  1. In this week’s Top Topics, domain investors are asked to share a one or two-word .COM in the High Roller Club, and someone receives a $100 offer for a domain name with an interesting message attached.

    Elsewhere, Dofo releases its September domain industry report, and why did Jewelry.com rebrand to Welry.com?


    The High Roller Club

    If you have a one- or two-word .COM domain name that you want to showcase, now is your chance. In this popular discussion, investors are invited to reveal a domain name that matches that criterion.

    In addition to this, you need to signify whether you value the domain name above or below $100,000. Which domain name can you add to the High Roller Club?

    An Offer and an Interesting Message

    After acquiring a brandable domain name at DropCatch around a month ago, this investor put the name up for sale for a four-figure fee on the aftermarket. Then this week, the investor received a $100 offer.

    Nothing out of the ordinary so far. However, that low offer was accompanied by a message from someone alleging to be the original owner of the domain name asking for the investor to essentially hand it back to them. What would you do in this situation? Have you ever encountered anything similar yourself?

    September’s Domain Industry Report

    Dofo, the domain name research company, pulls together a substantial amount of data every month to compile a periodical report of the domain industry. This usually includes data on domain registrations, top keywords, and domain sales statistics.

    This week, Dofo has released the domain industry report for September. The report reveals, among other things, that 4.9 million domain names were registered in September, with 68% of those names being .COM.

    Automation in Domaining

    For many investors, domaining can be an arduous task of searching and browsing through thousands of domain names per day in search of those hidden gems that match your buying criteria.

    Here, an investor has asked whether automating certain tasks is something that you do as a domainer, or whether it’s something you’d consider. The investor has also identified several tasks and areas that could benefit from automation. What do you think of automation in domaining?

    Jewelry.com Rebrands to Welry.com

    If you were a jewelry brand selling jewelry online, which domain name would you want to launch on? Jewelry.com is likely to be your answer. This company originally operated on Jewelry.com, but they’ve just made a significant change.

    In an email to its customers, Jewelry.com announced that it would be rebranding to Welry.com, dropping the “Je” from its name. It seems the company is still selling jewelry. What could be behind this rebranding? Did the company receive an offer for the Jewelry.com domain that it couldn’t refuse?

    Thanks for another nice and interesting articles.

    The rebranding of Jewelry.com to Welry.com seems one of the most ridiculous rebranding I've ever seen.

    That's what I thought too. But maybe they were bought out by a bigger player in the industry who didn't want to run it under the same name (competitive strategy)? because jewelry.com still redirects to welry.com which won't be the case if it got sold.

    Cheers

    You've a point. But even in such case, I would go with a decent domain and not this crap one (Welry.com).

    That's right. But with domain hacks, there is a lot of typo traffic going elsewhere as well as confusion to recall and remember.
