15 GoDaddy Discount Codes I’ll be sharing 15 GoDaddy discount codes with you guys today, 5 of them should work worldwide as opposed to only for people from the US/Canada and as far as the remaining 10 are concerned, I’m not sure. Also, one of the codes should work for up to three domains, not just one.

A Few New gTLD Development Considerations I’ll be developing a very strong one word new gTLD domain (Stocks.XYZ) soon as an experiment (I’ll turn it into a megasite with 100+ articles) and for the most part, there aren’t *huge* differences between developing a new gTLD and developing a dot com, a ccTLD or a legacy TLD domain.
There are however a few

Weird Week for New gTLDs … in a good *and* bad way. On the one hand, we finally have another new gTLD about which we can say that it did ok on its first day of General Availability: Dot Rocks, with 5,191 registrations.
On the other hand though, the other 6 extensions performed rather poorly and combined, generated less registrations than

Proactive End User Marketing for New gTLDs? I have to admit, I have no experience whatsoever in this respect and quite frankly, would imagine that it’s a reasonably tough sell.
Even when reaching out to end users when it comes to domains in “traditional” extensions, it’s still hard to convince them to pay a premium for a domain despite the fact that it’s in an extension the...

This Week’s New gTLD Launches Pretty busy week for new gTLDs, with two Landrush phases, four Early Access Program phases and seven General Availability phases.
Today, the Landrush phase for Dot NYC will start and aside from this situation, all of the “action” will take place on the 6th of August (in other words, on Wednesday).
Let’s start with W...

Consulting in Exchange for Charity Donations? I decided to start an interesting experiment as of today. If you are interested in my consulting services, I’m willing to help and in return, you have to make a donation to a noble cause.
I’ve never seen this concept put to good use before, so why not give it a try?
Seems like a win-win-win situation:

11 GoDaddy Discount Codes This week’s coupon list isn’t huge but the good news for those of you who aren’t from the US or Canada is that most of them (8 out of 11 discount codes) should work internationally. As far as the remaining 3 are concerned, I’m not sure.
One of them should bring the price down to $0.99,

The Potential Effects of Protectionism on the Internet and Domaining During times of economic turbulence, humans tend to do the weirdest things and protectionism is one of them. Instead of trying to innovate and actually increase trade, history has shown that a lot of times, the exact opposite happens and protectionism rears its ugly head.
In case you aren’t familiar with the concept, I’ll...

Very Strong Extensions, Mediocre Registration Numbers Was this the worst week ever in terms of registration numbers? No. After the first day of General Availability for 4 new gTLDs (. Reisen, .University, .Toys and .Town), the results were let’s call them mediocre. But what registry operators should be worried about is the fact that two of this week’s extensions are basicall...

Did You Get Any .Toys, .University, .Town or .Reisen Domains? 4 new gTLDs entered the General Availability phase today:
Dot Reisen (Reisen = “trips” in German)
My favorite is Dot Toys but I only got one: Safest.Toys
More and more parents are concerned about the safety issues associated with toys (where they’re made, whether or not the company making the to...

Using Email Templates When Replying to End Users Some end users don’t understand the concept of buying a premium domain, so you will occasionally have to educate them. Sometimes, they don’t even know how the transfer process works, so it will once again be time to help them and so on.
You will without a doubt deal with certain situations more than once, so

A Few Thoughts About End User Research If a random person and Bill Gates go to the supermarket, they will both pay the exact amount of money for let’s say bottled water. In other words, it’s not a “You’re Bill Gates and have a lot of money, so you have to pay more” situation.
Domains are different and I’ll try to explain why.

Next Week’s New gTLD Launches If I’m not mistaken, 4 new gTLDs will enter the General Availability phase next week and the Early Access Program will start for another 4 extensions.
As always, please take everything I say with a grain of salt because since most new gTLDs are extremely poorly promoted, I might have missed some. I do my best

New gTLD Scarcity Perspectives I asked you guys how many end user offers you’ve received for your new gTLDs thus far yesterday and Frank Schilling posted an interesting comment:
“This is a lot like that time in the early to mid 1990’s when many good names were gone but the com zone file was quite small. You would approach sellers

How Many New gTLD End User Offers Have You Received Thus Far? In my case, there is absolutely nothing to report when it comes to end user offers but then again, my new gTLD portfolio is quite small. Therefore, I’m hoping those of you with larger portfolios can chime in and let us know how things stand up until this point.
If possible, let us know how many

Reserved/Premium Domains – How Much Is Too Much? It’s been a while since I registered a new gTLD domain and it’s not because I didn’t like the extensions but rather because quite frankly, there was nothing much left for me to get.
Therefore, the following question arises: how much is too much?
As a domainer, I try to be rational and keep an open mind.
