If you create your own web site, and you have been scammed by an invention promoter you should consider telling your story on the web. I know that many inventors are embarrassed that they were taken. But an inventor not telling their story enables the invention promoter's conduct. An inventor telling their story can save countless other people from losing many thousands of dollars and even more importantly from having their inventing dreams die a little at a time, year after year, as they wait for the invention promoter to sell their idea.

Register A Domain Name

RegSelect is an independent site that lists ICANN-approved domain registrars by price and features.

www.iRegistrations.net Lowest price for bare registration $5.95  All other features cost extra.

www.myDiscountDomains.com The Best Deal with bundled services such as forwarding.
Just $8.88 for a complete package of services such as forwarding both mail and to a web site. They do .COM .NET .ORG .INFO .BIZ .US  I transferred six domains to this organization.  The only problems I encountered were from the registrars who lost the business.

DomainSite.com Register for $12.99 one year, $55.00 for 5 years.  Includes free domain forwarding, but no email. 

www.dotster.com Register For Flat $15 Per Year  Note that additional services quickly run up their price.  Otherwise their service was good.

Editorial Note: It is recommended that all web sites with commercial intentions use their own domain name since use of such a name allows you to use the same personalized email and web address regardless of which service provider you may be using or may change to.

Beware ! ! ! - - - Some registrars play games with the registration.  In effect they own your domain. I have lost three domains as a result of this.  Registrars whom I strongly recommend you avoid are Verisign (formerly Network Solutions), NamesDirect, and DotRegistrar.com.  

DotRegistrar's system is clumsy and difficult to use.  Their prices are higher then other registrars and the services are poorer.  Bottom line poor value.  Even worse is that they require you to purchase in quantity to get a decent price, and then refuse to refund unused registrations.  They also cancel paid registrations without notice.  www.myDiscountDomains.com is a much better setup all around, better price and many more features included.  Better service and much easier to use then DotRegistrar.  DotRegestrar refused to refund about eighty dollars to Ronald J. Riley, founder of InventorEd.  Riley strongly recommends that you not use any of the companies listed below.

NamesDirect
Verisign (formerly Network Solutions)

Stopping Spam Harvesters

Spam, unsolicited commercial email has become a huge problem.  If you do not take precautions any email address you post on the web will be collected and added to the spammer's mail lists.  You will in short order find that between four and ten spam emails will arrive for every legitimate email you receive. 

I recommend that you avoid listing contact emails on every page, and instead use a link to a contact page which in turn list the email.  This makes it easy to change the email address if you start getting too much spam.
