Yes, a domain name can actually make or break your business

I was really happy to see an article that went live on Forbes.com on Monday about a subject near and dear to my (and many of my readers) heart – the real impact a domain name can have on your business. Sometimes when I get lowball offers on my domains, the prospective buyer says something […]

Did you know you could buy a domain name for $1M and not be able to legally use it?

  It might sound crazy, but it’s true. You can buy a domain name for a million dollars (or more) and not be able to use the domain, or even worse, lose the domain because you are infringing on someone’s trademark. It’s something that many startups don’t think about until it’s too late, but the […]

After raising over $67M eShares fails to secure the .COM and rebrands to Carta

In all honesty I’m pretty shocked about this one. If you haven’t heard of eShares let me drop a little knowledge before we continue since we’ve been a customer for years and I really like what they do. eShares (errr, Carta) allows startups to easily manage and grant equity all through a super slick, easy […]
