Do Domain Names and Bitcoin overlap? Rick thinks yes, Konstantinos thinks no

Morgan Linton Morgan Linton: Last night, legendary domain name investor Rick Schwartz tweeted about how surprised he is that more people don’t see the connection between domain names and Bitcoin. To which, Konstantinos from OnlineDomain.com chimed in to say that he doesn’t see an overlap – just competition for the same dollars. The debate continued quite a bit on […]

Recent Domain Sales That Have Been Developed (pics): SiteGuard.com, SafeCore.com, BBNC.com, More

Domain Shane Domain Shane: The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the past few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
HomeSafetyCouncil.org sold for $10,900 at NameJet, and it looks like a rebrand may be in the works, as the domain redirects to StaySafe.org, but the About Us page discusses HomeSafetyCouncil.org, as “a resource hub to learn more about specific aspects of the hazards around your house or apartment. Our data and recommendations can help you determine the best answer for your family, be it a DIY solution or hiring a professional. “

BBNC.com sold for $9,850 at Sedo, and the acquisition was an upgrade from BBNC.net, which is an abbreviation for Bristol Bay Native Corporation, “a responsible Alaska Native investment corporation dedicated to the mission of “Enriching Our Native Way of Life.””

SiteGuard.com sold for $9,500 at Flippa, and it’s the home of a new web security company based in Australia. “Complete, cloud-based website protection that finds and automatically fixes threats, prevents future attacks, and accelerates your website speed.”

SafeCore.com sold for $8,500 at Sedo, and the buyer has it redirected to their main site at Amionx.com, where the company discusses its patented SafeCore technology. “Our patented and proprietary Safe Core™ technology prevents batteries from being the source of explosion or fire without sacrificing the performance of the battery.” Their domain acquisition corresponded with the timing of an investment by Qualcomm.

KingBank.com sold for $5,000 at Sedo, and the domain was an upgrade from jbd-kingbank.com. KingBank is a brand of products, as opposed to a finance/lending institution: “Shenzhen Jinda Technology Co., Ltd., specializing in the production and sale of solid state hard drives, memory, and memory cards, and create their own brand KINGBANK products”.

AgencyHQ.com sold for $4,000 at Sedo, and a digital marketing agency appears to be under development, but there is some work to be done…..the logo is “Smart Agency” (they don’t own the .com), and the website isn’t fully functional yet.

Zeneroe.com sold for $3,000 at Sedo, and I’m guessing it’s an upgrade domain, but I can’t find specifics. “Established in 1997 in Seoul. Zeneroe has the latest Korean fashion styles. Now available in the U.S. and Canada.”

ADNDRC Launches “Guide to HKIAC Domain Name Dispute Resolution”

CircleID CircleID: In celebration of Hong Kong Arbitration Week (15-20 October 2017), the Asian Domain Name Dispute Resolution Centre (ADNDRC) at the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre (HKIAC), the first ICANN accredited Uniform Domain Name Dispute Resolution Policy (UDRP) provider based in Asia, will launch its landmark Guide to HKIAC Domain Name Dispute Resolution (the "Guide"). Notably, in addition to UDRP disputes, the ADNDRC provides domain name dispute resolution services in relation to ".hk" and ".香港" (Hong Kong); ".cn" and ".中国" (China); and ".ph" (Philippines) country code top level domains (ccTLDs), among other dispute resolution schemes.

The 40-page Guide provides a wealth of information, from the most basic to the more challenging procedural and substantive issues that arise in internet domain name disputes, and is replete with helpful flow charts, relevant statistical tables and citations to previous panel decisions. For counsel and panelists who find themselves at the vortex of domain name disputes in the Asian region, the Guide also includes sections explaining how experienced panels deal with domain names comprising Chinese characters or Chinese Pinyin representations, translations or abbreviations of registered trademarks. This allows users of the Guide to take advantage of years of accumulated knowledge and "best practice" in the field.

Kudos to HKIAC for this milestone publication. The Guide is a "must read" for every serious domain name enthusiast. When it is available, HKIAC will post a link to its website, hkiac.org where you can download the Guide.

