LLL.de Auctions at Sedo There’s a LLL.de event over at Sedo, all of the auctions will end in approximately 2 days and 15 hours.
Personally, at the moment of writing, if I were to choose between LLL.co.uk domains and LLL.de domains, I’d choose .de simply because you don’t have to worry about something like the .uk introduction which definit...

Quick Sunday Tip: Put Together an “End User Education” Email Reply Template Some of the people who will contact you in order to inquire about a domain literally don’t understand what makes certain domains more valuable than others. Sure, most of them won’t turn into buyers even if you educate them but a few of them will.
For this reason, having an “end user education” email reply tem...

4 GoDaddy Discount Codes … three of them for dot coms at $2.95 each and one for dot coms at $2.49 each.
I think the first two should work for everyone, not just for people from the US/Canada.
Not sure about the other two.
Oh and I’m pretty sure all of them work for new regs as well as transfers.
Here are the

Dot Net and Dot Org Price Hikes The registries (PIR aka Public Interest Registry for dot org and Verisign for dot net) will be increasing the price of dot net and dot org domains as of the 1st of July.
Just thought I’d let you guys know so you can make the proper arrangements.
If you can, try to register/renew/transfer domains before the new

Do You Treat Service Providers With Respect? Since I specialize in providing online services, I hope you’ll find my experience useful and also hope it will at least slightly change the way support guys, account reps and so on are treated.

Domaining and Money Management Isn’t it ironic that sometimes, you have money burning a hole in your pocket but it just seems there are no decent deals on the reseller market? The same way, the exact opposite can often happen: you can come across lots of great deals but at that very point, not have enough liquidity to go

Why Are You Buying That Domain? One of the approaches I don’t agree with is the “meh… I might develop it later on” mentality.
Realistically speaking, domainers *won’t* develop most of their domains, the overwhelming majority in fact.
How often have you been guilty of thinking something along the lines of “meh… I might deve...

iKeyword.com and eKeyword.com Domains Don’t Always Make Sense! Surprisingly enough, most people don’t yet understand this.
In a lot of cases, iKeyword.com and eKeyword.com domains can be great investments.
They’re easy to remember and *usually* represent a logical choice.
For example, eFurniture.com makes people think of online furniture information or online furniture sales and it...

Dot Coms at 3 Bucks from GoDaddy It’s not the best deal I ever posted but it’s the only coupon I was able to find for you guys this week. I think it works for other countries as well, so not just for the US and Canada but I’m not sure since I haven’t used it.
If you used any other GoDaddy coupons

The LLL Dot Com Market – Bullish or Bearish? Personally, I think most LLL dot coms will go up in value dramatically and that all LLL dot coms will go up in value.
I have an extremely bullish long-term perspective.
There’s no doubt in my mind that there will be occasional short or mid-term corrections but I’m very optimistic when it comes to their long-term potential...

Sometimes, Playing It Safe Can Be Dangerous I’m sure you noticed that precious metals have been performing poorly. Gold was at $1,900+ back in 2011 and at the moment of writing, it’s at less than $1,400. Silver fell even more percentage-wise compared to the highs.
In my opinion, lots of gold investors made a huge mistake: they didn’t understand that at such p...

Domaining Isn’t an Exact Science Like with any other industry, people are always looking for foolproof guides/strategies/whatever but the truth is, there’s no such thing. Domaining isn’t an exact science, there can never be guarantees.

When Trying to Save a Buck Makes Sense and When It Doesn’t I created a brand for myself as the #1 cheap bastard in the domaining world
I always write about coupons, good deals and so on because in my opinion, being a cheap bastard pays off in the long run. But trying to save a buck doesn’t always make sense, so I decided to write

The Euro Is RIDICULOUSLY Overvalued! Right now, it’s close to the 1.31 area compared to the dollar. Absolutely ridiculous.
An overvalued Euro is a nightmare for the brick and mortar economy as well as for the online world, I’m sure European domainers and webmasters will agree with me.
During the 2000 – 2002 period, one Euro was worth less than a Dollar

A Bunch of $1.99 – $2.95 GoDaddy Coupons These seemed to have worked ~24 hours ago for someone from the US. Didn’t try them personally.

Show Me the Money ;) “I might eventually develop it”
“I’m waiting for an offer I can’t refuse”
“I’m not in a hurry to sell”
If you’re an experienced domainer and have confidence in your strategies than sure, phrases like the above make sense. But if you’re a beginner for example, how do yo...

The TRAFFIC Auction Results Seem Decent I don’t think the list Elliott posted is the final one but based on what I’m seeing, the results seem decent.
The grand total isn’t impressive by any means but all in all, I’d say the prices the domains fetched are decent.
I didn’t see any domains for which you can say that they sold at extremely

Domains at $0.98 from NameCheap on the 3rd of June? There’s another NameCheap campaign going on at the moment of writing, click HERE for more details.
Basically, they will be offering domains at $0.98 each if they receive 20,000 retweets.
The deadline is June 2, 11:59 PM EST and there are almost 6k retweets at the moment of writing, so I’m pretty sure 20k is a realistic

Should Domainers Launch Offline Projects? Lots of domainers/entrepreneurs have no experience with offline projects whatsoever, so they’re obviously tempted to launch at least one even if only to see what it’s like.
If you’re in that situation as well, should you start an offline business?
The short answer, in my opinion, is “no”.
