    .Club Explains Landrush in Infographic Read article in a new window

    If you’re like me, you may have been a bit confused when you first heard about what a “domain landrush” is. I have to assume that most people in the general public don’t have any idea what a domain landrush is, and I think domain registrars could probably do a better job explaining what the term means. For example, it doesn’t seem like registrars are using the “landrush” terminology in favor of calling it “pre-registration.” For those of you ...

    THE BIG AFTERMARKET LIST: Wednesday’s Domains at Auction or Dropping on April 23rd, 2014 Read article in a new window

    I have begun to start building my short CCC domain portfolio again.  They have consistently been the most liquid of all the domains and they continue to rise year after year. It doesn’t mean I don’t continue to buy generics but I’m now moving a larger percentage of my portfolio into these type names. I did end up buying 433.net yesterday because I think that NNN.nets are worth roughly 10% of the dot com and any good NNN.net  at $3000 or less I am going to take a look at. Now ta...

If not however, then you’re better off letting those who are do it for you. At the end of the day, it’s all a matter of crunching some numbers. For example, a 500-word article costs [...]

    The Importance of IP Resource Planning in Government ICT Strategic Plans Read article in a new window

    It seems everywhere I turn, there's someone throwing around statistics for how the Internet and broadband will drive economic growth, create jobs, end world hunger and bring world peace (ok, maybe not the later). Sure enough, government officials are buying into that rhetoric and extending it in initiatives like national broadband strategies, cybercrime and cybersecurity plans as well as e-governance strategies. Often missing from these initiatives (particularly in the ICT strategies of mos...

    Just Because Godaddy Auction Price Was Unusually High Don’t Assume Fraud Read article in a new window

    Over the past number of months, actually years, people have become suspicious of unusually high prices paid for some names over at Godaddy Auctions.  Names that jump quickly or have high prices and low bidders draw the most attention.  All the banter in the forums and comments is bashing the system for lack of policing what they deem is fraud.  But I can verify that many of the prices you see are straight up legit.  How do I know?  Because I get the commissions. I don’t get paid unless God...
