2018 PMC Jersey Raises Over $9,000!


My 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge cycling jersey design is complete! With the strong commitment of 14 generous domain industry companies, the jersey sponsorships generated over $9,000 worth of donations that will directly benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston.

Here is the design of my 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge jersey, which I will wear on the second day of the PMC, as I finish my 162 mile ride (in addition to my training rides):

Our 2018 PMC fundraising currently stands at $10,700. My fundraising goal for the year is $12,000. If we get close to $15,000, we will pass the $50,000 mark in funds raised for Dana-Farber since I started riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge 4+ years ago. That's my stretch goal. If you can help with a donation of any size, it will go to a great organization, and I will appreciate the support. Here's a full list of friends and colleagues from the domain industry who have supported my ride generously this year.

I want to once again say THANK YOU to the companies below who generously sponsored my → Read More

Here’s the Design of my 2018 PMC Jersey


As I shared last week, I am going to raise $12,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute by riding in the 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge. I reached out to domain industry friends and colleagues to sponsor a customize cycling jersey that I will wear on the second day of the 162 mile ride, and several domain industry companies made great contributions.

Daniel Negari of the .XYZ registry offered to be the lead sponsor of my cycling jersey and is making a large donation to my PMC ride. His graphic design team created the design for the jersey, which I am proud to unveil today. The design was converted into a 3-D rendering by Jakroo, the company that has made my jerseys for the past few years.

I am very happy to share that the following domain industry companies made large contributions to my PMC fundraising effort:

2018 Pan-Mass Challenge Fundraiser


logoI will be riding in the 2018 Pan-Mass Challenge to raise money for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI) in Boston. DFCI is one of the leading cancer organizations in the world - both in terms of cancer treatment and cancer research. Last year's Pan-Mass Challenge raised $51 million for Dana-Farber!

For the third year in a row (and my fifth PMC ride), I will be riding the 2-day, 162 mile route from Wellesley, Massachusetts to Provincetown, Massachusetts. I set a fundraising goal of $12,000.  Last year, with the help of friends and family, we raised over $11,000. In the first four years of riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge, we have raised over $35,000 for Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. I couldn't do this without your support - Thank You!

If you are able, I would greatly appreciate it if you could support my ride by donating to Dana-Farber via my PMC fundraiser. You can donate via my fundraising page on

Diamante Eco Adventure Park – a Great Day for the Family


My family and I just returned from a week-long vacation on the beach in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. Tamarindo is one of my favorite places to visit. The people are super-nice, there are plenty of food options, most locals speak English, and it is a relaxed town. We love visiting Costa Rica, and especially the town of Tamarindo.

After making our travel plans, I remembered that Monte Cahn mentioned something about spending time in Costa Rica. I reached out to Monte to ask if he would be in Costa Rica while we were down there. Unfortunately, Monte was in Florida, but he told me about a non-domain industry investment of his: Diamante Eco Adventure Park. He thought my family would love it, especially the kids.

I looked at Diamante’s website, and I was sold after watching the video on the home page. In addition to zip lining, ATV riding, and horseback riding, there is an animal sanctuary and botanical garden. I instantly knew the animal sanctuary would be a big hit with my kids. There were all types of local animals – from monkeys → Read More

Ezra Borck Riding 180 Miles to Raise Funds in Memory of His Dad


On Tuesday at NamesCon, I will participate in the presentation of the annual Lonnie Borck Memorial Award during the ICA's panel session. During the past year, many domain investors have reached out to ask what they can do to honor Lonnie's memory and/or help the family.

Lonnie's 15 year old son Ezra is training for a 180 mile bike ride called Bike4Chai. Ezra is riding in memory of his Dad who wanted to do the ride with him. Bike4Chai raises funds for Camp Simcha, an overnight camp for children with serious illnesses. Ezra is hoping to raise $10,000 and I am sure it would be appreciated if Lonnie's industry friends would support his ride.

On Ezra's Chai4Life fundraising page, he shared why he decided to take up this challenge in honor of Lonnie: (more…) → Read More

Wishing You a Merry Christmas


To those of you who are celebrating today, I want to wish you a very Merry Christmas. I hope you are spending the day with friends and family, and the day is full of good cheer.

With a 24/7 business like domain name investing, it is important to take some time off from working to enjoy life. Hopefully this means you get to spend some time with the people who are important to you.

Merry Christmas to you and your family. Enjoy the day and the rest of the year. → Read More
