… let’s try to figure out what the next best thing is.
For this, I need your help.
As some of you have noticed, finding a $0.99 – $2.95 GoDaddy coupon that works is about as easy as finding a unicorn these days. As the domain industry’s self-proclaimed cheap bastard, it’s my moral obligation to help those who are on the lookout for the cheapest possible domain registration options.

Some of you might remember that Auctionpus used to be a reasonably popular domain auction site back in the day. In my opinion, the concept is great: an octopus which points to 8 auctions through its tentacles, it’s basically a “quality over quantity” approach which revolves around only eight auctions receiving exposure at any given point.

Maybe I’m doing something wrong but I’m not exactly impressed with Flippa’s current performance. Have any of you guys sold anything over the let’s say past 2-3 months there? I’m especially interested in hearing input from people who have used Flippa a lot. To me, it seems there are waaaaaaaaay too many listings and not enough buyers.

As I’ve mentioned yesterday as well, while I am not excited about the idea of investing in new gTLDs (which is why I only own a few), I do believe the “best of the best” have potential. I got Stocks.XYZ with the intention of developing it for my case study, as I consider it a very good domain, “stocks” is without a doubt a monster term. However, with the upcoming launch of my book, I doubt I’ll have time to touch it anytime soon.
This brings me to the question I’d like to ask today: should I try contacting end users about Stocks.XYZ?

You probably thought it was a typo and that I meant China, didn’t you?
Well, it’s not and I didn’t.

As some of you already know, the General Availability period for Dot Website, Dot Press and Dot Host will start tomorrow instead of today.
There were a lot of launches this week but I’m probably not the only one who considers Dot Website the most interesting one to watch.

Have any of you heard at least one success story about a domainer who did very well with new gTLDs yet? Yes, I know, it’s still too early to draw conclusions but I would have expected at least a few decent success stories by now.

I have to admit that I’m looking forward to seeing some numbers tomorrow but personally, I decided not to go after any Dot London or Dot Global domains.

This much is certain: a lot of mistakes have been made as far as the new gTLD launch process is concerned. What is the number one thing you would have done differently?

Yesterday, I wrote a post about the fact that in my opinion, geo new gTLD (especially city new gTLDs, as Christopher Hofman pointed out in a comment) are clearly outperforming niche new gTLDs (such as Dot Furniture) but wait a second… what’s a niche new gTLD?
