When the domain fusionculinaire.com lapsed a couple of years back, I attempted to re-purchase it for a longer period of time. However, 1and1, the domain registrar I tried out for 1 year, seized control of the domain name and posted it for resale for $799.00 US. They apparently felt that it was prime internet real-estate! Anywho, I folded both my food blog and my book blog into a sub-domain of the personal site, which is how it stood for over a year. Last December, I moved to a new registrar and was able to re-activate amazoniabookshoppe.com for free for a year, however, I had to settle on a new domain name for my food blog - hence, fusion-culinaire.com. My Fusion Culinaire food blog, far exceeds any other site I've ever maintained. Before the original domain lapsed, my traffic was approaching 10k a month, which is a threshold into the rank of "biggies".
As the numbers are beginning to rise once again, I vow to stay on top of this domain name business and prevent a lapse from ever happening again. Fortunately, the competition between registrars is causing a price war, so the prices are extremely affordable. We'll see how long that lasts!!
