My Domain Name was Anything but Stress-Free
Today, I was trying to load a domain name entitled “StressFreeIOT.com” onto my WordPress site. For whatever reason the “addon domain” process was telling me that “StressFreeIOT.com” is not a valid domain name. I double checked for trademark violations and found none. After getting the same error message for the third or fourth time, I decided to call my hosing service.
Hosting Tech Support Zeros in on the Problem
While I was on the phone with hosting tech support, I once again tried to add “StressFreeIOT.com” as an add-on domain and this time I was successful. The support person told me his best guess was that I had a space at the end of the domain name which triggered the error message.

By the way, the domain name entitled “StressFreeIOT.com” is a shortened version for stress-free “Internet of Things.” Think about this for a moment. I was working on a domain name with the words “stress-free” in it and in trying to add this domain name to my site, ironically, I was experiencing anything but a lack of stress.
