To state the obvious, this current website of mine is www.kenyoungart.com. From 2012 till November 2017, I had a previous website at www.kenyoungart.co.uk, provided by Website for Artists. When I gave up the subscription to that service, I had to let the old domain name go. (It was registered to Websites for Artists, you see, not to me.)
The Other Website
By accident I’ve discovered that kenyoungart.co.uk has since been acquired by someone else. Not by another Ken Young, or even by an artist, but by someone offering clothing and accessories for sale at clearance prices.
Now, I don’t know if this other website is legitimate or not. I’ll merely say I think it’s odd that the people behind it would have chosen my old domain name, which doesn’t reflect the kind of business they operate.
I ran a search and found that a woman with an address in Beverley, North Yorkshire apparently (re)registered the name this month.
I don’t think I’m going to let the situation worry me.
For the record I want to say that www.kenyoungart.co.uk, the clothing retail website, has nothing to do with me. I’m not responsible for it, in any way.
