Guess Who Owns EmptyChair.com Domain Name

Guess Who Owns EmptyChair.com

20

Without looking at the Whois (unless you’ve already done that) guess who owns the EmptyChair.com domain name.

If you guessed Mike Berkens, you’d be right. If you guessed that he was watching Clint Eastwood’s speech at the Republican Convention and immediately jumped on to his computer to hand register it, you’d be wrong. Mike’s company has owned EmptyChair.com since at least 2005, according to the Whois history tool.

It seems that the “empty chair” phrase is catching on and has become a hot trend. Apparently, some people put out empty chairs on their lawns yesterday as a sign of frustration at the jobless rate. A union leader apparently threw an empty chair after pretending to speak to Clint Eastwood in the chair.

In any case, if you want to purchase EmptyChair.com, you are in luck. According to the landing page, which does not have any PPC links on it, you can now buy the domain name.

The hottest political term coming out of the Republican National Convention is now available for immediate purchase!

This domain is priced at $50,000.

It’s serendipitous when you own the domain name of a hot trend. Hope Mike makes a nice sale.

      Which means that R. Schwart made a better deal, because for reg-fee he bought not just one chair, but more chairs :)

    Some domain names go up in value on a seasonal basis, which can be lucrative for those who own domain names that people in politics are willing to spend on come election time.

    That’s one of the sweetest feelings in the world when one of your domains hits a trend. I’ve had it happen once recently.
