Daily Poll: How Much Do You Spend on Domain Auctions Annually?

5

Just about every day, I either participate in or follow a wide variety of domain name auctions. I am an active bidder on NameJet and GoDaddy Auctions, and I occasionally bid on DropCatch.com as well.

Today’s poll question is How Much Do You Spend on Domain Auctions Annually? You are invited to vote in the poll below and are welcome to share additional thoughts in the comment section.


Daily Poll: Will Rick Schwartz Return to Twitter in 2018?

Rick Schwartz seems to have shut down his @domainking Twitter account last week. Rick had a popular (and verified) Twitter account that shared insight and generated a great deal of discussion about domain names. I believe Rick also announced that he owns (or owned, whatever the case currently may be) seven figures worth of Twitter stock.

Rick announced his departure from blogging a few years ago, and he pretty much stayed true to that with only a handful of blog posts since that point. Today’s poll question is will Rick Schwartz Return to Twitter in 2018?

Daily Poll: Will Domain Sales Improve in 2018?

5

With the start of the new year, I thought I would launch a new feature called “poll of the day.” Each morning, (for as long as I find it interesting and enjoyable), I will publish a poll question. Some poll questions will be highly topical related to current events and news in the domain industry and others will be more generic to learn about industry habits and interests. The idea is to start a discussion about a variety of topics I think readers will find interesting.

Today’s poll question is Will Domain Sales Improve in 2018? Perhaps the US tax bill will be an impetus for an increase in domain sales. Maybe 2017 was a high water year and domain name sales will not be as good this year.
