Who Stole Your Domain Name?


My sister sent me a heartbreaking story of foreign intrigue and corporate theft. No, it wasn’t a fictional thriller. It was fact. Someone stole a popular, profitable domain name right out from under the owner’s nose. Not only did the thief steal one domain from the hapless owner, the burglar stole four!

Do you own your own domain name (your URL for your web site)? If so, perhaps you should read this:

  1. A few years ago, I lost a domain name due to some crooked people. One I’d had for a decade. Still makes me cranky to think about it. I didn’t get it back. But you move on.

    • Agreed. I am still trying to learn the lesson of moving on gracefully. Most of the time, it’s easier said than done. That explains the occasional growl you may hear coming from my direction. 🙂
