    Pretty sure, it not domain related but medical marijuana related...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cannabidiol

    Short form for Internationalized domain names
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internationalized_domain_name

    For example , check out this part of the forum, https://www.namepros.com/forums/idn-and-emoji-domain-discussion.113/

    Personally, I understand the term, "left money on the table" to mean, the the seller didn't get too greedy when selling his/her domain!

    Personally it is not a bad thing because a deal was made (usually after a long negotiation), the seller sold a domain, the buy (end user) acquired the name he/she wanted.

    The "table" part comes from the poker world: when you don't play smart, you're leaving your money on the poker table. (a negative use)

    I believe you would call it a glossery of terms but would think the examples so far are just the basics.

    Hello,

    Thanks for this good explanation in above,
    as I would like to ask about the term of: "back order"
    it sound like someone lost his/her domain after expired, and then order it again or something like that?
    anyway, I hop you can explain this, Thanks.

    DBA stands for Doing Business As.

    eg Mr Domains, DBA, Very Important Domains. As in they are not trading under their own name, but doing business under some other name. It's a legal term.

    DBA? never heard it particularly related with domaining...in general DBA either means database administration or Doctor of business adminstration, or sometime means "doing business as" ....

    re-purposed ccTLD - a country-code extension that although allocated and represents its corresponding country, has become globally available for registration, and marketed and used as a generic meaning rather than the country.

    some examples:

    .io - re-purposed for popular for tech companies (input/output). Originally British Indian Ocean Territory.
    .me - re-purposed for me (me me me). Originally Montenegro.
    .co - re-purposed as an alt for .com, or "company". Originally Colombia.
    .tv - re-purposed for television. Originally Tuvalu.
    .ai - re-purposed for artificial intelligence. Originally Anguilla.
    .ws - re-purposed for "website". Originally Western Samoa.

    I don't know Stub. Good question. But I have sold .ai's and .ws's, and have dabbled in .tv's. Out of the list, IMO good names in .ai and .tv are worth a look at in regards to gaining momentum.

    I really, really have always liked .ai, though. Which is weird, because I hate the idea of ai. Unless its in a good book. Wish I owned more than the only one I have left.

    From those .TV, .IO and .ME are the most successful ones. These TLD's are global available, I don't see any changes in the future.

    I'm surprized you don't include .CO in your short list. Was that intentional, or an oversight?

    Great job! I’ve been calling for this ever since l took on domaining about 9 months ago. I teach English and know the language inside-out—but, sadly for me, l’m a tech-illiterate.

    A major problem from the start has been trying to figure out the domaining terms that riddle the “Requrst Domains” Discussion. Half the time, l’m absolutely clueless to what the “Requestor” wants.

    I would happily buy a publication like this—just an idea for you.

    A post above yours asks for the meaning of Aftermarket, and l replied, saying l wish l knew. And it was almost karma that l scrolled down to your post.

    Now l know what push and 4L mean—and those are just for starters! What about Domain Authority?

    Keep on keepin’ on, Good Guy!

    And in many cases a "Sole Proprietor" business, but some corporations play games with this too. Banks require a legitimate Persons name in order to open a bank account under a DBA to receive checks in the Company name or your personal name. Some corporations attempting to obfuscate ownership under a DBA, I have even seen some that are daisy chained, not sure of the legality.
    Corp A dba Corp B dba Corp C.

    Not quite a definition but this is the link for the 242 pages of "premium" domain names that the .MOBI registry reserved in 2007 for auction. As a document, it shows the kind of domain names which are generic (generally) and potentially valuable. The links to the documents are in Microsoft Excel and PDF format.
