From the Minus blog:
Since our launch nearly a year ago, our focus has been on simplicity and minimalism – we just don’t believe sharing files online needs to be complicated, and our many thousands of loyal users seem to agree (thank you!). This focus on minimalism was the spirit behind our choice of domain name, Min.us.
But as we have grown, it’s become apparent that some of our users find the .us top level domain to be confusing. As we brand our service with the Minus name, we want to be as accessible as possible to all users and make it easy for users to find us.
So today we are excited to announce that we have acquired the Minus.com name, and we will use that as our primary domain name going forward.
Given that Minus is used widely to share content on Twitter and social media sites – where every character counts – we are going to continue to use Min.us for links to shortlinks for user galleries, files, photos and more. All existing links will work and redirect properly, but Minus.com will now serve as the default domain. If Min.us is your preferred URL, nothing will change for you.
Today’s change marks the beginning of some exciting developments for Minus. There’s a lot of work to be done, but we’re excited to start this new chapter with all of our users. Thank you for your continued loyalty, and please, continue to give us your feedback. We rely on it to make our service better.
