I woke up to a Google News alert this morning with the title “Three Businessmen Quick to Jump on City Domain Names.” I nervously awaited as the site opened, fearing a negative article about owning city .com domain names.
The article interviewed and discussed Leland Hardy who owns NewYork.com, Larry Fischer who owns Queens.com with Ari Goldberger, and Kevin Cahill who owns StatenIsland.com. Although there isn’t anything really groundbreaking in the article, it was interesting to note that Cahill became a real estate agent as a result of owning StatenIsland.com, and he said he’s made $100,000 from the site.
It’s always interesting to see articles like this appear in the general news.
“Now [Cahill’s StatenIsland.com is] hoping to entice local businesses to advertise and islanders to post events. He’s only gotten a few takers: a book author and a local band.”
It’s amazing how many people still don’t get it.
It’s hard to get more bang for your advertising buck.
As a Brooklyn boy, this hits home.Thanks for the heads up on this article.
Kudos to Kevin for becoming a real estate broker.
I personally like NYC.com / NewYorkCity.com much better 🙂

Not everyone has that choice to make but nyc.com would be my top choice
