Daily Poll: Do You Use Domain Brokers to Sell Domain Names?

0

I don't regularly use domain brokers to sell my domain names. There are some exceptional brokers, but I typically do my own marketing when I am looking to sell a domain name. I have worked with several brokers before - both when buying a domain name and selling a domain name. There are certainly some standout brokers in the industry who do a great job on behalf of their clients.

Daily Poll: Do You Manage Your Own Inbound Leads?

4

When someone inquires about a domain name I own, I negotiate with them. The negotiation is one of the more riveting aspects of domain name ownership, and I enjoy it. Some people don't feel comfortable negotiating and others prefer to use an expert - like a domain broker - when they get inbound leads. The thinking (from what I understand) is that they will end up with a better price if they work with someone who negotiates for a living, even after commission, than if they negotiated on their own. A negotiation can be stressful and time consuming, so handing off a negotiation to someone else is desirable for some people.

ccTLD domain names remain popular in many countries. In addition, companies, especially startups, continue to use some of the more popular ccTLD domain names for their websites - either because they're "cool" or they make solid domain hacks. .TV, .IO, .ME, .DE, .CA, and others regularly appear on the DNJournal sales reports for achieving impressive sales numbers.

Daily Poll: Are You a Full Time Domain Investor?

3

I always assumed the vast majority of people investing in domain names do it part time to supplement their income. Investing in domain names full time isn't easy, and I think it can take quite a bit of time to get the hang of it and be able to fund the growth of the business while earning enough of an income to support yourself or your family.

I left my corporate job in November of 2007, and I haven't really looked back. Some might say earning some income from this blog would mean I am not a full time domain investor, but it's a small % of my business revenue and my investment business is what allows me to have the insights I share and the time I have.

In any case, today's poll question is: Are You a Full Time Domain Investor? You are invited to vote in the poll below and are welcome to share additional thoughts in the comment section. (more…) → Read More


Daily Poll: How Many .Web Domain Names in Year 1?

7

On January 10, Verisign filed an 8k with the SEC with an update on the .Web gTLD domain name extension. From the filing:

"As the Company previously disclosed, on January 18, 2017, the Company received a Civil Investigative Demand from the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) requesting certain material related to the Company becoming the registry operator for the .web gTLD. On January 9, 2018, the DOJ notified the Company that this investigation was closed."

From my vantage point, this seems to indicate that Verisign will be able to move forward and operate the .Web registry, selling .Web domain names to the general public. Many people seem to believe .Web will be one of the top performing new gTLD extensions. For today's daily poll, I ask readers to guess how many .Web domain names will be sold in the first year they are available to buy. People may not be able to buy a .Web domain name for quite some time still but I am interested in knowing how many you think will be sold the first year.
