No, Dan.com does *not* steal your domain names!

“Dan.com stole my domain in under 24 hours.” This inaccurate claim is part of a recent review of Dan.com, a platform designed for domain owners to sell their assets on.

End-users don’t care about the .com price increase by #Verisign

It’s a sad realization of corporate greed: Verisign secured in its .com contract to increase its base pricing up to 7% annually. ICANN, overseers of TLDs and a company that is supposed to negotiate better contracts benefiting the consumer did not invite other, potentially more capable registries to an open bid. Ergo, more expensive domains […]

I hate DST : Daylight Saving Time affects #domain investing

Daylight Saving Time (DST) sprang us forward last night, moving the clocks from 2:00am to 3:00am in the US.

Presidential debate #domains : Some fun exact match registrations!

Like millions of others, watching the 1st presidential debate yesterday I was hoping for an open dialog between two – very old – adults. Alas, it was a Shitstorm.com. You can buy that domain on Afternic, as it’s been waiting for 20 years. Tantrums and interruptions ensued, leading to a show unworthy of a ticket […]

PIR-o-mania : And now get ready for unlimited price increases for dot .ORG #domains

Your #domain names are safe and secure at #Uniregistry

A lot of ignorant commentary in blog posts today suggests that your domains at Uniregistry are in some type of “danger,” or lockdown. Others raise a “warning” that if the supposed transition fails to move your domains to GoDaddy, they are liable for only up to $10,000 dollars. The truth of the matter is that […]
