What About LLL.coms and End Users?

Posted on 24 February 2017 by Andrei

I’ve written about LLLL.coms yesterday and since there’s been quite a bit of interest in LLLs over the past 24 hours after a ~10k CHIP LLL price drop (blog as well as forum discussions), I think it’s time to discuss LLL.coms from an end user perspective.

Do LLLL.coms Have End User Potential?

Posted on 23 February 2017 by Andrei

LLLL.com prices have skyrocketed from late 2015 to early 2016, then fell as of that point and have pretty much stagnated since. The price drop was dramatic but still, prices are *considerably* higher now than they were prior to the surge in Chinese interest.

Are You a Paper Domainer?

Posted on 11 February 2017 by Andrei

In his “Outliers” book, Malcolm Gladwell says it takes roughly 10,000 hours of practice to achieve mastery in your field. Now sure, I’m not saying we should agree with his 10,000 figure 100% but it is fairly obvious that no matter what it is you do for a living, it takes a LOT of practice to become an expert. A LOT!

Plans Without Data Are Meaningless

Posted on 08 February 2017 by Andrei

Beginners love writing numbers on a piece of paper and calling it a plan, I was guilty of the exact same thing. Making plans about how you’ll buy x domains, then “easily” (oh, how I’ve misused that word over the years!) sell y% each year at an average price of $z and watch that sweet, sweet money come rolling in.

Can We Please Stop With the “Unreported Sales” BS?

Posted on 06 February 2017 by Andrei

Quite frankly, I’m sick and tired of arguments such as “yeah, but there are gazillions of huge unreported sales” whenever someone points out that sales of a certain asset class have been weak.

We’ve seen it with dot mobi (although I’ve never dabbled in dot mobis), we’ve seen it with dot TV (I’ve invested in .tv here and there), we’ve seen it with certain types of dot coms as well (future trend domains or other “flavor of the month” investments, not my cup of tea) and of course, we’re seeing it with new gTLDs as well (I’ve invested here and there at the very beginning, zero interest at this point).

Posted on 01 February 2017 by Andrei

I was reading a post Raymond has written earlier today and snoopy made an interesting/valid remark: that 99% of businesses spend 10 bucks on a domain.

The State of the Reseller Market in 2017

Posted on 30 January 2017 by Andrei

I’m sure some of you never sell to other investors because you have enough capital to play the buy and gold game. Most domainers however do end up needing liquidity for various reasons and decide to sell their domains at wholesale prices on the reseller market. Some even focus on that market (yours truly, for example).

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 Escrow.com 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.
