Kochi, April 16: Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook can be addressed as the online revolutionary face who connected billions of people and made billions of dollars from his game-changing innovation. But this master entrepreneur had been beaten up by Amal Augustine, a Kochi based engineering student in India. Amal, a student of electronics and communication from KMEA Engineering college has ‘beaten’ the master of communication in his own game by blocking the registration rights of maxchanzuckerberg.org, on 2 December 2015. Max Chan, daughter of Mark was born on 1 December 2015 and the next day the domain in her name (.org) was registered by Amal. According to reports, FB approached Augustine to buy the domain name registered by him.
Amal, a final-year electronics student was thrilled by FB approaching him directly. The student from Kochi said that he had a passion to buy domain names and it has earned him a small profit, reports Times of India. Amal sold the domain for a $700 (Rs 46,000), however he could have asked for a much better deal from the FB negotiators. The request came to Amal through a casual email from GoDaddy (a domain service provider) asking him whether he is interested to sell the domain by the end of this year. To which Amal replied yes and the domain was soled for a decent sum of $700. Domain name is an identification string that defines administrative autonomy of the person who had registered it. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). – Courtesy maxchanzuckerberg.org / http://chanzuckerberg.com/
