is FOR SALE!
I snatched up domain name WHAK.com a long time ago (back in the 90s). As a kid I saw the word WHAK used in an old BatMan series/episodes on TV (from the 60s) in the pop-up texts (fighting scene texts; BAM, KA-POW, CRACK, ZAP, BANG, BOOM, WHAM, SMACK, SLAP, ZONK, etc) and have seen it used in various comic books as old as the late 1940s. Comic books have used the action word WHAK to represent a knockout punch (or a hard hit to the head) to a bad guy! To me WHAK was a fun domain to acquire (I was so excited it was available and no one else had thought of it before me, back in the day when many dot com domains were not taken) as it was a 4 letter domain (great for call sign for broadcasting industry) and it was associated in my mind as an action word to grab your attention! These days you cannot simply register a 4 digit dot com, you have to buy them from people like me who hold on to them until they pay off (I have other 4 digit domains, ex: 9lbs.com, 13kg.com, but not as desirable) or make it worth while to part with. To me, WHAK.com is my pride and joy domain name and I do not really want to let it go (you would have to be a geek or a collector of rarities to understand)...
My original use was as a live streaming internet radio station (I used ShoutCast) where I played pranks, novelty songs and funny skits. I would sometimes tell my own funny stories or do the odd prank phone call live. I would call out "W H A K... Whack comedy radio!" and then the sound effects of a punch played followed by a sound clip of people cheering (it was fun being a DJ and sound engineer). After a year of not getting more than a couple sponsors, I gave up doing my own shows and offered comedy radio stations with Google Adsense (micro sponsors) ads as alternative just so the domain was still alive.
2010 I changed the homepage (entrance page) with the large WHAK logo (comic book style is what I imagine when I see the capital letters WHAK) as I will be using the domain for my business cards. My card will simply have an actual cut out stencil text saying WHAK.com and nothing else (people are expected to be able to figure out to go to the site and click BIZ CARD link or FUN STUFF). I had put off making a logo for so long, but with help of Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator (also able to send to plotter/cutter to make stickers/tshirts), I have made a good job of what I wished it was years ago.

Want to buy WHAK.com (valued $100,000.00+)? I will not sell it cheap as it really is a million dollar domain name if used right! Only serious offers will be considered! I might consider selling it for $100,000.00 CASH (will be on ebay for more once I bother to list it) and I will let it go and even throw in 5 years of ASP/PHP hosting. Also, I will throw in 2 other 4 digit domain names; 9lbs.com (I weighed a bit over 9 pounds at birth so I thought this would be a good domain to sell baby clothes/toys) and 13KG.com (power search the web) will be given as a bonus with all current source codes working on live sites. WHAK is not as well known as my top 10 sites on the internet because it's mostly reserved as my personal site (all my business card says is WHAK.com and the person is expected to know to go to the site and click BIZ CARD for my details/contact), but with new content and promotions, it could be the next Google (as far as branding recognition). Click HERE for Google results for WHAK.com or compare with Yahoo HERE.
If you want my entire network of over 100 domains sites (better investment) and a super powerful web/chat servers and services (all sources, as it sits right now), offer me $1,000,000.00 (just the top 2 popular sites alone have an estimated worth of over 1 million dollars, CustomSignGenerator.com $700,000.00, SillyScenes.com $350,000.00, Canuckster.com $350,000.000). They get about 20,000,000 visitors a year, thousands of registered members; and I do not even pay to advertise them (with some advertising, you could double, triple or more your traffic). I do not even offer to sell any products much to speak of, so there is great potential here that I am not even using to a great financial benefit and most sites just offer freebies (could be make to offer paid services and goods like custom clothing, logos, hosting, printing services, etc). I only rely on Google sponsor ads for an income (only one of hundreds of ways to generate an income) and that alone can be almost $100,000.00 a year income (and not all sites have all the pages implemented with sponsor ads, just think if every page was optimized). More estimates of values of my sites that would be yours for $1 million dollars: SignGenerator.org $250,000.00 (#2), TXT2PIC.com $250,000.00, ImageGenerator.org $250,000.00, SillyWebcam.com $150,000.00 (1,000,000 unique visitors a year), SpiffyText.com $75,000.00, Mirrorizer.com $50,000.00, FriendlyCanadian.com $50,000.00, ScrapbookGenerator.com $50,000.00, ComicStripGenerator.com $50,000.00, FanSignGenerator.com $50,000,00, SignGeneratorMaker.com $50,000.00 and another 50 domains + sites ranging from valuations of $1,000.00 to $30,000.00 that are not as worthy (may not be completed or not fully working without tweaks, semi parked domains) to mention (remember, these sites values go up if you add good content & pay for some advertising and get more popular). Some sites have been online since the 1990s (majority are from 2000 to 2008) and are already established on major search engines. Over 300 web applications just dying to be made into high traffic FaceBook/Google/iPad/iPhone/etc apps (making these into apps could double/triple your traffic alone).
You are thinking about buying the last 12 years of my life? I started my first website back in 1998, my last was 2010 and you could own it all! Thousands of demo projects & source codes (ASP, PHP, Flash, Visual Basic) too. You will get all available source files for graphics I created (Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator) and logos (you will get full rights to them).
The first thing to realize is that, if someone owns a good domain name, they needn't be in any rush to sell it. If it holds value now, it'll probably hold value tomorrow, and, most likely, several months or even years from now (all I know is every year my income increases 10% to 20% more than the year before so to me they get more valuable to me the older they get). I am in no hurry to sell these sites for less than a million bucks as in 10 or so (less possibly, give or take a few) years that is what I could make from them without changing too much of anything (many things need tweaking to take advantage of sponsor ads fully). With the right team and website business group, you should be able to make a million a year from these sites! I have put over 20,000 hours (20,000 x $25/hour = $500,000.00 worth of labor already done programming and setup of these sites), most pages only need a makeover (better layout, new content if desired). I have created search engines, dating sites (could be made paid, thousands of members already), chat sites with public chat server (software included), funny sites, prank sites, image making sites, gaming and many more. Full domain list coming soon.
For big purchases (over 100 grand), I am willing to come to your place of business to set things up anywhere in United States. You will have to cover expenses of my labor, hotel, food & travel (free/included with million dollar package).
