Domain Name suggestion: Rangefinder.One

Domain name inspired by the famous Rangefinder Cameras:

A rangefinder camera is a camera fitted with a rangefinder, typically a split-image rangefinder: a range-finding focusing mechanism allowing the photographer to measure the subject distance and take photographs that are in sharp focus. Most varieties of rangefinder show two images of the same subject, one of which moves when a calibrated wheel is turned; when the two images coincide and fuse into one, the distance can be read off the wheel. Older, non-coupled rangefinder cameras display the focusing distance and require the photographer to transfer the value to the lens focus ring; cameras without built-in rangefinders could have an external rangefinder fitted into the accessory shoe. Earlier cameras of this type had separate viewfinder and rangefinder windows; later the rangefinder was incorporated into the viewfinder. More modern designs have rangefinders coupled to the focusing mechanism so that the lens is focused correctly when the rangefinder images fuse; compare with the focusing screen in non-autofocus SLRs.

Almost all digital cameras, and most later film cameras, measure distance using electroacoustic or electronic means and focus automatically (autofocus); however, it is not customary to speak of this functionality as a rangefinder.

Golf Rangefinder Technology

Using one of your eyes as you would when looking through any type of scope, a golf rangefinder magnifies the target and shoots a laser beam at it in order to determine the exact distance. The target in question that you would use a rangefinder to determine the distance to can be anything.

Carrying a rangefinder helps you eliminate uncertainty about distances when shooting rifles or bows. When you know the actual distance to the target, you’ll have more confidence in taking the shot or you’ll know that it’s too far away to risk it.

Internet Presence: Register your own domain

We hope you will find this mini series interesting and helpful. We will publish a few blog posts that hopefully may help you to get your business online in a way where you are your own ‘master of the universe’ in regards your website hosting and management.

Have you ever thought about setting up your own website? You may have started with a free website under a generic domain name, for example, yourname.somedomain.com, yourname.Wordpress.com etc.. You always depend on the company offering you some cheesy subdomain that probably injects ads into your website.

There is a good solution for this. If you register your own domain name and have a hosting company taking care of the updates and security patches, you have an online presence with your very own name, very own e-mail address and can manage it as you want. No third party ads and tons of options, template designs tailored to your business.

We started to have our own ‘cheesy’ website over 2 decades ago and thought: there must be a better way. We started to register our own domain names in 1998, found some good hosting companies and published our own content using Microsoft Frontpage, JavaScript, Perl scripts and later on PHP scripts. As work became busier and busier, we stopped doing our own coding and started to use WordPress. Easy to setup, easy to install plugins for all kind of needs and adjust the templates to fit our own style and business needs. More about this coming up soon to this blog.

As a first step, think about a catchy name you want to use. We have registered this domain name, as well as Blackandwhite.li, Monochrome.one and one catchy name related to photography f-s.top – There are many more options available than just Top Domain Names .com, .net, .org etc.
