Domain Shane’s Daily List of Domains at Auction for Thursday March 19th, 2020

The topic came up about registrars offering loans or grace period on customers renewal fees and it proposed an interesting question. Is adding a month or lending money to a domain investor a good business move? Its definitely helpful to the domain investor but is it providing a crutch for a business model that doesn’t balance out or is it just what is needed to help domain investors that are going through a rough period?

I don’t know the answer. Definitely good for business. It’s good for people that need help. Domain investors and all people remember who was good to them during the hard period. It still brings me back to the business model. Will a grace period really be the difference between an investor staying a float and not having to sell domains? I don’t think it will but pretty sure that many will disagree. My opinion is that if on the worst year you can’t sell enough domains to pay renewals than your portfolio is not the right size and quality. There are three levels of domain success

  1. Sell enough to pay renewals
  2. Sell enough to pay renewals and replace domains
  3. Sell enough to pay renewals, replace domains, have a profit on top of that

If you can’t make round one there needs to be a reassessment of the portfolio in my opinion. This doesn’t mean I think that the grace is a bad idea. Times are hard and we all can use as much help as possible. All I am saying is that once you get in a position to keep the names you want I think its a good idea to start cutting some fat and analyze the overall business model. Something that most people needed to do before COVID and the economic downturn. Now they are being forced to. The registrars want you to be able to renew. That’s how they make money. By having people register tons of garbage. Extending payments may be like lending you money to rent a storage shed when you wouldn’t need a storage shed if you didn’t have so much junk. Registrars own the storage shed
