Uniregistry : Sequential WHOIS shield emails attract unscrupulous spammers
I never had any issues with Uniregistry that were not dealt with swiftly. As part of a group of people that beta-tested the domain registry platform before its launch, I assisted with the initial round of debugging its processes. As a systems analyst and UX professional, I made suggestions about the flow and presentation of […]

Verify domain ownership before placing a bid on a domain auction
I’m an impulsive domain buyer, and I’ve made that clear in every venue or domain forum that I participate at. When a great deal is presented, time is often of the essence. As much as one must seize an opportunity, the associated risk can be costly. Imagine bidding on, and winning a domain auction or […]

Adobe Photoshop is now 25 years old
Adobe Photoshop ranks among the most widely used graphics applications in the world, and is an industry standard tool for graphic designers. Officially rolled out as a commercial application for the Macintosh on February 19, 1990, Photoshop is now 25 years old. I first saw version 2.5 at the DTP department of a computer magazine [...

Should rogue domain registrars be isolated?
Andrew Allemann made an interesting point today, at Domain Name Wire, in reference to the popularity of the Chinese domain registrar, Ename, with domain thieves. “[…] registrars should add an internal security check for transfers to eName. At a minimum, they should enforce the five day transfer waiting period to inspect a...

Domain ownership and theft: Will ICANN remain antiquated, slow and bureaucratic?
In October 2014, before the ICANN51 conference in Los Angeles, I implored ICANN officials to include the topic of domain ownership redefinition in their agenda. Facing a dramatic surge in domain theft throughout 2014, that article outlined the reasons that domain ownership must be redefined, and stated that a digital certificate of d...

Perfect numbers revisited Part Deux: 360 and 100
I’ve followed the seemingly cryptic obsession of the Chinese for Arabic numerals for years. Around 2002, at a time that I was investing in short LLN and LNN .com domains that were available to register en masse, a very smart domainer lady shared with me the information that seems to be less of a secret […]

A press release is not a rehash of your blog post
Press releases are official statements announcing a milestone, an accomplishment, or an upcoming change about a company. As such, they serve as a public announcement aimed at disclosing information to the media and the consumer of the industry they target. Press releases follow a format that carries the date and location of the event...

Don’t let employees manage your domains
When you run a business, your assets include domain names; unlike tangible assets, domain names need special care. Keeping track of your asset inventory should extend to domain names as well. If you are in a business partnership, make sure that the assets are recorded and there is a clear method that defines their current […]

Greek Elections: I Cannot Vote .org
Greece is having crucial national elections today, the results of which some say might shock the European Union’s economy, once again. In Greece, where democracy was established two and a half millennia ago, the right to vote has been both a privilege and an obligation, reserved for the Greek citizens aged 18 and above. As [...

Never set a BIN price for your domain names
Selling your domain names on a venue with a fixed, “BIN” price opens up a can of worms. Not only you’re disclosing the price to the public, particularly on Sedo, but you’re also risking getting much less money that what the domain might be worth. Setting a BIN price supposedly generates more sales that close [...

Why NamesCon did not happen in 2004
My telecom background allowed me to participate in large industry conferences, in the 1990s and early 2000s. As an employee of corporations and start-ups, I was on the flip side of the conference participants, that of an exhibit staffer. Having to interact with thousands of people at a time, was a task that allowed me […]

Three days ago I described my experience with the GoDaddy “Domain Buy Offer” service, outlining the process and how smoothly it went.

Registrars taking the spamming route
As if domainer spammers were not enough, domain registrars peddling new, exotic gTLDs are becoming more brazen in their approach. With several hundred new gTLDs currently live, some registrars blindly send out announcements about the availability of extensions without any apparent opt-in or otherwise targeted mechanism.