Los  dominios de dos palabras .com pueden venderse por más de 1 millón de euros en 2017

Blog Dominios Blog Dominios: Hay personas que piensan que solo las mejores palabras .com se pueden vender por un millón o más de euros, pero lo cierto es que no es así. Y si no basta ver el anuncio de las ventas de dominios superiores de 2017 en que podemos ver que hay dominios de 2 palabras .com que pueden superar esta cifra de venta. Es el caso de myworld.com, vendido por 1,2 millones de dólares (1,015 millones de euros). Fue la quinta venta de 7 cifras del año, promovida por Larry Fischer en GetYourDomain.com y adquirida por Anything.com. Aunque nuevas extensiones de dominio están teniendo mucho éxito, como es el caso del .club, no es ningún secreto que los dominios .com son más valiosos que nunca. Y este es un claro ejemplo de ello. Está claro que vender dominios .com valiosos es que  muchas empresas gastan millones de euros en campañas de marketing para traer nuevos clientes a un negocio, algo que también hace un buen dominio. Esto hace que muchas empresas se decanten a promocionar sus negocios con marketing y otras con ambas estrategias. Y es que en un buen dominio el tráfico conseguido sigue llegando para siempre, en muchas ocasiones porque es [...]

Herding cats and GitHub Issues

I Want My Name I Want My Name: A year ago, our GitHub Issues were a little out of control. Something like 500-600 open issues in every shape and form dating back years — at some point, enough has to be enough.
So in a beautiful setting of Buddhist temple gongs and snow-crested alps in Austria (at our 2016 Support hackathon), we decided that something had to be done to dig us out of this mess.
Scene: Flash forward almost a year, and our issue count has just dropped to under 200!
Small aside, for our non-dev/GitHub users. GitHub is a collaborative code repository and version control site that is all but ubiquitous among dev teams around the world. Within a repository (repo), an issue can be created — this might be something along the lines of ‘Our billing system is throwing errors when a user updates their expired payment details’ (that seemed way too specific to be made up didn’t it).
So once an issue is created, everyone gets a notification, labels can be added (i.e. ‘bug’, ‘user_impact’, ‘billing’), people can be assigned to the issue, and …. there it sits. Silent. Menacing. Mostly ignored. Waiting patiently for that ever-elusive moment in space and time where the stars align with team schedules. Each issue represents a single hair, and that accumulation slowly but surely clogs even the widest of drains. Eventually, you’ll be forced to address the tangle of issues, and when you do, it’ll be a soggy, stinky mess.
Here is kind of how we did it
Nominate a ninja: We are lucky to have Manu, our cat herder and GitHub ninja, who was able to pilot this ship and clear a path through the debris (sorry if you don’t have one).

Check old issues: Search is:issue is:open created:<yyyy-mm-dd. If they haven’t been addressed and closed by now, they’re probably not going to be. Also check for ones that haven’t been commented on for a long time (change “created” in the search to “updated”).

Say no: There may be feature ideas, enhancements, and so on that fall more in the ‘this would be cool’ category rather than ‘this is important and/or essential’. Be honest when taking inventory of the issues you’ve created and be realistic about what can and can’t be accomplished.

Finally, and this is our latest initiative to keep our count ticking down while ensuring important issues still get noticed and addressed…
Assign ALL THE ISSUES
Do the search is:issue is:open no:assignee — what you are likely to find, as we did, is that most of those issues are unassigned and left sitting in the vacuum of space. So here’s how we halved it in a week:
Ask everyone to set some time aside to search is:issue is:open no:assignee author:YourGitHubUsername. These are the issues that we’ve created and left in the void. Then you have three options:
Either Close it or update it

Add more descriptive labels.

Assign it! To yourself, to the most relevant person, to both, to everyone! An issue unassigned is an issue forgotten.

After a period of time — say, two weeks — any issue still unassigned should be assigned to the author. The author can then assign it or delete it. The point is that every issue worth keeping alive should have a champion. This champion checks in on it, keeps track of it, and over time, guides it to being fixed, patched, investigated, shipped, ultimately closed.

We might have some skewed ideas of what constitutes “reasonable office supplies”

Whats Your Name Whats Your Name: Even though it might be a little surprising to realize (considering that our entire business exists on the web), our employees work out of an office and need run-of-the-mill office supplies just like everyone else. But what we deem as necessary supplies can occasionally be disconnected from reality. (Just to clarify, we did not, in fact, […]
