There are already over 400 new gTLDs available right now, such as .music, .shop, .love, .nyc, .eco., .news, .hotel, .dentists, and .money, with thousands more soon to come. There is a huge debate within the domain industry as to whether or not these domains will succeed, and if they do, will .com still remain king. […]

Seller’s Remorse – GameReviews.com

In February 2014 I bought the domain GameReviews.com for $7000 (estibot.com appraised value = $63,000). Over and over again I had vowed to stop buying domains but I saw this domain for sale in an email newsletter and felt compelled to buy it, even though I did not have any particular plans for it and […]

2012 – A Year of Failures

As 2012 draws to a close, I though I would list how each of my business ventures did in 2012: The Bad Things of 2012: * I setup a bunch of new sites, but none of them have made any money: BigCelebrities.com – Social media rankings for over 15,000 celebrities using a proprietary formula that […]

I Give Up, Google Wins

For years I have been trying various ways to make money from my thousands of domain names. I sell a few each month, but much of that money goes towards covering the annual renewal fees (I pay around $9 per domain). It used to be that I could just park my names with a domain […]

KindActs.com

I launched a new site today at KindActs.com, to help motivate people to do random acts of kindness. I was inspired when I saw the “Kindness Boomerang” video by the charity Life Vest Inside on James Altucher’s blog, and remembered around 5 years ago that I had bought the domain KindActs.com (I think for $1250) […]

Interviews and Publicity – Do They Bring Fame and Fortune?

I was recently interviewed about my domain name business, and although doing any interview is always exciting, what made this one different is that it was my first video interview. You can view it at DomainSherpa. This was my first time ever using Skype or any video chat type software, and I have only ever […]

My 9000 Domains – Part 2

In a previous posting, I pondered What To Do With My 9000 Domain Names?. It has been 6 months since I wrote that, so I though I would give my readers an update: 1. Yesterday I sold a package of 4000 of my domains for $1.3 million. These domains were all parked (i had no […]

What Domain Should I Use For My TV Site?

One of the goals of my blog is to give people an inside look at how an Internet business is run. So, here’s a business decision I am currently facing: I’m planning to build a site similar to SocialGuide.com, which is a site where people discuss TV shows (chatter.usanetwork.com is another example of a site […]
