MERGE! 2017 – My thoughts and feedback attending the conference

acro.net acro.net: MERGE! 2017 in Orlando, Florida was the first local domain-related conference I attended, since TRAFFIC in 2008. Being local, isn’t an advantage, necessarily. In fact, a fellow domain investor from Orlando, stayed at the venue, as opposed to driving 45-60 minutes to the Disney resort area, as I did. That being said, the conference started […]

Domain registrars : One more thing eNom does backwards

acro.net acro.net: As I’m bidding farewell to the old school registrars that I patronized over the years, I can’t but notice their pitfalls. Switching over to a modern domain management system, such as that offered by Uniregistry, is the culmination of frustration, wasted time, and often money, as experienced at other registars. Moving domains out of eNom […]

Network Solutions : Going against the grain of UX norm

acro.net acro.net: The domain inventory of Network Solutions has been diminishing, since the introduction of competitive domain registrars. The once dreaded $35 dollar fee for .com registrations has dropped to the sub $10 range, but even to this day, NetSol tries to make it difficult for its customers to transfer out. There are two levels of resistance […]

Domain history: Twenty years after registering my first domain name

acro.net acro.net: Twenty years have passed since I registered my first domain name, on February 12, 1997. At the time, I was already involved with the Internet access provider industry for several years, so to some it’d seem surprising that it took me a while to get my own domain. For at least three years prior, I […]

How to do bulk domain transfers out of Fabulous.com

acro.net acro.net: After several years of using Fabulous.com, I made the decision to bid them farewell. My decision was based on several parameters, including providing timely responsiveness to tickets, which declined in recent years. Another issue has been the non-reversal of DNS settings upon renewing a domain that expired just a few days prior. This is an […]

PayPal history : Where to download your old transactions and history from

acro.net acro.net: PayPal revamped its web site a couple of years ago, along with its logo and overall brand. The platform is very popular, and although it’s not the most secure for domain transactions due to the “digital assets” clause, it’s still in widespread use among domain investors and other professionals. A huge headache that I’ve come […]

Domain offers are binding, but contact form abuse is rampant

acro.net acro.net: I believe it’s about time to add some legalese to domain name offer forms, such as those at the Uniregistry Market that I use primarily. Offers attached to domain inquiries are binding, and yet there is rampant abuse. When a domain contact form includes a minimum asking price, filling out that form with a number […]

Domain inquiry : Sob stories won’t get you the domain name

acro.net acro.net: Poor students, single moms, ailing septuagenarians – all seems to be fair in the endless war of domain acquisitions, as far as inquiries go. While each one of these faux intros is a class of its own, I must admit I rarely have someone hit me with a major “sob story” right off the bat. […]
