Twitter's Other Character Limit

Check out today's domain and web hosting deals!


DomainReport.ca

When choosing a username on Twitter, some ideas are to choose your personal name, your business name, or a name that is descriptive of your business.  Some usernames I think would be good are:


@NewYorkRealEstate

@DomainNameRegistration

@BasketballTickets

These are pretty good usernames and must be taken.  Or are they?


Everyone who knows about Twitter is aware of the 140 character limit on tweets you send out.  What this means is, you can write a message and send it (tweet it) out, but you can only use 140 characters or less to do it.  The box won't accept more characters.  You can add a url link now to tweets, and they don't count against the character limit.  That makes sense, because the link isn't really part of what you're saying, and some links can be pretty long these days (e.g.: tried linking to an online article lately?).

In fact, I remember when Twitter started out the big deal was you only had 140 characters to say what you wanted.  The statement above the tweet box used to be something like: Tell us what you're doing right now.

Well, the usernames I posted above don't exist because Twitter usernames also have a character limit.

Your Twitter username must be no longer than 15 characters.  This can include letters, numbers and the _ symbol.

I've never really heard anyone complain about the character limit on usernames, I imagine people just pick something that falls within the limit.  I also haven't heard of Twitter expanding the character limit on usernames, but I think they should.  It would open up a whole lot of other useful possibilities that many people would take advantage of.

For example, if you're a realtor and you live in a town with a name that is 6 characters or more, you won't be able to use @CityNameRealEstate for your Twitter handle, because 'real estate' takes up a whopping 10 characters by itself.

And if you want to check out how Twitter hashtags (#) work, and see popular Twitter hashtags, check out this Popular Twitter Hashtags site.

Perhaps as Twitter grows more popular this is something they will consider doing to help people find a catchy, nice looking username!

CIRA moves IDN .ca agenda forward

DomainReport.ca


Last year CIRA started talks on the possibility of creating IDN domains with the .ca extension to accommodate the french language, which is one of the two official languages of Canada.  French is spoken as a first language by millions of Canadians, most of whom live in Quebec.


The first round of consultations is complete, and the results are posted on their site (link below).


CIRA has now made changes to their IDN proposal based on the feedback received, and these changes can also be seen on their site.  I read through the changes and I like them at first glance.  Basically they will treat IDN registrations like they used to treat provincial codes.  For example, if you owned Money.ca, no one could register Money.qc.ca or Money.bc.ca and so on without your approval.  The same thing will go with IDN's, for example if you own celebrite.ca, no one can register célébrité.ca, célébrite.ca or celébrité.ca without your permission.  Any letters with possible accents are therefore protected in domains you already own.  I don't know how they will do this, because there are so many possibilities for accent combinations, but I'm sure it's possible.


This also means I don't have to go out and re-register all my french domains with the proper accents in order to protect them, though I will do this for at least some of them.  I'm interested to see if they will get more traffic with the correct IDN version, or better search engine placement.  From my research, many french users do use accents when searching on the net and typing in domains.


Here is the info from CIRA:

Last fall, the Canadian Internet Registration Authority (CIRA) invited you to participate in a consultation about our proposed implementation of French characters (also known as Internationalized Domain Names, or IDNs) in .CA domain names.

That first phase of our consultation has now closed. Based on this feedback from .CA holders, Members and other stakeholders, CIRA has revised its proposal for launching IDNs.

We are now inviting you to read our revised proposed policy and share your thoughts on some of the changes we've made in this final round of consultation at idnconsultation.ca.
  
This next round of consultations ends Feb 24, so if you have any comments there is just under a month left to submit them.

'Thunderous' .ca domain sale at DNS

DomainReport.ca

From time to time I like to check in at DomainNameSales.com to see what domains they are getting inquiries on, the price quotes DNS is sending back, and the list of domains that end up selling.  It is actually getting quite addictive when you get to follow through the whole sales process on so many domains.

I also like to check for action on .ca domains, because DNS does own some .ca's.

One .ca sale that popped up on Jan 20 was thunderroad.ca for under $3,000.  My first thought with this domain was that maybe a Bruce Springsteen fan bought it in honor of his famous song, but the webpage right now for it shows a car care centre with a nice picture of an old black Mustang.

Another .ca domain sold on Jan 24, this one was badcreditloans.ca.  The selling price range was listed as N/A, but good loan financial keywords usually go for a good price.

