There was an interesting thread at DNforum some time back where people listed their favourite domain related quotes and I took a note of my favourites. I’ve done this for years and have thousands of quotes collected on a variety of topics, anyway you’ll be pleased to hear I’m not going to witter on in this post but leave it to others to do the talking. Enjoy them.
"Domains have and will continue to go up in value faster than any other commodity ever known to man" — Bill Gates
"Another example of this is the word ‘ringtones.’ It is worth millions right now, but five years ago, it wasn’t worth 50 bucks. If you see a trend or something that you see coming out that the next guy doesn’t–spend ten bucks and buy up that name." — Marc Ostrofsky, President of Internet REIT
“We are all unrealistic domain owners.” — DotComGod
“If you have the money, purchase the best domain name you can get your hands on. But remember the golden rule: a domain name is only worth what you can do with it. We’ve turned down $5,000,000 for PalmSprings.com and didn’t think twice about it because we’ve monetized it so well. However, in someone else’s hands, PalmSprings.com could have been parked or less developed and worth nowhere near as much. If you have the talent and vision to develop a generic mega-domain, please give people like us a call.” — David Castello
"This is my final offer!" – Anon and everyone.
"what’s the value of a click, if that click leads to the sale of a $20m plane…?" — Rick Schwartz.
“Lowballers will be ignored” — Anon
"I guess I was afraid to smile because I was worried the audience would not bid if I looked like I was happy about making money." — Rick Latona
"I don’t think you can go wrong with .com no matter what you do." — Elliot J. Silver
"95% of all the domains I get are hand registered." — Rick Latona
"Only selling this domain name to fund another project!" — Anon
"What doesn’t sell for a dollar today may sell for ten dollars tomorrow" –Unknown
I realise there are many others. So if you can add any I’d very much like to see them.
