Well We Did It: We Made It Through Another Year And December Traffic Up 400%

By - December 31, 2011 - 11 Comments
If you know me, you know I prefer to skip the big celebrations (I'll be playing monopoly and drinking Corona with my family tonight)  and enjoy each and every day.  The advertisers (please click them after you get through reading this) and readers are certainly appreciated but they know I appreciate them through my daily thanks and emails. It has been an incredible year with my domain intelligence, domain portfolio, industry friends, and visitors to this blog, all growing at an amazing rate.  DomainShane hit 45,000 visitors in December, up from 12,000 last December.  And we did it though sticking to...

Domaining.com To Pay Bloggers in 2012

By - December 31, 2011 - 8 Comments
There have been countless articles written over the last few days about Francois and Domaining.com's sale list that will be coming out January 9th.  What people may be missing is that Francois will be giving his 10% commission from the  domains that sell from this newsletter back to the bloggers that make up the feeds.  I have no problem with this.  No, he's not going to be paying bloggers, it's a one time deal,  but I do appreciate the thanks. I appreciate what Domaining.com has done for DomainShane.com but I appreciate even more being part of an event where everyone benefits.  Some get a domain ... Read More »

Bob Parsons Channels His Inner Hulk Hogan For New York Times Interview

By - December 31, 2011 - 5 Comments
This flew a little under the radar I suppose but GoDaddy's Bob Parsons recently did an interview with the New York Times that posted yesterday on their site. The article is entitled 'Bob Parsons Doesn't Do Subtle' and covers such topics as the recent KKR/Silver Lake take-over, Bob's current role with the company, his abnormally large earring, big titties, bald eagles, and why hunting is a good thing. You can view the entire interview here. Take note at how many times Bob calls the interviewer 'Brother', ala pro wrestling great Terry Gene Bollea. No doubt Bob got pumped up for this interview by watchi... Read More »

The Weekend’s Big List of Domains At Auction and Dropping From Around the Net

By - December 31, 2011 - 2 Comments
Well, that year went fast.  Time to start another.  A special thanks to Dropday.com for letting me use their tool for free.  It really has served me well. Now onto some names I like that are up for grabs this weekend. PetrolStations.com Just because you call it a gas station doesn't mean this isn't valuable.  The UK and Singapore call them petrol stations.  I wonder if they have 120 OZ drinks there too. LifePolicies.com Not exactly how I would type it out but 1500 searches and $14 CPC.  $14,000 at valuate.com NameZone.com I hated stepping into the FriendZone in college but the namezone? ...

This Weight Machine Represents That Domain You Were Going To Develop

By - December 30, 2011 - 4 Comments
See this weight machine?  It looks like a regular old weight machine but it's also an analogy for that domain you bought because you are going to develop it out.  Both of them never got touched and just sat there wasting money waiting for something to happen that never did. That weight machine is my weight machine.  Or WAS my weight machine.  It was sitting in my basement for 3 years.  I got it because I had this great idea that I was going to work out.  You've heard the story.  Heck, you've probably been the story. It's told by millions of people this time of year.  "I'm going to get in shap... Read More »
