TENNESSEE – Jamey Tucker is a local television news technology journalist who created a segment called “What the Tech?” over 20 years ago. Tuckers’ segments include tech tips, tricks, gadgets, and news with one this month focused on digital real estate on the internet with websites.
The recent segment included a spotlight on the $3.1 Million Sale of Whisky.com by the Castello Brothers as an example of how much money changes hands for those who snap up catchy names in the early stages. The segment also put focus on “other” alternative domain names, “over three hundred of them,” which could be “paired with a business name” or even given as a gift, often for free (not going into any detail on the common initial registration fee being waived).
An example Tucker gave as being ‘genius’ was Google’s registration of the “ABC.XYZ” domain name for just a few bucks when it did so years ago. Only Google and GoDaddy were mentioned for how to purchase a domain name.
This specific segment was sponsored by Tennessee Wesleyan University in Athens, Tennessee.
