New Domain!

Post by Shade » Wed Mar 26, 2008 4:44 pm

Since today, you are able to visit our community with unreal-tournament.net ! :)

I will move the hole website to unreal-tournament.net soon, so ut99.org will be the alternative (shorter) Domain for the lazy gamblers here! :P

Well, why this decision?
unreal-tournament.net is easier to find in Google, thats the most important point! The second point is, that UT"99" is not the official abbreviation for Unreal Tournament, it was created by the community.

So its your choice now if you use unreal-tournament.net or ut99.org ;)

So, what you mean is who goes to ut99.org is redirected to unreal-tournament.net, right?

If so, you have to change the banner, because is currently "ut99" there :wink:

One thing, will you change the whole skin graphics of the site?

UT99 aka UT GOTY is UT (Unreal Tournament)

Unreal Tournament / UT is the first Game. The others are UT2003, UT2004 and UT3 ;)

PS: At the moment, the website is on ut99.org, but you can visit it with unreal-tournament.net too. When i move the website, i will not change the graphic. :wink:

I like UT99 more. Sounds more like a site which supports UT GOTY not 2k3/2k4/3

Really good argument, allowedly I have never thought about that

Why do I leave? click here
What I want to do next: Joining an UDK team (uncertain however) and improve 3D modelling and texture editing skills
Thanks to those who visibly supported me until/at the end!

it's cool. I thought that unreal-tournament.net domain could be possibly already taken. But it wasn't, that's good. I prefer ut99.org, I dunno why, it's just saved in my bookamerks :)

Other thing you could do is to install SEO mod for forums, it will be much search engine friendly so you will get much more traffic from google and other search engines ;)

I suggest you to do what all you can with SEO. It's really better links than current one, let's say ut99.org/viewtopic.php?t=39900015 (example), then it would be ut99.org/topic-name-t39900015/ (example).
