      AveoClub.net is getting a new name: AveoForum.com

      We've been looking for a .com domain name for a while now - .com is preferred for a bunch of reasons when building/growing a web site.

      Our first choice was obvious: AveoClub.com!

      Unfortunately, it's already registered, even though it's never been used for a site. I contacted the owner of the domain and guess how much $$$ the guy wants to sell it? 2 grand!! Um... nuh uh.

      So we considered a bunch of other names - of course most of the good Aveo related domains are already registered, but not being used. But today we got one from an actual Aveo owner who registered it but never got a site going:

      AveoForum.com

      NOTE: we're not giving up on AveoClub.net. This domain name will always continue to work. ALL bookmarks and links to aveoclub.net/whatever will continue to go to the correct page(s) after we make the switch.

      Anyway, just wanted to give you all a heads-up. We'll probably do the changeover within a week or so. (You don't have to do anything.)

      Ha! $2k is more than most of the cars I've bought!

      In fact it is more than the Aveo sedan Tim bought. Hmmm domain name or car... domain name ... or car...

      When he told me that price, I just thanked him for his time and wished him luck.

      I think the new name is a much better choice and it will attract a wider audience through search engine hits.

      This is a very well run list and I'm happy to participate and be a part of it.

      Awesome!

      And I agree, aveo forum should give you more hits in search engines.

      So the new site will still look the same and have a cool "AVEO club" header, right?

      Site design will stay the same. Though we'll replace the word "club" with "forum" in the header image.

      hmm... kind of sucks... I kind of like the Aveo Club name.. Is there a chance to have aveoforum.com but the header still says aveo club? It is a club after all.. But you guys do what you gotta do.
