Where Are the End Users?

Posted on 18 August 2014 by Andrei

To be fair, now is *not* the time to start asking that question. This post’s objective is simply pointing out that the “it’s too early to ask that” argument can only work for so long. At this point yes, it works because it actually is quite early in the game but we will eventually have to start addressing this question because absolutely everything depends on it.

Should You Buy and Hold “Hot” Domains?

Posted on 16 August 2014 by Andrei

Posted on 06 August 2014 by Andrei

I didn’t register any but if some of you guys did, feel free to let us know. The seven new gTLDs which entered the General Availability phase today were reasonably appealing but I for one didn’t find any available domains that were attractive enough to convince me to take action.
