I need help from one of you internet peoples about a URL

By iwog following x   2016 Nov 14, 5:21pm 718 views   8 comments   watch   sfw   quote     share    


I've been receiving more and more offers to buy the url KTBN.COM that I have been squatting on for years. They are the call letters for the Trinity Broadcasting Network (Christian TV/radio) but to my knowledge have no other useful purpose.

The latest offer was $5000 which makes me wonder what I'm missing here. Is there a way to easily monetize this website or could this be TBN trying to buy it back on the cheap?

Just wonderin.

What is TBN's annual revenue? I'd base the sale price on that.

I don't know anything about them. I registered it about 10 years ago for a nun porn site but just never did anything with it.

Here's their hub now and they have a shit ton of networks.

I think you could get at least $100K at the moment...

Fair enough. I'll start the bidding at $100k. Thanks Patrick. =)

I've got multiple offers over $1000 now which is why I think something is up. I held this thing for nearly 10 years without anyone sending me jack and now all of a sudden it's hot property.

The TBN people probably more than anyone. They're crooks.

So the parking page that presumably generates income for KTBN isn't owned by me and when I attempted to make changes though the registrar, it came back with a "you don't own this DNS server" error.

So I put in a change request to move it back to GoDaddy parking which should take effect in the next few hours.

This may have been redirected 10 years ago for all I know but how did this get hijacked without my help?
