    Yes, I am gTLD domainer and I am doing my best to fight GDPR!

    So here is the story: few days ago, I found out that all my personal details from WHOIS database are masked. How nice, my privacy and personal details are protected, but...

    I have portfolio of few hundreds gTLDs. Prior GDPR, most people with interest in my domains contacted me via email (which they got I assume from WHOIS), and second best source for me was LinkedIn.I have my domains also on Undeveloped, Sedo, Afternic and Uniregistry, and I had few leads from those sources as well, but email and Linkedin are far far ahead for me.

    So what I am doing after GDPR? Main thing to realize is that I will be loosing now around 50% of overall enquiries as my email is no more present in WHOIS. This is the reason why:

    1. I made sure that all my domains which might be for sale are now parked at Undeveloped.com, where it is very clear they might be for sale.
    2. Few days ago I have completely redone my webpage brands.international and expanded what was originally only pure domain marketplace, by adding section for new gTLD news. In this section I started to post interesting information about new gTLDs, mainly about transfer and renewal promotions, as this is what is most important for most investors, and can save them lot of money.
    3. I am finalizing book about new gTLDs and will be selling it there at separate section. I plan to sell it at Amazon as well, and it will contain some links to my marketplace.

    Obviously, 2 and 3 will also help me to boost traffic to my marketplace, although I do not have big expectations from that, as most traffic will be from fellow domainers (and therefore mostly wholesale type of offers as we all know)

    Guys and girls, have a look at my website and let me know what do you think, mostly what you do NOT like, and how can I improve it! Each comment, tip or idea how to fight that GDPR bad impact to our sales is very appreciated.

    None of those links are clickable for me, I click Make Offer, doesn't look like it's an actual link:

    https://www.brands.international/live-domains

    --------------
    On this page - https://www.brands.international/contact

    http://lovato.club/ - parked page, looks like she's giving up on that one

    Yeezy.supply actually just forwards to the .com, yeezysupply.com

    Set your Brands.international into Organization field... it is always displayed in WHOIS even with GDPR.
    And that's all.
