First Acquisition of 2012…

25

The year is very young, but I made my first domain acquisition of the year. I purchased LittleBighorn.com on a NameJet auction yesterday afternoon. The domain name has a registration date of 1999.

Little Bighorn is a historical landmark in the United States, and the National Parks Service has a monument there (Montana). You can read more about the Battle of Little Bighorn on Wikipedia or you can visit the NPS website to learn more. IMO, LittleBighorn.com will make a great historical website, although it’s more likely that I will sell it rather than develop it.

Now that I’ve shared my first acquisition, how about sharing yours?

    Nice acquisition Elliot!

    One that I acquired recently is HireCars.net

    I’ve purchased 5 domains over the past few days and I’m very happy with all of them.

    Cheers

    Nice grab, Elliot! Do you see much action in reselling a domain name like that? I almost picked up AdirondackPark.com but thought it would be too difficult to resell.

    My first acquisition of 2012:

    @ Perry

    The majority of my income comes from reselling names like this.

    @ Elliot

    How would you target potential buyers for something like LittleBighorn.com?

    Targeting buyers for a domain name like NightLights.com or MemoryBox.com seems a little more straightforward than something like LittleBighorn.com

    Not sure… will figure that out when I get it in my possession.