DNS has sold some other interesting names in the last few days, including:

Heart.me
Trouver.fr
Papa.co
iStorage.com
iDancer.com
Zagged.com
SatphoneShop.com
Facets.com

Does anyone know if DNS only sells Name Administration domains, or do they sell domains for other owners on their parking platform too?

TBR .ca dropped domains Jan 25, 2012

DomainReport.ca

This week's .ca TBR domain drop was a whopper!  The total number of dropped domains was in the neighborhood of 7,000.  Out of these, 238 domains were grabbed.

An interesting sidenote, I noticed that the domain facetime.ca was dropped and picked up this week.  When my kids first got their ipods, one of the things they did a lot with their friends was called 'facetiming'.  It's an app that lets you see the person and talk to them on an ipod screen.  Facetiming is done completely through the internet, so you can save on long distance charges or cellphone minutes, as long as you have free WIFI.  After learning about this, I remember checking for the domain facetime.ca.  It was taken, but what was more interesting was who the owner was.  The domain belonged to the Herjavec Group.  If you watch Dragon's Den on television, you'll know that one of the dragons is Robert Herjavec, who is the CEO and founder of the Herjavec Group, an internet security company.  I wonder if they dropped the domain on purpose, or was it a mistake?  And why did they even own it in the first place?

I've bolded the better names in the list below, thanks to Sibername for providing the results.

Two .CA domain names in Weekly Report

DomainReport.ca

There were two .ca domain sales reported in this week's DNJournal report.  One of them made the top 20 list for all domain sales, and both were in the top 12 for country code domain sales.

The two sales were:

Treo.ca - $10,000 sold at Afternic DLS

ePhone.ca - $6,000 private sale by eMall.ca

Treo.ca was the #18 sale for all domains, and #6 on the country code chart.  ePhone.ca took the #12 spot on the country code chart.

I couldn't find much information on these domains, the pages don't resolve or are parked.  ePhone.ca has domain privacy, and Treo.ca shows as being owned by Ryan Murphy in Vancouver (the domain on the contact email is ticorp.ca which doesn't resolve).

Regardless, these were two nice sales for the .ca domain market.  Hopefully there will be lots more activity and sales in the Canadian market to report on in 2012!

TBR .ca dropped domains Jan 18, 2012

DomainReport.ca

Over 6,000 .ca domains dropped on Wednesday this week, the largest .ca drop in a long time.

Out of those dropped domains, only 107 were picked up in the TBR.  In recent weeks, about 5,000 domains have dropped at TBR, and around 200 were picked up.  I was wondering if this week's low pick up was due to low quality drops, or low participation.  From a few people I've talked to who scanned most of the list, it appears that the low catching was because it was a low quality week.  Still, there were some decent domains available.

I picked one up this week myself, which was edj.ca

In the list below, I've bolded some of the domains I think are decent.  Thanks to Sibername.com for providing the list.

Petzone.com sells for Six Figures at DNS Marketplace

DomainReport.ca

From time to time I check the domain sales posted at DomainNameSales.com, and tonight I noticed that there was a big sale on January 15.

Petzone.com - sold for $100,000 to $150,000

It looks like this domain sold last October for $7,601 so that is a fantastic return for the seller.  Not many investments you could have made in the last three months that would have given that percent gain!

there was another large sale today, Jan 16:

Boatloans.com - sold for $50,000 to $100,000

DNS only gives a selling price range, not the actual price, however it is still valuable information if you are trying to gauge the domain market.  Most of the sales right now are listed as taking place at Sedo or the DNS site.  Domains sold at Sedo would have the actual price reported at Sedo.  Also, if the petzone.com and boatloans.com sales get reported to DNJournal, we may see an exact price for each.

DNS is an interesting site because you literally get to see the whole domain selling filter system, from inquiry, to price quote given, to a final sale or not.  So far I've seen several names get inquiries, quotes and sales every day, so there is always something new to see.  Most domains seeing action are .com's, but you will also see other extensions like .ca, .net, .org, .es, .co.uk, .biz, and .tv from time to time.  A recent change to the site put the domains sold section in the center of the page near the top, which was a good move.  The comments section where many people are trying to sell their own domains was moved down the page, also a good change!

About the two sold domains themselves?  I'm not surprised to see them sell for the prices they did, for the following reasons.

Boatloans.com speaks for itself and will give the new owner an intuitive name for that market and likely some type-in traffic.

