I was looking for short, non-hyphenated .coms to start new sites and was shocked by the asking prices nowadays. One trader wanted $20K for a domain and when I didn't want to pay he asked for $2K per year for "leasing". Amazing... what's this world coming to? Imagine investing a whole load of time getting great PRs and then you got to return the domain to its owners. Can anyone tell me if this is indeed the future, and maybe we should all be buying great domains and hoarding for our retirement plans instead of buying stocks and bonds? Because if is - I'm going that route!
