Verisign just called Domain Investing a “questionable practice” – I want to fly to Virginia to understand why the sudden change in positioning

I was absolutely blown away when I read the following quote on Domain Name Wire yesterday, the source was a blog post by Verisign themselves, in it they say: “Flipping domain names or warehousing them to create scarcity adds nothing to the industry and merely allows those engaged in this questionable practice to enrich themselves at the expense […]

I took Uniregistry’s brokers for a spin and I’m pretty impressed

I’ve been using DomainNameSales.com landing pages for some time now. One of the first things I made sure of was that the inbound inquiries went right to me. Over time I’ve realized that I actually don’t really have the time to field or follow up with these inbound offers, I’m just too busy. Now this […]

Google has found a pretty interesting use for .NEW domains

When it comes to office products, Google has me. I use Google Docs and Google Sheets instead of Microsoft Word or Excel, and email – yup, gMail, not Outlook. The only exception I make when it comes to office software is Keynote – I can’t imagine life without keynote…which means I need my Mac. Okay, […]

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 […]

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 […]

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. All ICANN-accredited registrars follow a uniform dispute […]
