Dummy Tries to Sale Domain


Here’s a funny anecdote I have to tell.

A short while ago I received one of these email offering me to buy a domain name “encontext.com” from some person that I’ve never heard of before.  Note that I own encontextmedia.com and encontextadvertising.com so a least the initial attempt to get me interested in this “root” domain made sense.

Typically, I ignore these types of email offers since I am not keen on spending any money for the sake of a domain name but this is a name that I researched a few months back and that was no available at the time.  Additionally, my company’s name: EnContext Media LLC is just fine and while “EnContext” would be cool to have, I did not care too much at this juncture.  Finally, and until now, I’ve never felt the need (and I hate the idea) to pay more than the 9.00 bucks or less for a domain name anyways.

Nevertheless, out of curiosity, and, since I had an initial interest in this domain, I decided to check out who was the owner now by looking up the “Who Is” on GoDaddy.  I logged on to GoDaddy, entered the domain “encontext.com” name and… Low and behold… It was available for purchase at the basic $9.00.  At this price, why not.  I made the purchase.

Thanks dummy for letting me know that this domain was available again.  This worked out better than any alert I could have set.

One word of advice to the dummy though. If you are going to try to con someone out of a few dollar, at least try to do it in a smart way.
