    Jeff, I would 100% agree with you.....that's why I said that some registries behave in the matter I outlined. .CLUB is one of those registries that has ALWAYS been very proud of both the usage of the extension by both the domain investor community AND wider businesses. I think this is one of the reasons why .CLUB is so successful and will continue to grow....the team has an all inclusive mindset that embraces all usages of the extension.

    The names.club venture that was outlined at NamesCon is a fantastic innovation and clearly displays .CLUBs desire to support other registries and domain investors in a unique way. You should be congratulated for the effort.....watch this space for a blog post :-)

    Hi Michael. Good, thought-provoking post, as always. However, I don't necessarily agree that Registries should necessarily change their language. As a registry, we've always supported the domain investor community, and consider domain investors an essential part of our ecosystem and community. We even built a platform at http://www.Names.club with a program to support brokers and investors. That said, we also are very proud of .CLUB's real usage and definitely tout our actual usage numbers and frequently shine a light on various .CLUB live sites as examples. We also tout this usage to the domain investment community, not because we think they should do anything differently, but rather, we want them to know that there is real end-user demand for .CLUB, and thus there should be end-user demand for names they may invest in. Talking about our usage to domain investors lets them know they are investing into a market where real end-user buyers can be found (such as the $300k end-user buyer a domain investor recently found for "The.club" - which is now a live site being used). We firmly believe that usage is key to the overall success of a top-level domain, including the success of domain investors. We definitely agree with your headline - Domain Investors Matter!

  • I don’t know about you but I’m getting really tired of some new gTLD registries treating domain investors as second-class citizens. So how are investors treated in this manner? It starts with language. There will be statements from registrie...

    Happy late Birthday, Michael. Hope your day was a nice relaxing one. I would have added that you need some Me time with just you or with Roselyn enjoying your time together, but I think you have that already. Like you said, do what you love, and love what you do. Even though my job was hectic, I miss the pace and the people I met every day.

    Happy to help out Jim. Repeatable revenue is one of the reasons why I like traffic monetisation so much.

    Is Domain Investing Dead?
    Many people have come to the conclusion that investing in domains is dead and yet from my perspective the industry appears to be flourishing. The first distinction we need to make is whether you are part of the industry or a customer of the industry....

    My Business Success!
    As many readers already know I’ve been relating my efforts of attracting birds to my yard to starting a new business. In the last article in the series I wrote about trying to develop a new market vertical for my burgeoning bird business. So how’s it...

    So is Bitcoin going to survive the downturn or is this an opportunity to get in now? The prices are in $AU BTW.

    • I'm super bullish on crypto overall, but bitcoin in specific... I dunno. I really don't see much of a future for it the way it's been going. Way tooI'm super bullish on crypto overall, but bitcoin in specific... I dunno. I really don't see much of a future for it the way it's been going. Way too much infighting, and it seems as if they will never be able to agree on a scaling solution. *MAYBE* if the volatility settles way, way, way down it could become a "store of value" i.e. digital gold, but at present it's very far from even that. My money is most definitely not in bitcoin, I have little to no faith in it long term.  More ...

    • I agree. Hopefully the infighting will stop as a solution is adopted so Bitcoin can become a store of value.

    Eric Lyon from NamePros just sent through an interview that I did with Edward Zeiden at NamesCon 2017. It was great revisiting the 2017 interview to see what is still relevant in 2018 and whether any of the predictions came true. The video also remin...
