-Any articles that mention a Directi business posted after October, 2010 include a disclosure about this relationship.

-The editor of Domain Name Wire is also a domain investor. He owns domain names, sells domain names, and uses many of the products and services mentioned on DNW first hand.
-Other authors and guest contributors are also typically involved in some facet of the domain industry.
-The editor and guest authors may own stock in domain name related companies that are written about on DNW. As of January 2010, the author owns stock in several domain name related companies and none of the holdings is greater than $5,000.
