Is it just me or did Handle.com sell for less than what it’s worth?

I was reading one of my favorite blogs today, TheDomains.com, and I learned that Handle.com sold on Sedo last week for $95,080. Honestly I did a double-take on this one because IMHO I think this domain is worth six-figures, whoever bought it got a steal of a deal. Let’s compare Handle.com to a few recent […]

The cheesy domain name video awards have arrived – help me pick a winner

While I’m always a fan of successful domain investors sharing their secrets to success, I’m less of a fan of people who don’t know much about the industry who create videos talking to people about how easy it is to make money with domain names. I have been buying and selling domain names for over […]

Well-known Domain Name Investor and publisher of the incredibly popular website Domaining.com lost ADO.com via UDRP. What made this so ridiculous (to me at least) […]

Are six-figure domain names a risky investment?

Over the last few years I think it’s safe to say that the domain industry has seen some pretty terrible UDRP decisions. For any of my blog readers who don’t know what a UDRP is, here’s a quick primer: UDRP is an acronym for Uniform Dispute Resolution Policy.

As someone who has been investing in domain names for over ten years now, I have tried to keep a close eye on UDRP decisions. Many people liken the domain name world to the Wild West but it’s important to remember that there are defined rules and regulations which, uh, the Wild West didn’t exactly […]

Frank Schilling’s domain investing advice from a year ago is worth listening to again

A year ago Frank recorded a twenty minute video on You Tube sharing domain investment tips. It’s had north of 6,000 views since then so I’m guessing that many of my readers saw it, that being said I’m sure there are plenty who haven’t.

What is a Domainer? And how many people think they are one when they really aren’t

I was talking with a friend yesterday, he only knows me as a startup founder, but the conversation moved to domain names and domain investing, he has no idea I have a blog or that I’ve been buying and selling domain names for the last ten years. His initial response was, “wait – so you’ve […]

When you buy a domain, how long do you think you’ll hang onto it before you sell?

It’s something many people don’t think of when they buy a domain, but more people should – when do you realistically expect to sell? This question is tied to an equally important question – what do you want to sell it for? If you look at some of the top Domain Investors, the people who […]

When it comes to flipping two-word .COMs, Logan Flatt is on a roll

I always laugh when people say that the only people who make money with domain names are the guys who got started in the early days. When I started in 2007 just about everyone told me I was too late, and another “late-comer” that is making waves lately is Logan Flatt, who has been flipping […]

A handful of things I’ve learned about Chinese Domaining lately

I wrote about a new WhatsApp Group about Chinese Domaining earlier this week and since then I’ve had a chance to learned a few things that I didn’t know before. Just to be clear, I didn’t know that much before since this is an area that is as new to me as it likely is […]
