I reached out the to the owner of frontier.ca over email who didn't respond to my initial emails. I noticed that Frontier.com was owned by a large company that probably didn't want to part with the name. And, sadly my favourite, frontier.co wouldn't respond to me either.
But then there was this weird domain, frontier.io.
.io means Indian Ocean. It's one of the British government's many domains. It's harder to get and more expensive than the average domain but has become popular among tech business along with .co.
I found out the owner was a guy, Ross Timson, in Newcastle England. I googled him and found his Twitter account. We messaged back and forth and a deal was made. I sent the money off via wire transfer and got the domain that Frontier currently uses to this day.
What an adventure it was using technology in this way. I hope you, reader, will have a scavenger hunt like this in your lifetime too.
