name>. Now, push another file "CNAME" to the same repository and branch and fill it with movies.tshepang.net. Log in to your ...

You'll find all the help you need for Google Apps here, with sign up details here and information on verification here, which includes the option of using a DNS record instead of a web page.

I see Raithlin already suggested Google Apps for Your Domain (GAFYD), but I just wanted to add the link to the free version, as it can be kind of hard to find. Free GAFYD

You can indeed use Google Apps for a domain and have a website on the same domain. I've done it. Plenty others do it too. Nothing precludes you from doing the same. When you verify an apps account for a domain, you have a few choices. One is to upload a special text/html file to your web domain, which requires hosting to be in place. Alternatively, you can ...

You can switch to Google Apps (free). This lets you have a Google account on your domain name, with Gmail working directly. You'd have to use that new account for Gmail (and migrate your old emails in, if desired), but it would be a total Google solution.

Your domain at GoDaddy points to the IP address at Blogger where your files that make up your site are located Locations Name - GoDaddy Files (HTML)* - Blogger *The DNS record is indeed at GoDaddy The HTML, settings, and much of the post-contents are indeed stored on Blogger/Google's servers. But images are stored in Picasa-web-albums (unless you've ...

There is also gmail.com. See "googlemail.com domain for certain countries" for more details.

I love domai.nr for this sort of thing. Doesn't search all TLD's, but checks availability and recommends similar/abbreviated names across TLD's. Not perfect, but the best I've used.

How did no one suggest http://ajaxwhois.com? By far the best/fastest option.

There is an auditing API available in Business, Education and ISP accounts that will allow you to download the contents of a user's GMail account including spam, sent and deleted items. Google doesn't provide a GUI for it, but some third-party software, such as Appogee DMS, does.

I had a similar problem - for me the answer was to not only have the new address added as a "Send mail as:" but also to choose "Send through X's SMTP servers"

It looks like you can do a search like this using http://www.namedroppers.com/ (Note, I do not have any experience or association with NameDroppers.com, but it looks legitimate to me.)

What about related:jobs.alberta.ca?

You can check for common issues with mxtoolbox http://www.mxtoolbox.com/? Try the blacklist and spf test first, and fix those if they are not defined.

You will need to create two A name records, one which says FLOSS.tshepang.net and another which says movies.tshepang.net. Create two posterous blogs, and link them to their corresponding domain names. I'm not too sure if this would work, because I don't know how posterous handles sub domains. Still you might want to try it out.

The Adwords API lets you access the Adwords Keyword Tool. For domain name availability checks, there is a now closed question on Stack Overflow: Finding if domain name is already registered? Let me know if you still miss something.

If you are looking to check for domain names on all TLDs as you say in your question, don't go past iWantMyName which searches over 80 extensions (as far as I can tell - that figure does include things like .co.uk as well though). If you are primarily looking for the innovative features and name suggestions, as you say in your question, then check out all ...

You can not do this in Google Apps. You have to login to each account using the specified username and password. You can change the password but there is no way to access everyones mail unless you forward a copy from the users accounts.

The web app Wordoid.com is superb for name ideas, as well as checking on the availability of .com and .net domains. It lets you specify a starting word, then builds up prefixes and/or suffices around that word, checking for "naturalness" against up to 5 languages (English, Spanish, French, Italian, German). You can also specify the maximum word length. ...

I believe what you want is their mail hosting service. You basically setup the domain MX records through google, but you'll need to point your domain to google's name servers. The link explains the process.

If you have an existing email account at your domain that you do not want to change, but you want to send mail using your Gmail account that says it is from your address at your domain, then you can just add a custom From address to your Gmail account. In Gmail, go to Settings » Accounts » Add another email address you own to enter your address at your ...
