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...

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 7 Time for video #8, this time about investing in stocks. A lot of people still don’t understand what stocks are all about and what their status is as someone who owns stocks.
What a share actually represents, what dividends are and all that.
In my opinion, everyone should pay attention to what’s happening in the world of
Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 29 I’m selling 17 LLLL dot coms this week and after last week’s experiment (listing only one LLLL and several names which don’t fall into the “short domains” category), it’s clear to me people pretty much only want short domains at this point. The LLLL has been sold, the others haven’t. The mark...

Sedo Numeric Domain Auctions Ending Today If you are buying 4N, 5N and 6N dot coms, you’ll most likely find the Sedo auctions which are ending today (approximately 4 hours and 45 minutes left at the moment of writing) interesting.
Short domains have without a doubt contributed to a bit of a “rebirth” of Sedo, a company which wasn’t exactly on the

DomainingTips.com Is 8 Years Old! Time sure does fly!
On the 31st of January 2008, the previous owner of DomainingTips published the first post and approximately 18 months later, I bought the blog from him and embarked on a journey I was very excited about. The rest, as they say, is history

Sedo GreatDomains Auctions Ending Tomorrow This month’s GreatDomains auctions will end tomorrow, there are approximately 23 hours left at the moment of writing. Very balanced inventory in my opinion and most of the domains have bids at the moment of writing (only 26 out of 92 domains don’t have bids yet), this is what you get if you give the

Will I Be Using Escrow.com’s Concierge Service? A lot of people have been waiting for this feature and I’m glad Escrow.com will be offering it as of this point.
If you don’t know what the concierge service is all about, here’s a short explanation: up until this point, Escrow.com did not take possession of the domain at all. In other words, the buyer

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 27 In my opinion (biased, of course), the DomainingTips newsletter represents the best venue at which you can buy really good Chinese Premium LLLL.coms. This week, for example, I have HGHP.com (Chinese + Western premium, repeating H), NCNP.com (Chinese + Western premium, repeating N), GMCP.com (Chinese + Western premium), NRKK.com (endi...

Sedo GreatDomains February Started Today I kind of like the current Sedo GreatDomains approach: not a lot of domains, low reserves and assets the market wants (lots of short domains). Makes perfect sense. Sure, an event sounds a lot more extravagant if you include blockbuster domains such as “Printer.com” or whatever but if the reserves would be way too high

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 6 I’ve published my 7th YouTube video about two hours ago and for the first time, I’ve explained two things rather than just one: the Gross Domestic Product (aka GDP) on the one hand and government revenue on the other.
I’ve done this because people veeeeeeeeeeeery frequently confuse these two terms.

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 25 When it comes to LLLL dot coms, this much is certain: nobody knows anything and the price increase of premium LLLLs over the past week (up 10% – 15%) proves just that. Due to the Chinese New Year, most people expected activity to slow down substantially but the exact opposite happened. Prices went up, activity
Dear GoDaddy, Please Fix Your Whois Bug Already! I’ve noticed this for several months: I transfer a domain from its current registrar to GoDaddy but after the transfer has been finalized, the whois info isn’t updated. In other words, the domain keeps the old whois info.
This doesn’t make sense.
Let’s assume you buy a domain from someone and transfer it from...
