Another inexpensive idea -- buy a domain name that people might be inclined to use while looking for you. I checked, and ilariarossellidelturco.com is available. ilariarossellidelturco.org has been taken. If you're the owner, you should use it. I'd suggest spending the $8.50 per year to get the name that people naturally assume you'd have. (JeffFuchs.com is already taken... drat!).

You can buy a domain name cheap, forward it to your established domain name, without moving your site. You'll have two domain names, but you'll be taking advantage of people's natural tendency to add "dot com" to your name to find your site.

Jeff, thanks again, I might go for that domain.
Who on earth could have bought the .org I do not know.
When I bought my domain I thought the shortter the better.
Such a long surname, a first name that nobody understands outside Italy (Alana? Alariah?)...it's one of the reasons for which I married someone called Lais.

About the html instead it's going to be hard, since I am the internet pioneer among my friends!

I really appreciate your help,

Ilaria

When you say SOG, I assume you mean SOG Forum? They are not one and the same. SOG refers to the main site only.

Though many do not honor it, technically .org is for non-profits and .net is for internet service providers. I would personally never register a .org or .net domain name.
