My Weekend Inquiries Are Not In My Account Inbox is back from the weekend maintenance work that promised the integration with Uniregistry. The integrated experience is to be called Uniregistry Market.

I haven't noticed any obvious changes in the or the Uniregistry platforms but I bet there were some backend changes. Probably they are saving the big revelation for NamesCon 2016 this January in Las Vegas.'s announcement said that during the maintenance downtime "You will not be able to log in or use the Domain Name Sales website, but inquiries from potential buyers will not be affected and continue to be collected.".

I received all the emails about the inquiries during the weekend. (At least I think I received all of them.)

But the problem is that Continue reading

My Latest Domain Name Purchases (The.Works, Net.Works, 3D.Movie)

gtldsHere are a few of the domain names I bought in the past 3 months.

I am not buying any LLLL domains because I am not following any of the trends. I own a few good and very good LLLL domains for many years now and I am now considering selling them. So I guess I DO follow the selling trends, not the buying ones.

This summer, Donuts released for registration 1.369 million previously reserved domain names in 144 gTLDs because of collisions. The company made these names available in batches each week between June and September. The domains were released using the Early Access Period (EAP) where registrants pay an extra fee to purchase, followed by general availability.

I was following closely these releases and bought what I think were good deals. Others might disagree. Most domain names I bought have a renewal price of $100 or less with 2-3 exceptions. (

But a couple of domains were bought in EAP day 3, meaning these costed more than $1,200 each.

Here are a few of the domain names I bought in August and September: Continue reading

sotd4This is my first article that has been published in the traditional style: in a paper magazine. The magazine is called State of the Domains and is published by the Domain Name Association.

I would like to thank the Domain Name Association (DNA) for giving me this opportunity and especially Simon Cousins that is the issue editor and co-founder and CEO of Allegravita LLC.

The purpose of this article is to analyze the number of characters Continue reading
