First Acquisition of 2012…


The year is very young, but I made my first domain acquisition of the year. I purchased on a NameJet auction yesterday afternoon. The domain name has a registration date of 1999.

Little Bighorn is a historical landmark in the United States, and the National Parks Service has a monument there (Montana). You can read more about the Battle of Little Bighorn on Wikipedia or you can visit the NPS website to learn more. IMO, will make a great historical website, although it’s more likely that I will sell it rather than develop it.

Now that I’ve shared my first acquisition, how about sharing yours?

    Nice grab, Elliot! Do you see much action in reselling a domain name like that? I almost picked up but thought it would be too difficult to resell.

    The majority of my income comes from reselling names like this.
