    I think the term for what your describing is "original registrant" which is already commonly used.

    Thanks Branding, but the name(s) DomainOriginator™ and DomainOrigination™ are perfect for what I do. Most of the 1,500 domains I've registered were originated by me. Take for example the domain, VenusHemp.com that dyn888 just registered...he was the "original registrant" for that domain, but it's because he originated that domain, that makes him a Domain Originator as well. He actually originated the domain before he registered it. I originated a domain about an hour ago, CashforyourHash.com that is now part of my Marijuana/Cannabis portfolio. Some of us are multi talented in that we're both Domain Originators and Original Registrants:xf.wink:

    So what is the difference between an original registrant and your definition of domain originator? Please keep your answer simple like two sentences or so, more than that would confuse me:)

    I'm already confused!!

    Registrant: a person who registers something.
    Originator: create or initiate (something).

    So unless @Bulloney you are talking from some kind of branding perspective you are making many of us cross eyed with your convoluted posts :dead:

    You register names and then try and originate them into a brand that can (hopefully) initiate some kind of return?? Is this right??

    This is just for humour :xf.grin:, so please no one take exception to it, but I did think in light of the discussion I should point out that

    OriginatedConfusion is available to hand reg in .com (and I suspect most every extension although was too lazy to check :xf.wink:).

    I think that what we call ourselves does matter, and it might be a way to build our personal brand to use a term that accurately describes us and differentiates us from others.

    Most regular dictionaries don't even accept that domainer is a word, so maybe we need a better term (or lobby them). The urban dictionary does define domainer this way that is nice (I added bolding);

    A person who makes a living in the cyberterritory, making his fortune investing in the field of domain names, buying and selling the Internet's most valuable virtual "real estate".

    I see that they credit their definition to Domainer X - one of the X's on here like @.X. maybe?

    Bob

    ps It should say his/her if someone has way to edit UrbanDictionary.

    What about NameprosAficionado.com ?

    Can I get full 100% credit for the term?
    From here on if any one says it they need to say....

    What about domain birther, domain creator? The name you have, is more domain adopter. Somebody dropped it on some doorstep, you snapped it up. Domain birther is available.

    Bulloney can have the term "Domain Originator".

    Domain Originator is a good term to describe someone who has regged 1500+ domains with no verifiable sales. You certainly can't be called an investor as the money is only going one direction.

    Since I am someone who actually has made a sale, many of them, I use the term domain investor. It is far more explanatory.

    At the end of the day the person that owns the .com owns the associated generic term.

    Do you really want to lay claim, or even be associated, with that name? It is already been consistantly proven to be nothing but a bunch of braggadocios malarkey, and with absolutely no concrete proof of any results, just a bunch of consistent chest pounding denigrating 'I'm better and smarter than everyone else' retorts.

    Really?! I thought you were smarter than to take it seriously.(no direspect)
    Again,
    At the end of the day the person that owns the .com owns the associated generic term.

    Bob...thanks. I'm just loving all the attention I'm getting of late because of some of the names I've originated:xf.wink:, and subsequently registered. What's pretty cool is both DomainOriginator™ and DomainOrigination™ appraise for over $1,300 each at Go Daddy. Actually I just responded about Go Daddy's appraisals to Andrew Allemanns Blog titled, "How to Use Go Daddy's Appraisals to your advantage" You might want to check it out.

    On another note, and all my critics will love this:xf.smile:, in addition to being able to tell customers and friends I'm a "Domain Originator", I can also tell them I'm a Domain Show Host:xf.grin: How so? I just originated the domain; GameswithNames™. As you can see Bob, the domain goons really do bring out the best me, and the best part is, I don't give a ratz azz:xf.rolleyes: Thanks again Bob, and you'll have to excuse me while I check with Hasbro to see if they want me to host Games With Names or they just want to host it themselves. Finally, Canada Rocks!

    Do you have a show, or you mean just the domain name? re Domain Show Host:xf.grin: and GameswithNames™? Or we mean a board/electronic game?
    I'm a little confused, which is not uncommon with me :wideyed:. Take care and have a good week. Bob

    Bob...I figured if I just originated GameswithNames(.)com:xf.wink: it might just need a host? And being that I'm officially a Domain Originator, who better to host "Games with Names" than MOI!

    My last comment on this thread is about the self...........or your's :xf.wink:

    Self Promotion - the action of promoting or publicising oneself or one's activities, especially in a forceful way.

    Self Delusion - the action of deluding oneself; failure to recognise reality.

    Self Denial - the denial of one's own interests and needs

    Self Fulfilling - bound to be proved correct or to come true as a result of behaviour caused by its being expressed.

    Self Sacrifice - the giving up of one's own interests or wishes in order to help others or advance a cause

    I'm originating self ego for myself.......

    That is a good name IMO, definitely worth taking a chance on.

    I think I may run a word Phrase spin tonight after I get home from work, see what I come up with.

    MapleDots or MetBob...I do have a question that maybe you can help me with, and it's because I'm still learning...I just registered the name GamesWithNames(.)com about 3 hours ago. When I checked to see if it was previously owned here is what I found; http://www.hosterstats.com/historicaldns.php?domain=gameswithnames.com

    It appears this name was bought and sold or changed hands five times since 2002. I think I know what to read into it, but what would you read into it? It's interesting that MakeSomethingHappen(.)com that I registered September 1, 2001 is valued at GD for almost $3,000, but GamesWithNames(.)com is valued at GD for $798. Why do you think the big disparity because I think GamesWithNames(.)com has a lot more potential for branding and or a business model than MakeSomethingHappen(.)com. I'd just appreciate your input. Thanks
