I’m always amazed at how much goes on in the domain investing world in a single week, and this week was no exception. There was a lot to cover this week and while I’m trying to keep this short and sweet, I’d say pull up a chair, crack open a beer, and get comfy because there’s a lot to catch-up on.
Here are the stories that caught my eye in the domain investing world this week.
- George Kirikos launched his new blog on FreeSpeech.com, pretty hard to beat that domain name. There is no doubt in my mind this is going to be a very interesting blog to read, George has been in the industry for a long time and isn’t afraid to speak his mind. I will definitely be reading every one of George’s posts!
- VPN.com hired Darryl Lopes as a Senior Domain Broker. Lopes spent the last four years as a broker at Uniregistry so comes to VPN.com with a solid background and it seems he has definitely hit the ground running.
- The hotly contested .MUSIC domain extension is likely going to see the light of day according to a post from Domain Incite
- A company in Portland paid $600,000 for the domain name Carrot.com, there’s no doubt this is a great domain and the pricing seems pretty darn reasonable to me, there’s only one Carrot.com and now it’s off the market
- DNJournal released their latest weekly sales charts and a 4N .COM took the top spot with 1992.com selling for $110,000
- Rick Schwartz and Daniel Negari from .XYZ got into a pretty heated debate on Twitter, if you want to read it, start here and read keep on scrolling down
- Efty released three kick-ass new landing page templates
