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

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...

The Submission Window for the Next Heritate Auctions Event Closes Tomorrow I’ve submitted three one-word domains and a couple of two-worders for the HA San Francisco auction which will take place on the 19th of April a few moments ago, just thought I’d let you guys know that you can only submit inventory today and tomorrow.
I think Aron Meystedt will go a very good job at
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
