The clock is definitely ticking louder for me, so the time has come to seriously trim my portfolio.
I am putting up a private website that is going to list at least 10 domains daily. This should be ready in the next two weeks.
As anyone who has dealt with me in the past can testify, my pricing has always been very generous. And it is going to be even more so now. I’m a domainer by nature, and my modus operandi has always been to turn over and trade my stock.Read more
There has been a lot of recent discussion about our (current) sole expired domain name marketplace in Australia – Drop.com.au. Most of this has revolved around a perceived lack of transparency during and after the bidding process; and the incremental levels of bids a bidder may need to place.
Today Domainer wants to show you how our Kiwi cousins do it. Judge for yourself which you prefer.Read more
In this week’s Snippets, we look at some recent controversy involving Drop.com.au; more on a potential new drop catcher; two interesting domain complaints; and finally. a very nice sale!Read more
On the expired auctions today is the domain name ABO com au.
Normally an Australian 3L domain beginning with “A” and containing another vowel and a decent consonant would attract huge bids at auction – and much more at private sale of course.
But of course, this one is different for obvious reasons – as described in the articleRead more
Rather than just write a new single subject story each time, Domainer is also going to reintroduce a regular news bulletin of snippets relating to domains in Australia. By regular, this means perhaps twice a week at this stage! We used to do this some time ago.
Todays topics include a revamped expired auction platform at Drop; auDA’s new charges for external review; auDA’s blog link on monetisation; and finally, a solid rumour that there is a new drop catcher in the wings!Read more
One of the biggest changes regarding Australian domain names is due to come into force next Monday – 12th April 2020. There are to be new licensing rules that will affect the registration and renewal of Aussie domains.
My experience over 20 years tells me that there are going to be many registrants that wouldn’t have a clue this is happening. Hence the title of this article. I wonder whether the auDA Board and Management have considered a short amnesty period for registrants to get their “house in order”? It would be a wonderful gesture.Read more
On indulgence, this is not a domain name story. But it is about a very special event involving a long standing member of Australian’s domain name community – and of course his wonderful partner.Read more
Whilst I have lots of domain names, the amount I have actually developed over the years is fairly minimal. Like many other domain investors, I tend to “park” my domains with a professional parking provider. Doing this gives me a lot of flexibility whilst I consider future options. In the interim, I get a small amount of monthly income, plus can indicate that the domain may be for sale.Read more
In breaking news, the PublicBenefit.uk campaign to get change at Nominet (the UK domain regulator) has succeeded. Domainer wrote about this possibility last week.
The CEO resigned prior to the EGM, but the other four directors got effectively fired Monday (UK time).Read more
