Will the launch of .DEV impact the value of .IO domain names?

Well it’s official, .DEV is here, and since the new registry is being run by Google, it’s safe to say there’s a nice marketing budget behind it. I personally think .DEV is a pretty solid extension for developers or anything dev-related and being three characters it’s short and very easy to remember. Before I go […]

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.

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.
