Caffeine.com is available for use under a unique licensing agreement.
OK, what do we mean by licensing? We've received a lot of offers for this domain, from laughable to almost worth considering, and they never came through with the money. This domain represents a real estate investment in the world wide web, and it's in the best interests of our portfolio to monetize the best way possible. We're not going to pass on this great piece of real estate to some crazy kid with an idea that flames out after six months. You must be worthy.
We're taking a lesson from all those early rock stars that sold the rights to their music for a song (pun intended), only to find out the rights were worth much more later. We think the same logic can apply to domain names. We also looked at the cold hard truth that 80 percent of small businesses fail within the first 5 years, and 80 percent of those that made it will fail within 10 years.
We want this name to go to a successful business project, one of the elite 4 percent that will make it to the 10 year point. As such, we're willing to provide a license for the exclusive use of this domain, with a buyout option after 10 years. We retain the right to revoke the license if the business ceases to conduct commerce for a given period such as 6 months, in which case we will license to the next business.
The above plan insures that caffeine.com will ultimately find a good and worthy home, and we have the best shot at maximizing the return on our investment.
Got a great use for this domain? We'd love to hear about it. Drop us a line at licensing at caffeine dot com.
