Companies have one or more 'dot com' addresses to identify themselves; the need for individuals to have them as well can't be far behind.

Our site is targeted towards the family and friends of very young children, but it can be used to purchase a birthday gift, graduation gift, Valentine's Day gift, or even a Grandparents' Day gift.
