Blocked an entire TLD for the spam it produced

There is a tremendous amount of spam circulating 24/7 and domain investors often receive hundreds of emails daily. In recent years I’ve identified the two primary reasons the unsolicited email has increased in volume: Cheap, throwaway domain names, and Spam servers hiding behind free proxy DNS services With that in mind, the type of spam [...] Continue reading

Don’t fall for this double offer domain trickery

Got an active inbound interest for one of your domains? That’s great. Then again, unless your minimum asking price is met, that might not be a good sign.

Prospective domain buyers (ab)using GoDaddy to circumvent asking price

When GoDaddy acquired Uniregistry and its Uni Market, I had high hopes. The promise for an improved, combined market with “millions of eyeballs” was shared exactly one year ago, in February 2020.

GoDaddy is on the right path

It took a lot of effort for GoDaddy to provide a token report of sales, earlier today. Personally, I lost track of time; was it really in 2015 such numbers were last shared? Although the format isn’t perfect – very small sample of sales, four month delayed release of the monthly report – you can [...] Continue reading

Domain inquiries: Is being nice a sign of weakness?

It’s been 20 years since my first domain sale took place in the summer of 2000, and boy, do I feel like it was yesterday. Despite not using any type of escrow and receiving a check from overseas in exchange for the domain, that first experience was a smooth event. The reason: I was dealing [...] Continue reading
