Don’t make this expensive mistakes with your domains

22 September 2011

Domains may only cost an annual fee of $10, but they can also be very valuable assets. People can sometimes become complacent with them and in this case, very costly. The owner of investmentproperty.com.au failed to renew the domain and it subsequently “dropped” and was then put up for sale at an auction. The domain […]

Picking up domains on Snapnames

15 April 2009

You have a great idea for a website and have thought of a good name. You check the name on your favorite registar only to find the .com .net and .org are all taken. Even if the .biz was available, I don’t think I would ever use the extension. .info though is not bad if […]

Most people starting a new business or website, spend quite a bit of time brainstorming names for their business. Even if it is an offline business, you will probably still need to check if the .com is available. No point naming your business, only to find the .com is being used by a less than […]

I just won my first .asia domain through the auction system. To participate in auctions you need to have registered the domain during the landrush period. I was the only bidder on the domain and I got it for $10. The domain is ubud.asia. Ubud is a beautiful town in Bali. I like the registering […]

I have written a bit about dot Asia registrations and I was successful with a couple of domains. Some other domains which other people also applied for during the landrush period are now up for auction. Only the other people who applied for the domain during the landrush period can enter the auction. I currently […]

.asia has now gone live

I was sitting here having dinner and just happened to bring up the .asia page. I knew roughly when the clock was going to tick over, but I wasn’t really intentionally waiting for it. I just registered a whole bunch of great names, using up all of money in my Paypal account. They weren’t on […]

My first .asia name

One of my .asia domain applications has been accepted. It is a two-word domain and nothing too special. No word on all of the other domains I applied for. The landrush period is over in two days. I checked back on the dot asia website and can see one domain I put an application for […]

.Asia TLD update

It is just 20 days to now until the start of the .asia landrush. I have pre-registered a few different domains and if I get any of them I think I could make some money from them down the track. I was a little confused as to exactly how the process works because on the […]

Domains in the Australian media

29 January 2008

0 Comments

It is pretty rare to read about internet and affiliate marketing in the Australian media and even rarer to hear about domains. The Sydney Morning Herald has an article on legendary domainer, Rick Schwartz. Yet Schwartz rakes in millions of dollars in annual income from his 6000-odd properties and recently sold one for $US750,000 after […]

.asia coming soon

6 January 2008

Yet another new extension will be released soon. A .asia extension makes sense to me, since we have a .eu extension already. It is also another chance for domain registers to make a killing and people who trade domain names. Asia also has some of the fastest growing economies in the world. You can pre-register […]
