Page’s Take on Names.Club

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.

I am a paid broker for Names.club. You save 5% when you use code MAKEMONEY. The great news is all the savings comes off your down payment.

So a $10,000 Name requires $1500 down, or only $1000 down with code MAKEMONEY. Then payments are $141 a month for 5 years. … Read the rest

Whats Being Registered

So as i do my runs of five popular words to see whats being registered, Domain Scope shows be some recent registrations.  I think this is a terrific data source to see what real people are picking up at registration fee.

I had put in five cities so you’ll see some registration and my notes below.

My takeaways, most of the established services like plumbing, hardware, jobs hotels have been gone for awhile.  But for investors, take a look at some of the new growing businesses, especially in the hemp,cbd space.

We wrote about these names last month in our … Read the rest

TLD Marketing Thank You Daniel Negari and .Monster

So isn’t it nice to see some marketing (besides registrar channel and price discounting)  for a New Tld. Even if it was an April Fools Day Launch, it shows what could be done. Congratulations.  Domain Gang says monster went over 2 million names. (sic) but every day is April Fools Day at Domain Gang. The truth is, its not so outlandish, it really might have possible  If it were a tld, I do think it will go over 5000 if they don’t discount pricing.

If I was buying some, I could at least say I was buying into a club … Read the rest

April Fools Day

The cruelest April Food Day Joke of them all.

Kind of a lemon today.  So far ive picked up some Domain Gang, stories, but always hard to tell onr a regular day if they aren’t spoofs.

NamePros.com has a couple of threads, I guess they were worried about people thinking they were real so theres a screen overlay.

NameCheap has always been a major marketer and they have re-branded today as NameExpensive.com

Stay tuned for some retro April Fools Day Gags.

And here a few from around the web.Read the rest

My New Favorite TLD

So I’m not opposed to investing on other tlds. Its no secret i have a lot and work with .LA for city domain names for business in and around Los Angeles. I also use .ws as the best tld for emoji domains, and I’m a long time .TV fan.

But here is the registration date on my new favorite, any guesses? It could be a new tlds, existing tld or cctld.  50 Topcoin to the first one who gets the answer.

Gamechanger – Domains Now Show $99 a Year at Godaddy … Brilliant!

Godaddy Available Domain Names now show $99 a Year. Brilliant!

So when you search for a single domain name, Godaddy will now show its available, and only $99 a year. Includes website and email.  Brilliant. This is what people want.

They get a fully protected domain name, email and a website. Boom, done!!

I think it will take about 30 days for everyone else to jump on board.  This takes all the hard decision making out of the equation. Domain names have always … Read the rest

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
