    I recently had a customer who bought the name: crmsolutions.gb.com

    I pointed out to them that this was not a domain but a subdomain...

    I had concerns about the following:

    1. how anti spam tools may tar one subdomain with the same brush as another...
    2. that search engines could change the way they see / value subdomains overnight thus potentially making your position to your competitors of proper domains very vulnerable...
    3. that there is no official body in charge of sub domains protecting the owner...

    No problems if you want a toy web site, but not really an option for a serious long term investment of time and effort that many business sites will have...

    I would like to know other prople's opinions and experiences...

    Cheers Hagen

    subdomains are not something you want to rely on unless you own the actual domain.
