A few days ago, I shared with you about GoDaddy Domain Auctions disappearing before time expired as experienced by now retired, longtime domain investor Rick Schwartz.
Schwartz was figuratively robbed in broad daylight by GoDaddy’s Aftermarket platform as he actively bid on a expired domain that vanished from his viewing with less than 5 minutes this morning.
With no good explanation of what took place, Schwartz took to Twitter, and lit a fire under GoDaddy with endless questions, jabs and everything in between.
And where did this get him and us, the domaining community? Continue reading
Twitter lit up Friday afternoon like the forthcoming Christmas lights (🎄) will in about a week or so.
Although it’s been nearly 3 years since his retirement or semi-retirement announcement and the end of blogging, Schwartz has been actively tweeting, ranting, buying, selling, pontificating and more on a wide number of topics, including but not limited to domains. Continue reading
A week or so ago, I introduced you to the Facebook Graph API using PHP.
Although the Facebook Graph API can be used to retrieve a trove of wide-ranging data, I specifically showed you step-by-step how to retrieve the total count for a unique URL’s likes, shares, and comments.
A few weeks ago, one of my many websites crossed the thousand like club for Facebook likes.

And because I don’t have a Facebook Fan, Business, or Profile page associated with this website, this adds yet another degree of difficulty in attempting to understand exactly how many likes, shares, and comments exist for website URL, also known as website domain name. Continue reading
In this month’s BrandAftermarket.com domain selections, I’ve hand picked five (5) domains that I think could be easy and profitable flips, or strong development potential based on a product or service.
One of the many attractive things to consider about BrandAftermarket.com in comparison to BrandRoot.com, BrandBucket.com and other brandable marketplaces is price. Continue reading
A few days ago, I was browsing my Twitter feed when an interesting logo caught my eye: 🎧radione.ws.
This specific tweet primarily caught my eye due to the logo using an emoji, specifically the headphone emoji (🎧), in front of a .ws domain.
Then I read the description to see that the person tweeting then used a 🚀 in front of radione.ws.
So, I was confused at this point. Was this an emoji domain promoting a service after all, or not? Continue reading
