domaining ebook

I’ve decided to write an e-book on domaining. True, I started in 2005 which makes me a latecomer to the domain name industry. Also true that I have not made millions of dollars (yet), though I do own upwards of 2,000 domain names that earn good parking income and I have made many good sales.

Nevertheless, I have learned much in two years, and beyond that I have considerable experience as a researcher and writer.

But what really prompted this decision is an incident that occurred recently. A member at one of the domain name forums bought a new e-book on domaining, and noticed that substantial portions were plagiarized from this blog, I investigated and sure enough, there was a sizeable amount of material in the e-book that was taken word for word from this blog. Even my text formatting style was copied, with a copyright label slapped on it!

Naturally I contacted the author. He claims that he hired a contractor to write the book and he did not know that the contractor had plagiarized portions of the book. Perhaps he is telling the truth. To his credit, he pulled the book from the market immediately.

If my writing is good enough to be copied into someone else’s e-book, then I may as well write one of my own. In addition to sharing the fruits of my own experience, I will make heavy use of the advice of the experts, crediting them fully for their ideas. I will attempt to put together something very comprehensive, that covers all the fundamentals in detail.

You can expect to see the release of this e-book before summer 2008.

    I don’t suppose you would say the name of that ebook
    or you probably would have said it.

    Would you say if it wasn’t a particular ebbok?

    A new domain ebook that I know about has the word Manifesto in the title.

    It wasn’t that ebook, right?



    I did not say the name of the e-book, and I prefer not to say since the issue has been resolved. It was not the Domain Manifesto.

    I look forward to reading your domain ebook. What I’ve learnt is all self taught, I’ve never sold a domain yet though.

    I have been reading domainerspro for quite some time.. you were inf act one of the reasons I stopped myself from making a domaining blog.. 🙂

    so count me in, in the list of looking forwarders..


    Stopped you from making a domaining blog? Why? Surely my blog is not so good as to exclude competition. There’s plenty of room in this space for more people’s opinions and experiences.

    I don’t own 2000 plus domains 🙂
    and at 20 (domains not age) i figured i will learn something from you guys first before blogging about how to net killer domains.. before becoming a blogging competition.. 😉

    Have you written it? 🙂

    Hello Sumedh. Unfortunately no, I have not. Other business projects have demanded my attention. And – this may sound strange – I have been working on a book of children’s stories. I started making up some animal stories from my daughter, and people told me they were very good, so I decided to write them in a book.
