Richard Whitney, a person whose Whois information I’ve come across many times, reached out to me yesterday to solicit feedback on one of his developed websites. Richard began investing in domain names in 1997, and he has quite a gems. Richard is looking for constructive criticism and some content feedback prior to launching his site.
Here’s a note from Richard, and I will chime in with some feedback soon:
My name is Richard Whitney, some of you may know me and some may not, I have been involved in the domain business since 1997. I own several thousand domain names and have bought and many throughout the years.
Back in September of 2008 while reading the Wall Street Journal, I came across an article entitled How to Handle “I Hate Your Company.com”. I liked the domain name so much that I contacted the owner and bought it. I thought that it would go well with I Love Your Company.com so believe it or not I hand registered the name. I noticed that most of the major corporations are going after names such as walmartsucks.com, ibmsucks.com etc.
With a bit of hesitation, I launched iloveyourcompany.com/ihateyourcompany.com, a safe haven for people to talk about companies that they love and hate.
I am eager to make this work and would love any and all feedback, negative or positive. I need help populating the site as well, so if you would be kind enough to help populate, it would be greatly appreciated!
