Investing in .TV domain name (Part1/2)

If you missed the .COM domain name business in the mid 1995's or early 2000's, well it's not too late to join this 2 billion dollar industry as reported in Fox News (The Domain Name Business is Real). Though registering a good .COM or .NET .ORG domain name extension is now a challenge. Most terms, words, keywords or street language in Webster Dictionary are all gone, probably own by individuals or in domain name business.



Let me show you how you can join this business with starting $8 to $100 dollar capital.

I worked in Information Technology field as Manager/Consultant by day and domainer by night. So when I try to register a domain name, it something to do with Information Technology, Networking, Security, Helpdesk Operations and other IT related keywords. This is where I start building my own portfolio, from 1 domain name in 1999 to approximately 1300 domain names this year; and hoping to own 10,000+ domain name before ending year 2015. For some readers, my forecast of owning 10,000+ domain names by 2015 is impossible to achieve because of growing competitions from fellow domainer, company, business bully (that use reverse hijacking to claim a domain name) but some will agree that it is possible to accomplish this task.



HOW TO?



When I started in Domain Name business, I figured that I'm already one step behind so I decided to invest in other extension such .CN .IN and .TV. Why these domain extension you ask? Well, simply .IN for india and .CN for chinese, their population counts as the most prospected Internet users in years to come. And .TV is a generic extension that everybody knows, great opportunity to build your own business in media or entertainment sector. For this article, I will show .TV statistic that was sold this year (2007) as reported in different forum e.g. NP, DNF and DS.



Reminder: If the assumed value is incorrect, please let me know so I can correct it or post your comment below. And just like other blogger/webmaster, our disclamer that this article is only use to give you our opinion based on input from different forums members. Please use this article at your own risk. LOL.

The graph deficted below is based on reported sales in Namepros, DNF and Domain State forums.

Frequent Account Lockout in Active Directory

I have a user in Windows Pro 7, and Windows Server 2003 environment that is frequently account locked out. I tried many different scenarios to resolve this account lockout issue, from resetting his password, changing a new password, remove and re-join the domain, rebooting the workstation and active directory servers.

I tried to use the command prompt utility to run "rundll32.exe keymgrdll, KRShowKeyMgr" (case sensitive) to delete the account in Windows 7 password cache, and still no luck.

Still searching for answer ... Let me know if you encounter a similar issue in Windows Pro 7 and Windows Server 2003.
