Yun blatently stold all those names working with a Network Solutions insider. They jammed the system so it keep stalling and not processing the card. You’d get a printed slip with your name as registrant, but the next day it would be his. He also went into (hacked) the whois and changed email characters slighty so you’d never get the notice needed to confirm. Prior to that I worked with CSR at the isp, they had a manual process but didn’t register most of them claiming they were gone. No regulation- this is a badits industry. Couldn’t get lawyers to take me seriously even though I had articles about others with same story. I also have a video tape taken from my screen showing my attempt to pay and it just stalling. There was another guy aaron mathews mndmh you see on sites who in searches also stole them- I think they were related. Ultrasearch was a spyware machine. It generated false clicks and was completely irrelevant. This guy with no address should be picked up and hung dry. This private registration offshore wreaks too. There are papers on the net showing Yun’s deal
I think everyone is making too much of a big deal on the “misspelling” domains. Bottom line is people much smarter than myself (investment banks, hedge funds, etc.) are investing big bucks in these type of companies (namemedia.com, oversee.net, demand media) and Marchex is a leader in the industry throwing off over $30 million in cash per year. All these companies have some questionable names in their portfolios, whether misspellings, porn, etc.
Thank you for your domain blog posts. I am curious as to when you anticipate your book on the domain business to be published.
As you know, the timing is opportune since the domain industry is getting more & more exposure through the media and via blogs like yours and some big time domain investors-Frank Schilling & Rick Schwartz, etc.
It’s amazing that no one has written a book on domains(at least not to my knowledge). Think of all the books written on real estate and yet no one has written one on “virtual real estate”. The new domain magazine- Domainer’s Magazine is the first domain publication in print ever published.
There are now companies offering domain financing and domain leasing. The domain business is so much in its infancy stage that most people have no clue how the business operates.
I look forward to buying your book when it hits the shelves at Barnes & Noble… better yet we can all find it through their website: Books.com!
All the best,
Love reading the Domain articles.
As a domain player myself and the 2nd largest wine domain owner in the world, I find it very refreshing.
Since you the one that wrote this book…do you make a killing?
