increase table ID's to so next record is a larger ID (instead of next id 20 make it 2000)

Bit of a random one this!

I basically need the next auto incremented identity seed ID of a table to goto something like 2000 instead of 20

the reason.....
We have a automated feature where users can sign up to a free trial
It inserts their details into a table, and uses that ROW ID as part of the domain name
i.e.
http:/20.mydomain.com

the next user who signs up gets
http:/21.mydomain.com

The problem is it makes us really small (we are a startup!) so we want to appear bigger
So,  we'd like to increase the primary key on this table so they boost up to the 1000s so the next record is
http:/2000.mydomain.com

this way it makes us look big as people will think 2000 people have signed up for the trial (and not 20!)

Is there an quick and easy way to do this?
