Two More Keynotes Added to NamesCon Europe

3

NamesCon Europe added two additional keynote speakers to the agenda today. Frank Schilling, founder of Uniregistry, and professional surfer João de Macedo will be delivering keynote addresses during next month’s conference in Portugal. NamesCon previously announced the conference panel topics, as well as a keynote from another professional surfer, Andrew Cotton.

Here’s the information that was shared about the two keynotes in a newsletter sent this morning:

Poll: Will .Amazon be a Gamechanger for New Extensions?

3

I believe that Domain Incite was the first domain name industry website to break the news that Amazon will almost certainly be getting the rights to operate the .Amazon domain name extension. Domain Name Wire and OnlineDomain.com also wrote articles about the .Amazon extension and what it might mean for Amazon and the new domain name extensions as a whole.

Rick Schwartz Has Made $30 MILLION via PPC Parking

If you don’t follow Rick Schwartz (Domain King) on Twitter, you should. I don’t agree with everything he says nor do I always agree with his approach to the business of domain investing, but there is no doubt that he is one of the most successful domain investors of all time. The way he operated his business over the years has put him in a position today that allows him to do whatever he wants. He maintains an exceptional domain name portfolio, and it continues to pay dividends for him.

Late last week, Rick replied to someone in a tweet and revealed that he has made $30 million in revenue via PPC parking. See the tweet for yourself:

Poll: Which Design Do You Like Better?

6

I think you already know how important Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Pan-Mass Challenge are to me. I ride in the PMC to raise funds for Dana-Farber, and one of the most fun ways to do that is to create a special bike jersey to wear on the second day of the ride and during my final training rides (not to mention after the ride as well).

Not only is the .XYZ Registry the lead sponsor for the Pan-Mass Challenge jersey that John Berryhill and I will wear on the second day of the PMC, XYZ’s Amy Brown was also kind enough to design it. Amy created two special jersey designs that I think are great. In fact, John and I couldn’t decide which jersey we should wear. I created the poll below for readers to help us choose the jersey design we will wear.

DomainMarket.com Removes Prices from Landing Pages

15

About a month ago, I noticed a change to the standard DomainMarket.com landing pages. Mike Mann added a photo of domain broker Tracy Fogarty along with her contact information. It was similar in fashion to how some real estate agents present their home listings and business cards.

Yesterday evening, I noticed a small in scale but major change that seems to have been implemented across the board on DomainMarket.com domain name landing pages. Check out the screenshot of Cashless.com:

MakeMeaning.com Sells for $710

5

A couple of months ago, I wanted to check on the hours of Make Meaning, a once popular and growing children’s shop where I previously took our daughter to make custom candles. Unfortunately, my Google searching revealed that the retail chain had shut all of its locations. The company had used MakeMeaning.com for its corporate website when it was operational.
