comment Should I set up standard email accounts? What are they?
Yeah, that was the way I used to handle it too, a catchall for the domain. It ended with thousands of emails a day with no value, as the spammers sent mails to every name in the dictionary: aaron@example.com, alex@example.com, etc, etc, etc. There are a lot of possible email addresses as it turns out.

comment How can I get a history of DNS registration information?
Yeah, that's the only site I know of that does anything like this. It's a habit for me to do lookups like whois.sc/example.com which redirects to whois.domaintools.com/example.com ... I can't even remember how I learned about the site, but it's the only one I know of. Love the question about non-ascii domains. What would be an example of one? Try it out with the pattern http://whois.sc/*DOMAIN* and see if it works!

comment Should I encourage clients to update content for SEO reasons?
I particularly like this advice: "The other thing you can do is develop a relationship with a few freelance writers, refer them to companies who just can't seem to handle self publishing beyond the occasional press release." I think a good writer can help draw out good content. I think you're right, everybody has something relevant to a current site visitor. The trick is to draw it out and put it up.

comment Bandwidth heavy site… use co-location?
Ah, I presumed the bandwidth heavy pieces would be media you could put on a CDN, sounds like I presumed wrong. Though if you have dynamic chunks that get processed in a predictable way (a finite set of possible data "chunks") you could still put all that into a CDN. I'll stop trying to guess about your app now. :-)
