Live ROTD NamesCon Auction Results

Posted on 23 January 2017 by Andrei

I’m watching the auction via NameJet as we speak and thought it would be a good idea to post the live results here. Maybe some of you aren’t NameJet users or perhaps issues such as a poor Internet connection are preventing you from watching the auctions. I’ll update this post as often as I can, you can refresh it if you want to be kept up to date or you can of course just drop by later and see the final results :)

Here they are:

NamesCon ROTD Live Auction Starts Today

Posted on 23 January 2017 by Andrei

… only about 11 hours left (it starts at 3 PM Pacific time) and I have to say, I’m following several of these. Since I live in Europe, this means I’ll have to stay up quite late and I don’t really do this nowadays unless it’s genuinely worth it. The fact that I consider some of these auctions worth staying up for says a lot.

The Trump Administration and Domaining?

Posted on 21 January 2017 by Andrei

I dislike making predictions and want to make it clear this post isn’t one. Instead, think of it as the scenario I attribute the highest probability to. I may very well be wrong and in fact, actually hope I’ll be wrong.

The Effect of Isolationism on the Internet?

Posted on 19 January 2017 by Andrei

The UK Brexit vote, the election of Trump in the US are just two examples which make it clear that more and more people have adopted an isolationist attitude. The same principle is valid elsewhere in the world as well. In Europe, isolationist candidates are at record-breaking popularity levels in a lot of places and again, all of this is taking place in a democratic framework.

Will Bitcoin Eventually Be Used for End User Transactions?

Posted on 17 January 2017 by Andrei

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 by Andrei

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 by Andrei

Companies like 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 by Andrei

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 by Andrei

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 by Andrei

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.
