Learn. Help. Support. Smile.
That’s the motto for Michael Cyger’s, soon-to-be legendary, Domain Social event. On this week’s edition, of the best virtual-happy-hour on the planet, Michael reminded me of how long it’s been since I’ve written on DNGeek.
So here I am guilt writing, and sharing, a quick list of my recent domaining discoveries.
Quarantine Magazine – For the past ten Fridays, DNAcademy has sponsored a 2-hour, Zoom call that let’s you have a beer (or two) with some of the brightest minds in the domain industry. It features up to 100 attendees and Q&A by both seasoned pros and aspiring newbies from around the world. You just can’t beat it.
The sessions are free, BYOB and you can sign up here or watch past episodes on YouTube.
Mosh with Josh – Another new treat is the podcast series by domainer Josh Reason. In this daily, easy listening, 10 minute session, Josh reviews and opines on the top sales of the day as listed in NameBio’s daily report. He provides informed opinions and commentary that takes you out of the drudgery of portfolio management and into the big picture of trends and sales.
A worthwhile daily exercise. Check it out at Josh.co (That’s dot CO not dot COM)
Monster Liquidation – NameLiquidate is a dynamic, reverse auction marketplace where domains get cheaper by the hour. You can buy high at $998 or wait it out and hope your fave doesn’t get snapped up before the price hits bottom at $9.
Unlike GoDaddy aftermarket sales your purchase is in your account the same day. The site is a side project of Rob Monster’s registrar, Epik. I’ve already made a purchase and it was smooth and easy.
Don’t Need Wiggly Ears (DNWE) – In February Josh Reason launched a curated, domainers-only marketplace called Domain Name Wholesale Exchange.
It’s a great new option for buying or liquidating inventory at a low, 9% commission. Go to DNWE.com for more info.
Hand Regging Dictionary Words? – You read that right. Just because a domain is a dictionary word doesn’t make it valuable. Still, we all love a treasure hunt. Right?
This new website, OneWord.domains, makes it easy by providing an alphabetical list of every dictionary word that’s still available for hand registration in four extensions: .com, .io, .ai and .co.
Do you want a weekly brandable review?
These days I’m too busy for blog writing but I could do a quick evaluation and commentary on aftermarket brandables that sold for under $200 the prior week. A sort of poor man’s review for us grinders.
Is this something you’d be interested in?
Do you prefer a blog or podcast format?
Leave a comment below and let me know. Otherwise it may not get done.
May all your sales be to end users!
