Domain Name Q&A – January 13th 2014

This is Domain Name Q&A. I am using the search terms that visitors of my blog are using at Google and other search engines to find my website. Some of the search terms are in the form of a question and some are not. I attempt to answer 5 of these questions every day. Answers are usually kept sort. Anyone can ask a domain related question using the “contact us” form.

Answer 2: is one of the best domain name registrars in the world. It is located in Australia, is ICANN accredited and is certainly not running any scam. If you think that someone using Fabulous is running a scam, let me know.

Question 3:
.vg domain names

.vg is the ccTLD for the British Virgin Islands. .VG along with .GD and .TC ccTLDs had an adventure last year.

Question 4:
Answer 4:
A UDRP Complaint for the domain name was denied at WIPO. The Panel recognized that buying a domain name can be considered an investment and that offering a domain for sale is not necessarily improper and does not make its use illegitimate. Read here about this very interesting decision.

Question 5: domain
Answer 5:
The domain name was sold at Sedo for 1,650 USD back in October 2012. I consider it a bargain.
