It's not only about ZakStunts, but...

...about the portal too!

I've decided to pay the yearly 25$ and upgrade my dynamic DNS account, so I can have a custom DNS. Beside this I only have to pay the domain registration fees, which I can also afford now.
 
Which means:

1. We'll finally have our own domain name! Currently I'm considering two choices:
http://www.stunts.hu OR http://www.stuntsracing.net
(unfortunately most of the top level domains for stunts are already reserved)

Tell me which one you'll like better, or if you have another domain idea (one which is available!!!) tell me. And why?

2. Because this way we can have nice subdomains. As many sites are already hosted on my server (and I plan to operate the server further as it's always handy to have one, despite all the troubles), we can have nice names like:
zak.stunts.hu
unskilled.stunts.hu
career.stunts.hu
and we can have static redirects like:
sdr.stunts.hu which points to Mark's site.
kalpen.stunts.hu which points to www.kalpen.de/stunts

Would be nice, wouldn't it be?

IMPORTANT! If you still encounter problems with the site speed or reliability, please tell, because then I might consider buying some webspace, it's not considerably more expensive. But still, I prefer having a server up and running.

Other free domains ideas : 4dstunts.net or stunts4d.net ("4D" sentence can mean new people from countries where game was distributed by MindScape, like France), stuntscommunity.net, stuntswebring.net, ...
I focused on .net domain names as our goal is web activity.

I like stuntsracing.net. It sounds like a huge community racing Stunts games. ;)

It would be good too to backup inactive competitions like JTK did with Lukas' Stunts Grand Prix.
ISA and IRC datas has been mainly lost, StuntsLOL.cjb.net url is dead (I think Leo has the datas in his own page but cjb.net redirection is dead), and HOTU Stunts 2004 link is now http://community.the-underdogs.info/gamecomp/stunts/ (because underdogs domain was changed from .org to .info).

I vote for stunts.hu: shorter, easier and HUNGARIAN. ;) And it also sounds better: zak.stunts, unskilled.stunts...

About IRC: let's ask Mingva to re-send it. I won't due to our big-big-big-big friendship. ;D
