I missed my opportunity to register benmoore.org back when domain name registration was expensive (we had Network Solutions' monopoly to thank for that). Now that they are cheap (easily less than $10 per year), everybody ought to have their own.
Anyway, back to the story. When the .biz top-level domain (TLD) became available, I registered benmoore.biz. I've never really put up a web site by that name but rather used it to create a set of third-level domains (or hostnames). I use these as "shortcuts" either for my own use or to share with others. I use Active-Domain's free capabilities to do this.
Here's a list of my current third-level domain names and what they point to.
