How Many Letters On To The Right of the Dot is Too Many To Be A Hack?

April 20th, 2014 Comments off

A domain name hack has traditionally used ccTLD’s to form words and made it a brandable domain.

Some of the more famous hacks are bit.ly, and del.icio.us

instagram.com started out as instagr.am

But now with the new gTLD’s people are using them to form words with longer extensions to the right of the dot.

So .Land with 4 characters to the right of the dot, has become a popular hack in terms of registrations with domains like statenis.land, virginis.land, fireis.land as well as lake.land just tot name a few.

.Estate has also become the subject of a lot of “hack registrations” locking into “real.estate despite there will be a .realestate.

Some of the .estate domains hack I saw include

ALBANYREAL.ESTATE
ATLANTICCITYREAL.ESTATE
BAHAMASREAL.ESTATE
BERMUDAREAL.ESTATE
BOCAREAL.ESTATE
BRONXREAL.ESTATE
CUBANREAL.ESTATE
DAYTONAREAL.ESTATE
EASTHAMPTONREAL.ESTATE
HOLLYWOODREAL.ESTATE
PALMBEACHREAL.ESTATE
SOUTHHAMPTONREAL.ESTATE
I saw a bunch of hacks registered using the new gTLD .Red which launched this week to form words including:

blur.red
captu.red
clea.red
docto.red
empowe.red
enginee.red
expi.red
explo.red
favo.red
featu.red
flou.red
gea.red
inb.red
inju.red
lawye.red
laye.red
offe.red
onehund.red
orde.red
pai.red
pou.red
powe.red
prefe.red
prepa.red
procu.red
pur.red
refer.red
remembe.red
savou.red
spi.red
sponso.red
sto.red
suga.red
uninspi.red
uninsu.red
wage.red

So what do you think about hacks and the new gTLD’s?

Looks Like A New Domain Publication Coming in July

April 19th, 2014 Comments off

domainworld

It looks like there will be a new domain publication coming on the scene in July.

On Facebook.com today we spotted an ad for DomainWorldMagazine.com

As a magazine type publication rather than a blog its seems the new magazine seems to be taking on DnJournal.com which always has considered itself more of a newspaper/magazine than a blog

Ryan Colby of Outcome Brokerage looks to be the registrant of the domain.

From the Facebook page

With over 175,000,000 iPads sold, we figured it was time to publish the first interactive digital magazine devoted to the domain industry!

About

The interactive digital publication for the domain industry. (Launching July, 2014!)
Description

DomainWorld is a subscription based, interactive digital magazine that covers all aspects of the domain industry. We are a monthly publication featuring insightful interviews and cutting edge strategies for key stakeholders.

It will be interesting to see if Ryan can make the subscription model work. Good luck to him and his team.
Andrew Warner tweeted today how newspapers are wising up to a subscription model. Warner runs Mixergy.com and he is who Domain Sherpa patterned his original interview format after. I believe Michael Cyger attended an Andrew Warner bootcamp.
