I sell TLDs or Top Level Domains.
Domains are nothing but your address that ends in either of the following:
I have a new web hosting client that has 2 .ws domains and 1 .net. So before his domains expire, I plan to have him transfer to my domain registration company. But I do not sell .ws domains.
I checked ICANN for any news about .ws, the dot website domain, maybe it is just some TLD agreement that I need to sign to be able to sell them too. ICANN did not even handle the domain extension.
So I searched Google and typed in ISO 2-letter country code. And WS was for Samoa. True enough, the .ws is the ccTLD of Samoa.
After all this time I really thought .ws is a TLD for dot website. It was just some marketing guy whoever he/she is, thought of selling the .ws as dot website. And whoever that reseller is, he/she probably made some amount of money already with all the .ws domains out there.
And this also happened with .tv where .tv is the ccTLD for Tuvalu.
-Finishing a an SEO site.
-Finishing a design for a Taekwondo site.
-Closed a deal, design, SEO, domain and hosting for a real estate related website.
-Closed a deal, design, domain and hosting for a food business.
-Closed a deal, hosting and 2 add-on domains.
In the works:
-A mortgage company who is waiting for the requested logins from the domain registration company for nameserver changes. Once changed, another new web hosting client.
-A web designer just thinking of a domain name. Once he decides on what domain to get, he is another new hosting and domain client.
The rest are all proposal.
They are all coming in and I am not even hard selling yet. Just passive selling and they come. Thank you Lord.
Now what is the problem?
Too much work. 😀 But is a good problem. But I also know the mistakes of Action Online, my first web company. I was spreading myself too thin, doing everything, to the point it cannot be done. A lot of promises made to clients that were not achievable. But I know what do to now, since I already learned from those mistakes. This is one reason why I am only doing passive selling since I know what my limits are and has to streamline my whole business process first before I go for all out selling and this streamlining is in progress.
