Domain Veteran Nat Cohen Starts Blog

I think Nat Cohen is considered to be one of the original domain investors. His two companies, Telepathy, Inc. and State Ventures, LLC, own top generic domain names like,,, and hundreds of three letter .com domain names (just a small sample). Nat has developed several websites, including, and he is quietly involved in a number of other web-related projects and properties.

Although Nat has been vocal and active in private, he has remained more reserved in public. His companies have had more than its share of battles with larger companies trying to poach its domain names (like,, and to name three off the top of my head), and likely as a result, Nat has been an advocate for the rights of domain investors.  Nat is a supporter and current board member of the Internet Commerce Association.

This is beginning to sound more like a  eulogy  than an exciting announcement, so let’s get to the good news…

I am excited to hear that Nat is going to be blogging, albeit irregularly, at  There are a lot of good blogs covering domain names, but there aren’t a lot of people who have the same level of experience in the domain business as Nat.  I strongly recommend that you add this to your blog reader so you don’t miss an article.

Here are Nat’s first three posts:

  1. He is a pro, but is already making some mistakes regarding IDN’s. Wants and wishes should never be confused with facts.

    Maybe yes. Maybe no. Time will tell.

  2. Nat has alot to share that will be very informative and helpful to us all. I have done business with him for over 3 years, and he is a gentleman and a genuinely nice person. His blog will be on my daily radar. Fred.
