Medical Domains – Attorneys: Help Your Clients Build & Protect Their Online Image

  

Are your medical clients having trouble branding themselves online in a crowded marketplace?  Do you represent a hospital that would like to protect their brand by owning a prestigious .Md domain?  If so, please continue reading this article and visit My Medical Domains. 

.Md or Medical Domains as they have come to be known are becoming increasingly popular among the medical community as they represent an opportunity to turn the clock back from an online marketing perspective.  Imagine that it’s 20 years ago and that you have the vision to know how the Internet is going to unfold. The visionaries who raced to purchase popular domain names before others fully understood their value made a considerable amount of money selling those domains to companies and individuals who wanted to protect their brand online.

The reality is that it’s impossible to turn the clock back but you could be one of those visionaries who race to get a popular medical domain before the rest of the medical community discovers the value of owning a .Md domain.

Individual doctors can purchase a medical domain containing their name and add the prestigious domain to the business cards, patient communication, etc.

Example 1: JohnSmith.Md.

Medical Institutions such as hospitals, clinics, laboratories, etc. should seriously consider purchasing a medical domain to protect their online brand an image before someone who is not affiliated with their organization purchases the domain.

Example 2: ABCHospital.Md

Search Engine Optimization (“SEO”) savvy businesses who are aggressively seeking to acquire new clients through online marketing should look to acquire medical domains containing industry key words to enhance their organically generated traffic.

Example 3: MesotheliomaPatients.Md

So where do you go to find out if your name is available and to purchase the medical domain? An innovative company called My Medical Domains provides its clients with quick and easy service.  The Company has a Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQ”) page which should answer most or all of your questions.

In case you are wondering about the .Md extension and why it is not already popular with the medical community, you might be interested to learn its origin.  The .Md domain was NOT created for the medical community but actually was assigned by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) to the Republic of Moldova.

Moldova, officially the Republic of Moldova, is a landlocked nation located in Eastern Europe  between Romania (West) and Ukraine (North, East and South).  With the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, Moldova declared its independence and adopted a new constitution on July 29, 1994.

Unlike some other countries who impose restrictions on who may purchase country specific domains, Moldova does not impose any such restrictions. The purchase of these domains is open to anyone.  There are no citizenship or any other conditions imposed on the purchase of .Md domains.

Examples of companies who have purchased .Md domains (as reported by MyMedicalDomains.com) are the following:

  • the National Institute of Health (NIH) acquired and is currently using “physician.md” which forwards to “nih.gov”
  • Sermo acquired and is currently using “sermo.md” which forwards to “sermo.com”
  • Mayo Clinic reserved but is currently not using “mayo.md” and “mayoclinic.md” (neither domain does resolve to a website as of now)

So if you would like to join the growing list of forward thinking medical professionals and organizations who are securing a medical domain to enhance or protect their online brand, visit My Medical Domains and purchase your own .Md.

More Than 25,000 Americans Want the Death Star Built

 

A Petition entitled Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016 that may have begun as a “lark” by John D of Longmont, CO on November 14, 2012 on Thursday reached the required 25,000-plus signature threshold necessary for the United States Government to provide a formal response.  The petition states:

Those who sign here petition the United States government to secure funding and resources, and begin construction on a Death Star by 2016.

By focusing our defense resources into a space-superiority platform and weapon system such as a Death Star, the government can spur job creation in the fields of construction, engineering, space exploration, and more, and strengthen our national defense.

The petition demands that the Obamma Administration build a Death Star much like the one that was featured in the 1977 Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

What is even more fascinating than reaching the required threshold so quickly is the attention that is being demonstrated around the globe.  I am writing this article from Eastern Europe.  More specifically, Balti in the Republic of Moldova.  The petition was brought to my attention by several Java programmers working inside of the Alec Russo University. Apparently many of the students in the University are familiar with this petition so I can only assume that the Internet is spreading the news like wildfire.

In case you are wondering what the project would cost, a February 21, 2012 Forbes article written by Carol Pinchefsky entitled: How Much Would It Cost to Build the Death Star from Star Wars? had the following to say:

Even if you can imagine quite a bit, Centives, the economics blog of students of Lehigh University, says it would cost “$852,000,000,000,000,000. Or roughly 13,000 times the world’s GDP” to build the Death Star…and that’s just the cost of steel production.

 If only our government could be as organized and work as quickly as the construction in the video below:
