5 Signs That You’re Addicted To Domain Names

I’ll be one of the first to admit, I am a domain name addict, I love them and I’ve loved them for quite a while now. If you’re reading my blog there’s a good chance you also love domain names but if you’re not entirely sure that you’re an addict just take a look at these questions below.

If you answer “Yes” to all five of these questions I’m happy to say that you are a domain addict:

  1. You have been bidding on expired domains after midnight at least once this week
  2. You have domains at more than three registrars
  3. Domaining.com is the first thing you read every morning (it has been for me for a LONG time now!)
  4. You go to multiple domain conferences each year
  5. Frank Schilling is your hero

Feel free to add some of your own to the list, there are definitely more than five ways to know that you’re addicted to domains!

    LOL 1) tick 2) tick 3) tick 4) I haven’t attended any domain conferences yet, mainly due to geographic locations, being based in the UK, the majority are in the US as far as I can find, but I intend to change this in the very near future! 5) He’s one of my hero’s. πŸ˜‰

    You write down domains you want to potentially acquire or research for acquisition on the notes section of your smartphone.

    2. When you make a grocery list, you immediately almost unconsciously add a .com at the end of the item (happened to me last week).

    3. You try to explain to everyone you meet what domain investing is.

    4. Your gf/significant other screams at you to turn the laptop off and pay her some attention.

    5. You underline newspaper articles or passages of books because you think a phrase or a term would make a neat domain. (It mostl never is just my experience).

    Im kidding on some of these but Ill admit Im a hopeless addict. Always imagined myself a domain investor and not a very good one I should add.

    The first step is getting though denial. But then remember the statistics regarding addictions. Almost everybody has a relapse. its just part of the healing. Go through some auctions and don’t feel guilty

    Sign #25: You already have an account with MindsAndMachines.com and are quietly looking forward to your next little ‘session’ there.

    Sorry but I’m different addict into one we can look .

    I can consider addicted to domain names, but first rather be more addicted to the keywords being after domain names .

    I have three more domains registrars my bad luck , I think starting now only have two and later of these two, one of them to buy the company .

    Read more DnJournal that Domaining as one another saying the same while.

    I can not be in multiple conferences domain every year , not live in USA and travel long journey to their country or others to have it banned by my doctor, especially so since I already have liked to be in all of them if you do not have this cardio vascular problem in my legs.

    Morgan Freeman is my hero! or not to me is Morgan Linton , I mean is that he has taught me everything I was taught and still be a good investment domains .

    Well I hope you have a weekend of the best

    #26. When you see a street sign you think “that would make a good domain”

    #27. You hear things and think “I have to check if that is available”

    You lost me with #5. Schilling is a anything but a hero after he invested heavily in .XXX and now is foolishly trying to promote his worthless .tattoo, .sexy and .link crap.

    All 4 points match with me except the 4th one. Unfortunately haven’t attended one due the same reason HowieCrosby mentioned. Hope to attend one soon…

  • Picas December 6, 2013, 10:09 pm

    When your wife thinks your nuts and sends you to the doctor. He says you have Domainitis and schedules a Domainectomy.
