DomainShield .com sold – Justifies own name

The domain name DomainShield.com – registered in 1999, according to top WHOIS tool, DomainTools – was sold on NameJet a couple of days ago.

Frank Schilling and his Domain Lists

If you have been watching the Domaining.com timeline since last night, the ongoing argument is who has the bigger, longer and uncut domain list. Instead of partying on a Saturday evening, some people actually argued about whose list is the most well-endowed. [Insert *Roll eyes* emoticon here].

Under pressure, NameJet winner submits payment to claim domain

A couple of days ago we wrote how a NameJet auction winner placed the domain in question on different domain venues, such as CAX.com, DNForum etc. even though he had no control of it yet.
