Yesterday the auDA AGM was held “virtually”. I logged in and watched the whole thing, and have written a few observations. There were only two questions asked! Not like the “old days”.Read more
In the last few days, two businesses have acquired valuable 3 letter com.au domains from me.
They are valuable because they are “short” – and there will always only ever be one of them available in this extension.
I share a couple of observations about what made the transaction easy from both buyer and seller perspectives.Read more
If you have a problem with your electricity or gas supplier – or your phone or internet provider – and their management and staff decide you are wrong, you can take your concerns to an independent Ombudsman. You may not be successful, but it offers some sort of safeguard that you are being treated fairly.
Does auDA the Aussie domain name regulator have an independent ombudsman? Unfortunately not.Read more
In what is welcome news for domain investors, registrants and entrepreneurs, a 3 Member WIPO Panel has just unanimously decided in favour of the legitimate Registrant of this generic domain name. This was despite a Complainant (with deep pockets) instructing Minter Ellison to go after the domain.

In 2018, I sold Domainer to Robert Kaay. I’d had enough of a lot of things, and I knew that Rob would well and truly carry the torch in his own way.

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.
