Some people collect stamps. Others collect art or coins. I’m one of those many poorsouls.com who collect domains. Endlessly.com. Maybe I’m not a collector. I might be a hoarder with a garage full of them. I dunno. Scary.
I’ve collected so many dot.coms, dot.nets, dotinfo’s, I think I might be suffering from a mental condition called schizodomania. Or I’m a certifiable domaniac. Hey, maybe I’ll reserve that. I’ll talk to my IT therapist about it.
I actually own DomainlyYours.com. Why? I have no clue. I’m a way too popular guy at GoDaddy.com, where they love me. Yes, it’s getting that serious. I may need HELP.COM.
Last year when we first started doing PR for a mosquito repellant product that actually caused female mosquitos to lose their appetite for people. I was so excited about the revolutionary product, I went a little too hog wild on reserving all kinds of domains with mosquito or zika in them.
We had launched our campaign during the outbreak of the Zika virus. Now a bunch of those domains are now expiring like MosquitoTaming.com, ZikaMosquitoTaming.com, ETC.com and I’m having a PanicAttack.com about the prospect of losing them.
I offered them to our former client, but they’ve got their own domains they like.
Sometimes when we’re excited about a revolutionary new product, we’re just a little too quick on the draw reserving domains with the result you wind up owning literally hundreds of them reserved over the years. Now they’re just sitting there gathering DomainDust.com.
Here’s a sampling of domains I still own, some for many years. Why? I have no clue. The rationale for reserving them in the first place has escapedme.com. Anyone interested in any of these, contact me at MaddenMischief.com.
