Apparently Kanye West and Kim Kardashian had a baby that they named Chicago West. As one might imagine, a domain name like that was long registered before the young West was born. In fact, ChicagoWest.com was registered back in March of 2015.
Since 2015, the domain name had been owned by HugeDomains.com. A Screenshots.com entry shows the domain name was for sale and it had a price of $2,095.
As of very recently, the domain name is now registered under privacy at GoDaddy. If you visit ChicagoWest.com, the domain name resolves to a generic GoDaddy landing page. This makes it unclear who bought the domain name – or even how much was paid. One thing seems clear though: someone bought ChicagoWest.com as HugeDomains.com says the domain name was sold:
Assuming the West Kardashian family (or someone associated with them) bought it, I think that was a smart move. Spending around $2,000 to secure the domain name seems like a no brainer, especially for a family that has substantial wealth.
We may not know for certain who bought ChicagoWest.com for quite some time, but my guess is that it was the family of baby Chicago West.
You can play the game a few ways, HD goes short and it pays, the down side you miss out on a lot of pay days.
They price their names at such levels for a reason that I understand, may want to hire someone to weed out the one’s that do not have to be priced sub wipo or udrp cost lol
Not sure why he named his child after one of the U.S. cities with some of the highest violent crime rates. It’s an interesting domain name though.
