Is Verisign’s Dot Web Purchase the Final Nail in the New gTLD Coffin? Will .Web end up being the most successful new gTLD? Perhaps, perhaps not. It all depends on how we define “successful” I guess. I can tell you right now that if we choose to see things from a “which new G has the most registrations?” perspective, it definitely won’t be #1. Not by a long

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 11 (1,000+ Subscribers!) Well, it’s been a while since I’ve written an update about my One Minute Economics YouTube channel and I’m pleased to say that the channel now has more than 1,000 subscribers (about 1,200 at the moment of writing)
At this point, I try to stick to a bi-weekly posting schedule by publishing one video

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 46 I usually keep my newsletter “business only” but today, aside from asking people to make offers on the domains I’m putting on the table (RRRU.com, Articles.biz, Obituarist.com, Reciprocations.com, MegaSites.com, BillionDollarMedia.com and CAQY.com), I’m also offering a few free copies of the book I’ve be...
I Will Answer One Question Thoroughly If you guys want to pick my brain, now’s the chance to do it: I will answer one question you have for me thoroughly and privately.
Some of you might want to ask me something about issues you wouldn’t like others to know about (your current business model, a future project idea and so on), so

$40-$50 Renewals? Seriously? I don’t want to be a “perma-naysayer” when it comes to new gTLDs but a lot of things about them leave me scratching my head… to put it mildly.
Here on DomainingTips, the #1 question I want to answer is not “Are new gTLDs a good option?” but rather “Are new gTLDs a good option FOR

Can we fight against non-linear terrorism using linear thinking? Like all of you, I’m shocked by the increasing frequency of terrorist attacks, the most recent one being in Nice. We humans are problem solvers and, naturally, once you get over the shock of the news, you cannot help but ask yourself: what can be done?
I know this is a domaining blog but first and
Why Risk Your Money When the Odds Are Stacked Against You?!? Look, I don’t mind taking risks. In fact, as an entrepreneur and investor, you could say I take calculated risks for a living.
But when it comes to new gTLDs, I just don’t understand the equation. Why on Earth do people invest in them when there are lots and lots of more attractive investment options out

Enom, NameCheap, Moniker and Others DESPERATELY Need a Safer Push System The current push system these companies (these three were the first I thought of, there may very well be several more) have is, quite frankly, nothing short of dangerous.
Why? Simply because only ONE field must be entered for a push to take place.
For Enom, you enter the recipient’s ID when pushing and bam, that’s it.
Want My Honest Opinion About Your Domaining Strategy? I’ve offered to analyze people’s portfolios every now and then on DomainingTips but I’ve never analyzed the domaining strategy of my readers. In other words, I’ve never had readers tell me about what they currently do or intend to do to make money via domaining, then share my two cents.
Time to change that!

For those of you that don’t know yet, it’s basically a channel through which I teach people economics via entertaining (I hope!) one-minute animations.
Well, thanks to yesterday’s video about pyr...

Happy 4th of July! Happy 4th of July to all of my US readers!
I have to admit, I’ve never been into patriotic stuff all that much (mostly because I don’t understand expressions such as “I’m proud to be a citizen of /Insert Country Name/”… most people have simply been born in the country they currently live in, itR...
The Short Domain Situation Is What It Is Whenever there’s as much money on the table as with short domains, a lot of people try to manipulate you. Through blog comments, when posting on forums and so on.
The easiest way to identify someone who is trying to manipulate, at this point, is seeing him or her say things such as “short domains are

Let’s Talk About the Brexit and Its Long-Term Implications for a Moment Yes, I know this is a domaining blog but today, I’d like to refrain from talking about five number dot horse domains and cover perhaps the most important historic event of the 21st century so far: the fact that in the United Kingdom, citizens have voted to leave the European Union.
First of all, for those

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.
