Why do this? Are you nuts?
Yes and no.
BlackDog started out with one domain name and a few very small pages early in 1997.
It grew, and grew and grew! Especially the holiday pages. And got kicked off its cheap server. So, the second domain name
came into being to take care of the seasonal holiday traffic, and each domain was housed on a different, cheap server. It grew, and grew and grew again!
To over 10,000 web pages. More people came to visit, and BlackDog got kicked off both cheap servers.
Finally, BlackDog got its own server and everything got combined. No more cheap servers, but no more worries about having to
move the site every Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
In the meantime, while the site was growing, people linked to BlackDog, hundreds of them! Plus, search
engines found the pages and listed them. If the pages are moved, people think the site is gone. So,
at least for the time being, the two domain names remain.
