The fan site idea is a great one. If there are any fan sites that already exist, he may be able to give the domain to them as well. You might also post at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/ Specifically in the domain section. You should be able to get some good direction there.

(I'm not sharing the name yet because I haven't asked him if he wants to publicise the fact that he's selling.) It's a dot com, the name of his band which was wildly successful in Vegas for 38 years. They all retired from full time showbiz two years ago, and he thinks it's time to let it go, but would prefer not to just drop the domain name he's had for quite a few years (obviously not 38 ;) I'm going to suggest that he post a message on the site for any fans who might want to take it over as a fan site. Any suggestions for making a rational valuation, services to use/not use, things he ought to think about, avoid, or plant in the basement? joel -- Joel at Bizba6.com http://BusinessHeretics.com/ -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
