Earlier this week, Vice Presidential runner-up and Facebook celebrity Sarah Palin launched the Sarah Palin Channel, an online television channel that will "go beyond the sound bites and the media’s politically correct filter to get to the truth," according to Palin. The truth will run you $9.95 a month.
The site features a video, various blog entries, 'Sally's Word of the Day', a Quote of the Day, and Image of the Day, a National Debt counter, and a countdown to President Obama's last day in office. I assume that when the latter hits zero, so will the debt counter. I think that's how it works.
As you would expect, the Sarah Palin Channel resides at sarahpalinchannel.com.
But when you're starting out a new online venture, you have to cover all your domain bases. That's why www.fb.com, www.thefacebook.com, and even www.facbook.com all redirect to Facebook. You have to assume there will be some domain confusion at some point.
But Palin failed to snatch up arguably the most logical secondary domain name for her site – THEsarahpalinchannel.com.
It's ok. Someone else did.
Currently, thesarahpalinchannel.com features a photo of Palin, saying it's the "only Sarah Palin Channel on the internet with a definite article in the address!"
