Top Ten Domainer Lies With Richard Head

By - September 13, 2011 - 8 Comments
It's finally time for the unveiling of writer number three.  In reality, he's an ass but the guy knows his stuff.  He claims to be a 10 time winner of "Domainer of the Year" but when pressed admits the title is self given.  He said he's been domaining for 25 years despite the fact that domains have really only been around for 16.   What he lacks in etiquette, cleanliness, and ethics he more than makes up for in knowledge and humor. Besides the  stuff this guy knows about other domain investors and this industry and his crude behavior I have a feeling I am going to need to work on my disclo... Read More »

By - June 10, 2011 - 13 Comments
Ok maybe it's not the first time you've seen it.  I had been working on a list of 100 Domain Investing Tips and releasing 10 at a time.  I was supposed to get to 100 but I haven't quite gotten there.   Here's my list so far and if you have anything you'd like to share to make up the next 40 I'd love to hear it.  Maybe something that works for you that may help someone else make a little money.  Feel free to disagree with any of these, they are just things that work for me and may not work for others. 1.  Do you own due diligence.  Experienced domainers don’t mind answering questions but 95%...

That Which We Don’t Understand Scares Us: Don’t be afraid of ccTLDs and IDNs but Be Careful

By - March 13, 2010 - 4 Comments
Over the last few days I have been working with Aaron of IDNTools on registering IDNs (full story at a later date) and friend Morgan Linton has recently unveiled his new site (he's evidently made some money because he bought the i in this name).    I am smart enough to know that there is a whole market of non regular TLD domains that are still in growth mode, I just don't know where to start.  What I do know is those two sites are as good a place as any. I explained it to my wife as buying domains for places where my electrical plugs don't work. I now have a whopping two days u... Read More »

By - March 4, 2010 - 6 Comments
When it comes to analyzing drops and checking through the names falling each day, we all have our favorites.  From Domain Stryker to GoDrops to FreshDrops there are a ton of pay services out there but there's one I use every day and it's free.  I'm writing this, not because I'm being paid (they couldn't pay me anyway, it's hard to pay for ads when your product is free) but because I actually use it.  Domain Stryker is the best out there, it's simple and laid out well but it DOES cost. has become one of my go to sites because it has great PR data and DMOZ listings in addition to the ty...
