I will never ever understand why people keep domains there.
They’re slow to respond, they make moving domains out a hassle and last but certainly not least, they’re uncooperative when it comes to stolen domains, as documented on several occasions on various blogs/forums.

I love it how most people think the future can be predicted in an accurate and consistent manner, from Average Joes who consider themselves experts after reading a few articles on the Interwebs to PhDs who think their models are the best thing since sliced bread.

Shane wrote about some of the hate messages and even threats he’s been receiving lately and it makes me sick to my stomach. No matter how strongly you disagree with someone, resorting to hate comments and/or threats is low.

Short domains have been a blessing for our industry but from certain perspectives, also a curse.
They have helped companies such as Sedo which were on a clear downward slope as reseller market venues come back to life.

At first, I have to admit I didn’t “get” short domains. Quite frankly, I still don’t get numerics for example from an end user perspective.
But as time passed, I realized it doesn’t matter what I “get” or what I “want”, it all boils down to what the market wants.

As a lot of you have noticed by now, DN.com is down. Down as in literally down, “Can’t reach this page” message and all that good stuff. No “We are undergoing maintenance” template, no explanation page, nothing.
This is beyond ridiculous/unprofessional and it’s things like this which make it clear our industry is still in its infancy.

I’ve noticed this for several months: I transfer a domain from its current registrar to GoDaddy but after the transfer has been finalized, the whois info isn’t updated. In other words, the domain keeps the old whois info.

One of the things that bug me about registrars is that even in 2015, the “domain I no longer own still appearing in my account” problem still appears with certain companies. It’s very frustrating to see domains that you now are no longer in your possession appearing in your account.

… except for the registry, of course
Frank Schilling posted an honest + interesting comment on to a DomainIncite post and in my opinion, domainers need to realize that yes, a *lot* of new gTLDS will fail. A lot.

… at least if we’re talking about direct revenue from blogging.
Yesterday, I posted about the fact that I’m looking for guest bloggers (one of them will publish his introductory article soon and tell us a thing or two about what he did right/wrong, all that good stuff) and one of my readers asked me why I’m not paying for articles.
