It is always a good idea to secure alternate versions of your primary domain name simply to prevent competitors from trying to squeeze in on your name and branding efforts.
Buying multiple domain names is a great strategy that can be used to capture additional type-in traffic, secure other branding avenues you may wish to pursue, or simply to prevent your competitors from securing them.
Why you should secure multiple domain extension?
Protect your identity from being stolen and build a brand name.
You can capitalize all the traffic when people uses keywords to search in their search engine.
Improve your chances of ranking well within search engines around the world.
Type-in traffic is when someone goes to the address bar of their web browser and types in keywords.com instead of performing a keyword search on a search engine. Securing domain names with a fair amount of type-in traffic can be a great boost to sales.
Here’s an example if you are selling themes and the list below are your domains:
When someone type the keyword “themes”, you can capture potential type-in traffic you might also secure and redirect to your main url or domain if you have multiple domains instead of giving away the potential to others.
Plural and/or singular versions of your domain
It is always a good idea to secure potential plural and/or singular versions of your domain name. This allow you to capture all traffic from any people that may have had a different spelling of your site in mind, which may increase your visitor rate.

Many WordPress blogging communities are facing the intense amount of pressure with the current bill where SOPA was introduced to the U.S. House of Representatives by Represenative Lamar Smith on October 26, 2011. Some hosting companies opt to support SOPA while many others hosting companies opt to oppose SOPA as they believe this act violates the freedom of speech by using the internet.
To clarify most internet users what is SOPA, we will have to begin with two simple summary of these two bills as reported by 1stwebdesigner and also Brian Koenig:
PIPA, is the abbreviation for Protect IP Act.
So what is PIPA?
PIPA will give U.S. corporations and the government the right to seek affirmative legal action with any website that they see as enabling copyright infringement whether of U.S. origin or not. Here is a breakdown of all that they will have the power to do.
Force U.S. internet providers to block access to websites deemed as enablers of copyright infringement
Seek legal action by suing search engines, blog sites, directories, or any site in general to have the black listed sites removed from their website
Having the rights to force advertising services on infringing websites, and those supporting of them, to remove them from their advertising accounts
Companies will also have the power to sue any new websites that get started if they believe that they are not doing a good job of preventing infringement on your website
SOPA, is the abbreviation for Stop Online Piracy Act.
So what is SOPA?
SOPA will work in closely with PIPA. SOPA is nothing more so than the U.S. government and private corporations black list. Here is a breakdown of the power given to the government and private corporations.
The U.S. Attorney General can now seek a court order that would force search engines, advertisers, DNS providers, servers, and payment processors from having any contact with allegedly infringing websites
It will allow private corporations to create their own personal hit lists composed of websites they feel are breaking their copyright policies, ironically this doesn’t have any odd feelings of a legal mafia at all. These companies will be able to directly contact a website’s payment processors a notice to cut all off payment involvement with the targeted website. This payment processors and website of question will then have five days to act before it is simply taken down.
Payment processors will have the power to cut off any website they work with, as long as they can provide a strong reason of why they believe this site is violating copyrights.
These are some of the hypothetical outcome on how SOPA/PIPA can affect you:
Blog sites could be blocked or shut down (without any legal oversight)
Crippling burden on intermediary sites like YouTube and Facebook
Copyright holders already have the power to take down offending material.
Say goodbye to innovation
Legal action over a child singing a song
U.S. Government hopes they will spark global change (other countries will follow suit)
