As if choosing a name wasn't difficult enough, now parents have to select the perfect domain name, too.Sequoia Hospital in Redwood City, Calif., has teamed with NameZero.com to offer "tech-savvy" parents the option to give newborns an e-mail address and personalized domain name as part of a "Welcome to the World" package. The package also includes "online tips and resources for child care and parenting," NameZero said in a statement. (We can only hope that covers choosing age-appropriate gifts.)
