Why Donuts is repricing many of its premium domains.
This week I talk with Matt Overman, the SVP of sales at Donuts, the company that offers 242 domains in new extensions such as .money and .expert. Matt explains why the company is reducing the price on over 1 million new top level domains that are marked as premium, including moving most of them to non-premium status. He also responds to some of Michael Berkens’ comments about new TLDs and gives examples of how some people are successfully using the domains.
Also: Slofies, Scratch.org settlement scratched, .Music fight, No more .Chrysler, and good news about a website held for ransom.
This week’s sponsor: NameSilo. Use coupon code DNWPod to save $1 on your next domain.
