I should clarify. When I said a second URL, what I meant was an address (such as ausfords.com or something - I haven't worked it out yet) that would instantly redirect to eafalcon.com. Otherwise an eafalcon sticker would be inappropriate on many vehicles in the club (almost derogatory... hehe).

I know that registering the domain is a cheap and quick procedure, but I'm not so sure how cheap it is to host a redirection site. There was a time when we were going to have a .com site redirecting to ford.i8... so I suppose I'll just be resuming that research. :)

lol

Redirection will not cost anything. You can point as many urls as you want to the one account in the same way as you did for the eafalcon.com url

Re: lol

Really? Hmm then the only question is which URL to choose. I'm open to all suggestions...

Re: my suggestion...

Well if you wish to do that by all means go ahead, but there are a few points to consider. This is an EA-ED (plus LWB equivalents) club, so it is not restricted to EAs anyway

There may be a market for an EF-EL, or even an EA-EL club.

A word of warning, though, as I had to spend hours last night on the site, and I was just catching up with e-mails I had to send regarding stickers, new applications, etc. And this is only for an EA-ED club.

My suggestion would be to make a web site about whichever models interest you (ideally including your own car), and I will link to that in your listing on the club pages.

Re: my suggestion...

another way i was considering when making another site was to put a section called "your ford" then in that page i put ea, eb, ed, ef, el and so on... (each one with its own link within the site but the only one (EA) is linked directly to this site so i wont have ea's going to mine they still come here or put ea-ed linked to here and the rest part of my site..?

Re: my suggestion...

The thing is, I already have an 'Other Fords' section of the site which can have any Ford there. Even someone I know with an Explorer has been wanting his car up there.

My suggestion would be creating an independent site, mate. If you need any assistance, just write a post here titled "D'oh help me ILSA". :)
