Domain Dilemma

I have a dilemma… The old domain www.lievschreiber.org, Liev’s old site is available for sale… But, it’s not cheap by any stretch of the imagination! It would seem someone has bought it with a view to making some serious cash from such a well known domain name, making it nearly impossible for anyone on a regular income to purchase it.


I’ve been wracking my brains all weekend, trying to think of ways of raising the money to buy it. It’s a reputable name, with a long and wonderful history, and I would hate to see it fall into unscrupulous hands, intent on exploiting it to make even more money on it, when it should be used for its namesake.


I considered taking out a loan, selling some valuables, to cancelling my long awaited and planned for New York trip in September… My holiday money would just cover the cost… But, I wouldn’t be able to save up that amount of money again for ages…


I then considered some form of fund raising… Perhaps setting up a group on Facebook, laying out exactly what was needed, and that every little bit would count, but I can’t bring myself to do it… I set up the site with the help of a close friend, and now the site is solely mine, including the monetary responsibilities, so ultimately, the cost of buying the .org domain falls to me, and me alone.


So, I wanted to know what people thought. Any suggestions are welcome, including any votes on whether I should just buy the www.lievschreiber.net domain instead, as it is far cheaper, even if it is unknown.


Please email me any votes, suggestions, comments and thoughts to lievschreiberforum@yahoo.com
