Domain Name Stock Exchange

The other day I searched on Google to find out if there was such thing a Stock Exchange for Domain Names. My search brought up a website, known as: http://fusu.com. It seemed, however, during my account registration process that this is not an active website.

This made me wonder: Why is there not a Domain Name Stock Exchange where shares could be sold in Domain Names and Websites on a common market? Also, real time valuations of domain names could be posted on a ticker tape across the screen or be retrieved through search. Links to various WhoIs? databases that list who owns domain names and the registrar’s where they are housed could be posted on the main page of the portal.

As well, a directory listing of Domain Name Brokers could be contained on a set page of the website. Marketer’s of Domains, Web Designers and Graphic Designers could advertise their services on the website and / or also be included on a directory page. The Domain Name Exchange would, in essence, be a virtual stock exchange and warehouse of domain name, as well website services.

Domain names are a form of virtual property that exist digitally, but are still and address for businesses to market their products and services to potential and regular customers. As such a medium of business communication, domain names require brokers and agents to be sold and / or leased. It amazes me that there is, not as yet, a portal such as Domain Exchange or platform where Agents and Brokers can list and promote domain name and website properties to the public.

Domain names are big business. Some domain names have sold for many millions of dollars, while other domains sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars, almost on a daily basis. While there are high prices for exclusive domain names, high commission rates can be earned by broker and sales agents who would manage the sales transactions for these items. Traders who would buy and sell domain names on behalf of clients to amass and liquidate portfolios could also earn substantial commissions on trades.

There needs to be a Domain Exchange, similar to a stock exchange where domain names could be sold in real time. Pre-registration and priority pre-registration of generic Top-Level Domains is a similar process to futures trading for commodities. Who will develop the Domain Exchange? Perhaps you will.

Is it a good idea to put all information about a business in a code? If you want potential customers to be able to show up at your office or production location, then it is perhaps alright to include the geographical or ‘brick and mortar’ address in the QR code.

Every person, just like every business, also has a QR Code or Bar Code. There are a few set characteristics by which one is categorized, defined and also evaluated. One’s economic standing, ancestry, ethnicity, appearance and personality all shape the perception others have of oneself. At one glance one is ‘sized up’ and processed in people’s minds.

Other factors can also determine the impression one leaves on others, such as; how one greet others, the inflection or projection of one’s voice, one’s posture and the stride of one’s step. One can walk in so many varied ways that there are more than 60 styles of walking.[1]  Everything about oneself provides an explanation of who one seems to be, either in actuality, or least in the mind’s eye perception that others have about oneself. Does one’s self-perception affect or influence how others see oneself? Does charisma play role in one’s self-estimation and in the valuation of one by others?

Be sure that you know your QR Code and be certain that you are display the characteristics you want to be read, at first glance / scan.

Celebrity Budgets Gone Viral

Are you a celebrity? What does that mean anyway? It means that a set person / personality is a considered to be a star: someone who is above the rest of us regular people; if there are in fact such entities. Celebrities, even though they are usually wealthy, nevertheless seem to have many challenges with their finances.

These issues are partly due to a massive entourage for whom they need to provide necessities and luxuries. Other factors that may affect their budgeting include: large parties, eating out at restaurants regularly, purchasing expensive clothes and cars, buying huge houses, as well other areas of expenditure. There are also set industry membership fees, which celebrities may need to pay; such as Sag-AFTRA dues and dues to music industry associations. These hefty dues can add up to large bills.

Celebrities like to live life to the fullest, therefore, their Accountants may not compel them to pay industry dues, when they are actually due. Instead these dues will be deferred to a future date; all the while interest may be accruing on the membership fee. Other compulsory fees, such as taxes, which if not paid when due will accrue interest and penalty fees.

Why don’t Accountants and Lawyers who are paid extremely well to represent and manage the accounts and interests of celebrities not guard them from potential penalties? Whether the matters be financial or legal, as may be the case for tax evasion, Accountants and Lawyers should safeguard their celebrity clients to ensure their continued wealth and financial stability.

Is it true that an average celebrity, is only one party away from bankruptcy? There are television shows that seem to propose this reality. How can it be that for celebrities who have such a high status in society and so much money there is no wealth and no one to trust? Perhaps there is a solution to the celebrity syndrome.

A celebrity could draw a salary, from their earnings, consisting of only ten percent of the money they receive. This principle is based on the theory of David Chilton, author of the Wealthy Barber. The remaining ninety percent could be allotted as follows: fifty percent for retirement, twenty percent for bills (butlers /maids, mortgage, taxes, Accountant and Lawyer), twenty percent for parties, restaurants, and a fun social life.

Celebrities, whose lifestyles are likened to royalty, may not be able to focus their attention on matters of importance. They may mistakenly assume that one of their  paid professionals is always managing their financial affairs, with the utmost integrity. But is it possible to find trustworthy friends, when one has massive wealth and status? Can a celebrity maintain their star studded lifestyle, for the life of their career?
