Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 18 This week, we’re switching back to priced domains due to the fact that I’m selling five domains (HGHP.com, MBKB.com, NFSX.com, ZQYX.com and EUPN.com) and that’s a bit too much for the “make your best offer” approach I’ve tried over the past month or so.
Here’s today’s full newsletter (...
Domains You No Longer Own Still Appearing in Your Account One of the things that bug me about registrars is that even in 2015, the “domain I no longer own still appearing in my account” problem still appears with certain companies. It’s very frustrating to see domains that you now are no longer in your possession appearing in your account.
Personally, this tends to reduce...

The Fed Rate Hike and… Domains? Not sure how many of you guys are on top of financial news but something pretty significant happened: after 7 years of rates basically at zero as a response to the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis, the Federal Reserve (the central bank of the United States) increased rates by 0.25%.
Now, sure, we’re only talking about 25

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 2 Last month, I told you guys about a new project I started: explaining important economics-related concepts through entertaining one-minute YouTube videos.
I started by publishing two videos: one about inflation and one about deflation.
The inflation one currently has 165 views, whereas the deflation video has about 3 times more, 529...

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 17 Really love the letter combo’s of the LLLLs which are being sold through today’s newsletter: HPHR.com + MTRB.com + MPWR.com.
They’ll be sold using the same approach I’ve been using over the past few weeks, with people only being allowed to contact me once with an offer. No back-and-forth negotiations.

Domaining Bloopers :) We’re ashamed of them, we may try to forget about them but the fact remains that we still screwed up… let’s share some domaining bloopers today guys!

A while ago, someone bought some domains from me. We’re both active domainers and kind of...
A Strong Dollar = A Blessing for European Domainers … and for domainers from other countries who get paid in dollars and who are seeing their local currency fall against the USD.
I’ve “complained” about the fact that a strong Euro sucks for European domainers on more than one occasion and am very pleased by the fact that over the past few months, the Dollar

Money Isn’t Everything or The Hidden Costs of Domaining First of all, I’d like to congratulate Mike as well as GoDaddy on the sale, deals like this one are great for the industry IMO.
I’m happy Mike dramatically reduced his daily stress level and this brings me to one of the things people don’t talk about very often: the hidden costs of domaining or

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 16 Trying an interesting experiment today: I’m offering 4 premium LLLLs (LSBC.com, FLKX.com, KMQN.com and YKRM.com) and will be using the same “only one offer per person” principle that I usually go with when I’m selling one domain. People only get to send me one email through which they make an offer. It can be ...
When Will Inflation Become a Real Concern? It’s no secret that as a response to the 2007-2008 financial crisis, central banks have been pumping money into the economy like crazy, yet there haven’t been any real inflation problems up until this point. In the United States for example, base money went up about 4 times, from 800-ish billion to 3.2 TRILLION.

Who Would Have the Most to Lose If a New gTLD “Goes Dark” … except for the registry, of course
Frank Schilling posted an honest + interesting comment on to a DomainIncite post and in my opinion, domainers need to realize that yes, a *lot* of new gTLDS will fail. A lot.
Now, obviously, the registry would be the biggest loser.
And not just when it comes to the

You Don’t Know. Deal With It. If you’re following the various short domain-related discussions out there, you’ll notice most domainers think they have it all figured out.
Some say Chinese Premium LLLL.coms will hit $10k next year. Or $25k. Or more.
Others say they’ll go back down to $1,000. Or $100. Or regfee.
The human brain is nothing short o...

Best Non-New-gTLD Black Friday Deals for Domainers? Earlier today, Konstantinos posted about the Black Friday deals he came across but unfortunately, most of them are for new gTLDs.
This is consistent with my findings as well, most of the deals I’ve come across are also related to new gTLDs.
As someone who doesn’t want to invest in new g’s, they are of no interest
