Much was made about the fiscal cliff last year, and luckily (I guess) the US never fell over. Mike Berkens wrote about how FiscalCliff.com was a great hand registration, and the domain owner even received an offer close to $40,000 for it. Judging by the Whois, it looks like a deal was never consummated.
Fast forward several months, and the US is facing a sequester. The short story is that the sequester would cut quite a bit of governmental spending, and it would impact everything from education to food inspections. If you live in the US, you can’t avoid watching something on tv or online about the sequester.
Interestingly, Sequester.com is being offered for sale by BuyDomains (not an affiliate link), and the domain name is far less expensive than the offer mentioned by Mike Berkens for FiscalCliff.com. The price seems like a fairly reasonable $8,500 for a topic that has been in the news a lot lately and may continue to be in the news for quite some time.
I am not an advocate of buying this type of “trend” domain name, but it seems like a fair price considering the sequester could go on for some time and the widespread reach of this action. With that price, I am surprised it hasn’t been bought yet.
