Leasing Domains: My Advice on What a Business Needs to Think About When Leasing a Domain

By - December 31, 2012 - 3 Comments
There is no doubt in my mind, as prices rise, there will be more leasing of domains. Leasing makes sense for many businesses,  for others it may not.  There is really no sense in discussing the domain owner's side of the model because it's all win.  They get cash flow AND hold on to their asset.  The real discussion here is for the lessee.  I operate on both sides of the model and feel I understand the benefits to both.  The first question I ask myself is.  Why would a business rent a domain and build a market on someone else's domain?

SHANE’S BIG LIST: Monday’s Domains at Auction or Dropping on the 31st

By - December 31, 2012 - 3 Comments

Absolutely Ridiculous: Registrar SpeedNames CHARGES for Account Info Changes

By - December 30, 2012 - 13 Comments
That's right. I've found a whole new level of ridiculous. I won a domain at Namejet recently and was awarded the name in a previously unheard of registrar named SpeedNames. It happens fairly regularly at Namejet. They represent quite a large group of registrars selling their expired names. It's what makes them great, and at the same time sucks when you have to deal with these small guys. Normally the first thing I do when I find out I'm at these small registrars is mark my calendar 60 days out so I immediately get it out and transferred to a registrar that isn't going to rip me off. I say rip me off bec... Read More »
