Google Webmaster tools - register two domains for the same site?


Hi all,

I have bought a .co.uk and a .com for my business, both point to the same website. To be more specific the website is hosted on the .co.uk domain and I have the .com redirecting to it.

Now my question is, with my .co.uk address already authenticated in my Webmaster dashboard, should I try and add the .com as well or would google see that as duplicate content and penalize me

Ideally I would like worldwide customers to find me via the .com address, and uk customers via the .co.uk.

I hope all that made sense!

Automated backup tools for sites on shared web hosts

We have several websites at multiple hosting companies (all shared hosts - some using cPanel, others using Plesk) and we're looking for a way to backup all files and MySQL databases for each site. We'd like nightly or more frequent backups and prefer that it is completely automated. My current plan is to store all the backups on an Amazon S3 account or similar. But I'm not sure what tools are out there to accomplish the collection and transfer of the files and databases. It would be nice if there's a way to do everything through a centralized management system, but that's not an absolute requirement.

Good, cheap register

Does anyone have a good place to register domains that's inexpensive, trustworthy and includes the basics, domain forwarding, DNS management, etc. The company I've been using to register domains, mydiscountdomains.com, more than tripled their prices at the beginning of the year. Most of my clients are on very small and tight budgets, so I need to switch. They did have domain/email forwarding, DNS management and renew/purchase for $8.50 per year. To get all the same now would be $25 per year.

domain name not in use and registered with a company whose website is non existant

hello, i'm interested in a .co.uk name which is registered until late 2008. the name is not in use. whois gives the registrar's name as the registrant as well which may mean, i suppose, the registrar company owns it themselves or the owner has kept their name/details private. this is the web address of the registrar: http://www.commerce.uk.net which isn't looking so healthy. so the company appears to be no longer in existance possibly, at least their website isn't. any suggestions for what may be happening and how i might go about getting the name without spending loads i might just call a number i've found on the internet for Commerce Internet Ltd (the registrar's company name) (although the page with the number on is about 6 years old so may not be correct anymore) and see what happens / see what they say, but just thought i'd ask on here first in case anyone has any suggestions/knows a bit more

i bought a used domain name - is it banned by google?

i bought a domain name which was active in the past and i don't know the reason but was dropped and not registered again by the owner. I suspect that the previous owner used problematic methods to promote his web site in the search engines and maybe was banned by google (and thus not indexed or crawled). how can i know that for sure if this is the case, is this for life or after a while google give this domain one more chance and try to crawl the web site again

info domains in my registerfly account that I don't remember registering

I have over 50 domains registered through Registerfly. Suddenly, I have 3 .info domains listed that I don't remember registering. I really don't have an interest in .info domains. The three domains happen to be ones that I have both the .com and .net registered, and now suddenly it shows .info as well. Now here's the tricky part - all 3 of those .info domains expire on Sept 24. I checked all of my transaction reports, including the order history in the Registerfly reports, and there is no order record for those domains. I know that they have been promoting low cost .info domains lately, as a lot of registrars have, so I'm assuming there hasn't been much interest. Now this is going to sound nutty, but do you think this could be a ploy to get me to register (renew) .info domains that I would not have normally have ordered

Is it me or them?

I'm by no means an expert on hosting -- design and coding are my things. So forgive me if I ask a Hosting for Dummies question. I'm working with a Host Not to Be Named to host my client's pages. I've gone through other hosts and the process is dirt-simple: pay for the hosting, get the domain transferred, get the FTP login info, upload the pages via Filezilla, and Bob's your uncle. Never used this host before, but I wanted more bandwidth etc than the hosts I've worked with in the past for this client. This host won't give me or the client the FTP login/password info. Instead, it says I either need to pay some monthly fee for cPanel access or install some incredibly complex Linux-based software to handle the issue. I don't need an explanation as to why cPanel access is a good thing. My question is simple: is it a necessary thing to merely upload files etc If not, as it has never been with a number of other hosts before now, then why am I getting all this reluctance over the FTP login/pw info
