A message to frustrated ".com" domainers.

Lesson 1: I do not buy ".com" domain names;
Lesson 2: if you work in the domain name business, you use a domain name ending in ".domains", not ".com";
Lesson 3: I only answer emails ending in ".email", other endings won't be read;
Lesson 4: in regard to domaining, I only visit websites ending in ".domains";
Lesson 5: all this is a joke, I don't buy domain names ;-)

Domain parking is down, but not dead

39% of survey takers reported an RPM (revenue per thousand) below $10, with 56% reporting below $20. Interestingly, these numbers on the low side are almost exactly the same as when I ran this survey for the first time in 2006.

Which Domain(s) Should You Develop?

"Unfortunately, I still come across the “maybe I’ll develop it later on” mentality way too often. In fact, let me just start by saying that if you used the word “maybe” or a synonym, the domain in question is probably not development material."

New gTLDs: Any Purchase Inquiries Yet?

I know the new gTLD domain names haven’t been available for that long, but I am curious if you’ve had any end user buyer inquiries for any of them yet. Although end user inquiries would obviously be more desirable than inquiries from other domain investors, I think any inquiry would be a good sign.

How to Find the Most Valuable Domains in New TLDs in 10 Minutes

New top-level domains (TLDs) are launching every week for the next couple of years. In each new TLD, a small fraction of domain names are more valuable than others based on end user search volume and advertiser interest.

What New gTLD Domainers Don't Want You to Know (and How to Avoid Crap Domains)

In summary it's extremely hard work, time consuming and frustrating with the end result of eventually getting some premium domain others will want. But it may not be worth the trouble. If you try it with most or all new extensions, it will be a full time job with overtime, no pay or benefits and an increase in grey hair. I recommend only fart around with a few extensions you are interested in, perhaps one to five.

Flippa Friday: AspenHotels.com, Send.io, Draw.com, Tattoo.directory

You’ll notice some TLDs like .IO and .TATTOO on my list this week, while I typically stay pretty far away from these TLDs when it comes to investing I do think there are some solid premiums that make sense, and I’ve included those in this week’s selections as well.

New gTLD Study – How Many New gTLDS Rank In Google

“All searches were conducted from US IPs (so, this is not indicative of international results). The phrases in this set represent a variety of lengths and volumes, but are in English and tend to be commercial in nature. All TLDs in the list occurred at least one – some percentages were just too small to display at two decimal places.”

Uniregistry Gets 300+ Sunrise .Gift Registrations As J&J Goes In Heavy But Don’t Buy Me These

Uniregistry’s new gTLD .Gift has over 300 Sunrise applications which is pretty impressive as Johnson & Johnson went in pretty heavy to protect many of their products in an extension not usually associated with “gifts”.

Donuts drives domainers out of the New gTLD domain name game

I checked exactly 113 domain names from the 5 Donuts New gTLDs that entered Early Access Program Program (EAP) pricing this week: .house, .coffee, .international, .florist and .solar. From these 113 domains I am only after 1 (one) domain name. That is because all domains are either taken in sunrise (some with bogus trademarks), either are in the collision list, reserved by Donuts, blocked by DPML or are marked as premium with renewals ranging from $50 up to $500 per year.

Uniregistry launching its Affiliate program

Now when you sell domain registrations at Uniregistry, we’ll pay you for the sale of the name, and for the renewal when the registrant re-ups. We intend to offer all viable extensions, at viable retail prices with viable payouts to the affiliate – all on the most advanced registrar in the domain name business.

While there are no guarantees the conversions will ignite the way they did for me in the early days of .com, this is a valuable tool that is worth experimenting with as viable low price extensions like .link .photo and .pics come out this April – and it’s certainly a fine way to get a discount on your own purchases of the names you’re buying anyway!

DNS Testing New gTLD Cross Sell on Landing Pages

A friend shared something interesting that he noticed when typing in random keyword domain names this afternoon. If you visit KneeBraces.com, a domain name that is owned by Frank Schilling’s Name Administration and parked via DomainNameSales.com, check out the link below the PPC advertising links:

“This domain is registered. Click here to buy KneeBraces.Email”
