    Thank You for coming back Domain King.
    Enough is Enough with the GTLD Bullshit.
    Can’t wait until GoDaddy delists all those
    useless gtld extensions. If the extension didn’t come out in the 90’s I am not interested.

    My opinion of ‘Domain Vein’ meaning:

    XXXXXRealestate. com

    vs.

    xxxxxxHomes. com

    First is a commercial and residential term.
    Second is a residential term only.

    Values as domains not the same for the same city.

    Certain veins are valued to be owned by different type of end users.

    So in my opinion veins are often adjective/noun names.

    obviously LL. com and NN. com’s were veins too…but
    I think Rick was referring to real words etc…

    You are being the best teacher, what to learn in my first years as a domainer, if I had known him before, I would not be the same as a domainer, I could never demean my mentor for his work and patient with me.

    Years ago when I wrote my first research project and development of Artificial Intelligence and Virtual Reality, a prestigious international researcher tell me when I finished reading the project, you know that it is the Jules Verne of the XX Century and I answered thank you and ask me what teachers you learn this science of the future at your student age and I answer my best teachers were the second-hand books I buy from these sciences and others and pay it from my assistant apprentice salary from the Head of the Consignee Department Cargo Ships and Download, in the first company to work at 16 years of age.

    These professors of the second-hand books were from the USA and published in the same country, I read from the end of 1940, all years 50, 60, 70 and 80.

    He still has them and I answer no, since being second hand, many of them were old and I had to write a pen in a paper notebook and each one had a chapter of each science of the future that had to come some day .

    I still keep them all well protected and also be on CD.

    Happy Day
    Jose.

    Hi Rick — Thanks for your tip “A REAL Domain Name Investor knows the WHOIS is the #1 place to sell a domain name”.

    I emailed WHOIS.COM, and asked for more info. They replied:

    “Please be advised that WHOIS.COM is a domain registration and Web hosting service provider. We do not provide a platform and service of selling registered domain names. Your domain names will be listed automatically as for sale from our website if they are listed as for sale from aftermarket providers such as AFTERNIC.COM and SEDO.COM.”

    So thanks to you, I learned something new today! Cheers!!
