Making your bets..

I was about to write about something else when I remembered something I stumbled upon last night.  We were hoping to create a website for Jan Kurt by getting his domain name, and lo and behold, I found out it had been acquired last September 19, so I could no longer get the domain name on behalf of Jan Kurt.  I guess someone was enterprising enough to shell out the money to get the domain name for all the names of the top finalists of Philippine Idol.

Domain name listings are a matter of public record unless you pay for a private listing, so I checked on who could have possible acquired the domain name.  It turns out it’s a company based in Virginia, here in the US.  You can actually acquire a domain name for as low as $2.99/year here now.  Yahoo sometimes makes a special offer of $1.99 even.  So it doesn’t really cost much — all you need is the foresight.
