HappyHour Chat: Take The Fear Out Of Domaining

Last week we celebrated our 1 year anniversary with a spectacular Halloween themed chat. Brian Gilbert, the director of Business Management at Thomason Management joined us for a chat on how to take the fear out of domaining. Thomason Management, Inc manages and develops premium domain portfolios including Innovation HQ, Inc., who owns WhatIsMyIp.com, Earth.com, Unemployment.com, LoveQuotes.com plus many more premium names.

We had a wonderful time chatting with other members of the community and enjoying each other’s Halloween costume. We were fortunate to gain the support of several industry companies who were generous enough to supply us with great prizes for our anniversary.

Among those were NamesCon who gave 3 FREE conference passes for the best Halloween costumes, Escrow.com who supplied the $10 gift cards to Candy.com for the first 10 arrivals, Peach State Media, who gave a $50 SkinIt gift card to be raffled, the Dot Club Registry who gave a $100 Amazon gift card to be raffled and Sobi Graphics who have a Graphic Package with $75 to be raffled as well. We would like to thank you all for your support!

Check out the video below to see why Charlotte Gilbert won the top spot for the best costume. By the way, we had a mystery guest who won one of our NamesCon passes- Patriot Lover. Patriot Lover is you’re out there, let us know who you are so we can get you your prize!
