+ 0 Votes It just does... cmiller5400 6 years ago I think that there was a discussion about this before (I can't find it or remember why it does). But you are not seeing things. It does have .com.com in it. + 0 Votes com.com was long registered by cnet seanferd 5 years ago along with many obvious choices such as news.com, download.com, etc. Clever of them, way back. Com.com is just where TR ended up after being acquired by cnet. + 0 Votes An answer Joe_R 6 years ago http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-6230-0.html?forumID=8&threadID=185526&messageID=1896315 http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11189-0.html?forumID=3&threadID=134309&messageID=1508041 + 0 Votes Because that's the way they registered the domain name. ThumbsUp2 6 years ago The people who created the site registered it that way, I suppose, just to be different. Maybe there was already a www.techrepublic.com registered and they didn't want to buy it. Maybe they didn't want to use www.techrepublic.net or .info or .biz or anything else. It just is what it is and we all accept it that way. + 0 Votes Because Cnet is com.com seanferd 6 years ago or rather, it is one of the domain names owned by Cnet and Cnet acquired Zdnet and TR. It is just one of those basic words that get typed into address bars (see other domains owned by Cnet, they were smart) that will resolve to a website. I don't have any guesses as to why TR is the only site that seems to show the com.com as the domain, when if you just enter com.com in the address bar, it goes to Cnet. There is probably some arcane reason, like, that is just how it got added to the Cnet network. + 0 Votes Don't recall all the history Tig2 6 years ago But do know that the site has gone through various changes since Gartner owned it. And the former ownership may have driven the .com.com domain structure.
