1. Frank Schilling - The Multimillionaire Domainer

The two Web multimillionaires had never crossed paths, but when Russell C. Horowitz and Frank Schilling finally met to talk business three years ago, the summit began in style - sipping soft drinks poolside at the Four Seasons Las Vegas and chatting about private jets.

2. Feds shut down California's domain name over hacker intrusion

The US General Services Administration (GSA), a federal agency that oversees government Web sites, took steps earlier this week to shut down California state government’s Internet and email service after a hacker apparently was able to route incoming Internet traffic to Web sites that contained the domain name ca.gov to a porn Website.

3. How To Sell A Nine Dollar Domain For $38,650

There comes a time in every internet marketer’s career when they are faced with a burning desire to do better and bring their business and projects to the next level. Unfortunately for most of them, they’ll never get there. This happens because most people aren’t willing to take on much risk, due to thinking too far into the future, or just putting too much thought into taking a leap of faith.

4. Domain Book Cancelled

An upcoming book about the domain name industry is on hold. Writer David Kesmodel, who currently writes for The Wall Street Journal, has worked hard over the past year or so on the book, but the original publisher involved with the project canceled the book. Kesmodel’s agent is currently shopping the book to other publishers. “I’m very disappointed, but I’m hoping to find another publisher soon,” Kesmodel told Domain Name Wire. “Lots of people spent a lot of time with me to help me write what I believe is a compelling book.”

5. The Ethics Of Domain Name Selling

A few months ago, when my wife was still pregnant, I registered the domain name “Babycation.com.” I had been making jokes with a friend about how my time off from work for paternity leave was going to be one big vacation where I’d get to catch up on lots of book reading and TV. (Not surprisingly, I was wrong on that.) I took to calling my paternity leave my “Babycation” and while we were discussing this, I checked and saw the domain name was available. I bought it for about $10. And forgot all about it.

6. Watch out for Chinese domain name issues

For some businesses, having an internet site (most likely in the Chinese language) that can be found at a “.cn” domain name might be valuable. Others might prefer to have a link on the main dotcom page that goes to a Chinese-language site. Yet, again, as with their trademarks, even these companies should consider filing for key domain names under the “.cn” regime to protect them defensively. The filings will also keep those domains available for future use.
