In January the most popular articles were about Topcoin, GoDaddy violating ICANN rules AND having no mobile APP, selling for $195,000, New gTLDs, Home.Loans selling for $500,000 and some other subjects.

About 220 comments were made by readers.

See here the Top 5 domain name articles of 2017 (Frank Schilling, bitcoin and .xyz, Rick Schwartz, Uniregistry, .XYZ).

Here are the top 10 posts for January 2018 in order of views:

  2. .NYC has sold 515 premium .nyc domain names for a total of $595,157
  3. GoDaddy has no Android App and people on Google Play think the “GoDaddy Investor” app is fake!
