Kathi Derevan: ‘Finally, somebody in a chicken costume who will do whatever you want. Check it out: subservientchicken.com. (HOW DO THEY DO THIS?????)’
☞ I was disappointed at the range of his tricks. But I did get him to JUMP.
Now, you’re thinking, Who was the genius who had the foresight to nab ‘subservient-chicken.com’ before anyone else?
You’re thinking, Why didn’t I have the presence of mind to grab that site back before all the good sites were taken? (And what about subservientduck? Is that taken? Is it too late or me to own Internet real estate like this? I wonder whether anyone thought to claim love.com or coolstuff.com. Those could be valuable.)
The answer, of course, is that people have claimed all the good ones – more than 35 million have been registered. But now comes the estimable Marc Fest with this great tip: ‘Check out deleteddomains.com. Besides the occasional chance to snatch a neat expired domain name, just browsing all those deleted domains is fun. One wonders: what great business plans were built on ‘acespot.com’? Or ‘blobjob.com’? Or ‘epidrug.com’?’
Some domains Marc found that were recently available (of more than 22 million that had once been registered but allowed to lapse):
If you find a few you like, just visit godaddy.com to register them for less than $10 each. Thanks, Marc!
