Liquid domains : The best deal might not be the fastest
Domain liquidity is the ability to convert digital assets into currency, quickly and without much hassle. Whether this title applies to domains used as “coinage” for years, such as LLL .coms, brandables or dictionary domains, one thing really matters: getting the cash you need. Underselling one’s assets makes little...

Trader feedback : Important feature of domain marketplaces
One thing I miss from the days of using Sedo to sell domains, is their trader feedback indicators. While not perfect, the Sedo method of displaying a potential buyer’s activity status helped a lot determining their “worthiness.” To a degree, the Sedo system makes up for the lack of important intel related to the buy...

Had any LLLL .com domains? Prepare to be spammed for a long time
The good news: Long term holders of LLLL .com domains are seeing their investments appreciate, as throngs of – allegedly – Chinese domain investors are snapping up these assets. The bad news: Someone ran a WHOIS of all LLLL .com permutations, and has been sharing the database. What this means: Even if you sell, or […...

Domain brokering: It’s a dog eat dog world
I’ve been following the proliferation of professional domain brokerage establishments for several years, and have arrived to the following conclusion: It’s a cut-throat business, and a ‘dog eat dog’ world. During the previous decade, the focus shifted from domain selling venues, to aggressive acquisitions and ...

Kudos to Sedo for their Chinese domain market awareness
Despite having moved all my domains out of Sedo three years ago, I still buy domains at their marketplace. Recently, I completed an acquisition of a generic domain via Sedo, from domains in their owned inventory. Curious about what other domains they are offering, I was able to locate several LLLL .com domains, one of […]

Huge domain sales : Are they good for the domain industry?
Domain investors probably had palpitations earlier today, after the uncovering by George Kirikos of a huge domain sale. The “lease to own” sale of for the astronomical amount of $90 million dollars, stirred the otherwise relaxed waters on a Friday morning. Such domain sales are quite rare, but they do occur w...

ICANN needs to control gTLD domain Registries that spam
ICANN has been making a nice $185,000 dollars from every gTLD applicant, and the gift keeps on giving every year thereafter. I expressed my support for the expansion of the Internet namespace, ever since it went into effect, believing in meaningful keyword+gTLD pairs that offer a great service to consumers. That being said, I detest ...

Would you sell your premium domain for alcohol and chocolates?
It’s been almost three years since I started using Domain Name Sales, and after hundreds of domain inquiries, this one wins a special prize.

Two people, one company : A fun negotiation technique
It’s not rare for inquiries to arrive in waves, for the same domain name. Perhaps the domain became popular overnight thanks to the news, or a technological breakthrough.

Addressing the elephant in the room
After processing the shocking allegations about Adam Dicker for two full weeks, it’s time to come up with a series of hard decisions. As an active – and sometimes overly vocal – member of the domain community, processing dozens of pages about Adam was a very difficult task for me. Knowing Adam for a decade […]

Bidding on domain auctions? Better check that trademark first
Expired domain auctions constitute a large portion of a smart domain investor’s focus. The main reason: domains are typically aged, and – in theory – belong to a pool of good domains that is running dryer with every new .com registration. Auction venues such as GoDaddy Auctions, Sedo, NameJet and Flippa provide the ...

How I first found out about
One of my early domain registrations was a four letter .com, I registered it on a “whim” in late 2000, while owning just a handful of other domains, because it was short and sounded edgy. At the time, I only pursued domain registrations as brand ideas only. There were very little resources about domains, […...

Greece : Capital controls and domain transactions
As a Greek investor and entrepreneur, a good portion of my domain portfolio is focused on Greek brands, names and geodomains. It’s not easy to relay the true essence of the Greek society and entrepreneurship, without it being distorted by the media. One thing is certain: there is plenty of capital in Greece, and a […]

You might be in possession of stolen domains
If you casually acquire domain names off lists, auctions or even domain investors beware: some of these domains might be stolen property.

If NameBright can do it, so should other domain registrars
Recently, I shared my frustration on the prolonged time it takes to confirm outgoing domain transfers away from NameCheap. While some blame the delays on the fact that NameCheap utilizes the back-end of eNom, from my understanding NameCheap is an ICANN-accredited domain registrar and no longer an eNom reseller. Either way, the proces...

One of the most frustrating characteristics of domain transfers, is the inability to expedite them to the gaining registrar.

Final thoughts on ‘liquid domains’
By now, the subject of so-called “liquid domains” has been covered ad nauseam. My recent position on the subject generated a lot of interesting commentary, for and against the existence of this domain genre. Personally, I believe that it’s a unicorn of sorts. Elliot’s blog featured a “free for all”...

In memoriam of 9/11 : From the ashes, new life rises
September 11 marks the haunting legacy of human loss, in an extensive act of terrorism that cost 3,000 human lives. Every year, memories of that day should become stronger, not weaker; they should become starting points for new beginnings, not the end of the line. This year also marks the first time since the 9/11 […]
