Because ...

by Bizzo In reply to http://techrepublic.com.c ...

www.com.com is owned by CNET
and Techrepublic is a subdomain of com.com, hence techrepublic.com.com

Similarly, www.microsoft.com is owned by microsoft and "update" is a subdomain, update.microsoft.com

Here we go again.

This question has been asked and answered many times.

There are two COM's in the name because TechRepublic is a subdomain of their parent company.

Why does it matter?

by jdclyde In reply to http://techrepublic.com.c ...

This question comes up, and the biggest question is why do you care if there is a second com or not?

A few years back

by boxfiddler Moderator In reply to Why does it matter?

I had a couple of semesters of Algebra with a professor who is notoriously short-tempered with students who don't apply themselves to learning. One day, there was nothing but yellow chalk in the classroom. No sooner did he start using the blackboard, than a student just HAD to ask "Why is the chalk yellow?"
He exploded, asking in return "WTF difference does it make what f*cking color the chalk is?" I nearly fell out of my seat trying not to laugh out loud. Spent the rest of the semester in a near giggle in his classroom, too.
One of my favorite profs, btw.
