The Value of Better Domain Names
The ‘dream’ of working for yourself comes with a cost.
This week we share how a couple of old domainers make it through a working day.
I have known Morgan for about 5 years now and we both started our domain blogs around the same time.
Morgan has done some great work in that short period of time and has a great story to share. He has built a full time income from his domain name business from both the sale of domains / websites and development of his domains. Morgan has also written a brilliant book on Domain Investing called the Domain Investing Handbook where we are giving away a free copy (listen to our podcast to find out the email address to use so you can claim 10% off the purchase price with the coupon code “OzDomainer”)
If you would like to win a free copy of Morgan’s Domain Investing Handbook, then please leave a comment on this post and the one Danny & I like the most will get a free digital copy emailed to them. The close off for comments will be the end of April.
Morgan and his wife Daina, have just started their business Fashion Metric over the past 12 months which Morgan talks about in detail in the podcast. His domain business has been instrumental in allowing them to both focus on their passion which is Fashion Metric.
Here are some of the website links we mentioned in the podcast –

My guest on this episode of Domain Names Podcast is Simon Johnson from DotBuyer.com
Simon has just released a new domain names sales platform that is well worth a test run, it is not a parking platform purely a sales platform. It is very easy to add your names for sale and does NOT require any DNS changes to your domains. The service is FREE to join and when you sell a domain or website, there is a 5% commission.
DotBuyer features a large inventory of domain names and websites for sale across popular niche markets. It also enables businesses to view comprehensive search engine metrics and pricing on more than 154,000 historical domain name sales.
DotBuyer also helps to educate businesses by providing price guidance. “We have levelled the playing field by enabling businesses to find out what domain names have previously sold for. This helps to educate buyers so they don’t pay too much for a domain name. The historical sales figures are powered by Domain Sales App – one of the largest databases of historical domain and website sales, dating back more than 10 years with more than 154,000 domain name sales.
Businesses or individuals looking to buy a domain name, can get instant access to many of the powerful features of DotBuyer by signing up for a free account.
Lets hear more about this great new service from Simon.

My special guest on this episode is Erhan Karabardak from CooperMills.com.au
Cooper Mills is recognised across the domain name industry as the leading expert domain law practice. While we act for some of the world’s largest domain name portfolio owners, we also act for trademark owners in all aspects of domain law.
The domain name industry has grown from its infancy in the 1990s to a strong and vibrant market place both in Australia and internationally. In more recent times, the deregulation of the domain ‘after market’ in Australia, has created opportunities for both local and international investors, which has driven demand for our expert services.
The area of domain name law is highly specialised, covering many areas of law and regulation, both locally and internationally. Cooper Mills has more recently been involved in acting:
- in Australia’s largest known domain name acquisition;
- advising in some of the most significant domain law legal proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia;
- for global brands, government and statutory authorities in recovering expired and hijacked domain names;
- for Australia’s largest domain name drop service;
- for some of Australia’s largest domain name Registrars and Resellers.

Listen out for it!
In the light of recent facebook revelations it’s time to reaffirm that you need to build a hub where everything leads into and out of your site, rather than rely on properties you don’t ‘control’ That’s good news for domainers
Lots of news today. Ed talks about his recent Mike Mann interview, Danny shares a story about the little brothel that won, and yes, all the good names are still not taken!
Mike Mann www.MikeMann.com is the founder and chairman of Grassroots.org (501c3), a global network providing free services to non-profits and promoting social action. He also founded and manages Make Change! Trust, a charitable fund that supports select 501c3 organizations.

In many cases his companies exchange resources, talent and technologies in their never-ending quest to deliver innovative, profitable digital products and services.
In 1994 he founded Internet Interstate, which he sold to Verio Inc. in 1997.
In 1998, he founded BuyDomains.com (now NameMedia), the world’s largest secondary market for domain names, and sold majority interest to Highland Capital and Summit Partners in 2005, along with the “Seeq.com” search engine portal.

ICANN have just revealed who has applied for which generic Top-Level Domain (gTLD) names in what is expected to become the largest expansion in the history of the Internet’s Domain Name System.
Is it the real deal or a bunch of fluff.?
Is dot com dead?
Either way the lawyers always win.
And you thought every niche had been explored!
Online reputation management is another example of ‘new markets’ that are ripe for the picking.
What if you had a domain monetization vending machine where every time you put in a dollar, at least two came out the other end?
Well, get your monetization model right and that’s what kinda happens.
it’s not the size that matters, it’s what you do with it.
A little penguin comes along and craps all over you, so
a massive focus on content is required moving forward.
Today is all about domaining off the cuff.
We cover the principals of domaining and the cold hard fact that you need to be in this game for the long haul.

Domenic has been involved in many online business ventures over the years and was (and now is again) the owner of www.MP3.com.au and has a very interesting story based around that domain which he talks about in the podcast.
It was refreshing to speak with someone in the Australian business community that has such a strong understanding of the value of generic keyword domain names and is do great things with them.
I hope you enjoy the podcast.
