I actually recently purchased and read Domain Graduate.

While there were a few gems in there, overall I found it to be poorly organized and often outdated (eg emphasis on parking revenue).

I would not recommend for someone wanted to get up to speed today.

Where did I make mistake by registering 0b1000.com? 0b1000 = 8 in Binary, that is same for every computer on earth across all languages.

Where my logic went wrong?

Great post Bill! I could have saved a lot of money if this information was available when I started:)

@ Jackie - So glad to hear you read Domain Graduate. While it's true that some of the information needs updating (Sean tells me he is working on a revised version) the basic principles taught in the book are timeless and that is why I still consider it a must-read. Please let me know if you've since found a better eBook on this topic because I have yet to.

@ Supratik - I like your sense of humour. That is a joke, right?

@ Donna - Thanks. Me too!


Bill-this is a great post you wrote. Now that i've made every rookie mistake there is I feel im finally starting to "get it" a bit at least-just as I did years ago when I first started to develop real estate. After registering a lot of crap (pardon me) I started to buy names like PalmSpringsAuto.com and JacksonHoleListings.com ChinaBrewers.com (something that makes sense) It seems that i'm gravitating towards "Geo" names just as I ended up a land developer in real estate vs homes-commercial etc -my point is I think-just as in real estate-you have to find your way with what suits your personality. Thanks again for a great post. John
