Why are Domain Names Important?

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.  I’ll finish at the end with some available for registration prospects in the .US namespace.

For other updates, one of our sponsors, Toweb tracks news and updates and quick comments on their homepage.

Our biggest list ever, over 50 names available after the drop.  Ok. So these may not be DnJournal top tens. But no bots. On the downside, everyone else passed or didn’t see. Good luck.

So use for some registrations, or to gauge what people are missing, or perhaps seeing and most likely what Domainers don’t want.

Sold: Dangerous.com for $49

2 Comments

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

# 1 You Can Make Money by “Buying” Domain Names (i.e. Acquiring)

So I’ve fallen prey to this many times, so its time to get real. I’ve said it before, domaining can be a delusional business sometimes because you can buy a domain name, tell yourself you bought it at a discount to its true value, and go home that day booking mental profits, thinking you made money.  Walking tall, feeling good. Your Up!

So you wanted to feel good and have a sale, you kept buying up until
