Build a business case: developing custom apps

A British e-commerce outfit reckons it's on to a winner by offering for sale some 300 punctuated Web addresses.

Surrey-based Silicon Smart Ltd believes the sale of hyphenated domains "opens new opportunities for any business wishing to establish a successful brand online with an easy to remember, distinctive domain name".

The "easy to remember" Net real estate currently on offer includes E-N-T-E-R-P-R-I-S-E.COM, C-E-L-E-B-R-I-T-Y.COM and E-N-C-R-Y-P-T-I-O-N.COM.

But be warned, there are loads more as well.

"Silicon Smart did not register the domain names for the purpose of resale but has decided to sell some of the names in order to raise capital for other internet ventures," it claims.

"The sale is not expected to last long as these names are extremely unique and the supply of good domain names in the market is scarce."

Is that so?

No one from Silicon Smart was available for comment. Which is a shame, because we wanted to know if Y-O-U-H-A-V-E-G-O-T-T-O-B-E-L-I-V-I-N-G-I-N-C-L-O-U-D-C-U-C-K-O-O-L-A-N-D.com, I-S-T-H-I-S-T-H-E-W-O-R-S-T-N-E-T-I-D-E-A-E-V-E-R.com, or C-O-M-E-O-N-G-U-Y-S-Y-O-U-C-A-N-N-O-T-B-E-S-E-R-I-O-U-S.com were still available. ®
