Domain Investing news highlights for the week of January 20th, 2019

Domain Investing News

Okay, it’s official – NamesCon 2020 is less than a week away and you can feel the buzz as the domain industry’s biggest conference approaches. As me and other domain investors from around the world descend on Austin for the four day event you can definitely expect the Domaining blogosphere to be in full swing keeping everyone up-to-date on what’s going on.

At NamesCon Europe last year and Rick’s event in Asheville I shared quite a bit of video content on Twitter and I expect to do the same this year in Austin. If you don’t follow me on Twitter yet, or you don’t know my Domaining-specific Twitter handle make sure to follow @morganDOTlinton to keep up with all the action.

Well, you can tell I’m excited. Enough from me, let’s get to the news! Below are the stories from around the domain investing world that caught my eye this week:
