A good friend of mine asked me for a list of favorite domain name news sources. I’ve decided that this is post-worthy! There are several places to get news about the domain name industry that I like to frequent. They have varying perspectives, but I would divide them this way:
Registries / Registrars Perspective – People who manage TLD registries and sell them to the public.
http://thedomains.com (also for domain investors perspective)
http://circleid.com (very professional)
https://twitter.com/bretfausett (great current news on twitter)
Domain Name Resellers Perspective– People who sell domain names (& hosting/web design/other) but are not registrars
Domain Investors Perspective – People who buy 100s or 1000s of domains to trade and invest in aftermarket.
http://ricksblog.com – very straightforward and one of the smartest about domain names in the business; however, it is not updated any longer
http://domaining.com – This is actually a feed aggregating many of these other resources.
http://domainsherpa.com – great videos about domain names and more
Brand Name Perspective – People who buy 100s or 1000s of domains globally to protect their brands
https://www.markmonitor.com/subscription/index.php ( interesting news)
Online Businesses Perspective – People who buy 1 – 10 domains for business or personal use. Internet news in general.
