Thread: alanbestbuys.com is down, and reaches a parking page

  1. #1
    For those of who you don't know, this site was originally alanbestbuys.com, run by Alan Mendelson. In February 2016, Alan split the forum from his main website, and transferred the forum portion to me. The forum was already on my server, but up until February 2016, it was owned by Alan, and he made all administrative decisions. When he was tired of running the forum and was about to take it down, I volunteered to take it off his hands. He asked me to transfer it to a new domain, which I did.

    Here's Alan's post stating this, in February 2016: https://vegascasinotalk.com/forum/sh...sino-Talk-quot

    That's how Vegas Casino Talk was born.

    alanbestbuys.com, the site originally created to support Alan's infomercial TV show, still persisted. I hadn't checked it in awhile, but I know that Alan's Best Buys was still airing as of semi-recently.

    Out of curiosity, I checked the domain today, and noticed that it is simply a parked page, meaning that the site is essentially down. It's possible Alan doesn't even own it anymore.

    Perhaps Andrew G could shed some light on this?

    Oh, and despite some "issues" I had with Alan in the past, I have nothing against the guy. I hope he got his problems worked out, and I hope Jason did, as well.

    At one time I really liked Alan, and considered him a friend. Those days have passed, but I still hope things are going okay for him. I did not create this thread to needle him. I am simply curious where the site went, given its past strong ties with this forum.

    It's not for sale, but it kinda looks like the registration lapsed. It says, "alanbestbuys.com coming soon to register.com", implying that it will be available for purchase if not paid for soon.

    Registration fees tend to be quite cheap (I pay about $15/year for this site), so I'm not sure why this is happening.

    Mr Mendelson has not had his Best Buys TV Show on for more than a year so he dropped the website. He now does half-hour TV Infomercials exclusively. I think he has six or eight Infomercials running now on various channels and in various markets.

    The website for his Infomercial business is www.AlanMendelson.TV

    That you for the update on your client. I do have to ask if you charge extra for updating gambling websites about his business at 4AM Pacific on a business holiday?

    The firm you work for certainly seems very thorough in their representation of a client.

    No Mr Troll. I come to this website for information about Vegas casinos. Unfortunately there hasnt been much information lately. So you won't find me in many of the discussions here.

    Says the guy who LIES about who he is.

    Not one person here believes you are not Alan Mendelson. And that in its self may be the greatest occurrence ever on these forums, getting everyone to agree on one statement.

    Dan could clear this up once and for all, but I think he made very clear his thoughts on Mr Mendelson above.

    It's not unusual to park names until getting an offer and deciding to sell or re-up the pages. I have a couple names that I park on and off that are worth a little bit. Their estimated worth is more than vegascasinotalk.com, for example.

    Trumpsters will be happy to know that the estimated value of my stormylovesdonald.com is roughly the same as vegascasinotalk.com. LOL.

    Oh darn. It was so riveting. This is almost like when Seinfeld went off the air, felt like my life was just so empty. Flags half mast everyone.

    The valuations given for those websites on domain registrars is almost random, just loosely based upon a combo of perceived traffic and perceived value of the words in the domain name. It bears little resemblance to real life.

    I could probably sell my Poker Fraud Alert site for decent money at this point, but not for the content. It would be for its longtime association with poker and gambling, and reasonably good google results. Plenty of shady online casinos would fork over money for the opportunity to take it and spam out their offerings.

    Seems to me that alan's contributions to these gambling boards have been under-appreciated through the years.

    I recall sparring with him on an old usenet board a couple decades ago, IIRC.

    Sure, he's had ups and downs in his life but through it all he has continued to contribute his notions, skewed though some may be.

    He's also harmless and basically inoffensive, which is a good thing.

    Hopefully his infomercials yield enough profit so he can rise above the twenty-five cent VP level so he can once again regale the boards with tales of hitting a high limit hand pay of a hundred grand.

    Too bad Singer played him so long and so masterfully, but I suspect alan is a trusting soul whose intentions are basically good.

    But I could be wrong, who knows?

    I've enjoyed the vast majority of forum interactions I have had with AlanMendelson. I wouldn't swear on a Bible (even as an agnostic), but I'm 99.99% confident we have never spoken outside of the forums in any way.

    Alan/AndrewG deserves a lot of credit for the constant punishment, that was doled out to him over the last decade. He took it very well for the most part and continued fighting in the ring. He's in a league with other warriors who kept taking a licking, most notably : EvenBob/ Spike and Tasha/Nathan/Karen etc etc etc. Shout out to all 3 of these noble warriors, who have shown us enormous fortitude !

    Mr Druff I was curious about your statement about selling your website. There are some free to use pricing tools on the web that take into consideration URLs and perceived values.

    GoDaddy has a free pricing tool. I just used it to get some "values."

    PokerFraudAlert.com $1,155
    Vegascasinotalk.com $1,050
    AlanBestBuys.com $835
    AlanMendelson.tv $100 or less

    What is surprising is Mr Mendelson has a website URL he never used...

    BestBuysTV.com $1,398

    Why should AlanMendelson.tv have any value at all? It's not for the general public.

    I met a guy years ago who owned a ton of domain names. At that time certain domains could be worth a lot of dough. I don't think they're worth as much these days. I remember "surfing" the web by domain name. orange.com or baseball.com would have been worth a lot more back in the dark days before google.
    Take off that stupid mask you big baby.
