    No matter how long you've been a domain investor, there are certain things that still interest and surprise you every week. This is a situation that likely has never been seen before. An investor received a $4,000 offer for a domain name from a YouTuber with over eight million subscribers.

    Yet, after accepting the offer, the investor noticed the YouTuber had posted a poll to his 138,000 Twitter followers to choose between two domains: the domainer's name and another. Follow this discussion to see how the story ends.

    Showcase Your .APP Domains

    This week, Google released the .APP domain extension and for once, a new gTLD was received warmly by many investors. According to recent statistics, the extension has amassed over 170,000 registrations just days after its general release.

    Naturally, domain investors have been registering .APP domains. In this discussion, domainers are sharing their .APP purchases. Did you buy any?
