It’s always interesting to see what celebrity or pseudo celebrity domain names sell for.
I was looking at DropCatch today and saw that ChrisGardner.com was closing and it went for over $1,000. It closed at $1,039 to be exact.
In 2006 Will Smith portrayed Chris Gardner in the Pursuit of Happyness. The movie based on Chris Gardner’s autobiographical book of the same title.
Chris Gardner operates on ChrisGardnerMedia.com. ChrisGardner.com looks to have been owned by a songwriter known as Country Chris Gardner.
The domain name has no backlinks so it was not purchased for that reason. Mr. Gardner has done very well in the world of stocks and bonds. I would imagine someone is hoping he comes along and wants to own his name outright and eliminate the media from his domain name.
