Sedo Christmas Auction – Great PR, No Sales

November 27, 2007

I was watching the Sedo Christmas and New Year auction with interest. The auction offered several prime generic holiday domains. These kind of names have special interest and value – see Jay’s post where he talks about, and Unfortunately, the sale seems to have been mostly a PR stunt, with no sales. The lack of sales is probably due to high reserves for the domains, although the bidding also does seem on the low side for several of the names.

Here are the results of the auction:

Elliot’s Blog

November 26, 2007

Elliot has just written an excellent post full of useful information for domainers and well worth reading. In his post, he provides domain speculation pointers. Elliot provides some great tips for finding unregistered domains that are worth more than reg fee.

While a lot of people state that all the best names are gone already, certainly there are a lot of decent names that haven’t yet been registered. I think that, especially for domainers new to the field or on low budgets, hunting for these types of names is worthwhile. As Elliot points out, these are somewhat speculative investments. However, if you figure out how to do this well, even if you only sell a few of the many you register, you can still make some good money.

Introduce Yourself!

November 4, 2007

One goal I have in blogging is just to get to know other people who are domainers, so that we can share ideas and thoughts about the industry.

However, the funny thing about blogging is that you don’t know who is reading your blog! So, to change that, please take a moment and add a comment telling me who you are, what you do and anything else about yourself.



Welcome to Domain Bits!

November 4, 2007

Inspired by Sahar’s post that every domain owner sould seriously consider blogging, I’ve started Domain Bits. The goal of my blog is to help people learn about domaining and make wise investment decisions that will pay off handsomely. For some people, this will mean quitting their jobs and living off of domaining; for other people, this may simply mean just taking that extra vacation every year to exotic locations that they have always wanted to go to.

Now that the domain industry is starting to mature, I think that it’s very important that people, especially people just starting out, have as many resources as possible to educate themselves so that they can maximize their chances of success and profit in the industry. This blog is my contribution. I’ll give some of my opinions, help you stay up to date with the latest news, and occasionally write more in-depth articles with extensive research.

I hope that you enjoy this blog and please feel free to leave a comment. You can subscribe to my feed or have the posts conveniently delivered to your inbox by email by signing up with the subscription form on the right-hand side.
