New site makes it easy to ask and answer questions about domain names.
Elliot Silver of ElliotsBlog.com launched a new site for the domain name industry today — DomainQuestions.com. The site makes it easy for domainers to ask questions and get answers from the community, including Elliot himself.
The idea stemmed from a problem Elliot encountered.
“Just about every day, I receive at least a couple of emails asking for some insight and advice about domain names covering topics that include sales, development, investment, and everything in between,” said Silver.
But he said it’s difficult to personally answer each question and often times he’s not the best person to respond. That’s when he decided to try the community approach.
“I decided that I would set up a new website where people could ask these questions, and I can answer them while allowing others to answer the questions as well,” he explained. “Instead of getting only one answer from me, these people will hopefully receive a number of answers from others with different backgrounds.”
As with other Q&A sites, users can ask and answer questions, vote on the best answers, etc.
Elliot recently bought the DomainQuestions.com domain name through BuyDomains broker Sonia Doubet.
DotSauce also offers a Q&A forum. I suspect both sites attract a different type of reader, and Mark Fulton and Elliot Silver have very different backgrounds, so I think both of these sites can be valuable to domainers.
