@Internet Magazine (Pakistan) Launched Official Website ‘on .info extension’

@internet Website

@Internet is an Internet & technology related magazine in Pakistan which was launched in July 1999. @Internet has been successful because of it’s uniqueness and the respect it gives to it’s readers.

Recently, @Internet launched it’s website AtInternet.info which is still in its initial stages. I wish @Internet best of luck but being a loyal customer, I am not pleased with the domain extension. I do understand that its an information related magazine but still it was not supposed to be on .info extension. If @Internet is not satisfied with .com extension then go for .tm (Trade Mark)  extension. I don’t think that a Magazine that goes in almost every corner of the country is ‘price conscious’.

Now coming over to the design of website, the website is designed beautifuly and is cozy. I like the 3D guy playing around but agian, the Character is very much common on internet so @Internet should try some new Character instead. All 3D work is done professionally and awesome speacilly the pictures on home page for E-Guide, Reviews, Opinions, and Regular.

I again wish @Internet best of luck for their future endeavors.
