A smart domain registration — from $10 to at least $1,000 in two weeks.
ICANN plans to use “digital archery” to determine in which batch new top level domain applications are included.
One savvy domainer seized on the opportunity and registered DigitalArchery.com on March 31.
Just another sucker hand registering a domain that will never sell?
DigitalArchery.com has a $1,000 bid at Sedo. The auction closes tomorrow.
A 100x return in just two weeks sounds pretty good.
The seller’s listing reads:
“Digital Archery is the evolution of gaming/lottery on the Internet. The beginning of a craze that will sweep the web. The revolution of “skilled lottery” starts here. Digital Archery.”
Who would pay $1,000 for a such a domain? One candidate is Pool.com, which recently announced a digital archery service for the new TLD launch.
It charges $25,000 if it manages to get you into the top batch and $10,000 if it gets you into the top 50% of batches. So spending $1,000 to potentially snag a few extra customers would be well worth it.
