Neustar Domain Names

Some Sunday Afternoon Thoughts


I am upset to see Pete Lamson leave NameMedia. I’ve done a considerable amount of business with the company over the last few years, and whenever I had a question or issue, Pete was always there to help out or point me in the right direction. I wish Pete all the best.

Back when I was doing more hand registrations, my friend Gregg) and I would email each other back and forth with some of the names we picked up. It was always fun to share what I had purchased and to see what he bought. We’ve also done some business in the past, although I wish I was able to get him to sell to me! Anyway, Gregg is selling close to 16,000 domain names, and he will give one free domain name to the first 5 of my blog readers who respond with “free” in the comment section (sometimes I have to manually approve comments, so it will be in order of posting, not necessarily the first 5 to show up). If you’re interested in getting his list (or interested in a free domain name), post a comment asking for it, and I will forward your email address to him.

I’m still working on the development of my first automated sign-up directory. I didn’t use eDirectory for this, and I will ask my developer/designer to write up a post once it launches. It’s very cool seeing requests I make for customizations getting completed. Depending on the success of this site, I may make some changes to other websites I own and alter my acquisition and sales strategy a bit.

With a month and a half remaining in the year, now’s a pretty good time to see if you can do anything that will make an impact on your 2009 taxes. Perhaps it’s a good idea to book flights for 2010 or pay for tickets to conferences and tradeshows in the coming year. Based on my schedule for next year, I am fairly certain I will be attending Targeted Traffic in Vancouver in June, and I hope to book the flight before year end.
