Rick Schwartz comes up with a fifteen point list detailing why .APP is a buy for domain investors

As many of you know by now, Rick hasn’t been a huge fan of the new gTLD program, he sees a lot of the new domain extensions as junk and has warned investors to stop flushing their money down the toilet buying them. At the same time, Rick is a fan of .APP, which certainly […]

5N .COMs continue to see strong bidding in the aftermarket

I have pointed this out a few times now, but I’m happy to do it again because I can’t help but see it every time I look at expired domains. 5N .COMs are seeing strong bidding activity, and prices going into the thousands of dollars…which feels high, at least to me. As I’ve said many […]

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 […]

I have been buying and selling domain names for over […]

The company that took ADO.com via UDRP is now getting sued for Reverse Domain Name Hijacking

Last week I wrote about what I think will go down as one of the worst UDRP decisions in history. In case you missed this one, here’s a quick recap. 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.

If you invest in domain names, a recent UDRP decision should scare you

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. Either way it’s worth watching it, either for the first time […]

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 […]
