I registered http://www.ndm-1.net and threw up a one-page site. It'll be interesting to see if this goes anywhere in the light of recent news...

What are you trying to do, Paul?

Build traffic, make money, flip the site, or what?

I'm not really sure! Laughing

Any or all of the above... probably either AdSense or flip the site (but more for its domain value than content). For now I was just going to sit on it and see what happens.

Hmm, it'll be interesting to see what happens to it. Would it be worth including a Twitter feed for this? You could be 'tracking live outbreaks' or something. Maybe have a death count as well. The 24 hour news channels love those Laughing

I did wonder whether I should do the whole Twitter/Facebook thing as well...

Can't see an immediate need for either as I'm not sure what you'd say on them.

Hmmm, as a compulsive domain buyer, I'm finding it hard to see this one as a goer. To make money via AdSense, as I'm sure you know, you need a heck of a lot of traffic converting into clicks. Unless you build something to attract visitors, I can't see how you'll achieve this unless you put in a lot of hard work. Urgh!

Re the domain, yes, it's a good one, but who is likely to buy it? Domainers are unlikely to offer high for it (but you could check that by getting a free appraisal on NamePros or the like).

So, who might your end-users be and where might you find them? Maybe information and advice organisations?

I guess you're taking a punt that the disease does go global, then you may very well be sitting on something potentially valuable. Good luck!

PS: Love Adi's idea of the death count!

PS: Unsurprisingly many end-users just don't want to part with any cash - even though they may well have a budget for it.

For example, I own 101Wales.com. The Welsh police created a new non-emergency help line - phone 101. They wanted 101Wales.com to promote this service and asked if it was for sale. I said yes, I'd sell for a reasonable estimate of the market value of the domain.

They never got back to me and bought 101Cymru.net instead. Fair enough, but I don't think it's half as good as 101Wales.com. BTW, thanks for reminding me about 101Wales - that's another one I forgot I owned. Laughing

When you said they went for 101Cymru.net there... I thought to myself "why the hell did they not at least go for 101Cymru.com ?!"

Then I looked it up. Laughing

Laughing Laughing Laughing Twisted Evil

I have a whole stable of 101s. It's an easy number to remember (hence the police using it for their phone line) plus it's a way to get a generic name that I otherwise would have no chance of getting.

Dunno if it's a good tactic or not. Confused
