Zelle is the Paypal/Bitcoin killer.
For the past 4 years I’ve watched as improvements have been made to the ACH payment system. Transfers from Paypal moved to 1 day in the few years, a great improvement. So one of the benefits of Paypal and Bitcoin are the fast transfer (well not so much with BTC anymore). But you knew the banks would have an answer. The answer is Zelle. I’ve used it for personal transfers where I knew the other side of a domain transaction… now I use it with my business account.
And, like Paypal at the start, there … Read the rest
” let us also seek to stimulate regulatory policies that take advantage of the power of competition to reduce costs. ” Vint Cerf RFC 3271 2002
In 2002 Vert Cerf, the leading proponent of the Internet Society money grab on .org. was singing a different tune.
From RFC 3271 in 2002.
“The Internet is for everyone – but it won’t be if it isn’t affordable by all that wish to partake of its services, so we must dedicate ourselves to making the Internet as affordable as other infrastructures so critical to our well-being. While we follow Moore’s Law to reduce

Some investors apply the term GEO domains to anything with a city name in it. For me pure Geodomains are the names of states, cities and counties and places.
Here is some work we have done recently on the Pure US City Domain Names you can buy right now.

I keep a list, one of many, of the top 10,000 English dictionary words. I am usually using it to search some new gTLDs, or those gaining in popularity. I also use it to pair with popular suffixes like blog and forum, or brandable endings like ily, ocity and ville.
But sometimes you want to do some BIG NAME HUNTING. Everyone likes a good deal, but you can also make the most amount of money in domaining buying the best names. And let them reach their high ultimate potential. And Maybe you have to pay up.

Domain Name Investing Tips
As we begin a new year, I’d ask you what are you trying to with your portfolio? What are you intentionally trying to accomplish? If your not operating with some plan, I feel you may have an uphill climb in being successful in domain names.
Before I address diversification versus focus or theme investing; lets take a look at what happens if you don’t have a plan. My summation after being around the industry for 20 years, is that without a plan, you can end up buying higher than you should, selling low and at the … Read the rest
Your probably a better Domainer than you think. Potency in Your Portfolio.
When you search your portfolio do you find personal projects, “protective registrations” of some of your favorites in other TLD’s, and names you tell yourself you can always develop. Lastly, do you see a name and its future “if” you could build it out, and end up buying a domain name with only one buyer… you.

Is ICANN itself a threat to the safety and security of the Internet.
OPINION. by H.Page Howe
Recently highlighted by CircleID, The NRO, one of the more independent administrative bodies governing the Internet, took an unprecedented move to weigh in on the increasing move away from any sense of listening to the public by ICANN in its decisions.
ICANN has expertly removed itself from all accountability to the US Government, or anyone else. With a war chest of $300,000,000 and complete rule over its elections and rules; ICANN plays a constant game of jurisdictional hopscotch between those looking for … Read the rest
Ok, so its now 2020. If we still wrote checks we would have to worry about putting the 201x.. oops thinking it was 2019. The news about the 2020 election has probably put 2020 in our nomenclature in the USA more than any year since 2000.
But I still have one more year to finish my decade to do list, and that means one more year to do something that will make my personal best of the decade list. For the first decade of my domaining I’m going with selling 2 domains for over $1,000,000. So far my second decade … Read the rest
