Metal Storm - Now Also On .EU


The staff of Metal Storm are happy to announce that our website is now also reachable on the .eu domain. We hope that this move will allow us to be treated as a more international metal magazine and open doors for us in terms of co-operation with labels and festivals. We are proud of the Estonian origins of this webzine but we feel that having another domain will make it easier to highlight our international nature. Don't worry, the .ee address will still work and our logo isn't going to change.

From now on, besides the primary http://www.metalstorm.ee address, we can also be reached on http://www.metalstorm.eu. Staff members can also now be reached on their corresponding .eu email addresses.

What the hell is the difference?



Read the comments left by Jupitreas and Promo.

It just makes more sense to get a more international extension than the Estonian .ee one.

For example at gigs here in the Netherlands it happened quite a few times that people found out I am staff here at Metalstorm and are surprised that my Dutch is so brilliant for an Estonian, so every time I have to explain that I am Dutch, that Metal Storm started in Estonia but is now an international website etc. etc.

Yes indeed, a step further, though a quite small one.

There goes the exotic flavour of metal storm.

Is it asked too much from the WTFers to once poke their noses over a map ? Metal Storm used to be a great ambassador for Estonia. Every halfway intact mind would sooner or later try to lift the secret of the .ee domain.

Well, good luck with the new domain anyway.

The .ee domain will remain the main one for the time being, everything is served from it. .eu is simply a forwarder to .ee. No more, no less.

Fuck that, it's so much easier to type .ee than .eu (even though I have the site bookmarked).

But yeah, nice to see the site going places.

It's not a question of staying with the .ee or not. Obviously we love the .ee thing, hell I even love it when talking with people at festivals or concerts who are looking like there's an internal bug freezing their minds when you say "metalstorm dot ee". Then, a few seconds after the reboot, they have this questionning look, meaning "err... what? you said what? dot what?"
".ee" you say again, adding that this is for "Estonia", and then you're in for another ten minutes explaining them that Estonia is not a poor unknown and abandoned country, that it is located where it is and that "where it is" means north of Latvia and Lithuania, south of finland, west of Russia.

After that, I always feel proud for I taught those people something amazing about the world they live in and that they had never suspected before. Sometimes I go as far as stating that Estonia is a far better country than theirs (and mine).
Yet it also happened that they just turn away thinking I'm pulling their leg after I said that .ee was for Estonia (truth!)


No really, the main reason of that is to secure the .eu address.

Sorry to come across a little (or a lot) blunt) but can't you people read?

One can still type www.metalstorm.EE if one wants. We OWN BOTH domains.

*sigh* Yes, I did notice you own BOTH domains. Was just trying to sarcastically imply that I'd still be using .ee due to habit and convenience, as I'm sure many previous users would as well.
