Millions of credit cards numbers are stolen every month, and bots continually scour the internet looking for websites to hack. The domain name industry is not immune to thieves and hackers.

In this interview, David Weslow describes the three steps you can take to recover your domain name before it’s too late.

He also discusses the six steps you need to take to prevent a domain name theft from occurring in the first place.

From Brandable to Exact-Match Geo Domain Making $1.5M Per Year – With John Colascione

From Brandable to Exact-Match Geo Domain Making $1.5M Per Year – With John Colascione

John Colascione registered his first geographic domain name – LongIslandExchange.com – for only registration fee (about $10), and after years of hard work discovered the best way to make money in his specific geographic region.

With the success of that business model, he parlayed his readership and revenue into an ownership stake in LongIsland.com and now serves more than one million readers per month across his Long Island Media network. And in 2016, they’re on track to generate $1.5 million in revenue.

In this interview, we discuss his business model, how he structures advertising packages and his sales force, how he uses social media to his advantage, and advice he has for other geographic publishers.

The Evolution of The Grooming Network and Acquisition of Beard.com – With Luke Webster

The Evolution of The Grooming Network and Acquisition of Beard.com – With Luke Webster

The DomainSherpa audience often asks us to check in with past Sherpas to see how their business has fared since their interview. So that’s what we’re delivering today.

Luke Webster started his shaving business on a single, niche, exact-match domain name: VintageStraightRazor.com. But he executed day in and day out and reinvested profits. Today his venture, now called The Grooming Network, sells razors and blades of all types, soaps, brushes, cologne, and more.

We find out how his revenue has grown, what his vision is for the next few years, and how domain names, a “club” model and content marketing are going to play important roles in future growth.

Oh, and I ask Luke how much he paid for Beard.com and why he’s financing most of his high-value domain names. It’s a great show with a great entrepreneur.
