Last year I listed Queen.com as one of my top 10 domain puchases/bargains. I even listed what I paid for it. The price has no bearing on what the value or what I may eventually sell or lease it for if I choose. The potential buyer can TRY and use it against me but it will be a useless effort and a waste of their energy. It will fall on deaf ears. If you want 1997 prices.....come back in 1997.
So in August of 1997 I was able to acquire Queen.com. I probably tried to buy King.com as well that same day. I'd have been overwhelmed to have gotten both but as we know King.com has gone on to great things with their #1 Candy game.
But I was happy to get Queen.com and in those days there was much talk of Princess Diana being Queen. That was 2 years before her unfortunate death.
But that was not the main reason for the purchase. I was thinking more on the lines of a "gay slang, queen is a term used to refer to flamboyant or effeminate gay men" according to Wikipedia. And thinking that way earned me into the 6 figures because that traffic was very valuable. It still is.
Of course today when you think of the highest and best use you may think of a rock group that most of us enjoy. They use Queenonline. To my knowledge I have never been contacted by them. But back in 1997 mainstream had yet to embrace the Internet "FAD"!
The great thing with a domain like this is I have my choice of how to use it. Where to use it. Where to point it to. I can move that "Door" to any subject I like. If the Royal Baby had been a girl, we might be talking about the future queen.
As a matter of fact TODAY, I am redirecting all Queen.com traffic with a "Door" to this post. Thousands of you come to Queen.com and I am sure many of you will not find what you are looking for. Then again I am hoping a few of you take a moment and comment on what you were looking for and intending to find here. It may be different from the ones mentioned above as new "Slangs" and new "Things" happen all the time.
Thanks for your time!
PS: One of the reasons I see problems with Search is if you are on Google looking for THE "Queen", the Queen of England does not appear until page 3. Where does that leave the others using "Queen" as part of their name, good or service? The "Disco" Queen. The "Roller Derby Queen". The "Homecoming Queen". The Queen CITY".
