Is it normal to use *techs.info instead of *tech.info in a domain name? Is this correct, or can I not reduce "technology" to "techs"?

    To clarify, you are asking if the short-form of technology is tech or techs?

  • Yes. Cause the domain with **tech.info already in used and i think to use techs.info (it's very hard to find good name for your site).

Technology in its singular form cannot be abbreviated to techs. But if there are clearly more than one technology in use, techs would certainly be OK. Yet most would use or understand techs as an abbreviation of technicians.

An alternative would be to abbreviate technology with tex.

  • +1, might it be the origin of TeX?

    @Eldros: according to Wikipedia, "the name of TeX derives from the Greek: τέχνη (skill, art, technique); for this reason, TeX's creator Donald Knuth promotes a pronunciation of /ˈtɛx/ (tekh) (that is, with a voiceless velar fricative as in Modern Greek, similar to the last sound of the German word 'Bach', the Spanish 'j' sound, or as ch in loch)."
