Escrow for Domain Names and a lot more.
I recently sold a domain name to a foreign buyer that wasn't familiar with the escrow process. It's really just as simple as depicted in the image below, but with their unfamiliarity, I can see how they could be skeptical, so I walked them through the whole process.
A couple of items not represented in the images are number one, make sure your buyer chooses the right email address for your transaction. Most people have at least a work and personal email address. It's always good to ask before you start your transaction. The second concern is for the seller. Sometimes when a buyer receives their goods they don't always follow up to verify that they have possession. You can rest assured that Escrow.com can verify the domain name transfer without any action by the buyer, it just takes a few day longer.
Escrow.com has been in the business for over 25 years and they began with handling domain name transactions. They truly are the industry leader.
They provide services for just about every other transaction as well payment plans.
June 2019 Reported Domain Sales
For those of you that are not in-tune with the domain industry, here are some recent domain name sales that have been topping this summer's domain charts. Please keep in mind that only a very small fraction of sales ever get reported. Orion.com changed hands, but the price was unreported, rumor has it that it sold above 30m. Prices have been rising for great domain names.

Or The Spiritual Laws of the Universe
I just had to make one more post to pass along. I would like to share this book with everyone. In the book Deepak Chopra expresses with the simplicity of nature our connection and mechanisms for a closer relationship with divinity. It truly is a life altering book that will change more than your perspective. Thank you Deepak!

Busy Developing Domain Names
This will be my last post for awhile. About a year ago I formed BHKO LLC with a focus on vacation rentals and real estate sales. We have several niche websites launching over the next few months each with its own regional area of inclusion. What distinguishes BHKO from the competition is our custom URL's or custom names that allow homeowners to choose a name for their property and they can use that link to pass to potential renters or for sales prospects.
We only cost $148 per year with NO commissions! So for about $12 dollars per month (tax deductible) you can advertise your property. Use us solely or in conjunction with your existing property management company or link to their system. We have a full reservation system available and you can share your property with just a click.

Simply the best value in advertising your property!

Introducing FormX, a revolutionary addition to XMod Pro. I don't usually get to technical in these articles, but for all my DotNetNuke developer friends using XMod Pro, you need to get a copy of FormX from Reflect Media Group. FormX allows you to build XMod templates that permit adding and editing in the list view, or In-line editing, without a page reload. It's amazingly fast and you won't be able to go back to regular forms again, it would be like giving up broad band for dial up.
Get your copy from the DNN Store. And, make sure to checkout the samples under recipes in the documentation. Easy to use and install. Excellent tutorials are available.
I just wanted to shine some light on the underappreciated, taken for granted and all the people and other things we couldn't live without. As Thanksgiving approaches, one of my favorite holidays, I've been busier than usual and just struck by some of the great people I have run into working behind the scenes that don't receive any acclamation. In most cases someone else is taking the credit.
I think we all tend to take it for granted all the folks that make our lifestyles possible. I'd thank them all if I could, but there's not enough space on my blog, just know you are appreciated.
I begin and end my day with an attitude of gratitude. Thanks
Happy 4th of July everyone. (This is a scheduled post) I'm taking a few days off and I hope you are as well.
Remember the real reason we celebrate the 4th of July and work on you're own independence, financial independence. Always a good time to start your own business or improve upon one. Pay your debts off and start building wealth. Here's to wishing you a great year ahead.
Even with a busy schedule I try and keep an eye on movement in the tech industry. Where money is being placed shows the direction of the market and what the results of all these industry gurus research and decisions are being backed by speculation. Follow the money and you're following the end results of all these great minds. In an article on SIIA.net there's a comparative breakdown of the last three years worth of investments in different sectors of technology that leads in with some analysis on Q1 2018. Out of the gate, 2018 is up 124% compared to 2017 and the money is on tech enabled services up 207%. Marketing, analytics, database and information services have unprecedented increases.
With stronger consumer confidence the market outlook for technology related goods and services is very healthy, as a consequence advertising and marketing via tech soars along side. Seems obvious to those involved with technology that this isn't going anywhere but up. Take a read through the numbers, what they mean is a future more interwoven with tech than anyone can imagine.
