I want to share the link to a post on DNForum that I think is interesting to read and has some good insight from a variety of sources. A user named vinsdomains.com asked the question, “What’s the most important thing you have learned domaining?”
As of right now, there are over 30 responses in the thread, and I think there will likely be more replies over the next few days. I know there are a number of people reading my blog who are new to the domain industry and are looking for good advice from others. I think this DNF thread should be subscribed to and read to get some ideas.
With all of my projects and my blog, I don’t spend much time on domain forums (or any forums for that matter). However, one of the things I like about DNForum and Namepros (and a reason why I think people who are new to the domain industry should become members) is the variety of members on the forums. There are people who have been involved in the domain business for 10+ years and people who just started. The range of experience and experiences runs the gamut, and a lot can be learned by visiting and reading threads like this one.
When you have a moment, check out the thread. If you can contribute to the thread, even better. The more knowledgable domain investors, the less spam we’ll see, fewer UDRP cases involving obvious domain names, and the more positive dealings we will all have in the business.
DNForum is a great resource for new domainers. It has certainly helped me regarding my learning curve. One member actually told me that when they started domaining years ago he was helped along and so they are now paying back to the newest generation. With a community like that along with Elliotsblog and DomainSherpa and many of the other excellent online resources it feels like a very welcoming industry to be venturing into!
I fear the thread is hidden to the public because it belongs to a DNF section reserved to users with higher level memberships.
It’s in the platinum forum…

OK, but then what I quoted above doesn’t make much sense since only platinum members can read it, not people that are new to the industry or even those who paid for a basic DNF account 🙂
I don’t know what to tell you. I think anyone who invests in domain names should make that small investment to have access to good information from a variety of sources. I imagine many people have memberships there since that’s a requirement of selling, and there seem to be a lot of rookies selling there 🙂
