10 Signs You’re Addicted to Buying Domain Names

Dec 15 2010

You’re addicted.  I can see it in your eyes.  Late nights sitting and sorting through names and auctions.  Checking search numbers and CPC.  If these apply to you then you’ve officially joined the “too many domains” club.

1. Godaddy sent you a Christmas card with Bob Parson’s family and his two mistresses. (just kidding Bob if I meet you at DomainFest)

2.  You didn’t know about the oil spill in the gulf but you knew that the .xxx tld had been put on hold at ICANN

3.  You decided to skip your sister’s wedding because you needed to keep the vacation days for TRAFFIC

4. When you watch television you can’t go 20 minutes without heading to a computer to see if a domain idea you just saw is taken or not

5.  Your browser’s landing page is Domaining.com

6. You give personalized email addresses to family members for Christmas

7. You think any domain that starts with “domain” or “dn” is priceless.

8.  You’ve adjusted your sleep schedule around NameJet’s backorder time.

9.  You had a one of a kind “No PigeonShit” t-shirt made up at the kiosk at the mall.

10. Your renewal fees are $8000.  Your domain income this past year was $3200

    Re: #10

    OK so maybe I lost a few bucks last year and this year. But next year, whewee, big dollars are coming my way. I am absolutely sure that MakingMoneyInDomainsInMySpareTime.com is going to land me a big sale!!!

    Ah ah, I love #10 because unfortunately is the reality for most domainers (mainly those who began few years ago). I don’t count domainers who contact me asking me to help them make their first sale!

    You have the DomainTools.com WHOIS button plugged in your Google toolbar.

    Estibot/Valuate are your gurus, and a dozen of times daily you ask their advice.

    Lol…it’s a matter of how soon one can get over all the sins you pointed out Shane. The sooner, the less pain one would need to go through.
    I wouldn’t mind getting Bob Parson’s exclusive photos on his mistresses though. Only her mistresses!! 🙂
