Alarm Media

Alarm Media presents a selection of the key websites created and owned by the divisions of Click as a Flash studio. The primary focus is on entertainment, and this is based around the Loungecast and Tortoise Islands portfolio of websites. The business focus is on domain names and there are various other projects in development.

1 Entertainment

Our network of fictional entertainment sites is centred around the Tortoise Islands, the secretive country and near neighbor of Galapagos. On Fear Island, the southern island, dinosaurs continue to roam in what is the most dangerous place on earth. The mysterious and secretive islands are the home of adventure and intrigue.

News from the Tortoise Islands and around the globe is covered by Loungecast — often cited as the world's most reliable and influential news source. Famous as the number one newspaper in the Tortoise Islands, Loungecast publishes news, humor and adventure.

The World Chaos Disorganization has it's headquarters in the Tortoise Islands. The WCD needs no introduction; it's fame, influence and reputation are respected around the world. It provides strategic research, development, hi-tech manufacture and advice for governments and companies.

The world's largest robot — Kingpin Tin is believed by international security agencies to have a base located in the Tortoise Islands. The Kingpin, proclaimed Ruler of Robots, is the world's largest and most influential robot.

The world's largest robot city, Machineville, is located on the northern shore of Fear Island, and Kingpin Tin is suspected of involvement in the city's administration and foreign policy. The legendary City of Robots, a place without humans, is the fastest growing city in the world.

The Mental Institute for Strategic Studies is renowned for its strategic advice which it provides to governments and corporations worldwide. It is the world's premier research and consulting group, advising world policy makers and top corporations.

Very little is known by security agencies about the World Stealth Organization, the most top secret organization of them all.

Destrucula. The world's most dangerous and wanted criminal controls a colossal and ruthless global empire of evil and crime.

The ever deepening mystery of who Godzorro the "Masked Monster" really is, infamous resident of Fear Island.

Since the legendary crash of a "flying disk" in Rosmill, Tortoise Islands in 1957, the world has been captivated by this phenomenon. The UFO Files have devoted decades of research at great personal cost in an endeavor to find the truth.

On Fear Island stands a historical stone arch which marks the dangerous crossroads between civilization today and pre-historic times. Turtle Portal is the only known gateway to the last remaining land of dinosaurs.

2 Domain Names

Domain name investment is another important studio focus, and our holdings are represented by Deal Names and Tech Brand.

Deal Names is a portfolio of hundreds of fine business domain names available for sale. If you wish to buy domain names for your business or startup, this exceptional collection of names is worth considering. All our inventory is listed at fixed prices for fast purchase with secure escrow.

Short, memorable and brandable domains are highly sought-after. Our sister company Tech Brand is a fine folio of catchy, rare and brandable names available for rapid purchase. These domain holdings are all exclusively "dotcom" name extensions — and are exceptionally rare.

In late 2013 up to 1,400 new general "top level domain names" are set to begin release. Joining the current generic and country code domains are many many new domain extensions — plus two major new categories. Hundreds of the world's largest corporations are set to launch new domain strings based on their trademarks. And more than 60 cities and regions are planning on launching new domains based on their names. Domain Name Explosion presents an overview of the program.

Around 680 of the world's major corporations, from Google to General Electric, are going to launch their own brand domains as part of the extended new top level domain program. These new domain extensions are about to create an exciting and entirely new category of internet domains. There will be websites called and These revolutionary dot brands are covered at The Brand Domains.

The process for allocating the generic top level domains (gTLDs) is very seriously flawed. An aspect of this — the potential for the rise of powerful super monopolies on the web — is covered by Super Monopolies... There is no specific mandatory prohibition by ICANN, the internet regulatory authority, that companies cannot exclusively own common dictionary word extensions such as .news, .shop, .game and countless more. And many intend to do just that. Protest is growing against these anti-competitive closed gTLDs.
