We made a last minute decision to take a trip to Las Vegas, and we landed last night. My wife has never been to Vegas before, and I have never been for anything other than a bachelor party. It’s been a long couple of weeks (new site, dissertation defense, marathon…etc), and we needed a short respite.
When I was looking into booking options, I decided to support the companies who operate on generic domain names. We got a great deal on a round trip JetBlue flight and hotel room packaged together at Vegas.com. They offer a ton of deals at just about every airline and hotel in the area. I saved a couple hundred dollars by not booking on the airline website and Hotels.com… not bad.
I then did some research on restaurants in Las Vegas. As you might expect, LasVegasRestaurants.com ranks at the top of Google for a search of Las Vegas Restaurants. The website had photos, menus, and reviews of many restaurants in Las Vegas, and I was even able to make a dinner reservation right on the site. An hour later, the reservation was confirmed, and we are good to go.
Just like I prefer to shop at family-owned stores, I also like to patronize websites that understand domain names when all else is equal. Gotta respect the domain intelligence.
