Will Bitcoin Eventually Be Used for End User Transactions?

Posted on 17 January 2017

I had a very interesting exchange of comments with a reader who is a bitcoin enthusiast a few days ago. While I’m not a bitcoin/crypto pro, I am reasonably knowledgeable and since I’m a domainer as well, I can’t help but wonder whether bitcoin will eventually become mainstream enough to be used for end user transactions.

Consulting Misconceptions

Posted on 14 January 2017

My best experience when paying for consulting services has been the most “expensive” one, which involved me paying three figures per hour. Today, I’ll try to explain why.

Say Goodbye to Any Kind of Domaining Privacy

Posted on 13 January 2017

Companies like Escrow.com obviously hate increasing bureaucracy but are continuously forced to and this is only the beginning in my opinion. Registrars will most likely soon follow suit and it’s probably only a matter of time until you can kiss features such as whois privacy goodbye.

Is Your Domain Portfolio “Paper Wealth”?

Posted on 12 January 2017

Since pretty much everyone who’s reading this is a domain investor, I’m reasonably confident a relatively large percentage of your wealth is represented by your domain portfolio.

Mike Berkens Tells It Like It Is

Posted on 10 January 2017

In perhaps the harshest post of his I’ve ever read, Mike tells us the sad but true reason why the industry lost so many voices. He’s 100% spot on in my opinion.

He wrote his article as a reaction to the blog post I’ve written on Sunday about the state of domain blogging in 2017. Mike tried commenting on the post two times but his comments were caught by the spam filter and therefore didn’t appear immediately, I’ve approved both and they’re now up. Ironically, I then posted on The Domains and my post ended up caught by his spam filter, it has since been approved :)

The State of Domaining Blogs in 2017

Posted on 08 January 2017

The first paragraph of a DSAD post I’ve read earlier today got me thinking. It refers to the fact that there are less and less advertisers on domaining blogs (I’d say domaining-related sites in general) and in my opinion, this should make all of us think about the state of domaining blogs and domaining opinion formers in 2017 and beyond.

What Pays the Bills?

Posted on 07 January 2017

As much as domainers like to talk about “potential” and dream big, bills have to be paid and bellies have to be filled.

One of the most important questions you have to answer will always be this: what ultimately pays the bills and puts food on the table?

Domaining Beginners -> Survival of the Fittest

Posted on 06 January 2017

Out of every 10 beginners who are reading this post right now, my best guess is that 5 of them won’t be around next year and 9 of them won’t be around two years from now.

If you were to ask me how many out of not 10 but 1,000 beginners will ultimately turn domaining into a full-time career, I’d probably say less than 10… maybe 5 or 6.

A Special Thank You to the DomainingTips Contest Sponsors!

Posted on 04 January 2017

I’ve been driving all over the country over the past couple of weeks, which made blogging fairly difficult but here we are, at the start of 2017 and I think it makes sense that I dedicate this year’s first post to thanking the sponsors who made my book launch contest possible :)

Here they are, along with the prizes they’ve offered:

1) an iPhone 7 (ridiculously awesome phone) from Uniregistry

2) two NamesCon passes ($799 each)

3) three $300/year Whoisology plans

4) one Domaining Europe ticket (650 EUR value)

5) $250 in Escrow.com credit

6) two annual Efty Growth plans

7) $100 in credit that can be used for registrations as well as renewals from 101Domain

I Think Someone Should Buy DNForum.com

Posted on 22 December 2016

This much is certain: the forum is going nowhere as long as Adam Dicker is in charge, for obvious reasons. I think pretty much all of us can agree on that.

However, there’s something else a lot of people can agree on: DNForum used to be a decent place for domainers and in fact, it used to have a far better noise to quality ratio than NamePros back in the day.
