domain name

In the world of domains, it’s first come first serve. Linda Ikeji has been using a blogspot since 2006, and didn’t bother to register an actual domain.

Of course, it was only a matter of time before someone would buy the dot com. Linda is said to make close to a million dollars per annum, making her unclaimed domains a fiery red bull’s eye for even more cybersquatters. Linda didn’t care about any of this until Google pulled her blogspot for alleged copyright infringement. Now she has to register a domain willy nilly. The trouble is, all the good ones are gone.

Here’s a list of lindaikeji domains and the “sharp” people who nabbed them. This list is updated as we find more squatted domains.

It didn’t matter that the site was hosted on Blogger, and that it had an unintuitive URL. Consistently one of Nigeria’s most trafficked websites, LIB was…er…is insanely successful.