Petzone.com is a highly brandable domain name.  Take any good or great keyword and put 'zone', 'web', 'world' or 'space' after it, for example, and chances are it's now a highly brandable term and has value in the .com extension.

I recommend checking in at DNS regularly as one tool to monitor the health of the domain name market.

Flights.ca sells for $120,000 in private sale

DomainReport.ca

A significant .ca domain sale was announced yesterday in Ron Jackson's DNJournal.com sales report.

Flights.ca was sold by Canadian Rick Silver to RedTag.ca, an online travel site for $120,000.

This sale was the #3 dollar value sale for the week for all extensions, and the #1 country code extension sale.

Usually when there is a big .ca sale the news spreads fast through the Canadian domainer community in forums, but I have to say I didn't see or hear anything about this sale before Ron's weekly report.  It was great to see a large .ca domain sale so early in 2012.  Flights.ca is a premium keyword domain for the travel industry, and to those not familiar with .ca, it is highly used and known by Canadians.  Congratulations to Rick Silver and RedTag.ca on this transaction!

Another recent .ca sale I missed took place in December over at DomainNameSales.com.  OpenSkies.ca sold in the $3,000 to $5,000 range (DNS only gives price ranges for their sales).  Before you think this is another travel related sale, it looks like the domain is being used by an MRI company in Saskatchewan.

If you check out the DNS site, you'll see that they post domain sales, but also the domains they receive inquiries on and the price quotes they give.  Every so often there is a .ca domain listed.  It is one more resource that can be used to see how the overall domain market is doing, and what domains people are looking for.

Tech Gadget Sales to Pass $1 Trillion in 2012

DomainReport.ca

More gadgets means more web surfing, which is good for those with an online presence!

Tech gadget sales almost hit the Trillion dollar level in 2011, but in 2012 sales are expected to pass this mark.  Highest sales growth will come (not surprisingly) from smartphones and tablets.  Sales in emerging countries are also growing faster than in North America and Europe, also not a surprise.

If you have a chance to attend the CES show at the Las Vegas Convention Center this year, there will be thousands of new products on display.

Personally, I think the sales of all these new devices are good for the average domainer.  Sure, some of these sales are to people replacing an older product version, but many are also to first time users in emerging and developed countries.  For example, our household got it's first iphone 4S this Christmas, and I've started using my kids iPod Touch more often.  Does it translate into more websurfing in my household?  You bet!

More people on the web simply means a larger market for companies to engage.  And if you want to engage the market, you need to be online.  To be online, you need a domain name.

GfK and CEA said they expect smartphone sales to grow 22 percent this year compared with 59 percent last year while overall tablet sales are expected to double to more than 100 million this year.

Emerging economies are expected to account for 46 percent of global tech sales revenue in 2012, up from 37 percent in 2008, while developed economies will see their share fall to 54 percent from 63 percent over the same period.

Top 100 Domains For Sale - Out Today!

DomainReport.ca


Early this morning I received Francois Carrillo's newsletter containing the top 100 domains for sale out of about 500 that were submitted (see below).


The domains range in price from $200 up to $125,000.  There is a wide price range to fit anyone's budget.  I think this was a good idea and judging by the 500 submissions, and wide blogger promotion,  there was good participation.  Perhaps this should be done on a regular basis, say once per year or every quarter.


Each domain is linked to the sales page if you want more info or to Buy it Now.

Dear Domainer,


As you probably remember today it's a very special domain sale newsletter because:
- The benefice will be reversed to the domain industry bloggers.
- It sould get a tremendous exposure as DNForum.comDomainState.com and AcornDomains.co.uk forums will email it to their members in addition many bloggers promised me to blog about it (thanks!).

I asked domainers to submit their best deal for this special event and ~500 domainers participated.
Despite my persistance only 5% of our members submitted a name (and mainly new domainers), most prefer hold than flip.
I asked Shane Cultra of DomainShane.com to help me and pick the 100 best deals.
He kindly did it and they are listed below. Thanks!
To give a sale chance to everyone the domains that were not picked will be promoted in our next newsletter and could also be found from this RSS feed:
http://www.cax.com/rss/newsletter/

The names are sold in a first come first served, just visit the associated sale page and click the "Buy It" button or respond to this newsletter with a SOLD.
If you like a domain but estimate it's not well priced for you then know that from tomorrow we'll also accept you make you best offer, simply remember a more motivated buyer may shortcut you.
