New domain name?

I just heard from David that renewing bricolage.cc is expensive
relative to a .com, which got me thinking. bricolagecms.com is
currently available and seems like a more memorable URL. We have a
year until .cc expires again but what do people think about
transitioning over to bricolagecms.com, or at least having both?

As I just mentioned on the users list, I picked up bricolagecms.org
(we're not really a .com). Thoughts?

I think it would be valuable to have a generic domain for Bricolage like a .com
and that that country code domains like .cc, which is the Cocos (Keeling)
Islands, are only valuable if you live there or focus your business there.

The only reason to keep the older .cc domain for awhile is as a redirector, so
people with bookmarks or links to that can more easily find the new site.

Fine with me although we'll need to keep .cc around for at least the
next year or two to cope with people finding it in search engines and
websites.

You could go to the trouble of searching for inbound links and
requesting a change but that's a lot of work.

Probably easier just to hang on to the old domain.
