Why dup.as ?
[Christophe Dupas] A few years ago I wanted to buy the domain name "dupas.com", in order to offer e-mail addresses to every member of my family. Unfortunately when I had time to do this, I discovered that domain name was already reserved, by a company which offer a lifetime free e-mail service. So I subscribed (with all my family) and started to use the service.
Unfortunately the 1st of October, 2002 the company inform me that they will charge me 19,95$ a year if I want to continue using my e-mail address. My wife, son and parents were regularily using this service. I would cost me 100$ a year !
So I started to surf on the Net looking for a smart domain name for my family. I easily found "dup.as". 45$ a year plus 15$ of hosting, that makes 60$. Moreover, I could have a website and as much e-mail addresses as I want.
Since it would be a pity to keep that domain name for only 5 people, I decided to offer to every Dupas to use dup.as as an e-mail and URL forwarding service. Since My name is Dupas, I doubt that one day this service is over !
