FMA to Launch Vanity Email Service

In the UDRP decision for the domain name Miki.com, (which was defended by Kenyon & Kenyon and won by Future Media Architects), the company announced its plans to launch a vanity email service on some of its domain names. People will be able to choose email addresses from the portfolio of high value domain names owned by FMA, including Cool.com, Party.com, Falcons.com, Monsters.com, Jackass.com, and many other generic domain names in its portfolio.

Tucows’ NetIdentity portfolio of common surnames offers something similar, but FMA has a portfolio of hundreds of fun domain names that will surely be in high demand. The company is still working out the interface, but according to Thunayan Khalid Al-Ghanim, President of FMA, the company hopes to begin offering the service sometime in the near future.

This is another corporate attempt at wrestling a generic domain name from a legitimate domain owner. How many more victories will Thunayan and FMA need to have before outsiders see this as a losing cause?

  1. I think this might seem like a dated idea but I believe it works well.

    I dont believe this shall make profit but, I think its about something else.

    It shall help to protect his names also from URDP situation aswell.

    Good Luck to him FMA are industry leaders

    Regards,

    Robbie

  2. Another internet company had that idea a long time ago, back in the 90’s. I actually had an email account under one of their names, until they sold the name, and all of my emails were lost.

    I wish FMA luck, but people should just stick with GMail, etc.
