Man loses $360,000, goes to court over stolen domain name

Man loses $360,000, goes to court over stolen domain name

Do you know that your domain can be stolen even after registration? Check out the story below of a man who paid $360k just for a single domain , 81.com only to have it stolen afterwards.

A man who says he paid $360,000 to buy the domain 81.com alleges it has been stolen.

Sami Debizet filed an in rem lawsuit (pdf) against the domain in U.S. District Court in Virginia in an effort to recover the domain.

According to Debizet, he paid $360,000 to acquire the domain on May 7, 2013.

Two number .com domains are extremely rare and sales are infrequent, but this domain is probably worth a lot more than $360,000 today. NameBio shows just three two-number sales since 2014 and they are all for over $1.7 million. 2013 was before the big Chinese surge in short-domain investing.

One thing that’s troubling about the case is that it appears this domain has been out of the Plaintiff’s control for many years, and perhaps only in his control for a very brif period. Historical Whois records at DomainTools show the following timeline:

May 9, 2013: Japanese owner, domain at Melbourne IT

July 11, 2013: Domains By Proxy, domain at GoDaddy

September 13, 2013: Chinese owner, domain at eName

The Whois records show various Chinese owners since 2013.

Debizet’s declaration might shed more light on this, but it has not been add to the court system yet.

If anything, it seems like it will be difficult to argue common law trademark rights in a domain that was only in the owner’s control for a brief period of time six years ago.

Greenberg & Lieberman is representing the Plaintiff.

What is Web Hosting?

What is Web Hosting?

Web hosting, you would keep wondering, what does it really mean? Well we shall try to put it across in a layman’s language.

But before we start do you know what a domain means? If no, check it out here!

Now back to web hosting!. Let’s assume you live on No. 3 Lincoln drive, Shiropshire.. You certainly dont live in the air!. You must have your own house or a landlord/landlady that you pay rents to in order to have a room/rooms, flat or whole house.

Look upon your address as your domain name where anyone can always come to look for you, and your house as your Hosting account. These are the internet equivalent of the the real world.

Once your domain is set up, it has to be pointed to a space on a server where you can store your blog posts,  emails, databases, etc. So with this simple idea, a web hosting account and domain name are the very first things to be considered in web hosting.

Now that you have our analogy. what is web hosting proper?

Web hosting is a service that allows Businesses, organizations and individuals to post their websites or web pages on the Internet. Now you would remember we mentioned your landlady or landlord? That’s where your web hosting provider comes in!

A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the websites or web pages to be viewed in the Internet. Now the web spaces or facilities that you occupy is where the server comes in.

Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers. When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your websites or web pages will be delivered to them through the browser.

Now if you are considering to find a good web host, we would recommend:

  1. Solid Host Global (Our very own)
  2. Siteground
  3. Hostpaddy
  4. Namecheap
  5. Hostgator
What is a domain?

What is a domain?

A domain is the “Internet House Address ” of your website. Let’s look at the internet as a world, a villa. Your business will represent your house or estate on that world or village.
So if you were to ask someone to pay you a visit at your “Village house” you’re going to need to give them a specific “house” address to look you up.
This is where your domain comes in.
Let’s say your business name is davisconsults. You can register your domain using any domain extensions like: .com, .net, .biz, .store, .foundation, .org etc. Click here to see domain extensions
The .com domain is the most common domain extension for any type of website.
However these days many TLDs have come up such that you can have a domain extension for your type of business. Eg. An online store can use a .store, an organization can use a .org, a business can use a .biz. There are also country-based domain extensions like .in(India), .ng(Nigeria), .UK(United Kingdom) .us(United states) etc.
The prices of domain extensions vary depending on the WEB value.
So having decided which domain extension is best for your business you would need to register the domain.
Once registered it becomes your web address. Eg. davisconsults.com
Anyone anywhere in the world would be able to visit your “web House” by just typing your domain in their browser.

Start your domain search, find the perfect domain for your business today.
