I Hate Domain Squatters


So I’m trying to find a new name for a site and the majority of the names I’ve come up with, more than 60 now, are taken by squatters. They lead to pages with ads on them and the message this domain might be for sale and they want thousands of dollars for them, which of course I don’t have.

There’s one name that I really want but it’s like $3500 I think and it’s a shame as it’s just sitting there with some ads on it doing nothing. They paid probably, maybe, $10 for and they’re getting a ridiculous profit out of it. Capitalism at its best I guess, it’s good and it’s bad.

I think there should be a limit on squatting, like if you don’t actually develop the domain then you lose it, and you have to keep it updated like say once per week or something. It would be good for everybody really, we’d have actual sites with information on them instead of blank landing pages and there might be some more interesting stuff out there.

I don’t know, the system is broken and I don’t see it getting fixed anytime soon sadly. It’s just one of those things and I just felt the need to rant because I’m frustrated.


Cyersquatters Suck!

So I’ve been thinking of re-doing and even re-naming DragonSteelMods…

I’ve come up with a lot of names, and I’ve searched for the available .com domain name, about 50 of them so far..

they’re all taken and it’s pissing me off to no end..

it wouldn’t be bad if they were actual websites, but 99% of them are cybersquatters asking 10’s of thousands of dollars for the names.. they’re just parked pages with ads on them.. they’re ruining the internet seriously, there could be valuable and informative sites on those domains but no, some one had to take them and hold them ransom..
