One day, in front of you are Steve Jobs or any of the Apple CEO at the time, and the price: “$ 10 million, if not you will not get your desired domain name“, then surely it will be very interesting.
Apple is one company had acquired the domain name related to your most and least expensive.
Buying and selling domain names can bring in huge profits, more than the drug trade or business of gambling and prostitution illegal - these days are considered “super profits” now.
Letter i million
Return to the deal to sell the domain name to Apple, what can be represented Jobs or Apple will be refused and said: “10 million is too high a price, we only spent 4.5 million for iCloud.com 1 million and is negotiating for iPhone.com domain name iPad.com but not with the price of $ 10 million … $ 1.5 million he think? “
I never text back to the world price, bulk domain name with the letter i in front, behind is a word that means both registered a decade ago.
The letter i in the Apple products such as the iPod, iMac, iPad is explained: i = i, i = internet, i = intelligent (smart), i = the individual (unique, individual …)
iCloud is registered from the date 15.01.1999, if the maintenance fees are US $ 10.5 / year (register for free) until 2011, the owner of iCloud only takes total maintenance fee is 126 USD (2.646 million VND) . Apple bought the domain name, is said to have cost US $ 4.5 million - the equivalent of 94.5 billion Vietnamese currency.
This is a huge profit, such profit may only be available at the auction of ancient works of art, such as the Chinese giants buy an antique vase, or regional giants Arabs to own a unique number plate for the car.
In addition to having acquired the iCloud price “gouging”, Apple has also acquired iPhone.com to cost $ 1 million, acquisition iPod.com (unknown value) and will probably have to negotiate the purchase of the iPad. com - if the company wants to acquire all domain names related to their products.
So, Steve, or more accurately, Apple will target the public domain?
There are interesting things that we can rely on that to the thinking of a domain name that can potentially Apple will covet:
The portable mobile products popular Apple begins with the letter i, followed by the letter P, then again as a vowel and end with the letter d.
We already know what Apple device is an iPod, iPad coincides with this rule, although the origin of the name, many people know that the iPod was inspired by the movie “2001: A Space Odyssey“, iPhone is simply the word puzzle with letter i phone (phone), the name remains a mystery iPad. But if this logic, the name iPud.com, iPid.com will be the domain name that you own.
Add one more thing, Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino put (US), so it is likely iCupertino.com will bring you money.
Steve Jobs was a potentially huge impact on the community the most current technology, he was also the most influential for Apple products, then an Apple product to mark completely may appear when Steve is gone. Surely there will be a product “made by Apple,” Jobs called iSteve, or iSteve, iJobs.
But while Steve Jobs was CEO of Apple, he has the right to name the product or not? If he is right, then a story that Steve Jobs has a daughter named Lisa … wow, iLisa can be a lucrative domain name …
However, you may be disappointed by the above domain names have been registered, such as a domain name is Apple‘s most coveted iPad.com was created from 21.04.1997 and expiry date 04/22/2011-term (that is in case the employer does not continue to renew), while the new iPad tablet computer launched in 2010.
And all the domain names I‘ve listed above, employers have had, even before Apple make their products more expensive hotel: iPod.com been registered since 1998, iPhone.com from 1995 and the iPad has been registered since 1997.
