Google On Hyphens In Domain Names
Registering hyphenated domains can be a cheaper option that also separates the keywords visually. A Google engineer claims that this is a bad choice when the topic or services provided by the business using the domain grows outside that scope.

Has any tried and your own name server? Does that result in 15% commission or 25%?
GoDaddy decided at some point to penalize those that list domains on its marketplaces, Dan & Afternic, without using specific DNS that essentially parks these domains at GoDaddy-controlled pages. The commission is a high 25% but can one mix the DNS in the domain's settings and get away with it?
