NameJet works great as a domain selling venue
I’ve recently listed and sold a small group of quality domain names on NameJet, utilizing their public auction venue. I’m very happy with the results, and for having the ability to follow the ongoing auction live, through the NameJet system. It can be entertaining as well. 😀 The way it works: An agreement is signed [R...

Domain auctions : Prompt support from NameJet
I’ve been a member of NameJet since 2007, having spent a pretty dollar acquiring premium domains in the secondary market. My primary focus has been that of aged, .com domains that are dictionary words, two word composites and brandables. I don’t discount .net and .org domains, they hold their reselling potential well. Dom...

Domain inquiries : Not every CEO is an “arsehole,” but this one is
A startup I worked for many moons ago, thrived on the firecracker personality of its CEO, a Kiwi expatriate. The guy was highly demanding, but was also a good listener that could tell BS and well-documented arguments apart. It wasn’t random that despite several rounds of layoffs, I remained with the company until its final [...

Branding : You dictate a domain’s worth, not the market
Unique products are often touted as overpriced, expensive, outlandish – and every other epithet available to describe a high monetary value in a negative manner. And yet, it’s the uniqueness of such products that defines their value and price. There are very few things more unique than domain names, and as far as digital ...

Lucky strike : How I beat user ‘First’ on a NameJet domain auction
This past week has been outstanding, both for the number of sales and the results of domain acquisitions I achieved. While no personal records were set, it’s still a representation of a healthy year almost halfway already. Domaining is far from dead, as long as one’s domain portfolio is diversified. Domain sales have been...

Domain inquiries : Will dot .Blog will be the end of lowball offers?
As a domain investor with an aged portfolio of both generic and two word compound domains, I receive a fair share of inquiries that are lowballs. These blatant attempts at getting a domain for an unrealistically low price are ignored, but still quite annoying. A type of domain inquiry similar to the “poor student” variety...

Domain offers : Europeans, commas and periods in quotes
For more than 25 years I was raised, educated and trained to use the metric system, that French invention that uses meters, kilograms and the centigrade scale. For the past 20 years or so, I’ve adapted – for the most part – to the imperial system here in the US. I still feel more comfortable […]

Domain security : All registrars should implement this feature by 101Domain
When it comes down to securing your domain names, one method is not enough. Domain theft is rampant, and the current structure of the reclaiming process puts the onus on the victim. In other words, it’s best not to have to deal with a domain theft incident to begin with. Two factor authentication is the […]

Did DomainTools grow too big for the domain industry?
Twenty years ago, I “enjoyed” querying the web portal of Network Solutions for the availability of domain names that popped in my head, and watch them getting registered two weeks later. Those were the days of “data trading” to key players in the domain market. The practice continued until the end of the monop...

Domain sales : Push the right buttons of your potential buyer
To convert a domain inquiry into a sale, there are certain key elements that must be taken care of. It’s not just a matter of pricing the domain right, and in accordance to market conditions. Many inquiries lead nowhere, at least temporarily, simply because the buyer is unwilling to make such an acquisition, being unfamiliar [&...

Domains, branding and the corporate smell of the 1980’s
In the 80’s I collected corporate annual reports on offer via the Fortune 500 and Businessweek publications. I simply ticked off every checkbox on those coupons, and a few weeks later, glossy booklets arrived at my doorstep. My postman must have hated me, as the collective weight of those reports I’d get for free, week [&...

Domain inquiries : The two-spear attack and how to win it
Having closed on yet another five figure domain sale, I’m confident with discussing an incoming inquiry strategy, and how to win it. The “two-spear attack” is an attempt to get a domain, facilitated by the same party by submitting two offers of varied size. It can most definitely be extended to accommodate additiona...

Domain offers : A twist on the proverbial “poor student” inquiry
The practice of making offers for domain names, under the guise of being someone else, isn’t new. Domain investing presents opportunities that can be exceptionally rewarding. There is competition in the market, and there are only so many good names available. In the mid 2000’s, many LLL .com domains were sold to investors...

Domain sales : Single transactions versus “lease to own”
Domain inquiries often quote the cost of a domain as a reason that the sale cannot go forward. While direct sales in a single transaction is what I’m personally after, there are times to consider a “lease to own” option. There are a couple of ways to leverage the particulars of such a domain sale: […]

An important task of a domain investor, is the evaluation of incoming inquiries and the subsequent response to them.
