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, […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.

Another month, another DomainGang editorial is due. Now that Verisign made its involvement in the Nu Dot Co acquisition of dot .Web official, we can openly speculate on the future of this upcoming new gTLD. According to the press release on dot .Web by Verisign, the managers of .COM and .NET plan “to quickly grow […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
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.

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?

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 […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
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 […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.

Saturday…time for another DomainGang editorial. It’s been 13 years since the South Park movie Bigger, Longer and Uncut. Great humor right there, and some of the whackiest jokes of the popular animated series. That been said, humor is an acquired taste, and there are so many subtle varieties of it; it’s hard for everyone to […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
Last night we posted the news about Digg being sold – for $500,000 according to Wall Street Journal. Many commentators wondered, how would this be possible, it can’t be true. Sometimes, truth is so absurd that even when it hits us on the head, we deny it. The fact remains that Betaworks bought Digg.com (the […]Copyright © 2017 DomainGang.com · All Rights Reserved.
