It’s been one week since I boarded a plane from Orlando heading back to good ole’ Austin, Texas.
I thought I’d take a moment to share a few thoughts and interactions from my MERGE! 2018 experience. Continue reading
Conferences like MERGE! tend to move at a lightening speed in person while it can be perceived as a long time when seeing the outlay of time on paper.
Although many points were about about bootstrapping, one of the key takeaways from Stefan’s presentation was how bootstrappers should constantly ask the following 4 questions at every twist and turn in their journey: Continue reading
If you’re new to the domain investing (even if you’re not), then you likely encounter a how cumbersome of a task it is to identify undervalued domains.
From NameJet to GoDaddy to Dynadot to SnapNames along with many more domain auction aftermarket platforms, identifying and narrowing in on undervalued domains — whether expired, public, private, or closeout — is a full time job in itself.
Thousands of domains expire in auction daily (as a subset of data is shown via DomainState.com chart below), and an unidentified number of those domains go on to be caught, or deleted and made available for hand registration (small percentage, but still happens).
Seems like every few weeks or months I receive an inquiry about how to share or whether or not it’s possible to delegate access to a given GoDaddy Account.
There are a number of reasons for delegating access to a GoDaddy Account. Often times delegating access to GoDaddy account helps those of us that manage many customers to centralize and become efficient.

Over a decade or so ago, I would attempt to manage a spreadsheet of customer logins for GoDaddy accounts. Continue reading
While settling down and preparing for the next day, I took a quick break to visit Domaining.com to discover any breaking domain industry news.
If you’re not familiar with Domaining.com, it’s a curation of publishers and bloggers that produce newsworthy content in regards to the domain industry news.
In fact, you’ll likely find a few articles written by yours truly as a contributing writer for TheDomains.com and DomainNameWire.com.
Nevertheless, always checking at the top of the morning and again at mid day, there was not much news that had taken place over the course of the day.
However, there was an article written by Morgan Linton — There a new domaining blog in town – welcome NZ Domainer — that caught my eye. Continue reading
I’m back with another tutorial that aims to help you not only resolve a longstanding WordPress challenge, but it will also increase the overall website performance.
Today’s tutorial comes by way of a recent customer inquiry I fielded not to long ago. The customer’s WordPress website had been integrated to use CloudFlare — if you’re not using this service, then you need to start ASAP.
I’ve integrated a number of WordPress websites to use CloudFlare, and all have witnessed increase performance, which has led to a bump in organic search traffic.
Although this particular customer’s website had been integrated with CloudFlare, there remained a number of challenges — browser caching, 30+ external CSS and JS files, and good ole’ WordPress version query parameters appended to static resources. Continue reading
For the last decade or so, I’ve produced and developed a number of websites spanning a various niches.
Of course, most of these websites are considered to be local or hyperlocal niches — riches are in the niches.
Whether my own websites or websites in general, no website is 100% protected from content plagiarism and copyright infringement. Continue reading
