The Path to Maturity

Posted on 16 January 2018

First of all, Happy 2018! 🙂

I’ve been pretty much MIA domain blogging-wise as of the end of September and do have to say, I’ve missed you guys! In 2018, I’ll do my best to articulate some thoughts once per month or so because despite domain blogging not being a stellar deal when it comes to the “energy invested / income generated” dimension, I like doing it and need my “fix” every once in a while haha.

If you’d like a free copy, simply write a comment (and I’ll send an email to the email address you’ve used when writing the comment in question) or shoot me an email at

Famously MMX’s founder Antony Van Couvering told Godaddy and other registrars at a conference that MMX didn’t need them.

Bitcoins, Domains, Terrorism & Hurricanes.

Posted on 10 September 2017

If you ever want an example of how the news dictates our thinking, Hurricane Irma and Harvey are your touch stones.
Think of the biggest weather disaster in the last 14 days and most would think of the two hurricanes hitting the US but both pale into insignificance to the recent Moonson floods in South Asia, death toll now over 1,200, 1.5 million buildings destroyed, 10s thousands of schools and hospitals have gone and 40 million people affected. It hardly gets a mention on the mainstream news in Europe or US.

Domaining and… Entitlement

Posted on 07 September 2017

The fact that DomainSherpa is saying goodbye is awful news for the industry. I haven’t interacted with Mike all that much but when I have, he always struck me as a great guy with awesome work ethic.

Our first interaction involved him asking me if I want to hop on for an interview (I think this was during year #1 of DomainSherpa) but back then, I was very insecure about not being a native English speaker and afraid that people who were used to my good writing would be disappointed by the imperfections of my accent and stuff like that. Very funny to remember these things in light of the fact that I guess I’m among other things a vlogger nowadays, with me recording myself 3x per week over at my channel… ah, the weird ironies of life 🙂

Why “New gTLD Spotting” Is Pointless

Posted on 06 September 2017

Since I’m now working really hard on my channel, I tend to pay more attention to the let’s call it business side of YouTube and recently, I’ve noticed that two HUGE YouTubers (Rhett and Link, 12 million subscribers!) are using the domain Mythical.Store to sell merchandise.

GTLDs – Email Security: number 1 reason to buy the dot com and I will show you why.

Posted on 24 July 2017

As a business owner and a domainer, I have never been a fan of the new GTLDs because of the headache it gives me when I think about actually using them as a URL in the real world. Explaining them to people you meet in the normal course of a business day. The leakage of traffic when advertising and marketing. Just the whole confusion they create when explaining or navigating to the URL. However, that pales into insignificance when you take into account the business disruption and security risk of not receiving emails by them going to the dot com version.

Introduction to a new contributor to

Posted on 23 July 2017

Hi, domainers my name is Graham Haynes and together with Andrei I shall also be blogging on My angle is going to be how to create a great business leveraging a generic domain, increasing its worth exponentially.  I have often thought that main street and big businesses do not understand the value of a great name and what better way than to demonstrate it by building a business on one and selling it on for 10s of millions. Hopefully, you can take some elements of how I will build a business to show potential domain buyers examples of what can be achieved on a great domain.

Posted on 19 July 2017

Many blogs discuss how to buy and sell domains pure play domaining. I want to blog about something different as a domainer how to set up a business on a great domain and sell it for £100million.
