An organization called Comlinks unveiled a safe house on Sunday May 1, 2005 that will offer emergency shelter. In the past, women were forced to drive fifty miles. As Brian Mann reports, advocates say the home will offer families a chance to start over away from the threat of abuse and intimidation.

Alumnus makes gift of valuable domain names to Prescott College
by Ann Haver-Allen

Rob Grant '75 of Rob Grant & Associates in Saranac Lake, recently made a

rob grant pres adirondacks.comRob Grant,

"I am especially excited about the potential for domains like www.
.com that would allow Prescott College the opportunity to create a major portal dedicated to environmental concerns and showcase the many achievements of Prescott's faculty and alumni.
Rob Grant '75
significant gift to Prescott College in the form of educational domain names designed to drive Internet traffic to the Prescott College Web site.

Grant worked closely with the college exploring and developing a unique online network of educational Websites through his Internet consulting firm Adirondacks.
com. Grant said his company worked with Rachel Yoder, director of alumni relations, and Kevin Beyer, Web administrator, to make the domain transfers possible.

"These education domains represent a wonderful opportunity for Prescott College to build-out and create a unique network of dedicated 'vertical' sites that can showcase the College's unique academic programs online and attract potential applicants to the college admissions process," Grant said.

"This is especially important in today's highly competitive environment where private colleges are struggling to attract students and maintain enrollment. Very few, if any, private colleges have such a powerful network or online admissions platform."

A recent survey conducted by Peterson's Educational Guide found that more than 35 percent of all U.S. students used the Internet to search for schools and apply online.

The domains Grant donated to Prescott College include:

This means that a potential student anywhere in the world who types one of these URLs will be routed to the Prescott College Web site.

Grant said that by branding these various education domains and building sites around them, Prescott College will benefit from search engine traffic and from intuitive searches.
"A student looking for will default directly into one of Prescott College's education sites," Grant said. "This is why major companies like Peterson's Guide own important domains like
These domains generate highly qualified leads to the company's educational directory. In turn, schools pay Peterson's significant dollars to advertise on their site and gain exposure tothese potential applicants." Grant said a domain essentially has two components of value: a brand value and an intuitive value. "The more descriptive and memorable a domain is, the higher its brand value is in the eyes of the consumer," he said.
"This is especially true if a domain translates well across a variety of media including print, TV, radio, the Internet, etc. Generally, the more highly targeted a domain is, the more valuable its brand appeal is. A good example of this is a premier domain like" Intuitive value is created when a computer user types in a specific name or topic followed by the dot-com extension. "These domains represent the most valuable assets in the industry and command staggering prices," Grant said. "Recent sales of significant domains include for $7 million, for $3 million, and for $2.2 million."
The gifted domains to Prescott College are valued at $60,000. Grant's company has been acquiring domain properties since 1996. The process, he said, is complicated and depends on a variety of factors. "I have many fond memories of Prescott and the many wonderful and highly unusual friends I made during the late 70s," he said. "My hope is to help the college as much as I can. The Internet is a good first step."
