Internet Anger Management Idea: Restart Your Computer Had a pretty bad day in the offline world but fortunately, I’ve developed a nice way of getting bad days out of my “system” as time passed. Sometimes I go for a walk, sometimes I choose another activity that makes me happy. The absolute worst thing you can do (in my opinion) is “confront...

Should You Develop Domains Yourself? In my opinion, there are two possibilities. If development is something you’re good at or passionate about then sure, go ahead. If not however, then you’re better off letting those who are do it for you. At the end of the day, it’s all a matter of crunching some numbers.
For example, a 500-word article costs

“I’ll Just Contact the End User Later On If I Change My Mind” This is a dangerous approach in my opinion and at least based on my experience, one with relatively poor results. A lot of domainers make the mistake of thinking that an end user who is motivated to buy today will still be interested in the future.
In other words, they end up thinking that since they’re

The “Legendary Domainer Portfolio” Paradox As we all know, “legendary domainers” or in other words the domain investors everyone knows about own some amazing gems, no question about that. However, I’ve noticed an interesting paradox when it comes to their portfolios. Yes, they own some truly amazing gems but on the other hand, they have considerably more low...

Happy Easter! I’m an Orthodox Christian but this year, Catholic Christians are celebrating Easter on the same day (this doesn’t always happen, sometimes the dates coincide but sometimes they differ), so I’d like to take advantage of this opportunity to wish everyone all the best.
Happy Easter guys!

Why Do So Few Domainers/Investors Think About Humility? I’ve noticed an interesting thing about domainers or to take things one step further, investors in general. Most of them seem to think they can predict the future and if their ego got a boost after being right in the past… watch out
In my opinion, your ego is the #1 enemy you have

(Almost) Nobody Is Unbiased The debates are beginning to heat up when it comes to new gTLDs and during such debates, a lot of domainers are unfortunately using strong words without realizing that they’re far from objective when it comes to the matter at hand.
Let’s be honest, almost nobody is unbiased.
All of us have more or less hidden agendas,

New gTLDs Will Affect *All* Portfolio Owners Now sure, the “super premiums” probably won’t be affected but let’s be honest, not even the best domainers have portfolios that consist only of amazing domains. Pretty much everyone has “so-so” domains and it’s precisely those domains that will be affected by new gTLDs.
Let me explain why.

Which Domain(s) Should You Develop? When I announced the launch of MegaSites.com yesterday (the actual launch took place in 2013 but wasn’t public, I basically limited myself to a few pilot projects to test the concept), I made it clear that developing small websites is *not* a viable long-term business model in 2014 and beyond. As some of you who have been around for ...

Case Study #5: MegaSites.com (My New Development Project) As you know, I’ve done a case study about each newly launched project and MegaSites.com won’t represent an exception.

Quick Friday Tip: Start Using Two Screens Your initial reaction might be something along the lines of “Why do I need *two* screens?” and it’s understandable, I had a similar one but after I started using two screens, I never looked back.

Economic Difficulties Despite Innovation? As domainers, we know perhaps more than almost anyone else just how important the appearance of the Internet is to humanity. I think it’s reasonable to compare the Internet to let’s say the car in terms of impact. The car eliminated a lot of physical boundaries by allowing us to travel much faster, whereas the

4 Possible “Dot Com vs. New gTLDs” Scenarios – Which One Did You Choose? At the end of the day, I think the situation is relatively straightforward. There are 4 possible new gTLD scenarios or actually just three because one of them has two ramifications:

It Takes Just as Much Effort to Close a Large Sale Domainers hear this statement from successful investors time and time again, yet I don’t think most of them give it too much thought.
