As an fyi, i just posted/commented on Andrew Allemann's Domain Name Wire;

"Andrew,since receiving this at 12:05 est today I've been on a "Premium" binge buying spree for domains like TourGuide.link and SmartSaver.link. At last count I registered about 120 of these domains, and plan on buying a hundred more. Once I take a breather, and because I know there are so many great names left, I plan on reaching out to Yoni, Manuel and Art V.to see if they're interested in investing in me and my outbound marketing strategy. Thanks Andrew"

Note....there are thousands of great .link names that remain unregistered and you can buy them for $4.89 at Namecheap. Also note, you can't buy them at GD, but the risk vs. reward potential was too great an opportunity not to take advantage of it. Any questions or observations fire away.

If you feel you or a loved one are suffering, this includes people buying up domains in a binge based on lotto and slot machine like dreams, ask them to get help.
Thanks for the link/warning...as a professional gambler, entrepreneur and risk taker I've made a lot of money over the last 50 years. It sounds to me that you're unable to break out of your "comfort zone", but that's not for me :xf.wink: Hint, there are still quite a few Premium type .link domains to register, and if you need a little help I'm happy to accommodate. Good Luck!

Rich, you're a professional gambler? That's awesome; I didn't know that. What are your games of choice?

Can't believe he is still at it. They guy cannot learn from his own mistakes. It is like his learning curve resets to square one every few months.
Elkhan....glad you showed up. I was looking to buy Recons.link to give to you but I passed. However i do see that the four letter ELIX is available to purchase in another extension as is QualityDesign. I got both of these ideas from your sites and I want to thank you. btw, I see where you're trying to sell the domain Recons.com for 50K at GD so I might just buy the .link version for the hell of it. Maybe you could explain to the nice folks here on NP the real "technical difference" right of the dot between Recons.com and Recons.link. Take a shot at it so that I can use your explanation for future reference. Thanks in advance (y)

Joe....i really hope you're not trying to take me off topic, but my game of choice was and still is Black Jack! On another note, you were interested about TM's and how I decide whether or not to TM a domain that i register. Forget the extension, but I just registered the name HeadsUp™ for a whopping $5. Having learned a little about the TM process, would you TM the name for $350 if you were me? Let me know what you think?

As a professional gambler, what do you think of a new card game called HeadsUp:xf.cool:

Ah, okay cool. So "professional" was meant to be tongue-in-cheek. Blackjack is a great game. Craps might be even better!

Based on your own criteria, I would say it only makes sense to trademark HeadsUp if you're planning to operate a business under that name. Otherwise it's a waste of money!

Heads Up is actually already the name of a popular game, though! You'd have to use it for something else. It's a shame, though, because it would be a great name for a poker variant game.

HeadsUp could be the brand for a consulting agency that helps people get their heads off their butts and start thinking realistically :)

Regardless Joe.....HeadsUp™ is a great name for almost any business, a clothing/fashion line ala SaltLife™, Nike™, Gucci, or even a tech business like Apple™ BestBuy™ etc.

Joe...i know you're trying to extract the very best from me, and I'm loving it (y) Maybe you or anyone else reading this can help with an email I just got from Namecheap. Because it contains "links" I can't post a copy but here's the gist;

Dear Richard,

It has come to our attention that your domains are reported as involved in unsolicited email activity.

The following domains of yours are marked by international trusted anti-spam organizations:

The Spamhaus Project Ltd. DBL:
winery[.]link
roast[.]link
localnews[.]link
domainsearch[.]link


Joe etal...i've registered literally thousands of domains over the last few years, but this is the first email like this I've ever received. I'll be contacting NameCheap about this, but I thought I'd throw this out to some of the NP members who may have had some experience dealing with something like this?

Thanks in advance Joe.

Brad...."DataCubeCom:ROFL:" or "DataCubeLink(y)" Thanks for wishing me "luck" with "link:xf.cool:" On a more serious note, i was able to register about 50 new one word .link domains last night involving fields of study like Psychology.link. btw, i don't own Psychology.link, but you might say I've cornered the market for all the rest.

Thanks for the suggestion Elkhan....you may want to consider changing "Americas Exquisite Magazine" from ELIX to HeadsUp™ What do you say:xf.wink:

It sounds like the previous owner of those domain names was using them to spam people. That could have some negative repercussions for the names, as I suspect they've been red-flagged and wouldn't be very desirable for anyone hoping to use them for business purposes.

I believe the .link extension is generally one of the more popular ones used by email spammers. I could be wrong about that... People have posted a Top Ten list of spammy extensions on NamePros in the past.

Thanks for your explanation Joe....this most certainly could be a negative, but I'm sure the new owners of .link;

ICANN records show that Nova Registry Ltd is the new owner of this domain.

You need to follow the thread to find the domain investor behind this deal. The company was registered in Malta in December. Manuel Debono is the director, and Vandelay Investments Ltd owns all 120,000 of the issues Type A shares. Vandelay was registered in Malta in 2020, lists John Huber as director and…domain investor Yoni Belousov as the owner of its shares. Yoni is a successful and well-respected domain investor.


are going to want to know about me. I know if I'd purchased a company with a shady past like this, and someone of my experience were to show up at my door, I'd thank God for the intervention.

This is most likely why I've been able to register hundreds of otherwise Premium domains like this so easily.

If either John Huber or Yoni Belsousov, or someone else close the new .link are reading this, you may want to reach out to me for a lot of different reasons.

Thanks again Joe

Can you report some of the .online sales you’ve got !!?

.
Sorry, this thread was created to chat about .link. That said however, i have sold enough "good quality" .online domains to keep my portfolio afloat.

Moving on to my recent discovery of the sale of the .link gTLD, you might say I was blessed to be at the right place at the right time. If I were to post here some of the Premium .link domains I've been able to register over the last 72 hours you'd probably say NO WAY!

The key now is to find an investor/partner to help me blow this thing up. And what I mean by that is to educate the world about this industry.

You know whats funny Joe....Namecheap sold me these domains knowing damn well they were blacklisted. It's sort of like a used car hustler rolling back the odometer:xf.rolleyes: for which many of them go to jail. I've already got the goods on Go Daddy, and Namecheap isn't far behind. It's a shame this is such a criminal industry that's operating as Verisign says, "In Plain Sight".

We know this is a .link thread, but since you are also a prolific investor in .onlines, do tell us a few names that you sold and for what sum.
Why are you avoiding the question
