The $201,250 Casino.Online Sale Is Great… but Not for Domainers :)

Posted on 26 March 2017

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I have to ask: how much money did domainers make after the $201,250 Casino.Online sale? The answer is obvious: a big fat $0, because the domain was sold by the registry to an end user, NOT by a domainer.

The Comfort of Reliability and Lack Thereof

Posted on 25 March 2017

I have to admit there are days during which I envy those who have the comfort of 9 to 5 jobs. Even if it’s a fake sense of comfort and the idea of job safety is somewhat of a joke, it must be relieving not to feel any kind of “I wonder how much money I’ll make next month”-type pressure.

Let’s Talk About “Blockbuster” Sales

Posted on 24 March 2017

First and foremost, I want to make it clear that this post is written by someone who has been domaining for quite a few years but never had a “blockbuster” sale that tops the charts.

Realistically speaking, most of those who are reading this won’t have a blockbuster sale either but let me ask you: so what?

Sedo GreatDomains March Ending Tomorrow

Posted on 22 March 2017

This month’s Sedo GreatDomains auctions are in my opinion better than last month’s but still, not exactly inventory I’d call spectacular. However, some of you might find something of interest, especially if you’re into short domains. I’d say the short domain category is well-represented this month, whereas other domain categories… not so much.

Investing in Brandables Isn’t For Everyone

Posted on 21 March 2017

I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan of investing in brandables.

Investing in generics? Sure. Investing in short domains? Yep. But brandables? Totally different ballgame as far as I’m concerned.
