Domain Investing News Highlights for the week of April 8th, 2019

So I decided to get creative and put together a new image for my weekly news highlights. Looking at it now, I’m thinking it might be more ridiculous than I intended since I do have a pretty big goofy face, in cartoon or photographic form. But I’m going with it.

Another week is now behind us and as usual there was a lot going on in the Domain Investing world. I’ve done my best to highlight stories that I think you’ll find interesting, and can help you stay in the loop if you’ve had a busy week away from the domain name world.

So let’s dive in – here’s what happened in the Domain Investing world last this week!
