The nominees for the 2014 Domainers Choice Awards have been announced, and I have posted them below by category. Thank you to those who nominated me for awards. It’s always nice to be recognized by my peers, and I appreciate it, although I don’t believe I am deserving of either award. From the looks of it, there were some excellent nominations made.

    Elliot

    Thanks for the news and I’m deeply honored to have been nominated.

    Regarding Dave Evanson, I love Dave but doesn’t he still work with Sedo?

    How can he be an Independent Broker then, just seems strange.

    Congrats to all the nominee’s including yourself.

    @ Michael..It was more than strange it was incorrect and my error.

    It’s been corrected..I appreciate the heads up!

    I’ve known Dave so long that to me he’s “just Dave”

    I take my red face and hang my head in shame :-) sorry Dave and everyone!

    No problem I have been known to have a few errors on my site as well.

    Congrats to all

    Andrew Rosener

    Wow! Exciting news and I’m honored to be names among such esteemed individuals and companies! Thank you to everyone who has supported us and continue to do so.

    I love domains!

      AR – It’s amazing how you use only your first name when criticizing or “attacking” in the blog comments, but you use your full name when “supportive” or “positive”……..Character counts….It’s never too late to do the right thing.

      Just saw this comment.

      I know several people named Andrew who are in the domain business, and I am sure there are others I do not know because Andrew is a very common name. What makes you think Andrew Rosener is making other comments without his last name? Should every “Aaron” comment on blogs and forums be attributed to you?

    Congrats to all. All great people and companies in that group.

    Paul Nicks

    Honored to be nominated, thanks to all who voted myself and GoDaddy’s aftermarket products into the top three.

    Wow….I’m humbled and honored. Definitely a lot of great names on the ballot. Going to be some tough decisions when it comes time to vote.

    Donna Mahony

    Thank you everyone! It’s an honor to be doing the Domainer’s Choice Awards and a responsibility we take seriously.

      Donna will you be releasing how many total votes each person in each category received. Would love to know the exact amount of people that actually voted.

      In reply to Donna Mahony | March 25th, 2014 at 11:57 am

      Donna Mahony

      @todd, no, we won’t be releasing each total. We were heading towards 300 total voters but didn’t quite make it.

      In reply to todd | March 25th, 2014 at 12:24 pm

      todd

      Thanks for answering my question Donna.

      On another note there is a person that deserves some recognition for a lot of the information that we read but unfortunately there is not a category on your list that he fits in. Raymond Hackney of Hybrid Domainer works tirelessly for many blogs including The Domains, Morgan Linton, Adam Dickers The art of the name, DotWhatever, Hybrid Domainer etc….Maybe some type of honorable mention would be nice. I am sure that many readers would agree with me.

      Thanks for your time

      I think you probably gave all of those people/companies the kiss of death with your endorsement.

      In reply to Raider | March 24th, 2014 at 12:57 pm

      Raider

      What was it you wrote about T.H.I.N.K.?

      In reply to Elliot Silver | March 24th, 2014 at 1:00 pm

      Donna Mahony

      Nice list Raider, were those who you nominated? Good job cheering them on!

      In reply to Raider | March 24th, 2014 at 1:34 pm

      Raider

      Thanks Donna, unfortunately I missed the boat when nominations were taken, I must say it’s a very good list though, all deserving to be there… I’d choose a GTLD but my favs are not listed.

      As for you Elliot, all the nice things I posted about you and you insult me for no reason? whats up with that? When someone does it to you, you get your panties in a wad and preach to us about T.H.I.N.K…. Have some class, be more like Frank.

      In reply to Donna Mahony | March 25th, 2014 at 1:18 am

      Elliot Silver

      I was kidding around…

      You are right though, it wasn’t nice and I apologize. I meant to apologize yesterday but ended up taking the afternoon off.

      LOL, you crack me up!

      I think you are right on with the list winners.

    BullS

    Thanks for nominating my site “BullS” the website of the year again and again….

    tears rolling down on my cheeks

    Raymond Hackney

    Congrats to everyone, going to be tight voting to see who wins, we need an Oscar like name for the award. There certainly is nothing obvious about the outcome, because there is not one category where everyone is not a legit contender. Now it will become like awards season and the push behind the Oscars.

    Ads in Variety, press releases, etc… ( I kid)

    Congrats on two nominations Elliot.

    To all, your continued support is much appreciated. Many thanks.

    favorite new gtld

    There should have been an option of , None of the above.

    Where are all the other GTLDS, why there were only three gtlds? what happened to .sexy, .directory, .estate, .company, .college, .holdins, .domains ?

    March 25th, 2014 at 11:14 pm

      Donna Mahony

      @sukhjin I guess you didn’t vote. There was a space and you could write anything in it that you wanted. In all the categories. I didn’t suggest any, just let people write in their answers. There couldn’t have been a “None of the above” since there was just a blank space to fill in. The list Elliot posted was the top three choices people wrote in in each category.

      I don’t mind criticism but you really have at least had a look at what you’re critiquing before you speak.
