the best CAR in the world

November 24, 2008

I had an interesting chat with
Jamie (very) early this morning on who, by the way, is doing a great job, answering questions about domaining to newbies, as well as giving another space for domainers to meet up and discuss …Domains (of course!)..all this in a live video chat.
(when he is around that is!)

This must be a gruelling job to be staying up in front on the laptop for such long hours..
[well hey, that’s what a lot of us domainers do anyway 😉 ]

We obviously talked about and he gave me his impression about the concept.

He opened my eyes to something I didn’t think of!
When he checked ‘the best CAR in the’ , he was agreeably surprised to see the result.

 He found the car amazing but more interestingly, … he’d never heard of the brand itself!

Well now, that came as a surprise to me!

It is quite a well known brand in Europe! When I ask people around me what is the best car in the world? I almost always get that brand as answer.
I thought it was well known all over the world, but apparently not.

This gives some more weight to the concept. We will have some of our domains forwarding to websites that would be well known, giving the concept credibility, as well as some websites that would be relatively unknown but provide such high-quality products that we feel it’s our moral duty to tell the world about them.

In any case, there will always be someone discovering something new!

To take Jamie’s own words,
‘I’ve never heard about them, but hey I guess now I know what is the best car in the world ‘

Do you know what is
‘the best HOLIDAY in the’ ?

token of confidence … or ?

Shopping spree time! Yay!
The last few days, I was building up a list of ‘thebest****’ domain names that I wanted to add to my portfolio and came up with a list that were  available for registration (28th April 08).
after analysing each domain and gauging their potential, I was quite happy with a final list of roughly 100 domains.
On the 30th April I proceeded to buying them and to my surprise, 5 of them got rejected since they were no longer available.
My surprise was even more when I checked the whois of these no longer available domains.
Especially when I saw who registered ‘thebest EMAIL’ and when they registered it.
Created:  2008-04-29
Expires:  2009-04-29
Registrant : “Oversee Research and Development, LLC” 
Could it really be them?
The whois record of , and all match,.. all of them are registered to the same address.

I see 3 possible explanations for this:
1. they registered it to sell it with profit.(front running??)

2. mere co-incidence (although, a bit strange that this particular domain name was registered the day before I tried to register it)

3. they bought it because they believe in the idea too.
I believe that People are generally Good. Therefore, I do not think (at least I hope not!) that they are following the footsteps of Network Solution.  (here also)

I am more inclined towards believing number 3.

If that is the case, a warm welcome to Oversee in the club of ‘thebest****’ owners 😉

 If you are reading this Lawrence ,please drop me a mail (belshass’at’gmail…) to clarify 😉

Enjoy the weekend friends,..
