Fuel Radio has changed from fuelradio.fm to fuelradio.net. This change is effective immediately. fuelradio.fm will redirect to fuelradio.net and then will be terminated by November 2017. Please change your bookmarks.

The FuelRadio.fm name will be going away? Any particular reason?

It makes more sense to me to be known as FuelRadio.net than FuelRadio.fm since we're not a terrestrial station anyway, but of course, we've already built up the "dot fm" brandname for a while. I'm just curious if there are other factors.

I see the logo has been updated to begin the transition. Can you give us the approximate date that the FuelRadio.fm domain name will be dropped? Obviously all the t-shirts, flyers, and links around the internet will stop working after that, so we'll need to make sure we're getting the new domain name (and new email addresses) out there... probably along side the original links since the old domain name will probably have a higher rank on the search engines. Google and any other search engines where the domain has been registered should be updated...

Yeah, this is NOT something I wanted to do but the owners of the .fm as well as some other specialty domains has tripled and quadrupled their prices without any notice. This is just not a fee that I see benefitting us. We are paid through until next year and then we will cancel our .fm domain. This should give us plenty of time to get everything changed over. I am truly sorry for any inconveniences but this is a necessary change. Thanks for all of your love and support.. we really do have the best listeners!!!

No T-shirts left so no impact there.  No flyers or business cards made up either, so still ok there. 

I will have to remove the big window decal on my car and throw out my old t-shirts, but that's ok gives me a reason to make new ones. :0

Yeah.. I plan on getting some business cards made up and we will have to collaborate on some T-Shirts for both Fuel and D2S...
