    Was the watchtower the first ones to register this domain name or did they buy it?

    If they bought it how much did they pay?

    From archive.org, it looks like they were NOT the original owners. At least they did not use it til 2000 as a redirect domain to watchtower.org.

    JW.org was first registered and owned by the Jewish Woman federation.

    I researched this a few years ago using Google.

    Is there a way to find out how much they bought it for?

    The reason that I ask is because, the 2 letter websites are very expensive from what I have heard.

    Elder-schmelder, I don't remember exactly, I think it is less then 10.000 dollar. No problem for a multinational corporation like the Watchtower.
