I first attempted to register the domain name VictoriaYoung.com in 1999, but it was taken by another woman with the same name a couple of months before I tried to get it. Every year since then, I checked to see if it was going to be allowed to expire and drop. But the other Victoria Young kept renewing it.
She did not actually use the domain to create a website. She just forwarded it to the page about her at her employer’s website. This year, I discovered it had dropped and I picked it up the first chance that I could. Hooray!
I’m sure there are hundreds of women in the United States and other English-speaking countries who are named Victoria Young, so this domain name could easily be in demand by many people. I feel lucky and grateful to have been able to acquire it.
