    Question 'ABestWeb' - huh?
    So the A in abestweb stands for Affiliates?
    So then why 'bestweb'? That doesn't really make sense does it?

    Please enlighten me someone, what's the meaning of abestweb?

    Affiliates Benefit, Enlighten, Share Tips, Warns Everybody of BHOs! Ha!

    At least, that's my guess at what it stands for.
    -Don't criticize anyone til you've walked a mile in their shoes. Then when you do criticize them, you'll be a mile away and have their shoes.

    Does google, yahoo, skype, monster, ebay, etc make sense? It's always entertaining to be in an industry where the name is frequently total nonsense.

    meadowmufn's acronym is clever.

    I always thought Haiko added "a" to get first ranking in alphabetical order, though I never asked him. The name clearly relates to the internet but the syntax doesn't quite make sense.

    There is something about the name that is very catchy...

    "meadowmufn's acronym is clever."

    Possible future contest

    I like the domain because it's easy to remember/brand.

    How did I know that was going to happen?

    You already have my submission. I'll just sit back and watch everyone else's cleverness. Have at it, folks!

    I'll throw in another $50 to make it $100, but before we do, meadowmuffin has to get $50 just for the creativity I'll paypal it to you right now.

    So let the contest begin ... http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?p=642874

    BTW, yes Brook, the rationale for the A was for a better alphabetical directory listing

    Bob,

    That's why I have domain that one day I might sell to , if they make me the right offer. But I would not take nothing less than $10 million US Dollars for it!

    But just for asking if "Does google, yahoo, skype, monster, ebay, etc make sense?", you're one more name to add to my list of when I seel my domain, this people will get a big "thank you" price.

    Not traying to sell the Moon,
    not even the Brooklyn Bridge,
    nothing to do with a broom,
    just something to make me rich.


    Yes, I am for 2007!

    Little Known Fact:
    Haiko was a member of a neighborhood gang made up of hackers. They lived in Lincoln, Illinois on Abe Street. They called themselves the Abe St Web and had leather jackets with spider webs on them.

    So I guess the answer to my original question is "Abestweb stands for nothing...yet"
