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.

Maybe Most of Us Europeans Suck at Running Businesses

Posted on 04 November 2015 by Andrei

As someone who has lived in Europe his entire life, I’m in a reasonably good position to notice that quite frankly, the fact that Europe is currently doing awful from an economic standpoint shouldn’t surprise anyone.

Yesterday, I’ve written about the fact that most of my business dealings with individuals and companies from Germany have been frustrating and a reader pointed out that it may very well be a phenomenon which affects Europe as a whole, not just Germany.

Am I the Only One Who Finds Most Domain Deals with People/Companies from Germany Frustrating?

Posted on 03 November 2015 by Andrei

… do keep in mind that I said most, not all.

While there are indeed exceptions and I for one know at least a couple of genuinely awesome German domainers, most of my domain deals with people/companies from Germany have been frustrating to say the least.

Most People Have Difficulties Accepting Different Opinions

Posted on 31 October 2015 by Andrei

I’ve been blogging here on DomainingTips for almost 8 years and have come to the conclusion that I am without a doubt insane.

Let me explain.

Albert Einstein is credited with saying that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Does It Matter What *I* Like?

Posted on 01 October 2015 by Andrei

I’ve never been an amazingly active short domain investor. I’ve owned a few here and there but nothing spectacular, I’ve always preferred one word dot coms. My newsletter however has been and will continue to be dominated by short domains, especially LLLL dot coms (I’ll have quite a few nice ones next week, just like I had 100+ this monday).

Am I the Only Domain Investor Who *Doesn’t* Splurge on Technology?

Posted on 29 August 2015 by Andrei

As someone who earns a living on the Internet, you might think I’m the type of person who always buys the latest gadgets. However, I’m the exact opposite and just wanted to see if I’m somewhat of an exception or if others also share my reluctance to spend money on technology-related stuff.
