Sunday Afternoon Question: Can the Parking Industry Be “Saved”?

Posted on 29 May 2011 by Andrei

As all of you know, parking revenue went down the you know what over the past couple of years and a lot of people have moved away from this monetization option altogether. I think the launch of and the revenue increases several portfolio holders have been reporting made a lot of domainers ask themselves if this situation can “save” the parking industry. If you’d prefer, the question I’m asking today (“Can the parking industry be saved?”) can be replaced by two more specific ones:

Several TM/Typo Domains Removed from Frank’s Feed

Posted on 23 May 2011 by Andrei

If this trend continues, then it will be clear to everyone that Frank intends to say no to typo/TM traffic and that would be a great thing IMO. According to, about 1,000 domains have been removed from Frank Schilling’s feed yesterday. Only 2 domains are “out” today and that’s how the trend has been since the project went live, so that makes me think that yesterday’s 1k domains have been removed by Frank and not by the domainer who owns them (the same domainer btw, privacy was used for all of ’em).

So the World Will End Today. Again.

Posted on 21 May 2011 by Andrei

I know, I know, this isn’t a domaining-related rant but sheesh: is it just me being unreasonable or is there some kind of an overly mediatized news story related to the end of the world each week or at least month these days? Sometimes it’s a scientist making these predictions, sometimes a clairvoyant/whatever and this time, it’s a 89-year-old dude who thinks the world is going to end today (May 21). Oh well, it was nice meeting you guys 🙂

Comments (14) Yep, Dot TV!

Posted on 16 May 2011 by Andrei

One of the world’s most popular music-related events, Eurovision, uses a dot tv domain for its official website. Quite a few companies seem to like this TLD and in my opinion, after Verisign removed the premium pricing structure back in March 2010, .tv is a very good option for domainers as well. I own several quality .tv domains, Mike Berkens owns a bunch and the list could go on and on. If you’re interested in .tv, you need to understand one thing:

Posted on 10 May 2011 by Andrei

I’ve noticed a few similar situations before and all I can say is this: take a close look at the domain before placing a bid or you might just end up winning a typo like (, NOT and all of a sudden realize that the “deal of a lifetime” was simply an embarrassing mistake.
