The sky is the limit for domain prices 
We have been acquiring interesting domain names over the last years, for future business plans, but we noticed a recent change in the domainers market.

Prices are rocketing into the sky, for .com domains that are not always very descriptive, short or usable for businesses. There are companies out there asking 6 figures for domains that we paid two hundred USD for a year ago.

I'm not surprised that the US have a credit crisis at the moment, we used to have a system with prices based on supply and demand, but the these people are asking higher and higher prices for no reason. This is picked up by others in the domainers market, making the prices increase for less interesting domains as well.

Seems like I'm complaining about having to pay a lot of money, and to be honest, yes I do. But I never complain if the price is high, but also worthwhile, and that is not the case here.

Quarantine at NL domains 
On September 6, 2008, the dutch registry ( SIDN ) will introduce the quarantine period for .NL domains .

A deleted domain will be in a wait-status for 3 days, giving the owner time to reconsider. After these 3 days, the quarantine period will start and continue for 40 days. Within these 40 days, a domain can be re-activated at the current registrar (costs approximately 60 euro's), but can also be transferred to another registrar (costs approximately 110 euro's).

New company: innonext 

After some long talks we decided to start a new company for our development activities. This way it will be more transparent what all of our projects costs and profits are and we are able to spend more time innovating, creating and developing totally new projects.

Our focus will off course be the dutch market, our customers are 12Register , YourHosting , StartHosting and Aorta Incasso to start with.

Hit by a virus 
Not my computer, but myself! I have the Epstein-Barr virus and have to rest for at least 2 weeks.

That means I can't do anything, but that is something that is automatically caused by the virus. Whenever I do anything, I immediately get very tired and get pain in my muscle's. I have to sleep and rest a lot, and normally I have a hard time doing that, but now it is not a problem. Unfortunately, working is prohibited as well so I won't be able to do a lot. But do keep in contact with the office and check my emails daily.

Hope to be well soon!

Chicago: HostinCon 2008 
So here we are in chicago at HostingCon. Our remotely printed flyers have found their way into the conference bags of all visitors, we are very curious on the outcome of that. I'll post a longer message later, but here are some (mobile made) pictures of yesterday.
