Topic by @Cemal $3k registration fee?
If you like .tech domains you might be familiar with premium keywords that carry premium registration/acquisition and renewal pricing. Our friend who started this thread wonders "who decides" on the extreme pricing of these keywords. Chime in your thoughts.

Afternic forced me to add DNS records to my domains for deleting them from Godaddy,, and Afternic.
A domain investor who deleted his entire portfolio from Afternic is now facing the challenge of verifying his domains again, as unscrupulous "Chinese users" are adding these domains back. What should be done, so that his domains aren't in danger of a fast sale by others?

Why are domain names tough to sell?

Thanks for another great summary of weekly topics, @Acroplex !

I am perhaps an exception, but don't find TXT verification problematic. I used it with Sedo, Afternic, Dan, SH, and Dynadot external names. It really helps if you have a registrar where you can have all of your TXT DNS records automatically set for newly acquired domains though.

Thank you for your attention @Acroplex. I'm happy to be part of this
