Re: First Name Domain Showcase

I love owning first names. I have quite a few....other than my own name I think my favourite is Alexa. The amount of traffic it gets is unheard of.

Re: First Name Domain Showcase

Wow what a name, I would be tossing up a site there for sure.

I am trying to find out who owns julie.ca, that is my wife's name and she asked me to inquire for use as her blog.

Anyone have any idea who owns it?

I've had lots of interest on it from multiple buyers, but like I said, one deadbeat keeps "buying" it on GD and then not paying.

Maybe he's working the long con to drive the price down?

Pretty sure it was AD at one point. Not sure if that’s still the case.

Wow, you dropped that one?

You have to have a serious portfolio or a big set of stones to drop a domain like that.

I smell a collaboration with rlm and aactive, between the two of you there is nobody more qualified to take that to its full potential.

eh, one of many. I think I was just trimming some fat in a rush, and got lazy and didn't really research it first, so didn't realize it was as popular of a name as it is. Probably shouldn't have dropped it. then again, I still find names a tough sell.

thankfully, no. just a craft/fad to help with the boredom. she made jello shots this summer for a pool party.  I still have half a dozen in the fridge. they're not exactly party animals.

haha, I'll just say we go way back.  If he's going to use it, i'd rather he just have it.

We'll have to have a chat soon, long overdue. I'm 3 hours ahead of you, so will have to be a little earlier than we used to.

LOL. I know it's been a bit of a "tour de Canada" this past 6 -7 years. It looks like Ontario is our home province for good now. Not sure if Kitchener is, but southern Ontario is.

Re: First Name Domain Showcase

I'm not sure i'd be spending a lot on a first name domain. just find something that rhymes and add it in front or back of the domain and you have a cheap alternate for a blog or personal site.

I would never price it such that a blogger or personal site could justify the expense...  I would assume only a business of some sort would buy it for a brand name, or alternately maybe a realtor or consultant of some sort.  A realtor should be the easiest sell - if they weren't so cheap and short-sighted!

I think many of the short first name domains would make great brands. In terms of a personal site or a blog, agree, probably not worth the cost.

I only got my son's first name, kaeden.ca. Interesting to see that another spelling (kaden.ca) was included early on in this thread.

I like names starting in K, I was going to name my son Cameron but in Latin that means crooked nose so I switched the c to a ka and now it has no meaning. My son grumbles though because no matter what souvenir shop we go to he can never find one with his name on it.

I think that it’s very obvious now that it will be a cannabis website. The new owners were so happy with the purchase that they have been using their own product everyday and forgot about the domain! :lol:

I've sold Amin.ca a couple times on GD, but no one ever pays.

The last time I got an offer, I countered at $10,000,000.
