Two great domain names, one lousy website

The operators of VEGAS.com figure they'll be getting about 800,000 new customers as a result of acquiring the rights to use the lasvegas.com domain name.

Howard Lefkowitz, president of VEGAS.com, announced on Friday that the company had signed a long-term, exclusive license agreement with Stephens Media Intellectual Property LLC for the name.

VEGAS.com is owned by the Greenspun family, which owns the Las Vegas Sun. Stephens Media Intellectual Property is a subsidiary of the Arkansas-based company that owns the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

With the new deal, VEGAS.com will operate both the VEGAS.com and lasvegas.com travel sites. Both sites will remain separate, with different looks, logos and branding. The sites will be hosted on VEGAS.com servers and will contain content and products created by VEGAS.com.

Each site will have separate phone numbers for customers and will be answered by the VEGAS.com contact center with the appropriate Web site name.
