    Wedgies.com Domain Name Story is Unique Read article in a new window

    Last night, I read Anthony Ha’s TechCrunch article about a startup called Wedgies.com and the company’s seed funding round of $700,000. The company has some very cool social media polling tools, and it seems that others agree enough to invest in the company. The company’s products seem interesting, but I was most interested in learning more about the Wedgies.com domain name. There often seems to be a great story when a startup acquires an excellent domain name in the aftermarke...

  • DomainShane’s BIG LIST of Domain Name Auction Picks: Saturday ,December 20th Read article in a new window

    Ever since Domain Tools stopped advertising on the domain blogs nobody seems to mention them much any more.  But I’m here to say it’s a tool that none of us should take for granted.  I use it every day to do my homework about domains and I really couldn’t do what I do without it.

    You May Get Only One Chance to Buy a Domain Name Read article in a new window

    There are quite a few ways to try and purchase a domain name in private. A buyer can negotiate directly with the owner, an anonymous offer can be placed on the domain name, a broker can be engaged to negotiate, or a domain name can be purchased through a domain marketplace. Despite all of the great options, buyers need to know that they may only get one good chance to buy a domain name.

    Did the DPRK Hack Sony? Read article in a new window

    My Twitter feed has exploded with lots of theorizing about whether or not North Korea really hacked Sony. Most commentators are saying "no", pointing to the rather flimsy public evidence. They may be right — but they may not be. Worse yet, we may never know the truth. One thing is quite certain, though: the "leaks" to the press about the NSA having concluded it was North Korea were not unauthorized leaks; rather, they were an official statement released without a name attached. Too ma...
