When Pitching to Domainers, Don’t Use End User Arguments

Posted on 31 October 2012 by Andrei

Maybe it’s just me but I always find emails from domainers who try to sell me domains by using end user arguments irritating. I’m a RESELLER, so I’m interested in buying domains in order to ultimately sell them to someone else at a profit.

An Open Letter to Nominet and ICANN – One Suggestion, That’s It

Posted on 29 October 2012 by Andrei

I don’t want to turn this post into a novel, so I’ll keep things simple. As most of you probably know, Nominet will be introducing .uk domains. Let’s be honest and leave hypocrisy aside for just one moment: just like new gTLDs represent a way through which ICANN will make a LOT of money, dot uk domains represent a way through which… you guessed it, Nominet will make a LOT of money.

Random Sunday Thought: The Commercial Web Is Less Than 20 Years Old

Posted on 28 October 2012 by Andrei

That’s it, just a random thought that will hopefully help you guys avoid useless back and forth arguments in the future. From now on, whenever you come across someone who rationalizes using arguments such as “oh I wish I started investing in domains earlier”, simply explain that our industry isn’t even 20 years old.

Quick Tip: Forward Email Messages to Your Main Account

Posted on 27 October 2012 by Andrei

Most of us have more than one email account and as a business owner as well as a domainer, it’s inevitable in my case as well. After all, displaying email@project1.com on the “Contact Us” page of project2.com wouldn’t exactly appear all that professional.

Will New gTLDs Affect The Number of Dot Com Registrations?

Posted on 26 October 2012 by Andrei

As I’m sure you’ve noticed, Verisign’s stock fell sharply and all in all, the dot com growth rate is slowing down. We still have growth but as the Internet matures, it’s understandable that the growth rate will not always be impressive.

Will new gTLDs affect this growth rate as well?

Most New gTLDs Will Have a Serious LIQUIDITY Problem

Posted on 24 October 2012 by Andrei

As most of you know, I specialize in the reseller market and keep in touch with a lot of active resellers. Most of them made money with dot com alternatives but all of their stories (and my personal experience confirms them) have something in common: selling domains in other gTLDs on the reseller market is exponentially harder than selling dot coms!
