“The “America 12 Conference” is the favorite to become the new name of the current Big East Conference’s football schools, league sources told ESPN.”
It would be pretty safe to assume that this new conference would prefer to own the matching America12.com domain name. Unfortunately for them, domain holding company Oversee.net has owned America12.com since December of 2010. I don’t know what precipitated this domain registration, but Oversee is actually the second person to have owned this domain name (someone else had it a couple years prior).
Interestingly, the Washington DC law firm of Covington & Burling appears to have registered a number of other America12 domain names in various extensions, including America12.net, America12.org, America12.info, and even America12.biz. These domain names appear to have been created on March 5, 2013, and they do not yet resolve. The law firm also appears to be the registrant for the longer America12Conference.com as well.
Ordinarily, I wouldn’t think America12.com would be worth much money, but now that it appears a major college football conference is going to be called that, the domain name could be worth quite a bit of money.
