THE MASTER OF YOUR DOMAIN
Be prepared: you may have to go to the ends of the World (Wide Web) to achieve it.
All Iwanted to (O) ..do .. was to get an Internet domain name of my (16) …own.. – the part of an e-mail address to the right of the ‘@’ and the part of the World Wide Web address that typically follows www. The (17) …problem.. is that Lewis is a (18) …very.. common name and Lewis.com (19) …was.. already taken.
So, (20) …like..millions of Internet users before me, I (21) …began / started.. looking elsewhere (22) …for… a domain I could call home – the Internet equivalent of 40 acres, where I (23) …could.. grow electronic mail, raise a small herd of web pages and maybe someday open a little electronic collage industry of my own.
It (24) …used.. to be technically difficult for average computer users to get (25) …their.. own personal Internet domain names. (26) …But.. if you could figure out (27) …how.. to do it, registering a domain name was free and good names were plentiful.
No (28) …more / longer..! The Internet is now the world’s fastest growing economy, and the commercialisation of the Internet (29) …has.. created a frenzy for domain names. An Internet domain name is (30) …not.. just an equivalent of a telephone number and mailing address but also a status symbol.
