Privacy and/or No Whois is costing Domain Owners Privacy and/or No Whois is costing Domain Owners Money but it’s Making BROKERS & Registrars Money! DUMB!!!


Morning Folks!!



I wrote about whois and privacy just last week. How DUMB can domainers possibly be?? I mean really?? I don't get it! Whether it is privacy or all your domains are no longer public it's YOUR choice. I can't even think of anything dumber a domainer can do.



If your info is not publicly listed in whois it may mean you no longer control the sale of YOUR own domain name depending on your registrar and your landing page. You may have effectively handed the keys over to each and every broker or registrar! You are keeping them in business and making $$$. Are you all BRAIN DEAD?? You may as well give your keys to facebook or twitter. It's insane! They have a new revenue stream and you don't!



Like a restaurant that is not on Open Table, does not do takeout, does not do delivery and is closed on weekends! And then complains about lack of sales and leads? DUH!!! Anyone need a CEO CROWBAR??



And then you complain about sales!? Really???? This has to be the #1 dumbest thing I have ever seen domainers do and there is a LONG list in my 23+ years!

    Domains are like people…(looking for a job?)
    I am the marketer
    I am the “whore ” advertise yourself
    I am my own pimp.

    I am easy and available but not CHEAP

    One of the first things I learned from the Domain King is that if your domain is great enough you don’t need a broker or one of the “sales platforms” it will sell itself. And if it gets no traffic you’ve got pigeon shit. Be your own platform and forward your domains to your main website.

    It is absolutely INSANE domainers are paying brokers 20-30% of their cut to sell a virtual asset, which requires no physical showings.

    Can you imagine a real estate agent taking 25% commission on your house?

    Take the power back into your own hands, the more powerful you make these agencies, the more they take out of your pocket.

    The words spoken above are forward thinking, all you holders control this space.

    Geez that was a low blow.
    I wasn’t ready for that.
    There should be some reference for being #1 in a bad way. like -1 ever or ~1

    I believe some brokers have a special set of skills but I’m such a fuking control freak that I prefer to do my own sales. Now when brokers at the big IP companies contact me I know we got a public company on the line and it’s at least a 6 figure sale.
