lsland.com sold today Newbies Beware!!

September 4, 2021

lsland.com sold for $5,400 USD. Be careful buying domain names with i and l in them.

Capital i looks like lower case L in many font faces. Many have been tricked into buying lsland.com instead of island.com. 

island.com spelled with an i would sell for $500,000 or into the millions, which is a red flag that something is not right. 

Brightstar.com Rebrands to Likewize.com

August 19, 2021

Here are some poster’s comments at a popular forum:

  • Downgrade in my opinion.
  • Brightstar is brighter.
  • Congratulations to likewise.com, they are about to see an increase in traffic from all the typos.
  • I’m constantly amazed how the fundamentals of branding/marketing are lost even at the highest levels. What do you pay these people for?
  • Radio test results from Radiotest.me:
    9 respondents out of 10 spelled “brightstar”
    0 respondents out of 10 spelled “likewize”

I feel the same as the comments above.

Is the name available?

July 13, 2021

One of the first criteria to look at is ownability and URL availability. Nowadays you will be hard pressed to find a name where the .com is still available. I often will look at .io, .co, get(word).com, or (word)hq.com as my top alternatives to a dot com, but I always prefer the dot com if available or it’s attainable in the future. It maybe parked by a domain investor or someone is asking a ridiculous price, but that’s always better than an established business using your preferred .com. If not, you will always be fighting a search battle with some other brand that owns your dot com.
