Puppies and Domain Names

This is a Puppy

They need to be loved, and given food and water.. and they love you back. They mean something. You care about them, you invest in them, sacrifice for them.

This is another small dog..it should not be left alone, it should be taken in, it should not be let out to face the world alone.. You should sacrifice for this dog. You should spend money on this dog. You should put the needs of this animal before your own.  Let it become part of the family.

 

Now puppies are one thing, and bad domain names … Read the rest

I have been around the New Tld space since 1998 when if first saw the chatter about .web. I pre-registered some and thought what a great chance to own some brands in a non .com. Its hard to imagine with only tens of millions of names registered in .com at that time, it still seemed like everything was taken.

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 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

I just bought a 34 Character Dictionary Word .Net; Am I Wrong?

Its a Saturday night and ain’t got nobody, i got some money cause i just got paid…..
Cat Stevens

So i’m scrolling around doing some research on domain names and decided i wanted a one word domain name, now we know all the ones in .com are taken so i tried .net and .org, and limited myself to something taken in a bunch of other extensions.

So I searched through all the names that have ever been registered in .net and came up with a word known by almost every US and England kid over 30….but it goes against the … Read the rest
