Characters to Use on Your Domain
If you are new to choosing a domain name you will want to know more about the characters that can be used within this name. Throughout this article we will describe some of the features related to these characters to know more about registering for the first time with a name. When it comes to second level domain names, then the length can be up to 63 characters.
These are names with a label that precedes the registry extension (the Top Level Domain – TLD) directly. Following is a guide for those characters that are considered valid within the use of domain names, even if here and there you can meet some exceptions to the rules. They will be as well displayed for your knowledge down below.
- Alphabet’s letters are allowed.
- Any of the numbers from 0 to 9.
- Hyphen can be used as long as domain name doesn’t start and/or en with it.
- Combinations of letters, numbers and hyphens are also allowed.
- You can use numbers to begin and/or end a domain name.
- It is possible to use multiple instances of hyphens, but there are cases where you can not use double hyphen.
- You can not use forms of punctuation, accent characters or symbols.
- As to the length of the domain name, this one can range between 3 and 63 characters.
- All of the above can be resumed in the ‘LDH’ rule meaning ‘Letter, Digits, Hyphens’.
- When it comes to double hyphens, they can be used for generic extensions such as .net, .com, and .org. However, with some country code TLD operators, they are not allowed, for instance as it is the case with extensions of Australian origin. More than this, you should know that many people see the use of double hyphens as an indication of ‘spammy domains’.

As I’ve been building my network of sites over the years I’ve noticed something strange about blog comments. I tend to spend way more time trying to fight off spam comments then I do approving real humans that are commenting on my site. I’m saying “No More Comments” on this wordpress blog for now, I may enable them later but right now I’m just going to disable it. I’ve been running this blog since 2006, so there is quite a bit of content that has been posted over the years. Apparently that makes some of the backend stuff a little slower doing some task. (like deleting spammy comments) I’ll search around when I have time to see if there is a plugin or log I can clear to make the backend smoother, but for now we’ll just go without the option of commenting and direct those to my other sites which are built for discussion. Eg.. Admin Talk, this forum would cover any questions or comments that would be posted on this blog.
I also have a few projects that I’m working on, one is vBulletin Connect, this was started on another domain but had copyright issues so I went with this smaller option. It was getting great traffic when the news of vBulletin 5 Connect first came out, now that I had to change the URL I’ll have to fight to pull those number one spots back.
The other project that I’m really excited about is How to Install a Forum, It’s going to be a blog on forum software installation and optimizing those installs. I found a good domain name that had very low competition and about 30,000 global searches a month. It’s not the best ratio but it’s a topic I know I can write about and find great content with. I’ll also be able to link back to my Admin Forum, which is always a good thing.Read More
Why should you run a contest on your forum?
So I’ve been kicking around the idea of running another forum contest, I ran several with the site I sold in 2009 and two posting contest on my General Forums site but this would be my first contest on Admin Talk, my new webmaster forum.
The best things about forum contest that I’ve found are; 1 getting your member excited about posting and 2 contacting your sponsors and helping them out in exchange for free products.
I’m getting ready to run a 3 month forum contest on Admin Talk, I’ll be posting the contest thread on the 16th of July. I choose the middle of the month because we weren’t ready on the 1st, and I’d rather run the contest at the first of the month or halfway through. I’ve found that I’ll get better results verses trying to run the contest during other parts of the month.
A few tips on running a successful forum contest are…
- Make sure you have an active group of members to help along the way. You can get all the new users you want but if you don’t have a core group of contributors that will reply and continue posting, the contest could fail.
- Offer great prizes; make them WANT to post on your forum. I try to offer niche specific prizes if possible. This will help your forums and help your sponsors.
- Have a plan in place; know how your contest is going to run, how you’ll pick your winners and make that clear to your members.
- Quality post; this goes along with the last tip but the goal of the admin is to fill their forum with quality post. Add incentives for those wanting to post articles or other ways to get long quality post that will encourage discussion.
- Let your contest be known! Once you’ve posted the rules for your forum contest, spread that news like wildfire. Make a press release, post your contest on other forums and blogs. This is a great for link bait; you’ll get quality links and traffic from those sites.
- Happy post. The most important thing is to have fun with your contest; the more fun you can have the better the contest will be.
Hello vBSEO Friends and Customers, we are happy to announce that vBSEO 3.6.0 Gold is now Gold and is available to all licensed users for installation on production servers with full support. You may download vBSEO 3.6 now from the downloads area for any active license.

vBSEO 3.6.0 Gold Highlights
1. A full featured “Likes” system: A “Social Graph” for your community
The long-awaited Likes Tree integration is now available! Made popular by Facebook, and now making its way to forums and social web applications everywhere, the “Likes” system allows your users to effortlessly provide feedback to one another on the content they find most useful. Most importantly, this activity creates an underlying layer of data that works as a “Social Graph” for your community, opening the doors to a myriad of USEFUL features that have the potential to alter the way we interact with forums in different ways. One of them is enabling people to find the site’s most useful content more efficiently (see our “Likes Tree” feature below). Another powerful use for this data is the ability to surface the most popular and/or relevant content for search engines, be it via Search Engine Friendly pages that list this content, or by using it as priority multipliers for your Search Engine XML sitemaps (coming in vBSEO Search Engine XML Sitemaps 3.1).
2. The vBSEO “Likes Tree”: Redefining the way people interact with forums
It gives you (and your users) an instant “birds-eye-view” of the “Likes” distribution in a thread, allowing you to *quickly* identify the most useful/important content, no matter how long the conversation is. This new feature represents a new paradigm as it allows people to extract more value out of forums in less time.
3. Updated Social Bookmarking and Sharing system
The vBSEO Bookmarks system has been highly improved. It now appears as a pop-out link in the post bit to save space and better fit the postbit layout.

Those who are exploring the expansive world of social media marketing could learn a thing or two about it from the bigwig companies who have made it to the top of their business niche.
Here are five companies and their strategies for handling social media marketing:
Overall, AT&T knows exactly how to run social media marketing. Their blog posts relay updates about their products, and they respond to their customers’ ideas and concerns (positive or negative) promptly. They also have a Spanish blog for their non-English speaking customers. They have some videos of new products on Youtube and a video contest. On one website, they have pictures and short mentions of big celebrity events linking back to an entertainment portion of the AT&T website called U-verse. This is a company that models an excellent social media marketing strategy.
The CMO, Barry Judge, seems to manage most of their social media marketing. Most recent was a holiday charity. These always offer valuable improvements in business ethics and reputation. One thing I was really impressed with was his quick response to a controversial issue that was in the blog, which mentioned an alternative faith’s seasonal holiday. He updates his consumers and answers their questions quickly. With 15,800 followers on Twitter, this massive giant isn’t doing too badly.Read More
