Bob H Boyd | Investigative Report ~ KnoxGhost News
More than a year ago, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours was rocked by a loss. Our original domain name, www.knoxghost.com, was ripped from our clutches by a set of online opportunists. The domain was ransomed back to us for a colossal upcharge. Though lesser teams might have paid the bounty, we held fast. Luckily, after months and months of waiting, not to mention rebranding all of our materials to www.knoxghost.net, Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours has triumphed. In the words of J- Adam Smith, “I refused to give in.”
“We are KnoxGhost,” says Smith and the name is finally, “back in the family.” Now, whether you’re partial to “.net” or “.com” you’ll be able to find the home of Haunted Knoxville Ghost Tours, and the answers to all your paranormal investigation needs. This kind of thievery is common to active online businesses like HKGT, as companies from around the world constantly track website traffic and jump on any vulnerable domain. According to our founder, when it comes to website ownership, small business owners have to be sure to, “Read the fine print.”
However, when it comes to making sure that Knoxvillians can reach out to experience our haunted city, and making sure they find the right guide through that world, changing our domain and its associated efforts was a, “[labor] of love.” Until next time, the investigation continues at www.knoxghost.com .
