It’s two ago since Martyn Hett was killed along with 21 other people after a bomb exploded at the Manchester Arena.
Martyn has become a Twitter legend since his death, with his name trending numerous times since his death in 2017. A heartwarming hashtag #BeMoreMartyn is reminding people to have fun and not to take life too seriously.
MartynHett.com is still linked from his official Twitter account. Visitors who visit his URL are greeted with a sales page, offering the domain for nearly $2000. The original domain would have most likely cost under $20.
HugeDomains.com is offering the deceased PR manager and reality TV star’s former website for a whopping $2295 or in 12 monthly payments of $167. As part of their sale’s pitch, the seller reminds potential customers, “Besides being memorable, .com domains are unique: This is the one and only .com name of it’s kind. Other extensions usually just drive traffic to their .com counterparts.”
HugeDomains is not the only company selling the domain, name.com is selling it for $1965.
