<email@example.com> Having noted the selling / leasing of vanity addresses & second level internet domain names by certain small islands or territories (Ascencion? Niue??), I was given to wonder if this may be the "cyber" equivalent of stamps & coins for collectors (or sale of prime real estate to hotel chains). Are there any signs of this kind of commerce beginning in Africa as the continent becomes more connected?
