So I guess I have to brag a little about my son.
We were at the Mercedes-Benz dealership looking at some cars when we noticed the most insane domain name ever.
Are you ready for this....
Mercedes-Benz-Kitchener-Waterloo.com & mercedes-benz-kitchener-waterloo.ca
and if that is not bad enough the email address is email@example.com
My son smiled and said....
Dad lets check mbkw.ca
Guess what? It was available and he bought it right away.
I emailed my friend at:
ujetter@mercedes-Benzkw.com and asked him what he thought of firstname.lastname@example.org
Wink Wink, sow the seeds
The most confusing part about all of this was their email address is completely different from the main domain.
I told them to forward mbkw.ca to mercedes-benz-kitchener-waterloo.ca and to us @mbkw.ca for email.
Did they listen?
My son Kameron (K1D) is 13 and knows more about domaining and the value of domains than those so called smart business men.
