Expediting the Transfer Process

Posted on 18 July 2014 by Andrei

In my opinion, this is a feature all registrars should have and as a domainer, I consider it quite desirable. Several companies already offer this and not having to wait that much for a transfer to finalize is a very nice perk.

Offering “Domain + Development” Packages to End Users?

Posted on 15 July 2014 by Andrei

This is one of the things I’ve been thinking about lately.

A lot of people consider the very concept of buying a premium domain strange but on the other hand, paying for website development is something they’re most likely used to.

The New Normal?

Posted on 14 July 2014 by Andrei

At this point, it seems that (as strange as it may sound), people are starting to consider a new gTLD launch with 1000-ish domains decent. We had several instances when only a 3 figure number of domains were registered after should have been the big launch phase (sunrise + landrush or variations thereof + first day of general availability), so standards/expectations have been loosened quite a bit.

Posted on 10 July 2014 by Andrei

Sometimes, negotiations don’t go as planned and the end user you’ve been communicating with doesn’t get back to you. Should you follow up or wait for the other party’s reply?

Posted on 09 July 2014 by Andrei

Yesterday, I wrote about the fact that it’s strange how certain end users aren’t even willing to pay a more than reasonable price for a great domain.

Snoopy didn’t agree and said the following:

“we moan about someone who will not pay our price yet we’d never pay a fraction of that price ourselves”

Frustrating End User Mentality Issues

Posted on 08 July 2014 by Andrei

Leonard Britt posted a comment yesterday about how a production company refused to pay more than low $xxx for a domain which would have represented either the best possible choice for their project or if not, one of the best choices for sure.

I think such mentality issues deserve to be addressed.

Don’t Take Things Personally!

Posted on 04 July 2014 by Andrei

Back when I started out, I used to worry about every little detail and take things personally. If something didn’t work out (a deal that fell through, for example), I’d spend lots and lots of time thinking about it.

I’d get mad at the other party.

Quick Tip for Flippers

Posted on 03 July 2014 by Andrei

Being a flipper can be quite lucrative if you know what you’re doing but the number one risk is (in my opinion, at least) letting time go by without building your very own portfolio of “keepers” or in other words, not having any long-term domain investments whatsoever.

As a domainer, not accidentally letting domains expire is definitely one of the top five rules you should follow. But does this mean you should renew all of your domains for longer periods, maybe even 10 years each?

Let’s crunch some numbers and find out.
