Hurricane Irma : Stay safe out there, domainers!

With hurricane Irma – that BITCH – hitting Florida today, we’ve been taking a break from regular domain reporting. Preparations across the state of Florida, where many domainers reside, have been underway for the best part of last week. This one is much worse than hurricane Matthew last year, when we continued reporting. Our thoughts […]

Domian Buisness : Lukewarm winds in the domain industry

Yesterday, I read a funny story by the Finnish founder of the Polkki Moose Foundation, Johannes Farts. The foundation is responsible for tracking Finland’s moose online via .fi domains. I believe he did a great job tallying the current mood of the domain industry this time of the year: “You might be retarded and still […]

Editorial : This post is not about NameJet

This story is not about NameJet, and won’t mention NameJet beyond this point. Sundays are great days for introspection, particularly by finger-pointing domainers with plenty of time on their hands. Popcorn-popping discussion threads often attract tinfoil hatters and kooks alike; whether there is a real fire or not, such events soon become eruptions of volcanic […]

Editorial : What worked for others might not work for you

Time for the monthly editorial column here on DomainGang. Let’s be blunt: a lot of bullshit advice circulates currently, about what to do as a newcomer to the domain industry. The good news first: people are still flocking to become domain investors, whether part time or full time. The latter type, usually went through the […]

Editorial : The world knows very little about domain names but you can help change that

Welcome to another DomainGang editorial. As strange as it may seem, domain investors take one thing for granted: that by now, the general public knows everything they need to know about domain names. Let me tell you how completely false this perception is. In fact, the general public, ranging from common folk of every age, […]

Editorial – Domainer Passover : Give us Barabbas! Give us Barabbas!

A group of rowdy domainers gathered outside the house of Icannius Pilate, armed with pitchforks and torches. With covered faces, despite the ample darkness provided by the veil of night, they chanted angry words against the domain messiah, Jesus Francus Schillingus. “Down with Schillingus and evil Uniregistrum! Down with the gTLDs!” Icannius Pilate looked wryly […]

Editorial : ICANN and the future of the new gTLDs

Welcome to the March Editorial. Uniregistry’s announcement of a price increase plan, affecting 16 of its 25 commercial gTLDs, created a wave of discussions on a variety of media. The key question was the price increase, and whether it’s ethical, or merely a demonstration of corporate greed. The affected gTLDs are, for the most part, […]

Editorial : China’s domain over-speculation is hurting the domain industry

‘Tis the season for December’s editorial here at DomainGang, and this time it’s about China and domains. China’s grappling with an astounding growth in construction and technology, while suffering from social pitfalls as the world’s largest nation. With a population of almost 1.4 billion people, China’s economy is fueled by a massive inventory of consumers; […]

Domainers : Make your vote count, no matter who you vote for

It’s Election Day in the US, and also time for the November Editorial here at DomainGang. For months now, domain investors both in the US and abroad have been pouring out their political beliefs, and into their daily routine.

Hurricane Matthew : Editorial from an undisclosed location

Hurricane Matthew is one sick mofo of a hurricane. Floridian domainers would acknowledge that this is the closest that Florida has been to sustaining devastating loss of property and life, since Hurricane Andrew. Those of us that experienced the 2004 trifecta, take note: Matthew is a bigger hurricane, scraping the guts of the Atlantic coast. […]

DomainGang : Seven years of pure domain madness!

Time flies when you’re having fun, but come on – SEVEN YEARS? Where did they go? 😀 It was a slow day in 2009 when DomainGang was launched, as a repository of wacky stories about domain names. From the get-go we covered real industry news, along with parody variants, and each year since has been […]

Domain industry press releases : A handy guide to success

The domain industry has grown to encompass numerous areas that until a few years ago were disconnected from it. Domain investing is a lucrative, multi-million dollar business, attracting buyers outside of the core industry’s realm. When reaching out to inform domain investors and other related professionals about upcoming products, services and events, it’s great remembering […]
