    3. 0 Comments allows you to handle the sales inquiries you want and send the others to brokers.

    I use (DNS) to park most of my domain names because I like using their sales platform.

    DNS’ platform allows you to handle purchase inquiries on your own for no fee or assign a broker to handle your inquiries for a commission.

    For a long time I had DNS handle all my inquiries, but then I decided to broker domain sales myself. Yet sometimes I’d like a helping hand.

    It turns out that is not an all-or-nothing platform. Click to continue reading…

    A geo and an open .brand top level domain name launch this week.

    It’s a slow week again for new top level domain names, and that will be the case going forward for awhile.

    On Tuesday, the geo domain .bayern (Bavaria) launches.

    On Wednesday, Donuts releases .deals in general availability. .City will enter the Early Access Phase.

    Next week Donuts won’t send any domains to EAP, as it is running low on domain names to release.

    There’s an interesting launch on Thursday. OVH, One of Europe’s largest webhosts, launches .ovh. Although it’s a brand, they’re opening it up to everyone.

    According to the company, it announced .ovh as an April Fools’ joke back in 2009 and received 22,000 requests to register them. That convinced the company to apply for .ovh when ICANN opened up the new TLD program.
