This year the domain is actually www.foss4g2008.org - the url you note is just the full site url our domain redirects to. Some Apache configs could mask that. 

There have been several discussions on this - see past threads - one suggestion was 


or www.foss4g.org/2008

(osgeo was given the foss4g domain as a gift)

Tour Hosts are setting up a web site for foss4g 2009 and we need to set 
a domain name.
So far, there doesn't seem to be much consistency in the domain names:


Options we have, with my comments are:
+1 This is my preference
It associates foss4g with osgeo and ensures that osgeo will always 
control the domain name.

This means we will either have to buy all domain names like this now, or 
face a domain squatter stealing the domain from us.

This doesn't link osgeo to foss4g.

-0 This url is getting a bit long.
