As some of you know - I do occasionally invest is some domains (usually generic domains) - sometimes to develop into websites and sometimes just as an “investment”
Of couse some of these “investments” are suspect and the old saying that something is only ever worth what someone else is willing to pay remains true - but I do know I am going to have a RESULT one day? (Please ! Please !)
Anyway for those of you who may be interested in this “domaining thing” - the following websites explain more:
You might be a domainer if…
1. When somebody on TV makes up a phrase you check to see if the .com is available.
2. When you type in a URL and get a 404, you check the Whois.
3. You own your own personal name as a .com. (thats me!)
4. You own your own personal name as multiple extensions.
5. You don’t know what GOOG is trading at, but you know the highest reported domain sale of last week.
6. You were involved in the highest reported domain sale of last week.
7. You have more domains than friends.
8. You purposely leave the .net available for registration so some sucker will develop it and indirectly send traffic to your .com of the same name.
9. You register the .com as well as the .net, and then sell the .net without mentioning that you also own the .com, for reasons stated in #8.
10. You have spent enough money on domains to buy a nice house. (Or two)
