eName Really (Really, Really) Sucks

Posted on 12 April 2016 by Andrei

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.

NOBODY Can Predict the Future

Posted on 22 March 2016 by Andrei

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.

You’re the ONLY One Responsible for Your Decisions

Posted on 20 March 2016 by Andrei

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.

Seriously, wtf?

It’s Hard to Be a Domaining Newbie in 2016

Posted on 18 March 2016 by Andrei

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.

Anomaly Is the New Status Quo

Posted on 13 March 2016 by Andrei

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.

Dear DN.com, WTF? Seriously, WTF?

Posted on 12 March 2016 by Andrei

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.

Dear GoDaddy, Please Fix Your Whois Bug Already!

Posted on 07 February 2016 by Andrei

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.

Domains You No Longer Own Still Appearing in Your Account

Posted on 19 December 2015 by Andrei

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.

Who Would Have the Most to Lose If a New gTLD “Goes Dark”

Posted on 04 December 2015 by Andrei

… 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.

Bloggers Make Considerably Less Than People Think

Posted on 19 November 2015 by Andrei

… 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.
