PALM BEACH, FL – Over the years, I’ve heard a lot of great domain stories that date back to when domain names were registered only through Network Solutions, and when domains, particularly .com domains, where a lot more expensive than they are today. What I have heard virtually no stories at all about, are those which date back to when domain names were completely free; yep, nothing, first come first serve, no fees.
A bundle of interesting stories await domainers in this video with domain name industry visionary Michael Castello from CCIN.com, who is willing to share a ton of great information on not only how and when he got started in domains (around the time leading up to Telecommunications Act of 1996) but some of his early investor deals (30 domains for $30,000) and many of his negotiations on some of his top sales such as Room.com, Rate.com and Whisky.com, which are very interesting indeed.
I originally found the video on a website I never visited before called Domainer.com.au run by Robert Kaay and Ed Keay-Smith, whom previously to Michael, interviewed Ron Jackson from Domain Journal, so this video/podcast site is certainly one to keep and eye (and ear) on.
Enjoy these very interesting stories above including about 52 informative minutes with one of the most experienced domain enthusiasts in the business.
