The Grant Land story seven years ago also quoted the words of Monte Cahn, the founder of Moniker, the URL registrar. Com, he is the intermediary of MLB seeking to protect the domain name.
According to Grant Rand, Kahn said: “After several attempts and conversations with [Ray’s], it is clear that they want to keep their name and brand.”. “So I suggest TheRays.com and can get it for MLB with a small part of their spending on Rays.com.”
Zeller told GeekWire that besides history, simple URLs are good for network traffic and restaurant reservations.
“Having a four word domain name is a bit magical,” he said. “SEO and indicators, all these things are great. I think we have done a lot of home page visits, because the domain name is so simple.”
This long-term restaurant may even have its own baseball craze.
