I lost my url name and need advice

Post by Frank »

I owned through wordpress, but my registration lapsed and that url was purchased by someone else, who will sell it for $2800. I can either bite the bullet and open my wallet to buy back that name OR start over. The cheap bastard in me says start over, but the stubborn plugger in me says that I shouldn't let 10 years of "building the brand" (modest though it was) slip away.

What do you guys think?

Also: is there any money in domain name squatting and reselling? $2800 seems like an awesome profit on a meager investment. Any good resources on how that works? Ever sold a domain for $$$ or know of someone who has? That particular business seems especially cloaked in apocrypha and bullshit.
