I want to share a video of a TedX talk that John and Jackie mentioned to me in a pair of comments. In the video, Carvertise CEO Mac Nagaswami discusses his company’s rebranding to Carvertise and what it took to acquire the brand match Carvertise.com domain name. It’s nearly 20 minutes in length, but it is well worth the time when you have an opportunity:

Excellent story Elliot! Worth watching, thanks.
That is the best domain story I have ever heard. Thanks Elliot
Thanks for sharing…that was great!
That video is without question a classic and should be in everyone’s library.
Great story, thanks for sharing
Thanks for sharing, seen it before but a great share.
He says the first name he got was carvertise.gov. Doubt that.
I believe he talked about using different names and email addresses as well.
Thank you, Elliot
Owner gets so many offers daily that he doesn’t respond to offers of 7500 USD for his domains. Must be sweet to be in that position. I’ve met people who picked up premium domains when they first became avail to the public for 100 USD each in the 90s. They made hundreds of millions USD and stay completely out of the “domainer” spotlight — never been to domain events, visited or posted on blogs. You have to wonder how many people like this guy (the owner of carvertise.com) made tens and hundreds of millions in the gold rush domain days. The shy computer geek who registered sex.com and match.com also had an amazing portfolio of other .com premium domains that became valuable and and sold for millions during the Internet Boom days Who was the guy who registered vegas,com and sportsbet.com for 100 each and sold them for 8 figures each?
