  1. Interesting, but I’m pretty sure you can start up a business without investing too much money. Today we have a wide range of extensions and several tools to help a smooth start up. Anyway, my opinion. I would never put that amount of cash in advance.

    Thanks Tess, Drew and Erik,

    Wow what a great show. Congrats on a great purchase, you made money on the buy. It is encouraging to see great sales like this, amazing. Well done man & good luck!!

  3. Mike says:

    Erik, thanks for sharing your story. It’s very helpful to hear the thinking that goes into the purchase of such a top-level name. “A truly controversial charity about making money and giving it away.” I can’t wait to see what you do with this name. And thanks Tess, and Drew for a “Great” interview and for keeping Domain Sherpa going. See, it was hard to write this without using the word “Great.”

  4. Carl says:

    Hi Erik — Thanks for sharing your story! And congrats on Great.com too! I wish you all the best in bringing “A splash of colors” to everyone…everywhere!!! And thanks Andrew for your BIG VISION, and to you and Tess for being positive energies in the domain market! Cheers, Carl
