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 ;-)

Premium Renewals Just Don’t Make Sense

Premium domains

"At $5,400 per year, you’d be investing $54k if you want to buy and hold for ten years. $54k gets you a gem of a one word dot com… I’d be willing to sell my Fanboys.com domain for just $7.5k or Instability.com for $3,500, after which you’ll only pay 8-9 bucks a year to keep them".

Monte Cahn Shares His Domaining Experience

Investing in domain names according to Verisign

Extract: "Everyone wants to make money. But having focused, specific goals can help direct your activities as well as indicate when you’ve achieved your goals. Are you looking for a short-term (and potentially smaller) gain, or are you looking to take advantage of a trend for a potentially larger gain over a longer time period? Setting your expectations on the amount of your investment, return on investment and preparing for possible contingencies can help define your “entry” and “exit” strategy for your investment in a domain name and drive you to success".

Is China The New King of Domains?

Extract: "gTLDs are not under the control of the Chinese government. The ICANN controlled gTLDs are harder to seize without proper legal documentation versus their domains (.com.cn/.cn) which can be often seized without notice".
