Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 44 Today, I’m asking people to make an offer on 6 gems: GGHK.com, BHWW.com, Fanboys.com, Instability.com, AffiliateMarketers.com (website included) and MegaSites.com (website included). The main and only “catch” is that you’re only allowed to make one offer. That’s it. It’s been a while since I tried ...

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 43 Giving people short domains (final price reductions for GGHK.com, BHWW.com and RRHK.com) as well as keyword domains (297 of them) today, should be interesting. It’s been quite a while since I’ve featured keyword domains on the newsletter, so why not?
At $99 a pop, the price isn’t exactly prohibitive and it’s a...

The First New gTLD I’ve Seen “In The Wild” In My Country :) For the first time since new gTLDs have been released, I’ve actually seen a local business use one in my little Eastern European corner of the world. I was driving and noticed the site being advertised on a red transportation car. Of course, I took a picture (well, my wife took it), for your viewing
You Can Even Lose Money With Free Domains Today, it’s easier than ever before to buy domains on the cheap… the only problem is that the “quantity over quality” strategy doesn’t exactly work very well… at least not usually.
The title I’ve chosen may seem weird but it’s quite accurate.
Some of you might remember that Dot Berlin ...

I’ll Give You Blogging.Services for Free It’s no secret that I for one am not a fan of new gTLDs, so I don’t plan on keeping any.
I tried selling Blogging.Services on my newsletter for peanuts in the past and failed, so I decided to give it to someone. The first person who comments on this post with the text “ME” gets

Are You Paying Attention to the Brexit Situation? Don’t really like the idea of writing about politics-related stuff on a domaining blog but the fact that this month (on the 23rd), the United Kingdom will decide if they stay in the European Union or leave is a big deal. As in literally a huge deal, especially with the polls indicating no clear winner.

Huge List of Thoughts After My Honeymoon Haven’t posted over the past month or so due to the fact that someone was crazy enough to sign up for a lifetime of me
After planning/organizing the wedding, getting married and enjoying our honeymoon (got back in town yesterday night), it’s time for a huge list of thoughts about the industry, about my
What Were They Called? End Users? Seeing the term “end users” written on my WordPress dashboard as I am typing this seems… well, just a tad bit strange. I actually took a moment and thought about whether or not I should use a hyphen between “end” and “users”, I kid you not
Over the past year or so, this term was

Come On GoDaddy, Fix Your WHOIS Thingy Already! Maybe if we say it frequently enough, they’ll actually do it
It’s frustrating that whenever I buy a domain from someone and transfer it to GoDaddy, it retains the contact info of the seller.
I mean come on, would it be so hard to simply use the default contact info of the GoDaddy account?
OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 9 I’m trying to increase my video publishing frequency and today, it’s time for a new case study update, this time about my one-minute dot com bubble explanation. In my opinion, you just *have* to publish a video about the dot com bubble on an economics channel. Everyone’s talking about the great depression and the gr...

Most Chinese Investors Are Beginners Reading buyout threads has been quite frustrating because most of them have something in common: due to the fact that China has been the main “engine” of those buyouts, a lot of people use illogical arguments such as “the Chinese are buying, they must be on to something” or “do you actually think the buy...

Reseller Market Demand for Generics? Bill Sweetman wrote a very interesting piece about what end users want and one worders for example are at the top of his list. Generics in general are leading the way, with 68% based on his data.
But what about the reseller market?
Well, things aren’t as rosy I’m afraid.
Compared to short domains, there’s ridiculou...

Sedo Auctions Aren’t Worth It IMO I’m sorry but they just aren’t in my opinion, definitely not at the 15% commission level.
Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind paying 15% if the service is worth it. If I can only sell a domain for $1,000 and you can obtain $2,000 for it, I’d gladly pay you 15% because even after
