That's the theory...
Certainly would be easy. I don't know your set up, but it may be worth starting a new company, and selling off everything from the existing company you want to keep to the new company - and what ever is left (hopefully something someone may want) - and then sell your old company. Make a bit of money - and reduce your potential CGT bill for the future. Of course raise some more cash now too.

I have thought of renaming Platinax Internet Ltd to something that would reflect the domain name InternetBusiness.co.uk - but so far, nothing available.

Thanks for the heads up - the first suggestion sounds good.

The only thing is, I've realised I'll have to shift my banking and everything to accomodate a new company ID.

Will keep options open.

Just curious...

I don't really see the need to change the name of the Company. Platinax is indeed a curious name, but quite distinctive... Just my 2p's worth

I have to admit though I liked Platinax InternetBusiness does sound better and is pretty direct to what it is, in the long run it should do well. However your page rank is going to suffer due to the change and then you have to rebuild all those links lost through Platinax....have fun.

Shouldn't be too much of a loss - just 301'ed Platinax to here.

By the way, sincerely sorry for the lack of changes - been a huge backlog of work to get on top of after a couple of speaking engagements - so now finally getting on top of everything.

Hey Brian

Just saw all the front-end change today (maybe yesterday but didn't look).

Looks great! Very clean, and very up there with anything else around. Also much more news & information orientated where people can easily see a lot more... before just a little too 'blog' for a full internet business source. (all things you probably know)

Best of luck and I look forward to seeing what the future brings!

Got to admit, feel the design being implemented looks a little outdated. Still, I like the structure, but working a little more with it.

I think it is looking good, its clean, simple and professional. tbh I think all the UK business forums ive visited are fairly bland in design, and content is king (of course).

I didnt realise you had paid that amount for the domain Brian until I was on domainprices.co.uk, its good to know you are in it for the long-term so being a member is worthwhile as the site will develop, not go down hill.
