My boss at the time (now famed inventor Al Contarino) had gone a little domain registration crazy. He wasn’t alone. In the dawning age of AdSense, affiliates, and arbitrage sites, and before the world economy declined, staking your Internet claim was all the rage. A good domain name was considered key to rankings and traffic, and grabbing a key term could net you a huge sellout if the giant companies of the age needed it.
