TLD Marketing Pages History

Part II – This continued post comes from the .Monster launch comments

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.

Well I never got my .web’s, maybe my pre-registrations are still good. Watching the process led me to start an application for .kids, and start a registry solutions company … 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

After the Drop 4/1/2019

So is there anything left after the drop, anything at all worth registering. I think so. Welcome to After the Drop.

Each day ill show you what i think are some reasonable speculations.  Did you shoot too low and not get into auctions for great names? Are you sure you going to get outbid?  Did you crash early last night and just look and names with bids already.   Do you have a full time job and cant do domaining during the day.

Ill post at 4.30 CST each day some prospects that made it thru the drop.  Registrar wherever you Read the rest

April Fools Day

Leave a Comment0

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.

https://www.namepros.com/threads/breaking-com-to-be-retired-as-tld.1130433/page-2#post-7175621

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

See anymore, add to our comments below or on twitter.

Stay tuned for some retro April Fools Day Gags.

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

My New Favorite TLD

Leave a Comment0

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.

Leave a Comment0

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

Brilliant !

(Note this doesn’t happen all the time, but it did twice this morning for me)

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
