OccupyWallStreet.com on Auction at GoDaddy
When I received my morning email from Dropping.com, OccupyWallStreet.com was the domain name coming up for auction that stood out the most. It looks like OccupyWallStreet.com expired in July, and the GoDaddy auction for it is concluding this afternoon.
The Occupy Wall Street movement was one of the leading news stories back in late 2011 and 2012. Although largely out of the public eye these days, it looks like Occupy Wall Street is still in action. You can see more about Occupy Wall Street and its current events on the OccupyWallSt.org website.
According to Archive.org, it looks like OccupyWallStreet.com was previously used primarily in late 2011 and throughout 2012. The domain name was originally registered in 2011, and the Whois registration has been private since 2012, so I am unsure about who owned this domain name.
Interestingly, the Estibot valuation of OccupyWallStreet.com is $58,000, although I think that is extraordinarily high considering that the Occupy Wall Street movement is largely out of the public eye and daily news reports. In addition, there are other alternative spellings and domain names that would likely be as meaningful as this one.
At the time of publication, there are 30 bids and the high price is $315. Upon the conclusion of the auction, I believe there will be a short window of time for the previous domain name owner to renew the domain name before the auction winner gets it.
