    That used to be a large fear of mine when domains were $35/yr, but now at 7-9$, it's a lot easier to eat the loss.

    Might want to try on ebay and see - but I doubt it would sell.

    Unless you find a company named jmrepairs

    Nothing.

    You might search for such a company and offer it to them. For instance, there is a JM Sewing Machine Repairs located in Malta.

    JM or Jim

    Incognito, I guess nightscream is looking more for a Jim instead of a J.M.

    WildCard, jimrepairs.com was probably registered at some $35 a year.

    nightscream, either JMrepairs.com or JMRepair.com is NOT yet registered?!

    well, dotregistrar charges $20 for a 1 domain value pack. So I guess that's the max he paid. Cheaper if he bought in bulk.

    Register that domain for your customer before some unscrupulous person here does!

    Find Jim

    WildCard, you're right. jimrepairs.com is registered with dotregistrar, so
    nightscream probably won't need to be exploited by the registrars which charge the highest price in the industry and yet provide the worst services on earth.

    nightscream, for some $20, I guess my suggestion would be to find a friend called Jim (hey, it's a common name; remember the blockhead who lived a block down the road and went to the same high school as you?), persuade him to quit his accountant job and work as a handyman instead, then give him the name.

    Okay, let's get down to business. Jim is a common name (as said), so it won't be VERY difficult to find. Do a search on Google with "Jim Repairs" or "Jim's Repairs".

    If the $20 isn't that big a deal, I would just put a 'for sale' page on the domain and just let it expire in a year. If someone contacts you, great - if not, oh well. Then you aren't wasting time that would be better used to make money your normal way.

    (next time, get your domain from someplace that sells them for under $10. No reason to pay more than that, seems you get much worse service the more you pay..)

    Hi All

    The domain wasn't expensive, it's just that it's my first mistake of the kind..no one blamed me for it..it was ok..

    I guess I'll be searching my address book for the Jims I know! hope I get lucky..

    hehe...can't I put an ad in the hosting requests for a Jim?

    hey Nightscream, did you register the right domain yet? Someone mentioned that the domain was still available- the one that your customer really wanted.

    Check into it man!

    TC, your me7.com really sold high, eh? Did you even think it would break 50$.

    Domain market is a funny one...

    Let's just say eBay sales do not represent the true potential of 3-char domains.

    yeah, I figured. You make it up somewhat with the s/h fee I imagine - and you get exposure to your website. You get a lot of newbs complaining about the extra fee?

    Lot's of Jims

    Lot's of Jims out there repairing and most have considerably poorer domain names.
