Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

I am still trying to fresh reg, but it's not as easy as it was in September!

I started a little later than most here and found a LOT of fresh regs that were still available in September... but now... NOTHING.

I'll get lucky once in a while, but seriously, everything is gone. Even crap terms.

I've tried this across a majority of languages: Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Chinese, and Japanese.

I even tried to get into some other languages, but a lot of those are gone also!


So is it just a waiting game now? The progress since October is amazing... seriously I feel like every month is a new milestone crossed.

Just wondering if anyone else is still fresh reg'in (other than .biz!... i'm talking about .com/.net!) ??

Useless thread, but that's what boredom does.

Exactly. (Thanks for the Congrats ). The window is truly about to shut, great way to put it.

I was wondering if I should even go back and pick up some of my scraps that I left behind! (Although 90% of those were picked up in March!)

Re: Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

We few, we happy few, we band of Moonies;
For he today that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne'er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now abed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin's day. (IV, iii)

Re: Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

I'm still fresh regging a small number of domains on a regular basis. The best stuff was gone long ago - true.

These days I'm registering generic consumer goods and services, 2-word combos that fit some pattern I like, names of common household items, .nets backing up .coms that I really like and, as always, some garbage that shouldn't be regged at all.

Re: Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

I still picked up some gems this month in .com/.net/.jp (in Japanese of course). But it is slow going, I don't spend much time on regging anymore. .BIZ was a brief exception, 48 hours of fun.

Actually, I slept like a baby. I was most unsettled in the first hour of the opening of JP .biz when I was trapped in a business meeting and dying to go home!

this simply just isn't true.

What does "everything" mean?

Single nouns?
Combinations with high ovt, google trends, bids?

Think what you are saying, our ascii cousins have been regging for a decade in one language - and yes undoubtedly most fresh reg ascii's are extremely speculative/rubbish - but they won't all be.

so you really think everything of value today/tomorrow has been regged by a minority in dozens of languages in such a short time? thats just silly

Maybe your acceptance criteria is just too high. there a tons of good brandable names, and tons of combos with good ovt and bids that are paying *now* on adsense sites i put recently. These are .com's i regged recently.

If you are determined to find names to reg, then you just need to spend longer looking or use more advanced techniques.

actually i'd recommend that a newcomer have a 2 prong strategy of acquire in the secondary market while also picking up a shovel and digging deep for fresh regs.

Re: Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

It is getting more difficult, even when you lower your standards. Tons of great domain names in dot net are still out there. I just can't stomach those yet.... Once in a while, but not often, I will reg one.

How about the drops?

I plan to restart my spider script one of these days to check if people have dropped anything good. Have you? LOL

That might be it. But it seems someone came in around February/March and just swept up the last of what I consider "good" terms (at least in Arabic...)

There are probably still some gems out there, but boy are they getting hard to find.

Re: Pointless thread, but wow: Everything's Gone!

Traffic is happening. I am having my best PPC month ever. Russian, Swedish, Polish, French, and Spanish are leading the pack with record numbers. Russian, Swedish, and Polish have always done well but now things are moving along.

I have been buying Japanese IDNs on the secondary market for the last few months because it is hard to find new regs. I have regged very few recently.

Traffic is up. You gettin anything in the XXX range/month? Anyone getting anything in the XXXX?

Just wondering if the portfolio as a WHOLE is up... like names that never got traffic now do etc. I want to sell some off due to some stupid mistakes I made using my Visa, but damn! It's so hard to tell!

At this point I'm 99% sure I will re-reg 99% of everything I have.
