Sedo has announced the increase of its domain listing price cap, from $10,000 dollars to $50,000 USD. Until recently, the lower listing threshold for domain auctions without prior authorization created a lot of red tape for Sedo; with the new limit in place, every Sedo customer can add domains priced up to $50,000 dollars to […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
One of the issues with WHOIS, as implemented by ICANN, is that it does not keep track of WHOIS history.

Today is President’s Day in the US, and Donald Trump’s first; it’s a federal holiday so schools, banks and financial institutions are closed.

Domains cannot incorporate apostrophes, so if the domain PresidentsDay.com looks odd, so be it. Registered […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
