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 – 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, […]

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

For months now, domain investors both in the US and abroad have been pouring out their political beliefs, and into their daily routine.

Editorial : Domain industry’s dollars and cents

Looking at the calendar today, June 1st, I realized there hasn’t been an editorial for a long, long time. Therefore, I seize this opportunity to commit to a monthly post, addressing the domain industry and its direction. Tomorrow marks the 2nd anniversary of .XYZ, and the controversy surrounding its launch is more or less known, […]

DomainGang goes private

After yesterday’s shocking initiative by Tia Wood to take her blog private (sort of), we decided that the right time has arrived to follow suit. After three full and joyful years as an open feed for all domain investors to peruse and benefit from, it’s about time to make some changes around here, mmmkay? DomainGang […]

All good things must come to an end…

Every rose has its thorn, as the song says, and all good things eventually come to an end. It’s with sadness that I must announce the ending of an era. While some of you might be jovial and overcome with jubilation, others will find this decision unacceptable and selfish. No matter where you stand with […]

Geo FUTR? Footer? Future?

Time flies like an arrow; fruit flies like a banana. That’s what Groucho Marx said, and indeed, it’s been a while since our last editorial. So we received that press release about GeoFUTR as well, and decided not to post it. Why? First off, when a press release is dated four days prior to today’s […]
