2020 May 31 – 738 Auction Domain Names

Pretty long day today. The master list was inflated extra long with really low borderline domains. Looks like 2 years ago someone hand-registered a ton of random 2 word domains. With my process being very manual and analog, there wasn’t much way of getting around it if I still wanted to find some decent names for you all. In the end it took forever .. plus I got distracted a couple of times helping out a couple of people .. and my PC was more-tham-usual slow .. and my brain is mush the last few days .. lol. Anyhow .. the list still has some good domains in it .. so happy hunting! 🙂

2020 May 30 – 700 Auction Domain Names

Pretty decent day for the list today. Managed to find 700 notable domains for you all. Been rather tired lately with a lot of brain fog .. which makes going through the lists much MUCH slower when it’s harder to focus like that. I just realised I think the last time I didn’t post a list was when my computer crashed over a year ago .. and the time before that when my condo flooded the year before that (still dealing with the insurance and neighbours on that). Anyhow .. have a great weekend everyone!

Are You Ready For An Explosion In Domain Sales?

Donald Trump’s recent anger at Twitter and talk of his government potentially closing various social media companies down would have a monumental ripple effect on the domain industry.

What most of the world missed, hidden in the financial crash of 2008, was that it wasn’t just regular businesses that closed because of that crisis. Right around the same time is when Facebook took off at a viral rate the world had never seen before. However, in doing so, it killed thousands upon thousands of smaller niche communities as eyeballs jumped to Facebook where you essentially could keep in touch and keep tabs on anyone you knew online.

The end result was a death to a lot of nice fun websites run by individuals or small groups. As those websites died over the following couple of years, all those domains were dropped.

While I don’t think it’s likely it will ever come to Twitter and Facebook closing their doors, given the erratic nature of the current U.S. administration, the probability is not absolute zero. That being said, there’s a slightly higher, yet still slim chance that there could be some form of changes coming on the horizon.

Ironically enough, the social media giants like Facebook, Twitter and YouTube (Google) are coming to a crossroads where we as a society need to figure out where to draw the line in terms of how responsible they are for the actual content they “Publish”. I deliberately put “Publish” in quotes, because their argument to relinquish responsibility of the content found on their networks, is that they are not the publishers, but that in fact it is their users who are the publishers.

Ultimately whoever is decided to be the actual “publisher”, there’s the important fact that they have a direct financial benefit from the content. So an argument could be made that they still have responsibility even if they didn’t create the content. The final answer also need not be one or the other, but in fact, both users and the social platforms could shoulder various forms of responsibility.

In the end, that argument is a rather complex one with more nuances and consequences than most people realise. However, one thing should be clear to all … which is that if there are closures or strong restriction that are imposed on the big social media platforms, it will be the domain industry that benefits in big way as more and more blogs and groups move to get their own websites where they have far greater control over their content.

It’s actually something the online world should be considering regardless as to what is imposed on social media sites in the next months and years, but if the U.S. administration takes drastic action against them, then the positive effect on demand for domains could be extremely quick depending on the specifics.

To all you domain investors out there: Get ready … Get set … G…

2020 May 29 – 811 Auction Domains Names

I hope you’re all getting ready for a potential explosion of domain name sales in the case Donald Trump shuts down Twitter. Oddly enough, I feel there needs to be more accountability from a lot of the social media giants out there from Facebook to YouTube and all the rest. But the ironic part is that by accountability it would indeed mean being responsible for the content in the way they are doing now. It’s a very complex and interesting debate .. one that I will not get into right now .. because you all need to get your domains!

Also note I have a bug in my process which led to the parking data being misaligned to the wrong domains. The problem has been fixed. Please contact me privately ASAP if ever you see issues with data. Thanks.

Anyhow .. another really big day today with over 800 domains on my list. Have a good one and stay safe! 🙂
