An America 12 Conference Would Make Oversee Happy


Sports industry reports about a new NCAA college sports conference called "America 12" are bound to make Oversee.net very happy. According to report on ESPN  this afternoon:

"The "America 12 Conference" is the favorite to become the new name of the current Big East Conference's football schools, league sources told ESPN."

It would be pretty safe to assume that this new conference would prefer to own the matching America12.com domain name. Unfortunately for them, domain holding company Oversee.net has owned America12.com since December of 2010. I don't know what  precipitated  this domain registration, but Oversee is actually the second person to have owned this domain name (someone else had it a couple years prior).

Interestingly, the Washington DC law firm of Covington & Burling appears to have registered a number of other America12 domain names in various extensions, including America12.net, America12.org, America12.info, and even America12.biz. These domain names appear to have been created on March 5, 2013, and they do → Read More

Did Internet Traffic Pass Domain Sponsor?


I was looking at DomainTools' DailyChanges.com today, and I noticed that Internet Traffic DNS now has more domain names on them than Domain Sponsor DNS. I don't look at Daily Changes every day, so this likely did not just happen, and the number likely fluctuates.

According to Daily Changes, there are  1,242,445 domain names on InternetTraffic.com DNS and  1,124,620 domain names on DSRedirection.com as of today. Some people may use their own DNS for parking though, so this number may not be completely accurate. One other thing to keep in mind is that DailyChanges.com only counts the top 6 domain extensions, including .com, .net, .org, .biz, .info, and .us.

On May 16, 2011, it was announced that Frank Schilling launched his InternetTraffic.com parking service. Unfortunately, I could not find the total number of names on Domain Sponsor DNS at the time Schilling's parking service launched.

It's remarkable to watch how quickly this business has grown, and the number of domain names being monetized on IT DNS continues to → Read More

Oversee Lists Information.com for Sale


I read a press release this afternoon announcing that Domain Advisors is the exclusive broker for Information.com, and the asking price has not been publicly revealed.  The domain name has been owned by Oversee.net for a number of years.

In checking out some screenshots from the website's past, it appears that Information.com was once positioned as a search engine. I would guess that the results pages contained sponsored results and that Oversee made money on the resulting clicks. According to Domain Name News, it was previously used for "framed parking."

If you have an interest in purchasing Information.com, you should contact  Brooke Hernandez at +1 508 689 9569, ext. 201.

Will DomainFest Continue?


I've heard mixed reviews about this year's DomainFest Global conference, although the majority of them were positive. As I mentioned before, I canceled my trip a few days prior to the conference to tend to some things at home (all is good here). It's the first DomainFest I missed in four years.

The big news, it seems, was Oversee.net's sale of Moniker and Snapnames, which was sort of announced during the conference, although it wasn't officially announced to customers until yesterday. With the sale of these two assets, I wonder if DomainFest will continue in the future - both the main conference at the beginning of the year and the smaller local events held later on in the year.

As I recall, last year, the DomainFest website had links to the local conference agendas and dates for upcoming DomainFest events. As of right now, the only event listing is the most recent event that passed. I would have assumed Oversee and conference organizers would have the local events listed already since people need to make travel plans in → Read More

Poll: Are You Attending DomainFest?


DomainFest (DFG) is probably the most widely attended domain conference. I think there were somewhere around 700 people in attendance last year, which is pretty large considering the number of people who invest in domain names full time.

I have heard from several people who I almost always see at DFG that they aren't attending the conference this year for one reason or another. The turnout always appears strong though, so I am just wondering if you have plans to attend this year. If you've attended in the past but aren't planning to be there this year, why did you make this decision.

I am booked (have been for a few months), and I look forward to attending in just a couple of weeks.
