Where do you go to buy expired domain names?

So as humans we are creatures of habit. I’ve found that for myself, especially when it comes to buying expired domains. For years now I’ve been buying at essentially two places – Go Daddy Auction and Park.io. The other day I was thinking to myself, why do I keep using the same services? Of course, […]

Hand registering domains today is a fools game

So many new domain name investors start the same way, their journey into the Domaining world goes something like this. They read an article about domain investing and go, “wow, people are making money buying and selling domains, that’s amazing!” Then they look at DNJournal and see the prices that domains are selling for and […]

How to buy a domain name – here’s why nobody is responding to your domain name offers

I think the number one question that I get from startup founders who are trying to buy a domain name is, “why is nobody responding to my offers?” While super persistent people will keep firing off emails, a lot of entrepreneurs move onto another domain if they don’t hear back from a domain owner.

Someone bought domains to donate to a Madison Mayor Candidate, then decided to charge $30k for them

Well this is a strange one. Someone who claims to be a supporter of Paul Soglin, a Democratic Madison Mayor candidate, purchased a couple of domains with Soglin’s name in it saying he would donate them to the campaign. Then, it seems he had a change of heart and moved the price from free, to, […]

While I can’t actually seem to play the video itself right now, my guess is we’ll see it pop up on You Tube or somewhere else soon. What I think is so interesting to see here is the incredible media interest […]

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 […]

Where can you sell domains and get paid in Bitcoin?

I recently wrote an article about Bitcoin getting close to crossing the $10,000 mark (which it did). This post spurred a good amount of comments, one of them which asked a question that I’m personally interested in that I’m sure many of my readers are too. Here’s the question from a MorganLinton.com reader named Anthony: […]

5 Black Friday Deals For Anyone With Domains On The Brain

A couple of days ago I wrote about how over the years Black Friday/Cyber Monday has been my time to lock in great deals on domain renewals. On top of great renewal offers Black Friday is also a great time to register new names, start or renew hosting packages, get SSL certificates, and the list […]

A (relatively) overlooked data point when looking at domain name sales

When I first started buying and selling domain names I used the current top domain sales as my inspiration. I saw some nice two-word .COMs that were selling in the five figure range and went to town. Of course I quickly learned that I had bought a bunch of junk, it wasn’t just all one-word […]
