Throwback Thursday – One Commenter’s Cogent Corrective To A Blogger’s ‘Cybersquatter’ Rant
While cleaning out an inbox the other day I somehow came across a link to a blog post from four years ago, titled, Domain-squatter parasites not interested in haggling, apparently.

The Yin to the Yang of Domain Sales
Although it isn’t a regular column to this blog, consider this my weekend musings, if you will.  The following are some thoughts I was having a moment ago while giving my head and beard a quick trim for the coming week. Several days ago I caught a post on Abdul Basit’s blog, New Year Starts […]Related Posts:Francois...

Moniker Exiting the Drop Game?
One of the company’s drop-catching proxy registrars SantiamDomains recently (and quietly) changed hands and is now under Web.com’s ownership. This article is purely speculative, but it’s based on something that I learned today while troubleshooting some domain administration issues. A domain that I had caught at Sna...

Will WordPress Acquire and Use Word.Press?
.Press is open for landrush registration as of today, August 26th.  It will be interesting to see who turns up as the owner of Word.Press, provided the name is not being held back by the registry. If it turns out to be WordPress themselves, and they actually do something with the domain, such a move […]Related Posts:Some Web Ho...

2012.com Finally Changes Hands
Back in 2010, I covered the domain 2012.com, which had been sitting idly for years without resolving.  The owner had been adamant that, “this domain is not for sale. Please do not call.

Why Do You Bid So Early On Go Daddy Expired Domain Auctions?
There are a lot of reasons I can think of that one might want to bid on a Go Daddy expiring auction more than 7 to 10 days in advance of the end date, and absolutely none of them make sense. Following is a poll to see if we can get to the bottom of […]Related Posts:Update: 25.com No Longer At Auction on CAXShort List Of One-Wor...

Ching.com Flipped For Profit After 6 Months
Bought on Namejet this past January, the domain Ching.com was resold in Sedo’s GreatDomains auction which closed last Thursday. While eyeballing a domain at Sedo’s latest monthly GreatDomains auction which closed this past Thursday, another domain, Ching.com caught my eye because I knew I had seen it before in the not too...

Pending Delete Domain Assigned the Wrong Drop Date At Namejet Today
This morning I was going to put in a back order at Namejet for AppDevelopment.org, a domain that I believed to be dropping from the registry today. When I headed over to Namejet to register the back order, I was surprised to see that there was (and still is) a day left until closing time, […]Related Posts:Ching.com Flipped For ...
