Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 38 I’ve never sold chips via Sedo yet here I am, now selling my top 3 LLLLs through them at no reserve as an experiment: DFBF.com, MTRR.com and JJRQ.com.
I’m selling them at Sedo’s GreatDomains event, the auctions started yesterday and will end on Thursday, so in about 6 days.
All three domains are “no reserve...

Sedo GreatDomains April Just Started! Sedo has some very juicy short domains this month, several of them at no reserve. I’ll focus on the short domains since everyone’s paying attention to this category now. On the one hand, prices have dropped this year but on the other hand, something interesting happened yesterday, with huge price jumps across the board (o...

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 37 I’ve priced PDKD.com for a very quick sale this week, just $1,499 and am selling it on a “first come, first served” basis. This has got to be my shortest newsletter ever and this is a good thing in my opinion. I find myself getting straight to the point more and more often lately, saves
Will Domains Always Remain Risk Assets? As the 2007-2008 Global Financial Crisis (aka The Great Recession) taught us, domains are currently risk assets. In other words, if the economy crashes, domains will crash too.
Will things always stay this way?
To answer this question, we need to understand some basic human psychology.
An economic crash such as the 07-08 one makes p...

To Which Extent Can Big Players Manipulate the Short Domain Market? There are definitely some *very* deep pocketed players in the short domain market and without a doubt, their actions can and do influence the entire short domain space… but to which extent?
The short domain market is ridiculously small compared to other asset classes so sure, it is considerably more prone to volatility. If some...

eName Really (Really, Really) Sucks I will never ever understand why people keep domains there.
They’re slow to respond, they make moving domains out a hassle and last but certainly not least, they’re uncooperative when it comes to stolen domains, as documented on several occasions on various blogs/forums.
I honestly don’t get why people use this com...
Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 36 If you’re a chip buyer, I have some ridiculous bargains for you today (DFBF.com and MTRR.com at $1,799 each, JJRQ.com at $1,599 each). I genuinely have no idea what will happen next with short domains, I avoid making predictions because I just don’t know. Nobody does. Maybe chips will go to $10,000 each. Maybe they’...

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 35 Time for another NamePros no reserve auction experiment and this time, I listed a considerably better CHIP than the one I auctioned last week. I decided to auction a CHIP with repeating letters, FQRR.com, at no reserve.
The high bid is only $1,250 at the moment of writing and the auction will end once there are

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 34 4 ridiculous bargains on today’s newsletter, all of them CHIP (Chinese premium) LLLL.coms but not just random chips. Two of them are also Western premiums and all 4 have repeating letters, I always preferred higher quality chips and my inventory reflects that.
Here’s the full text of the newsletter and as always, the dom...
Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 33 I’m sure you’re surprised to see a case study post on a Tuesday but I thought I’d try an interesting experiment by selling a CHIP (YRTF.com) as well as a regular LLLL (TFXV.com) through no reserve NamePros auctions. I’ve sold regular LLLLs like this before but never chips. Not sure if this has ever been

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 32 This has to be the shortest newsletter I’ve ever sent and I’ve asked people to make me their best offer for a *really* good chip (FQRR.com), with each person only getting one chance to make the offer in question (no negotiations). Should be interesting, people hate wasting time and by getting right down to business,

NOBODY Can Predict the Future I love it how most people think the future can be predicted in an accurate and consistent manner, from Average Joes who consider themselves experts after reading a few articles on the Interwebs to PhDs who think their models are the best thing since sliced bread.
“But… but Joe Psychic correctly predicted X, Y and Z”...
Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 31 Really good deals today, final price reductions on 5 premium LLLL dot coms (DFBF.com, MTRR.com, JJRQ.com, LLYP.com and YRTF.com) and 4 regular LLLLs (TFXV.com, MFXV.com, KVDZ.com, MKVZ.com – $325), I’m sure bargain hunters will be very happy with this week’s newsletter
As always, here’s the full text of the newslet...

You’re the ONLY One Responsible for Your Decisions Shane wrote about some of the hate messages and even threats he’s been receiving lately and it makes me sick to my stomach. No matter how strongly you disagree with someone, resorting to hate comments and/or threats is low.
Maybe you disagree with him writing about .ws investments for example, that’s fine...

It’s Hard to Be a Domaining Newbie in 2016 Short domains have been a blessing for our industry but from certain perspectives, also a curse.
They have helped companies such as Sedo which were on a clear downward slope as reseller market venues come back to life.
They helped lots of people make lots of money directly, by buying and selling short domains.
They have helped lots

DN.com Not Re-Opening for the Time Being According to a recent email they’ve sent, DN.com will be closed for a few more days. Their exact wording is “several days more” and “several” is pretty strong wording but since the people behind the escrow service are from China, it might just be a language barrier thing, perhaps they didn’t use ...

Anomaly Is the New Status Quo At first, I have to admit I didn’t “get” short domains. Quite frankly, I still don’t get numerics for example from an end user perspective.
But as time passed, I realized it doesn’t matter what I “get” or what I “want”, it all boils down to what the market wants.
And the market w...
Dear DN.com, WTF? Seriously, WTF? As a lot of you have noticed by now, DN.com is down. Down as in literally down, “Can’t reach this page” message and all that good stuff. No “We are undergoing maintenance” template, no explanation page, nothing.
This is beyond ridiculous/unprofessional and it’s things like this which make it clear...
