Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 25 When it comes to LLLL dot coms, this much is certain: nobody knows anything and the price increase of premium LLLLs over the past week (up 10% – 15%) proves just that. Due to the Chinese New Year, most people expected activity to slow down substantially but the exact opposite happened. Prices went up, activity

Dear GoDaddy, Please Fix Your Whois Bug Already! I’ve noticed this for several months: I transfer a domain from its current registrar to GoDaddy but after the transfer has been finalized, the whois info isn’t updated. In other words, the domain keeps the old whois info.
This doesn’t make sense.
Let’s assume you buy a domain from someone and transfer it from...

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 5 My YouTube channel is chugging along nicely and I’ve published video #6, this time about how money works. It isn’t the most complex topic in the world, definitely considerably less complex than let’s say my fractional reserve banking video but not all videos have to be about something difficult to understand.

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 24 Some short domain investors prefer buying regular Chinese premium LLLLs, whereas others want special ones and are looking for things like repeating letters. Today, I have something for both categories and am once again selling LLLLs using the “make me your best offer” format.
HGHP.com and NCNP.com are gems for those who ...

Short Domains as a Hedge Against Currency Devaluation I live in Europe where we actually have a DEFLATION problem rather than inflation concerns but in a lot of other countries, especially in Asia and South America, currency devaluation is a huge, huge threat. In my opinion, the idea of protection against currency devaluation has perhaps been the main driver of short domain prices.

Domain Sales Newsletter Case Study – Part 23 Offering a really nice portfolio of premium LLLLs today, final price reductions, should be interesting. Can’t believe I’ve already sent 23 issues of my newsletter, it’s ridiculous how time flies haha.

OneMinuteEconomics.com Case Study – Part 4 Things seem to be on the right track with my YouTube channel (through which I explain important concepts through entertaining one-minute animations), with one of the 5 videos already at over 1,000 views.

NamesCon 2016 Extended Auction Underway The live event generated a little under $1,500,000 in sales, great result IMO. I watched the auctions but didn’t end up buying anything.
Just thought I’d let you guys know that the silent auction is currently underway over at NameJet, lots of domains are being auctioned and all of the auctions will end in approximately 8

Domaining and the Rat Race A significant percentage of the people I interact with, both online and offline, are workaholics. The more time passes, the more people seem to be entrenched in the proverbial rat race and this got me thinking about domaining as well as the idea of making money online in general.
Now sure, I for one have practically

Escrow.com Starts 2016 With New Features I’m pretty excited about the three new features Escrow.com started 2016 with. First and foremost (and this is something non-US domainers will certainly appreciate), they’ve expanded their office hours from 8 am – 4 pm to 8 am – 11 pm which is a huge improvement.
I live in Europe, GMT +2, and therefore always ...

Remember Kiva? Back in November 2012 (more than three years ago), I used to own a hosting business which has since been sold and made the following offer: 100% of the revenue generated over a certain period of time ended up being donated via Kiva. That way, you guys got decent cheap hosting and helped those in
