Will Network Solutions Ever Stop Being a Crook?

Posted on 09 April 2008 by Lord Brar

Network Solutions

TechCrunch is reporting that now Network Solution is hijacking traffic to the sub-domains to the domains hosted by them. From the post, Win Betteridge, who runs GotGame.com contacted TechCrunch with the following details —

For instance, app.gotgame.com resolves to a Network Solutions page with text links, including “Poker Tournaments” and “Texas Holdem Games.” The same is true of any other unassigned sub-domain. We have spoken to customer service a few times about fixing this problem…

I don’t know if this is standard practice for a hosting company, but this strikes me as another case of Network Solutions unreasonably profiting at the expense of its customers.

This is shocking and absolutely unethical — and no this is NOT a common practice by hosts but rather the greed of Network Solutions. The TechCrunch post has comments from readers which describes other Network Solutions horror stories.

But well, this is Network Solutions – the hypocrites of highest order – the guys who themselves do Front-Running while pretending to be fighting it and recently got sued for it. I wonder if they will ever stop being a Crook?

So here I am, about to lay down the case study on my very first domain sales that just happened a few weeks ago.

I will take my building and selling and cross-reference it to his article, to see where I have done right, and where I have gone wrong and could have done better. Continue Reading

How I “Really” Make Money From Domain Names

Posted on 08 April 2008 by Lord Brar

Domaining Strategies

This is My True Story

There was a time when I was extremely frustrated with my domaining business. I was seeing people sell domains for hundreds of thousands of dollars and yet I had so many domains which no one was willing to pay even registration fee for, let aside thousands. What was worse was that I was not making much money in parking either.

Whenever I saw the domain-sales charts I would cringe. What was I doing wrong? Was there a fault in my investment strategy? I had to do something about it or simply get out of domaining business. It was a do-or-die situation for me.

There is another thing — I hate failing.

So, I sat-back to take a rational look at my investment strategy and find out what was wrong with it. And very soon I did. Continue Reading

I Finally Understand Twitter. No Really.

Posted on 06 April 2008 by Lord Brar

One thing which has been perplexing me for long was finally solved today. I finally understood what Twitter is and got addicted to it!

The Mystery

The issue that I had with twitter was that everyone was talking about how great twitter and microblogging was and getting addicted to it. However, whenever I would log into twitter.com and see hundreds of text-messages from people which I could not even imagine reading — at least without wasting half of my day — I just could not get my head around it!

Did all the top guys who had started twittering love wasting their time or was there more to it!

…got solved

And the mystery got solved yesterday — when I downloaded a twitter client called twhirl. The moment I downloaded it, I realized how powerful twitter can be and how addictive it actually is.

The main reason why I could never understand and get used to twitter was because it was a headache to keep visiting twitter.com to check my tweets. The moment I downloaded twhirl, it turned twitter into an instant-messenger — or a big chat-room, if I may.

Yes, that’s right. Twitter is actually a Chat Room on Steroids!!!

You may call it a micro-blogging platform or anything else but if you think of it in the most simplistic terms, it is actually a chat-room where you can add people to your chat and start chatting. The difference is that all your chats are logged and shown on your twitter profile.

And one advice, don’t even try to use twitter without having Twhirl on your system.

PS: Follow me on Twitter.
