This is the first real blog post on the Name Stag, and it is primarily a test of the B2evolution CMS that is the software driving this site. B2 evoluton is a fork in the development of the original B2 script, and I really like it. The other fork has become more popular, and you may know it as Word Press. At the moment I'm sitting in a McDonalds restaurant contempating buying my third cup of coffee, and using their free WiFi. I've synchronised my Bitcoin node, and I've looked through my favourite expired names list to see if there was anything I wanted for $1. I missed one name that ws listed as a $1 buy-it-now - you really have to hit this lst at the right time to pick up the $1 bargains. They operate as dutch auctions - that is a dropping price auction. Some of the names start at over $3,000, and the price drops gradually as the expiry period draws to a close. I didn't see any name that I wanted, but I put a watch on half a dozen to see if I could get a bargain there a bit later. I'll get my coffee, and have a look through a drop list to see what is left. I'm about 14 hours toolate to get the best bargains, but there my be something left that will suit my unusual interests.
I didn't spend too long, as I'm getting interested in the internals of B2evolution, but did register one name - FoxFoo.com
I found this by looking through the list of short(ish) names that were registered in other TLDs, and this one has a broken Joomla site on the .net. I have a weakness for what I call 2x3 names ( two three character dictionary words), and I suspect that this coloured my judgement. All of the tests and indicators showed me that I shouldn't have registered this name, It has no data in google search trends, and no monetisation for a keyphrase search. Estibot values it at $10, and I suppose this is better than $0. Somehow the name caught my imagination, so I picked it upfor reg fee. Now I have to decide what to do with it.
