From IDWID to IDWID: No hard feelings?
When I registered IDWID.com and ItDoWhatItDo.com back in October, it literally was for the reason: “Because I can.” That and it only cost $9 per domain. You can see the whole story in the IDWID history.
I just did a Google search on “IDWID,” and much to my surprise, I see that there’s a consulting firm called IDWID Consulting that has the domain name IDWID.org. If they’ve been around, why would they have registered a .org instead of a .com?
Unless they just recently registered and … I beat them to the punch!
A look at the whois records shows that IDWID.org was created on January 4, 2007. If that’s true, then this poor firm got unlucky in registering IDWID.com by only three months. According to the IDWID.org “about” page, the owner has been doing consulting for 20 years.
To IDWID Consulting: Sorry ’bout that. No hard feelings?
Oh, well. Domain registration: It do what it do.
