Domain Shane: Actress Hilary Swank made some headlines last week with the launch of her new clothing line, named Mission Statement.
She smartly acquired the domain MissionStatement.com far in advance of the launch, with NameBio listing an acquisition date in January 2016, and a price of $26,000 through Uniregistry.

We want to recognize and encourage women for their strength and ability to not only work towards their fullest potential but who also inspire others to do the same. I have always had the perspective that women need to look within for the answers that guide them to live their truest most authentic selves, to identify their personal “Mission Statement” and dress for how they want to feel.”
I never would have guessed this domain would be the home of a clothing line, which is part of what makes the domaining industry so interesting.
