I’m often asked: “Why Baileyzone.net?”
In the 1970’s and early 1980’s, I serviced a radio studio that recorded stories
for broadcast. These segments are known as ‘Magazines.’ The recording
engineer did a great imitation of Rod Serling reciting the intro to
“The Twilight Zone.”
One day, I had him do his imitation so that I could test the recording chain.
Instead of saying Twilight Zone, he said Baileyzone and that recording became
our telephone message for years. I received many compliments on it.
Sometime in 1990 (I don’t remember exactly when), I registered the domain
name Baileyzone.com with the Internic. Registration of a domain name with the
Internic was free. Then, in about 1991, the process was handed over to Network
Solutions and everything changed. Network Solutions charged $35.00 for
registration and the same for an annual fee and I complied. However, Network
Solutions somehow lost my renewal fee which took months to resolve.
Network Solutions answer to the problem was to issue a refund but the domain
name was gone. A cat breeder in Florida had grabbed it. The cat breeder used it
for a couple of years and then it was sold. During that time, several companies
got into the domain name registering business. I went with one of them and
registered every version of Baileyzone that I could. I eventually let all of them go
except for Baileyzone.net. In 2012, I launched a website using the domain name.
For a couple of years, I watched Baileyzone.com as it changed hands and
became more expensive each time until I finally lost interest.
The domain name is still available if you’re interested.
