Ill put this under failure because the domain name for a project that I'm relaunching this summer has been snatched by a broker for $2200.

I quit the project last year and felt it was completely over. A chance meeting with someone in the industry brought me back and this time I have the proper help and understandings I feel I need for success.

It's a bummer as all the graphic design was done and I'm known for that name already in the industry. I found a new one that is very close and will work just fine, actually opens some things up for me marketing wise and feel I can parlay it in many ways when I relaunch. Its a huge lesson over 12 bucks that I was too cheap to dish out to keep it secure.

Same thing happened to me a few years back, actually because I just never renewed it. It was definitely a $1,000+ domain name but I was in one of my periods of side-walking and probably just deleted GoDaddy's email before reading that my domain needed to be renewed.

Tough lesson, but definitely one to learn from. Nowadays, I buy domains like I do lunch - without hesitation. GoDaddy always has like 30-40% discounts, so a new domain is cheaper than my Chipotle.

Ha I like how u put that, "side-walking. I know that feeling quite well.

Also the cheap domain wont make u run to the bathroom like Chipotle sometimes does :).
