(ARA) – What do you get the pet that has everything? How about its own domain on the Internet? A new online service, DomainsForYourPet.com, lets you register a Web site address for your dog, cat or any other nonhuman companion.
The U.S. pet population numbers 353 million companion animals, including 141 million cats and dogs (about 65 million dogs and 75 million cats), with an estimated 62 percent of all U.S. households owning at least one pet, and three- quarters of those households owning two or more pets.
“We know how passionate people are about their pets, so we think it’s a doggoned good idea to have a customized Web site for showcasing your pet to friends and family. It’s said that every dog has its day. Now every dog can have its own domain,” said John Lee, director of marketing for the new service. “This is another example of the trend we see in which everyone eventually will have a personal Web site to use as the basic platform for communication. Getting to that point requires an easy, low-cost way of registering an Internet domain name. We’re pleased to provide that part of the solution, as well as a variety of value-packed Web-hosting plans.”
Pet owners or their friends can use DomainsForYourPet.com to establish full ownership of a Web site name for Spot or Tabby, set up a free “under construction” page, and have access to an online control panel for managing the site. Cost of the service is $6.95 per year.
And why stop with the domain name? Proud pet owners can use an online service called InstantSite to build a simple, customized Web site for sharing pictures, training-graduation announcements, milestone moments, whimsical Weblogs or “blogs,” and more.
