HamAuction.com Up For Grabs

A little birdie let me know that an interesting web address is up for auction today. The Internet domain name, hamauction.com, is at a little over $300 at the moment. For those looking to set up a ham radio-related site, not a bad name!

For those who are interested, it’s being offered up for auction by the domain registrar.  Apparently the former owner didn’t pay the renewal fee, so now it goes to auction to the highest bidder.  There’s a good lesson here — if you own your own web address, don’t forget to keep your e-mail address current so that you get the renewal notices.  Even better, pay a few years ahead so that you don’t wake up one morning and your domain name is gone!

Anyway, here’s the link.
