Domain Squatting: Buy and Keep the Best URLs

A few years ago, the web development company for the George W. Bush administration accidentally let the domain “GeorgeWBushLibrary.com” expire in a fleeting moment – or maybe few days – of disorganisation.

The greatest thing you can do is educate yourself and understand your own assets - so reading really is the way forward.
