Ascension Island

Ascension Island is an island in the South Atlantic ocean,
between Brazil and Africa. It is controlled by the United
Kingdom of Great Britain (U.K.). The location map above
was taken from:

Ascension Island is in the same group with Saint Helena and
Tristan da Cunha.

St. Helena is famous in history as the island where Napoleon
was imprisoned in 1815, until his death in 1821.

The current population of St. Helena is about 6,000, and the
"Saint Helenians" are often called "Saints."

Ascension Island is primarily a military base, for both the
British and Americans. It has a population of about 1,250.

Tristan island has a population of about 300.

All of these islands are very hard to reach. St. Helena is the
most accessible, as well as being the "capital."

This general region is called the SOUTH ATLANTIC OCEAN
AND ISLANDS. Besides the 3 main islands, there are several
smaller ones with names like "Inaccessible Island."  The total
population for the REGION is over 7,000.

Besides the military, and other United Kingdom government
subsidies, income is derived from fishing, and from the
powers of sovereignty, - - such as issuing unique postage
stamps for collectors.  The sale of domain names is not
mentioned in the articles.

Most of this information, and much more, can be found by
clicking on:

http://geosciences.ou.edu/~bweaver/Ascension/saomap.htm

and following the various links from that site.
I went searching for domain names that use .ac, but they
weren't  very easy to find.

The  search gave me just about everything but what I was
looking for.  There are plenty of uses for the letters AC, and
plenty of domain names which are "dot ac, dot something
else."  So I ended up subtracting 9 domain names, to narrow
down the search.  I would have subtracted a lot more, but
the subtraction doesn't seem to work beyond a certain point.

I looked for:

I finally found a few interesting sites, namely:
