A Warm Welcome to All DNForum Members – Part Two :)

Posted on 19 January 2013 by Andrei

Just wanted to thank Adam from DNF for his help. If you’re a DNForum member, you received a PM from Adam about the fact that until the end of this month, 100% of the revenue generated from new shared hosting customers will be donated via Kiva (you can use your $0.98/month account to host unlimited domains and will also receive a lifetime money back guarantee).

Split Test

Posted on 18 January 2013 by Andrei

BIN price or negotiation? That’s just one example of a question you should be asking yourself and to find the best solution for your portfolio (I don’t think there’s a “one size fits all” solution because each portfolio is different and each domain owner has a different financial situation, different expectations and so on), why not split test?

GoDaddy Disallowing In-Store Credit Use with Certain Coupons

Posted on 17 January 2013 by Andrei

It seems GoDaddy is no longer letting you use in-store credits to pay for purchases for which you use certain coupons (again, certain coupons, not all of them). Just thought I’d let you know in case you were wondering why you’re not able to finalize the checkout process.

Is it just me or is the general population becoming dumber and more shallow with each day that passes? In my own country, we had *one* TV station which was considered tabloid-ish a few years ago and everyone made fun of it. Now, *all* TV stations (ok, almost) are like that. I don’t live in the US but I’ve been following the US entertainment industry as well and it seems the situation is similar.

Don’t Forget to Follow Up!

Posted on 15 January 2013 by Andrei

I’m pretty sure most domainers underestimate the importance of following up, hope this post represents a good reminder. Let’s assume End User 1 made an offer for 9 months ago but you declined it and he wouldn’t budge, let’s also assume that End User 2 made an offer for the same domain 3 months ago and that End User 3 made an offer you’re tempted to accept a few days ago, after a back-and-forth negotiation.

Is Hard Work a Good Investment?

Posted on 14 January 2013 by Andrei

Whenever you work on something, you’re basically investing time and energy. When you invest money, you always analyze the potential ROI, so why not do the same thing when investing time/energy? I’ll start by answering the question I asked in the title and the answer is “yes or no” 🙂

Hard work can be a good investment but if you take things to the extreme, it might end up being a bad one, let me explain why.

There Will Be More and More Domainers

Posted on 13 January 2013 by Andrei

One of the most obvious positive aspects associated with new gTLDs is exactly this: there will be more and more domainers, there will be a “gold rush” vibe that anyone who has been around for a while is familiar with. For our industry, that’s definitely a positive thing, no matter what your opinion about new gTLDs may be. The more attention domaining receives, the better.

Emotional Attachment = Good or Bad Idea?

Posted on 12 January 2013 by Andrei

In my opinion, emotional attachment can be a good thing as well as a bad thing, it all depends on the context. On the one hand, you have to be passionate about what you do for a living but on the other hand, when it’s time to exit (aka sell your domains or websites), letting emotional attachment cloud your judgement would be a mistake.

Motivational Stuff

Posted on 11 January 2013 by Andrei

Lots of domainers and entrepreneurs love motivational stuff but personally, I think it’s overrated. I mean look, if you want to be successful and all that good stuff, you shouldn’t need motivational videos/books/whatever to set things in motion.
