Quality vs. Noise on the Reseller Market

Posted on 26 February 2017 by Andrei

Earlier this week, I’ve mentioned that perhaps Sedo should turn GreatDomains into a “once per season” (4 times per year) thing rather than a monthly event so as to be able to put more appealing inventory on the table. Perhaps an attitude like this benefits the reseller market as a whole and I’m practicing what I preach here with my own newsletter.

Slow Motion Train Wreck

Posted on 10 October 2016 by Andrei

I gave new gTLDs what I consider to be a fair chance.

Some readers asked me to submit a proverbial verdict as soon as they started going live. I refused because I wanted to gather data first, which I did.

I’m Not Thrilled About the Two US Election Candidates :(

Posted on 02 October 2016 by Andrei

I’ve just finished publishing a one minute video (HERE it is) through which I’ve analyzed the 1st Trump-Clinton debate from an economic perspective (if you find it useful, I’d really appreciate it if you could share it with others through facebook or other methods).

Enom, NameCheap, Moniker and Others DESPERATELY Need a Safer Push System

Posted on 08 July 2016 by Andrei

The current push system these companies (these three were the first I thought of, there may very well be several more) have is, quite frankly, nothing short of dangerous.

Let’s Talk About the Brexit and Its Long-Term Implications for a Moment

Posted on 01 July 2016 by Andrei

Yes, I know this is a domaining blog but today, I’d like to refrain from talking about five number dot horse domains and cover perhaps the most important historic event of the 21st century so far: the fact that in the United Kingdom, citizens have voted to leave the European Union.

First of all, for those of you who don’t know what will theoretically happen next, I’ll share a link to my most recent One Minute Economics video, a video about the Brexit and what happens next.

Come On GoDaddy, Fix Your WHOIS Thingy Already!

Posted on 08 May 2016 by Andrei

Maybe if we say it frequently enough, they’ll actually do it :)

It’s frustrating that whenever I buy a domain from someone and transfer it to GoDaddy, it retains the contact info of the seller.

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.
