How to turn an unsuccessful domain sale to your benefit
On a given day of the week, I receive numerous inquiries for domains in my portfolio, even on weekends; the needs of people and companies for a domain representing their brand never stops. Not every inquiry turns into a sale, and conversion rates fluctuate during the year, depending on various parameters. There is one thing […]

Numbers and figures : The psychology of domain bidding
Bidding on domain names in public – or private – auctions, is a process that requires certain elements to be present, as part of a successful strategy. To begin with, domains that are promoted extensively or prominently, most often don’t fall in the “great deal” category. They are simply chosen per the i...

GoDaddy expired domains : Why the long wait after payment?
Recently, I renewed my trust in GoDaddy and it’s all thanks to the hard work of Joe Styler, who has been assisting with a lot of the issues I addressed last year. First and foremost, Joe’s patience, demeanor and ethics project sainthood; I am fully aware of the gravity of the word, and it’s not […]

You think WHOIS privacy deters domain theft attempts ? Think again.
The current counter-argument that domains with WHOIS shield on are protected from theft, is outright weak. While the privacy of a registrant’s info is much more respected outside of the US and the original com/net/org triad of TLDs, there is a false perception that by masking that information a domain is safer. ICANN mandates t...

A domain Escrow process for non-profits : Autism.Rocks aftershocks
It seems that the domain community is “up in arms” about the way the sale of Autism.Rocks was handled by Sedo. Fact-checking isn’t always the norm in the domainer village, and Sedo was quickly demonized over their 15% sales fee charge instead of a 3% escrow charge. A lot of “hindsight 20/20” statements a...

Responding to Domain Name Sales inquiries can be a challenge at times
Not all inquiries at Domain Name Sales lead to a positive, constructive exchange. Let’s face it: every impersonal communication can deviate from the rules and principles of “in person” exchange. The use of email can trigger responses that can be misconstrued by either party, thus leading to an escalating exchange th...

Are all “big cheese” domainers trustworthy?
About a month ago I placed a private offer on a domain at Flippa that triggered my interest, after missing the end of the auction by mere seconds. The offer was for a few hundred dollars, and the seller was seeking more than twice that amount. I could not justify such a price and countered […]

Sweet Captcha : WordPress plugin spread ads serving malware
A year ago I raved over the discovery of Sweet Captcha, a free captcha plugin for WordPress. At the time, and until yesterday, the plugin appeared to do its task quietly, blocking thousands of spam comments on my blog publications. Unfortunately, since at least Sunday, Sweet Captcha has been quietly serving pop-ups and pop-unders to ...

You can still get great domains at the forums
Having just sold a .ORG domain for three times the amount of a recently acquired, aged .COM, I can honestly say: you can still get great domains at the forums. Whether you’re after a brandable domain or a generic, domain forums such as DNForum and NamePros offer the opportunity to discover domain gems. While most […]

How a DNForum domain acquisition led to a 9000X ROI
When I say that I hold domain names long term, I mean it. Domain flipping is the surest path to losing money. A domain name acquisition from 2009 has just transformed into an almost five figure sale, and the completed exchange is yet another example of my decision to trust my gut feeling. Six years […]

Flippa and the ever-shifting domain BIN price
A few weeks ago, I noted how most active domain auction venues lack one thing in common: the ability to display the annual cost for renewing the domain. Kevin Fink was the only one that contacted me privately on the matter, to assure me that Flippa takes notice and many improvements are slated ahead. That’s […]

Why I don’t appreciate third party brokers barging in
In this industry we pretty much know each other, thanks to its structure and relatively small size.

Grandmothers are twice the mother one has; they possess the love, patience and understanding distilled through the experience of an extra generation. Not to discount one’s love for their mother, but today’s Mother’s Day celebration clearly deserves to be expanded, including grandmothers as well. My own two grandmoth...

Give the domain buyer a piece of your mind
Negotiations that rely on the domain buyer’s commitment to establish credibility of their interest, can often lead to a non-sale. When a buyer displays interest, or even seems to understand the requirements set forth by the seller and yet does not commit to a timeframe, the process is doomed to fail. As I’ve said recently...

Oops! Wrong email : My first ever domain sale was an accident
When responding to emails, or composing a new email, one has to be careful about the recipient’s address being correct.

Sending an email to the wrong recipient can be embarrassing, but it can also [̷...

Nothing is more precious than time. It’s the one thing that eventually runs out, and we need to be in constant control of, doing the things we like, need and want.

Not every negotiation on a domain is straight-forward; if things were easy, everyone would be doing it. Sometimes the seller appears to be more aggressive than they are expected to be. Your goal, as the seller, is to maintain communication until you are absolutely certain the other party is not willing to accept your terms. […]
