Registered a #domain name early on? Shame on you!

If you registered a domain name early on, and someone else wants it now, shame on you!

This is the attitude prevalent in today’s start-ups, and one has to deal with such responses when pricing domains:

“The only thing you did was claiming this domain much earlier than anyone else. “

Let’s dissect this sentence, coming from a Uniregistry Market offer, a little bit.

First, our guy who shall remain anonymous, attempts to downplay the importance of the domain’s registration. That’s the only thing you did, he says – indicating that it’s an unimportant, sole action.

Of course, it’s easy to talk down on someone on the Internet. This type of keyboard bravado works both ways, however.

We told the guy to take this attitude to an art gallery with unique, original works of art. Would he dare use the same phrase with the artist? We don’t think so.

Lastly, “much earlier” indicates acknowledging defeat. That’s right, mofo, we were there first!

Perhaps, you were still sucking on your momma’s big old titties when the domain was registered. Or going through puberty, and your daddy would not let you buy anything other than Cheetos and acne cream.

The truth is, it doesn’t really matter.

When you own a domain and pay renewal fees for it, it’s yours to do as you goddamn please. You can use it to post a picture of your daily excrement for all you care! 😀

To recap: getting a domain first, entitles you to give any suitors the middle finger, any time they dare talk down on your rights to it.

  1. I had the domain name “amazinggraphics.com” way back in 1995. I was late with my second year payment and somebody stole my domain by paying my registration fee and changing it into their name . I was never able to get it back and nobody is using it but they’ll sell it to me for $50,000 or so. I had it trademarked; does that give me any protection? Is there anything I can do to get my domain name back at this late date? I tried and tried back in 1995 but I was a single mother of two young children and couldn’t continue to pursue it. At one point the hackers even stole the Domain name of ICANN!!! And they redirected it. Is there anything I can do?
    Thank you,

    owner of domain and graphic arts business “amazinggraphics.com”. I still have all the files so I can show that it was trademarked. I can’t afford to hire an attorney although I could write a check for $50,000 and then cancel it?
