Beginner to Expert trusted computing content on PC Hardware, CPU, Video Cards and Overclocking :: TweakTown
TweakTown is dedicated to my late grandfather Val Grimm, who first introduced me to computers some 15 years or more ago. The website was officially named and launched to the public on the 15th of September 1999. Originally, TweakTown was known as "Wilmot's Website", which basically serviced as my personal homepage with information about me and links to other websites. Almost seven years on, TweakTown has transformed into one of the biggest and most successful tech media websites in the world, being accessed by many thousands of readers every day with a total nearing 100,000,000 unique visitors. We have been featured in many mainstream press magazines, news papers and websites and even on CNN and TechTV.
How did it all start? I had a pretty good understanding of getting better performance out of 56k dial-up modems. So, quite apprehensively I decided to publish a modem "tweaking" (fine tuning or optimizing) guide for friends that were crawling along on slow 56k dialup Internet connections, which needed that little extra speed boost in online games. In the way the Internet works best, the word quickly got around about how well the Modem Tweaking Guide improved performance and Wilmot's Website eventually got bigger and bigger to the point where it eventually adapted into a fully functional tech website, with talented writers and contributors dotted all over the world. Now, we post many new articles, reviews and guides on a regular basis.
Wilmot's Website was hosted by my local ISP of the time. They eventually kicked me off their server for exceeding bandwidth limits. At this stage, I had also released a couple more tweaking guides for my growing audience. This is when I thought about starting up an optimization page and getting rid of other personal stuff, which probably wasn't of much interest to the general public. During the 15th of September 1999, I suddenly came up with the idea of renaming Wilmot's Website to "TweakTown" - please do not ask why, as to date I cannot remember how I came up with the name and why. Strange name but it has worked out very well so far.

Capture visitors who type the wrong name
It can make a lot of sense to redirect a domain to an existing web page. For example, many people are likely to type wikipedia.com when they are really looking for wikipedia.org. Creating a redirect from wikipedia.com to wikipedia.org helps these people get to the site they want.
