Back in September 2021, the price of .COM domain names were increased, across the board.
This was due to a decision made by ICANN, the not-for-profit organization that is responsible for overseeing a lot of the internet structure.
Now two of my favorite domain registrars are running sales on .COM domain names at the moment where .COMs are once again available for under 10 bucks.
.COM Domains From Dynadot
First up is Dynadot who are offering .COMs for $8.69.
But f you thought their .COM price was already low, they’ve gone even lower with a limited time flash sale.
Register your .COM domain names for only $7.88!
The offer applies …
If you’re looking for a side hustle, then domain flipping might be up your alley.
What Is Domain Flipping?
This is the digital equivalent of buying real estate in the offline world and flipping (selling) the property for a higher price.
In this case you’re flipping what’s known as virtual real estate.
It might be a simple transfer of ownership between two parties…
…or you might spruce the domain up with a new or improved website so it has more perceived value before you sell it on.
Is Much Up-Front Investment Needed?
While you need high cash flow for doing real estate deals, you only need as little as $10 to get …
Remember how I mentioned in an earlier post that GoDaddy wasn’t the best option if you’re looking to buy a domain name and that GoDaddy Support wasn’t the best?
I mentioned in that post that I was in the process of transferring one GoDaddy domain after another to Dynadot, my preferred domain registrar.
I also mentioned that despite having cancelled my GoDaddy Domain Discount Club (DDC) subscription, I was still being charged the discount price of €8.43 for domain renewals instead of the regular, and extremely expensive, fee of €18.99 for a .com.
Well, it looks like there was a grace period where GoDaddy hoped I’d renew my DDC subscription. I …
GoDaddy used to be my domain registrar of choice. But that was back in the days when they were cheap and offered discount coupons.
Why GoDaddy Sucks
Their coupons used to work worldwide. Then they started geo-locking coupons to territories so, for example, the $0.99 new domain coupon wouldn’t work in Europe. And so on.
Prices are also forced into your local currency with no option of paying in the currency of your choice, unless you use a VPN.
Then the domain fees and, particularly, the domain renewal fees started rising over the years.
Then they introduced the Discount Domain Club. Pay $120 per year and your domain renewal fees are reduced.…
I’ve been thinking about all the affiliate and internet marketing courses I’ve bought and learned from over the years. And how many just languish on my digital shelves now and how many I actually used and still use.
Many had short lifetimes because they exploited a loophole or trick to achieve their aim and, once that was plugged, whatever the course taught didn’t work any more.
Then there’s the simple reality that the internet is an incredibly dynamic entity.
Google changes the rules on a what – daily, weekly, monthly basis? We get to hear about the big changes like Panda and Penguin algorithm updates but the knock-on effect of these changes …
A peek inside NicheReaper 2
I’ve been a member of NicheReaper since it opened its doors a couple of years back.
Keyword tools come and go; some like Market Samurai run on your PC, other like Keyword Canine run online through your web-browser. PC-based software tends to run slowly while online tools return results quickly. Desktop tools tend to require a single payment while online tools usually require a subscription.
NicheReaper was an online tool that required a subscription. As is NicheReaper 2.
If you do a lot of keyword research, you’ll know that it’s a time consuming business. And this is where the desktop tools fall down. While they will …
Today I launched a new service for getting WordPress blogs built. It’s called Top Design Blogs. Not everyone is familiar with WordPress or is able to create a site focused on promoting a product; not everyone has the time to write content. Some people just want a business in a box that they can run with.
That’s what this service offers.
There Are 3 Types of Blog Available
- A Base Blog– this is a blog that’s built using a Premium theme and uses Premium plugins to make the blog much more secure from ne’er-do-wells. Other installed plugins improve SEO and site management. All you need to do is add the
I know many of you who read this blog build and try to rank your websites in order to generate income online, whether that’s as a supplemental income or a full-time income.
Ranking sites has certainly become more difficult in the last couple of years with the various changes in how Google assesses the value of sites. So here’s a list of resources that may make your job easier as well as providing other means of earning income from your sites.
The most popular site building platform online is WordPress. Most people who build websites for profit use it. It’s also free but does require some time to learn if …
UPDATE: Flipping Paradise and Flipping Maverick Are No Longer Available
My current recommended domain flipping courses are DomainFlipping and Flipp Me.
Most of my income is derived from revenue from my websites. That’s a mix of Adsense and other passive income streams like Infolinks, Chitika, Viglink, Skimlinks and some others, along with sales of products through the sites. I also sell my own software products for additional income.
Something I’ve come across several times over the years is the idea of selling on websites ot other people (domain/website flipping). Websites are simply virtual real estate and, like their physical counterparts, have value and that means someone else might …
I recently got an email from Gary Ambrose (an internet marketer who’s one of the better guys) promoting a product that turned out to be from another marketer called Jamie Lewis. The product was called Magnum Commissions.
The Sales Process Begins
The affiliate link took me to a video that introduced me to Magnum Commissions and how it was so easy to get commissions by promoting products on the internet. I decided to bite to see where this would take me. Two alarm bells rang though – the first was that the product was just $47, too low for the hard sell in the video so I fully expected an upsell …
