Another reputation disaster: .XYZ takes back tens of NNN.xyz domain names

This is getting ridiculous from all aspects. I can’t even keep up with all the ridiculousness. Just after .XYZ launched this ridiculous promotion offering 1.111 billion numeric .xyz domain names at under a buck, a few people found tens of NNN.xyz domains available to register and of course went ahead and registered them. Isn’t this …

Comparing Bitcoin with .XYZ domains! Doesn’t anyone care about credibility anymore?

I received one of the most ridiculous emails today from Frank Schilling, Founder and CEO of Uniregistry. The email is informing all Uniregistry customers of this new great “opportunity”. Uniregistry offers 1.111 billion (yes billion!) .xyz domains for $0.99 per year to register, renew, and transfer. These domains, coined the 1.111B Class, include all 6-digit, …

Renew or drop New gTLDs? The results are in and are not good!

Yesterday I asked readers to submit New gTLD domain names so I could review them and tell them if I would renew them or drop them. About 230 domains were submitted and I would probably drop 82% of them. (That was for “drop” or “drop?”.) “Renew” or “renew?” (questionable renew) were 18% of the domains. …

I posted that I dropped about 200 New gTLD domains in March and April saving me about $45,000 in future renewals. A couple of people asked me if they should keep or drop their domains so I thought to give people my opinion on their domains in a separate post. So here you can post …

Why do people tell me they will register an available domain and never do?

This happened to me 3 times in the past month. I had 3 domain name inquiries (for 1 .com, 1 .org and 1 .info) where the buyers said my price was too high (surprise!). All 3 said that they were going to register an available domain name. But they never did! Do you know how …
