    Not sure what to think of it. I looked at the auction and sent a question and asked the owner have they had any inquiries. Not sure if it's the truth but the return email said, "we have had many offers in the mid six figures and requests from internationalist but will hold out since we have owned the rights for years and know someone will accept the contract transfer from Network Solutions eventually....."

    we'll see...wonder how much Ebay will make when it sells...

    I was about to flame you as to why this was in the iPhone section.

    Why would we want to talk about Hewlett Packard here?


    And then I realized what it really was. Damn I'm slow, maybe because it's almost 3am. lol

    Ditto. Why would anybody (Other than Apple, or maybe Microsoft?) want to buy this for $1.2 mil.

    There has always been stupid domain name stuff at crazy prices on ebay like this. They never sell.

    If this sells, I'm gonna register domain names of every major entertainment company, movie, music, artists, devices, etc backwards.

    You don't know anything about domain names, do you? It's far more than just the name itself, its the value in search engines.

    Yes, I know quite a bit about domain names and domain names have little relevance to the intelligence of today's search engines. Yes, the domain name is used during a crawl, but today's search engines dive much further into a website than just its domain name. For example, I could have a website on a domain name called thesiteisforpeoplethathaveredcars.com and sell iPhone's on it. Google's search engine is smart enough to find that I sell iPhones at this site and it would index it as a site that sells iPhones. In addition, there is little to no value in a website called enohPi.com or any of the other idiotic ones people try to sell on ebay at large amounts. Most people are not going to think of going to enohPi.com to view information about iPhones. A Google search would return the site regardless of the name as long as it included data that referenced a iPhone during a web crawl.

    If you rephrase it "posted this thread" I'd say pretty high. Really a one-trick pony, no?
