I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could help you..
He's still got loads of sweet ones too !.

1997...I was on the internet for one year then, I bought my 1st home computer in June 1996 for $5000 from futureshop. I joined the internet in September 1996. I was using some old search engine called squirrel or something and I was browsing with the old archaic Netscape Navigator! I used to chat on the IRC - Internet Relay Chat. My webprovider had a simple webpage builder and I made my own homepage (one of those ones with the huge long names that ended in "~yourname") Man...those were the days..
Weren't .com names $100 each back then? I didn't have that kind of money to buy just ONE even though I remember checking to see if my first name and my IRC nickname was available. I had no idea how to BUY or anything to do with iPage hosting or registrars, I thought it was a.
Process that only large companies could utilize..
Ahhhh hindsite is always best, no?..
I started my first Internet dial-up company in 1993. Had I known of how the HostGator industry was going to grow, I would have been hording them, even at $35 per pop...
Future Shop...yeah, they got me too...about 300 hundred less then.
Yours...lol Internet ready, IRC ready (I had just discovered MIRC) all.
I wanted was to get on the net...they saw me coming.
But I never even had a concept that I could actually buy a .com, didn't.
Even know they were available to the average Joe,.
At that time in my life, it was 900 and 976 numbers...which way to go,.
Horoscopes or porn, $35.00 bucks a minute...Now it's on the net....
Geeeez......hindsight, you hit that one right Kerrijo..
Yeah Rick Schwartz definitely has visionary credentials. I'd have to put that guy Yun Ye in the same category though. His portfolio sale to Marchex for $164 million woke up a lot of wall street types. Again cite dnjournal cover story for the details. And then there was me, who registered a couple of ridiculous .com domains in 1995 that are still worthless even today...
I don't think that any name registered since 1995 would be worthless..
Yeah that was some sale eh !!.
I just can't imagine how many years it would take for them to ever get their money back in PPC - thats if it lasts that long ??.
I bet loads of those names are'nt really that great too, just there to beef out the portfolio - I wonder what percentage of them actually receive decent steady traffic ? .
I must admit, I can't really get my head around it.
Have these Wall Street types been sold a dream ? .
I Just found this.
.....looks like it was'nt that risky of a gamble.
The portfolio Yun Yee sold for 164 million were reportedly generating about $19 million a year in revenue !!!.
Works out to a price of about 8.6 times the annual revenue.
