European Domainers Would LOVE to See a Weaker Euro and a Stronger Dollar

Posted on 29 April 2011 by Andrei

Lots of US investors make the mistake of thinking that European domainers benefit from the fact that the Euro is strong and the dollar is weak. Wrong, wrong, wrong! In fact, a strong Euro represents a disadvantage if you earn a living online and live in Europe, as I will explain through this blog post.

Facebook Deals – Bye Bye Groupon and LivingSocial?

Posted on 26 April 2011 by Andrei

Facebook Deals will go live in 5 US cities (Dallas, Atlanta, San Diego, San Francisco and Austin) soon. I’m sure all of you know that deal sites like Groupon are all the rage these days, do you think that Facebook Deals will do some serious damage? Given the fact that FB has hundreds of millions of users, I think this project will NOT be a flop. Ok, it won’t be a flop but will it put Groupon and LivingSocial out of business?

New GoDaddy Coupon – $1 Domains

Posted on 19 April 2011 by Andrei

Unlike the last one I shared with you guys, this coupon can be used by existing customers as well. As usual, only people who purchase the domain through their credit card can use this coupon and another thing worth mentioning is that it is NOT limited to dot com domains (it’s easy to find out if it works for the tld you had in mind, simply use it when you’re checking out after registering your domain). Alright then, here’s the brand new GoDaddy coupon you can use if you want to buy domains at $1 + $0.18 (ICANN fee): “ACES1”!

You Were “There” Back in 2011? Wow!

Posted on 18 April 2011 by Andrei

In my opinion, that’s exactly what people will ask you 10 – 15 years from now, in other words they’ll have the same attitude that lots of domainers currently display towards those who got in back in ’95 or after the dot com crash. If you think the Internet is all grown up, you’re 100% wrong, the Web is still in its infancy and that’s absolutely great! If you take advantage of the opportunities that are right there in front of you now, you’ll thank yourself later and if not, well you’ll just have to work 4x, 5x, 10x harder in 2021/2026/whatever.

My “let’s turn great domains into businesses” series of full disclosure case studies continues and today, I’ll analyze my latest project, Unmanaged Hosting Dot Com.

Alright then, let’s get started (same format as the other 2 case studies):

How Much Is a Domain Worth… to an End User?

Posted on 14 April 2011 by Andrei

I always find the comments posted on Mike’s blog whenever he mentions an offer he rejected quite funny and can’t believe that people still don’t understand one simple concept: you can say things like “a domain is worth this much” when referring to the reseller market but NOT when it comes to end users! Why?

Random Sunday Evening Theory: Could Facebook “Save” the Parking Industry?

Posted on 10 April 2011 by Andrei

In my opinion, Facebook would be able to monetize certain types of type-in traffic better than Google or Yahoo/Bing. The result? More competition for our traffic! Now before you jump to conclusions, read my post carefully because even though this theory may sound crazy, I think you’ll agree that it’s not exactly illogical.

Posted on 08 April 2011 by Andrei

30 minutes after I published my post about how the term “squatter” was wrongly used, Martin edited his article and wrote a very reasonable/professional comment on DomainingTips.com. Thank you Martin, the Internet would be a far better place if everyone were as open minded as you have proven to be!
