TradeZero.com Acquired for $540,000 in 2021

Sometimes, significant domain name sales and acquisitions are revealed buried deep in SEC filings. These deals only come to light thanks to research from the likes of George Kirikos.

This past week, Kirikos discovered that TradeZero.com was acquired by TradeZero, a commission-free trading platform, in 2021 for $540,000.

How Do You Reach Domain Owners Now?

In May 2018, GDPR came into effect, forcing a change in the way that Whois data is displayed online. Previously, ownership details for domain names without privacy protection were listed online for anyone to view. After GDPR, many registrars obscured all Whois data, meaning that ownership information became harder to access.

Four years after GDPR was first enforced, how do you reach domain name owners? Some registrars, such as GoDaddy, offer domain contact forms, but are these effective? Which tools do you rely on for contacting domain owners?

Are All Big US City Domains Valuable?

Once upon a time, geographical domain names were highly sought after as exact-match domains helped companies rank for local search terms. In recent years, though, the lure of these names has faded.

An investor is acquiring a large US city domain name for a mid-five-figure fee and is wondering whether all popular city domain names are valuable. Do you think exact-match geographical domains are valuable?

Which Timezone is Best for Domaining?

Domain investing is a truly international industry. We have participants from countries all over the world, with domain conferences and meetups happening globally, too. Geographical location affects domain investing far less than many industries, but there are still positives and negatives of being situated in certain countries.

With that in mind, which timezone is best for domain investing? Does operating as a domain investor in a specific timezone give an advantage over others?
