So I got to thinking... When you go to purchase a domain name, you can purchase it from any site that sells them. Which means, none of them specifically own them. As I recall (from a truck I posted quite a while ago), the government essentially owns all domain names that aren't currently in use. So, how do these companies go about gaining rights to sell domain names? Is there a certain license or something you have to get, or how would you go about setting up a company that can sell them?

It's $2,500 and otherwise not that hard, since there's a ton of registrars out there. It is hard to make any money as a registrar, though, unless you're GoDaddy.

Ouch, thats kinda expensive
I was thinking about setting up a small business and doing this, but it would probably take me half a year+ to break even. Plus, I don't have $250 to blow, much less $2500.

Thanks for the link though, its interesting to read all that stuff and find out how it all works.
