Six-figure domain name expires, is pending renewal or deletion

The screenshot you’re looking at is actually a screenshot of the home page, taken from 2008 and was captured by DomainTools Screenshot History.  Up until April 11, 2011, the domain name had been registered to a Brenda Thornburg. 

That’s all changed.

Today, is nothing more than a Network Solutions parked page – along with a message at the top that reads, “ expired on 04/09/2011 and is pending renewal or deletion.”

And Brenda Thornburg (the original owner) is no longer listed as the registrant, “Pending Renewal or Deletion” is. Whois

At the time of this post, the domain name is up for auction at NameJet as a Pre-Release name. 

According to, appraises for $106,000.  

Readers, if makes it to auction without being renewed by its original owner, how much do you think it will sell for?

In 2007, sold for over $12,000 on SnapNames.

[UPDATE Apr. 20th, 2011:  The original registrant has renewed the name, and as a result, the domain name will no longer head to auction at NameJet.]
