Although a two year old Medium post, I think this read gives a pretty good take on the buyer’s side of the domain name process
My comments after reading.
- Its clear we don’t do a good jump of making the process easy or understandable. The one point that buyers do understand is using an escrow service to complete the transaction.
- Buyers still think myopically a world exists where the name they thought of should be available up until the moment they wanted it. They cant imagine that if I didn’t own their name for resale, someone else could have clearly

Why are Domain Names Important?
The only connection for your content that you truly own and control is on your domain name. And, it works for everyone globally. All your content on search engines, social networks or apps and free email is shared – owned by others – under terms and conditions you may never understand. Its important to own a domain name to hold your digital content.
So why do I constantly talk about these special assets called domain names?
Because as the most recognized part of a URL, or Universal Resource Locator, your domain name gives you the … Read the rest
CCtld News and Update
On our twice monthly Cctld update I’l look at the recent .US Town Hall meeting. My takeaway was a “reminder” during the call that the perception you have to be a US resident or incorporated business isn’t really true.

Sometimes you just want a good name. A good domain name can make a business. If you own the name, you control the business. There are millions of names for sale online. How can you find the better ones?

Even after doing domain name investing for 20 years, I cant get hit with a new issue and thus learn something daily, even now.
“SOLD Dangerous.com”, hit my email last week. Oh no. I’ve just sold Dangerous.com for $49. This was a reply to my for sale thread at Namepros. So now someone thinks they have bought Dangerous.com and I’ve gotta explain my way out if it. Did I list it wrong, did I forget a second word. How could this happen? I had listed a group of 300+ names on Namepros, a popular forum for domainers. Was my membership … Read the rest
