This morning, Future Media Architects announced the launch of Jackass.com and Jogging.com, two of its hundreds of generic domain names. As you may recall, Jackass.com was involved in a UDRP dispute last month, and FMA prevailed over the complainant, Viacom, parent company of MTV.
Jackass.com has been developed into a resource site about donkeys. In addition, there is a search functionality on the site allowing visitors to search the web for information about donkeys, mules and other jackass-related topics.
Personally, I am most eagerly looking forward to FMA’s launch of Ibiza.com, which is expected to happen later this year.
I’ve seen several Internet blogs, articles, and forums where people refer to my friend Thunayan as a “cybersquatter.” From my own personal experience in launching several websites, each one takes a lot of time, effort, and energy, and it’s no easy task. I know Thunayan is involved with many projects other than domain investing, so it’s not fair to label him simply because his company owns so many great domain names and is taking its time in launching websites.
It’s always easy to criticize others from a far, but timing is everything when it comes to web development.
