One of the things that has really improved in the Domain Space is data and tools.  We have more data, presented by different websites and apps than ever before. See our Domain Tools and Services section of the DN.BIZ directory for more.

Are you a website operator or builder who wants to pay for a name while you operate the business? Are you a broker/investor who would like to take down and control a name with a 10% down payment and 5 year 0% interest financing? Check out my take on names.club.

So join Page for a little Peach Cobbler and domain names. Page is looking for some new Geo Combos today, and some made-up brandables.

Welcome to the DN.BIZ Blog

So why another industry blog and why am I writing again.  Well you will see more than just a blog on DN.BIZ, i’ll be producing content in quite a few formats, but as to the blog, thanks for coming in. Why.. you ask?

I think we under-serve the general public on information about domain names, maybe on purpose.

Because I think we can do a better job maximizing the value of domain names for the whole industry.

Because of the generally nice feedback and appreciation I receive at shows and in messages and phone calls about my time on Domain … Read the rest

Domainers Portfolios after Passing Away

Deceased Domain Name Owner

So I know this isn’t the best topics to think about, but a recent sale of a premium name from a domainer who had passed away reminded me of my own estate planning for my names and issues around managing domains when the owner or contact passes away.  I thought I would share with you some background, and my thoughts and recommendations.

Ill do this article in three parts, for our three types of viewers and readers. First I’ll cover domain ownership issues for every domain owner, or manager. Then I’ll cover what i think would … Read the rest

Want More Offers – Buy Better Names.

Negotiating Domain Name Prices with Buyers
Are you not getting enough offers. You may be looking at the cost side too closely and only buyer cheaper names, and names you can get. Since everyone else could have got those names, your not getting offers.  Buy Better Names.
If your in domaining to haggle and negotiate with buyers, buy better names. A good 1-3k name bought at wholesale might produce 5-10 leads a month. Now everyone wants to buy this type of name for $50, and then wait for the leads to engage buyers. It probably wont happen with lessor … Read the rest

How Many Domains Should I Own ?

How Many Domains Should I Own?

So another take on the 1 to 2% portfolio turnover number that is thrown around quite a bit, is to reverse the numbers to determine how many domains you should own.

An owner with 1000 names should sell about 10-20 a year. Now I’m looking at this in the real domaining sense of end user sales at full price. So this is buy it now off landing pages or in aftermarkets or inbound inquiries.
If your selling wholesale, or quick flip or closeout you should be doing 5-10%, if your a full time domainer … Read the rest

Uniregistry Expired Names Now Available at Dynadot

Low profile launch, unpublicized test or New Expired Names Stream?  Either way, I’m liking the selection so far, although at $50 more like Namejet aspirations, than Godaddy.

See our video on buying expired domains at Dynadot.com

What are Expired Names Auctions?

One of the best places to buy domain name inventory is through expired names auctions.  Although right off the bat, realize your buying someones trash, they didn’t think it was even worth renewing for $10-12.  But for many reasons, business closings, cash position of the owners and mistakes; expired names make up a big part of the wholesale … Read the rest
