It looks like HaydenPanettiere.com has expired and is going to be auctioned at NameJet should it not be renewed today. For those unfamiliar with her, Hayden Panettiere is an American actress (tv and film) who is engaged to world champion boxer Wladimir Klitschko.
HaydenPanettiere.com was originally created back in 2000. Because she is 26 years old now, that means the domain name was originally bought (likely for her) when she was around 10 years old. It looks like the domain name was originally registered on her behalf, and although the domain name has had privacy enabled at various points in time, it appears that → Read More

I am almost done my Pan-Mass Challenge training. Since the beginning of May, I have been slowly increasing the mileage of my bike rides. In June, I began doing longer rides on consecutive weekend days, maxing out at around 120 miles over two days. With the PMC two weeks away, the training schedule is tapering down a bit. Yesterday’s 68 mile ride was the last long training ride before PMC weekend! I feel pretty good and am ready to ride! Now all I need to accomplish is my $10,000 fundraising goal for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and its Jimmy Fund.
Here are some of my domain name industry thoughts and updates from the last week or so. As always, you are welcome to share any of your updates in the comment section, especially if you found something that others might find interesting: → Read More
NamesCon is thrilled to lend our support to Elliot in his Pan-Mass Challenge Ride, fundraising for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. He’s raised 80% of his goal amount of $10,000, and we’d like to encourage our domaining community to get involved and help raise that final $2,000! So we’re willing to go a step further beyond our initial donation with this challenge:
For each Advance Savings Ticket ($599) purchased between now and July 30th, NamesCon will donate $300 directly to Elliot’s fundraising efforts – and we’ll even include your name in the supporting message!
From clean water initiatives in developing countries to transitional housing for US veterans, NamesCon believes that it’s important to focus on giving back and supporting worthy charitable initiatives. → Read More
I think Mike Mann is one of the most successful domain investors, and he has certainly sold more domain names than just about anyone. For those who don’t know about Mike’s background, you should check out Paul Sloan’s Cnet article for more information about him and his domain industry background.
A couple of weeks ago, I wrote about the Zero.com UDRP. Perhaps as a result of this UDRP filing, we now know who owns Zero.com: Google. Have a look at the current Whois record found at DomainTools. A screenshot of this current Whois record can be found below:
