English is poor, but I think you should be able to read.

I am a Danish company, the DDA Microphones Go to A/S CEO, my name is Jeff.Mapeer Investment Co., Ltd. I do understand, they are the investment domain and network brands. They use is open to registered domain names in China, cybersquatting many companies in China, these companies need to earn high profits from the high-priced transfer other people or company, lead to these domain names into the hands of Criminal elements, the use of these domain names to mix the other company’s Web site, there are many counterfeit and fraudulent Web site, seriously damaging the interests of these companies.

So you should register in advance and protect your company important domain. Is a start I did not attach importance,my company domain name in China is cybersquatting by Mapeer Investment Co., Ltd, before I received the e-mail notification of a Chinese company, said Mapeer Investment Co., Ltd. to register some domains and network brand of our company in China.to ask me not to use their own priority the registration of these domain names and network brand before Mapeer Investment Co., Ltd., but at that time I did not attach importance to spam processing.

The feel can sfsffaf.com, but the result is not, then some site microphones.cn; microphones.com.cn; microphones.net.cn; microphones.hk; microphones.tw etc.
Counterfeit my website microphones.com deceive my client, a huge loss for our company. Many customers call to our company, ask microphones.com.cn above products is not our company, why so cheap, but buy only to find serious quality problems.The asked microphones.com.cn our company website,Because a lot of customers know that our website microphones.com.Call to the majority of customers in Asia and China, I did not expect the Chinese market is so large,Unfortunately, our company in the Chinese domain name has been cybersquatting. So I remind you that need to protect your domain name, whether you are large companies or small companies. This is our company experience.

It’s great to see the domain industry getting more and more mainstream.

I’m surprised it didn’t mention building out niche sites and domain parking since the title of the article is “How To Make Money With Domain Names”. Though you can’t really make a large amount of revenue (except in rare cases) they can act like dividends in stocks.

LOL… It’s certainly a high level piece and it targets people who know nothing about the domain business.

That’s why I think the author may have thought the term “olympics” and its adjective “olympic” were generic enough to be used in a domain (I personally wouldn’t reg/buy names with these words though).

According to the author, “Timely names can be great investments when combined with events occurring in that year, such as 2022OlympicPlayers.com.”

I think investing in trademark names, like Olympics, is a very bad idea. I do think timely descriptive domain names like LondonHotels.com to coincide with the Olympics are good investments, but I would never recommend to invest in or purchase names that have trademarks in them.

Also, it’s interesting to notice how the weight of .com vs other TLDs in a domain name is never mentioned.
