Does owning 1000+ domains give you a PhD in Domaining?

I've come across this a few times on NamePros today and other forums.

These people claim due to the amount of their regs they know what they're doing.....

These guys on namepros have pretty much bashed IDNs and said they have no place on the web.


In the ascii world not everyone holds 3000 or even 1000 premium domain names and we know it. (of course there are several that do hold such premium portfolios internet reit etc)

One domain or 1,000 - it all comes down to how much profit you can generate. The one with the most money is the winner. And sometimes, it's a long time before you know the outcome.

Agree. That is why the top Japanese idn owner (the one in my view) has only got 25 + 550 Japanese domains.

There was that Belgian doctor who owned over 200,000 junk .com domains and who - if I recall correctly - went bankrupt before renewals, leaving Network Solutions carrying the can and trying unsuccessfully to salvage anything from the situation...

In my opinion, it is all about QUALITY over QUANTITY.
Give me 1 decent IDN domain over 100 JUNK ASCII domains anyday.

Shear numbers are not an good indicator of understanding and may even be a sign of incompetence or desperation. Some of the larger portfolios are working on getting fair returns on very high levels on investment, rather than making a killing on a handful.

At the end of the day each domain is individual. If you are picking them up in shovel fulls then you need to be getting them cheap and to have a high success rate in percentage terms. In most cases that will not be happening, but there are exceptions and in the early stages of speculation that strategy can prove very rewarding.

My opinion, owning 1000+ domains does not give you a PhD in Domaining, but owning 1000+ IDN domains at this stage automatically does. The amount of work you've done plus you are guaranteed to have some sure winners in your collection.

I'm close to a 1000 IDN portfolio, and I can honestly say that my knowledge of IDNs is limited, as I've only been in this niche for the past few months.

I'm always learning

All owning 1000 names guarantees you is $7000 (minimum) of renewal fees per year. Whether you make $7000 of loss or $1M of profit is entirely down to the quality of the names.

Who are "these guys" ?

Be more specific and provide some examples.

I know lots of namepros members and visit the forum every day, and I've not seen any type of negative idn campaign going on.

Just because you met a few people that don't share your view on idn's doesn't make the whole forum against them.

Let me guess? You just joined this forum today from NamePros - perhaps your oh so subtle name is a clue.

This "war" is boring me to tears already. Whoever started it should think long and hard about what they have done ...

domainguru, please stop following me from thread to thread and taking your frustration with other people out on me. I have done nothing wrong, posted nothing rude, and find you to be quite impolite.

Surely that red color doesn't mean you are a moderator here? I hope not, because you reflect very poorly on this forum.

Good day sir.

errr .. that is the funniest thing I have heard in a long time.....

When you actually make a positive contribution to this forum about the future of IDNs, I will issue a humble apology. But all I am hearing is "blah blah blah".

Re: Does owning 1000+ domains give you a PhD in Domaining?

Yes, I think that is a little unwise. The Dumber than Dumb Fuck remark relates to the fact that this is the guy that imparted most of the orginal advice I got when I first started domaining about 5 ago. He has forgotten more about domains than most people will ever know!

You've got a real problem.

I hope you get some real help for it.

In the meantime, please move along. Thanks.

How can anybody have a productive conversation when you attack and insult new members as soon as they post, or disagree with your opinions?

You need to step back and take a look at yourself.

I don't know who these guys are, but I would like to personally thank them for not believing in IDNs and allowing me (and other members of this forum, I suspect) to assemble nice portfolios. Deep down inside we are very greatful. I know I am. Really.
