buying bunnyhug

So I’ve been thinking about putting together a web-based side project of some sort or another, and in a shout-out to my homies back in the Skatch, I decided to check out bunnyhug.com. A little investigation revealed bunnyhug.com was taken by a Chicago band that apparently played a couple of gigs a few years ago and evaporated. If there ever was a web site at bunnyhug.com, is ain’t there now. So I emailed, thinking maybe they would sell.

They want sixty thousand dollars.

Now, maybe I’m naive, but I can’t think of any scenario where bunnyhug.com is worth sixty large to anyone. I can’t even imagine, in this age of search engines, it being worth $6000. I mean, it’s really not a great name unless you’re from Saskatchewan, and even then “great” is, let’s be honest, quite a stretch.

I’m not faulting them for wanting to keep the name. That’s cool. I wasn’t really expecting them to sell. Maybe they’re going to make a comeback or they’re working on an album or something and not having a web site is part of the plan. But I can’t help but wonder, is there still this kind of market for domain names? Are they really saying that if I only had $40,000 to offer, they wouldn’t sell? I dunno, but I snapped up thebunnyhug.com. You can have it for the discount price of $30,000.

    As the registrant of the domain in question, I would like to suggest that perhaps I would take $40,000.

    Cobra is wrong. I get paid in pounds now, so 60k isn’t much, especially with the dollar being devalued. I think the new price would be more like 150 – 200k, US.
