People often do some shady things in the domain industry or simply related to the industry, so I find it funny when they try it with me!

Today, I got an email from “Rhonda Starr” using the email address rhondamstarr@gmail.com which included:

Hello,

Any interest in the mybudgethome(com) domain name?

Rhonda

No shit I’m going to reply! This is going to be fun!!!!!! So I replied with:

Wow, that is really a great domain name! I’d love to buy it but I’m currently attending college and am not sure if I could afford this amazing domain name.

Here is another round of large company domain purchases from the series DotWeekly Discoveries. The following domain names were either recently registered or purchased in the domain name aftermarket or directly from the past owner of the domain name.

Staples, Inc has purchased the call to action domain name MakeMoreHappen.com on or about 2/4/2014 for an undisclosed amount (I tried). The domain name was under the generic “DnSinations Inc and Matt Serlin” whois data until recently. Prior to that, the domain was under privacy protection prior and registered with eNom which took place on 1/2/2014.

When I write stories on DotWeekly, I share them because I care about the domain industry! I care about helping others learn! I share because it helps ME learn. Knowledge is power and knowledge often comes from DOING!

Physics: for every action, there is always opposed an equal reaction!

I am normally “the nice guy” but I am starting to think that being a dick from time to time is going to be needed. I can be a dick and be nice I guess.… Read the rest

In today’s DotWeekly Discoveries, I only included newly registered domain names. I sometimes save these up for slow days, like today when not a lot of transfers are taking place because it’s a weekend. So here are some recently registered domain names by some large companies and some info related to the registration if I could find it.

Dropbox 

Hand registered the domain name DropboxNameGame.com . I tried visiting the domain name, in which it told me that it was mobile only.… Read the rest
