Domain Investing News Highlights for the week of May 5th, 2019

This week I am in Japan with my Dad, currently in a really special city called Nara about an hour outside of Osaka. While I do my best to unplug while I’m on vacation, as a daily blogger, this continues on as part of my daily routine.

I also find that reading domain investing news is a nice part of my daily routine so sharing the stories I’m reading with all of you is actually a lot of fun, whether I’m on vacation or not.

That being said, I’m going to reduce my highlights to five stories this week since I’m actually about to go down to the Onsen (think Japanese hot tub). So with that, here are five stories that caught my eye over the last week and a half. Enjoy!

    Dear Morgan:
    In Japan, you can offer a domain of my own GINZAFOOD.COM. Suitable for a restaurant name in GINZA, the commercial zone in Tokyo. It is listed on Afternic.com, for $ 2.750
    Going through Escrow.com I’ll discount 15% that you can take a commission or, put an overprice.
    Let me know as soon as possible.
