Thankful for Advertisers


It’s the last day of Thanksgiving week, and I have spent some time giving thanks to people, businesses, and communities within the domain name space. Today, I want to give a special thank you to the companies and businesses that advertise on I also want to give thanks to the companies and services that advertise on other domain industry websites. Without their support, I think it would be much more difficult to navigate the domain investing business.

There are many companies that have supported my website over the past year (in alphabetical order):

  • 101 Domain
  • BuyDomains / Direct Domains / Endurance
  • Domain Agents
  • Domain Capital
  • Efty
  • GoDaddy
  • NamesCon
  • Neustar
  • Payoneer Escrow

There are several other domain industry companies that support other websites and businesses with advertising. Even though those companies are not advertising here right now or this year, I appreciate their support of the websites and businesses I visit regularly.

It probably goes without saying, but domain industry publications and forums rely on advertiser support to stay active. Without this financial support, publishers, writers, and administrators would likely spend their time working on more profitable projects and lines of business. I know that I could not dedicate the time to researching topics, writing articles, and moderating comments if it wasn’t for the advertiser support I receive.

I am pretty sure calculating an ROI from advertising here and elsewhere may be difficult. I appreciate the faith that industry advertisers have in those of us who operate domain industry publications. These companies are appreciated and I am grateful to them for their support over the years.

There are many people I didn’t get a chance to thank with this very short series. There are many people I appreciate and am thankful to know, and I hope to be able to say “thank you” in person.
