NamesCon Donates Used Laptops to Charity and So Can You!

NamesCon Donates Used Laptops to Charity and So Can You!

There are over 11,200 homeless students in the Las Vegas valley, and over 2,500 of those are in high school. Project 150 is a non-profit charitable organization dedicated to helping the Las Vegas valley homeless youth who continue to go to school. Instead of creating more waste, NamesCon has committed to giving away three used laptops to Project 150 after the conference – and you can help too!

We operate on a low cost, performance incentivized business model, allowing individual or small registries access to an experienced team with proven success, for a significantly lower cost than an in-house staffing. Having launched and managed 16 gTLDs, yet owning none, not only are we experienced we are unique in our impartiality. As well as day to day management, we provide a brokerage service. I personally have sold over $3.5M in premium domains, and built and priced the complete premium inventory including tiered automation stock in both Asian and Western markets.

Namescon 2016 was fantastic. I spent most of my day meeting with our top partners, charting out plans for 2016. As someone who lives outside of North America, NamesCon offers me the best opportunity to get quality face to face time with our existing partners. Personally, the highlight was getting an opportunity to play a DJ set at the coveted, Hakkasan Club, which has been home to some of the world's greatest DJs. Since then I've been signed on to do a monthly gig with one of the top nightclubs back home in Mumbai.

I founded LBM in late 2003 with a DUI directory. Back then DUI lawyers would pay a flat monthly rate to be listed on 1800DUILAWS.com and could use the phone number 1.800.DUI.LAWS in their own marketing. Now almost everything we do is leadGen. While we're still exclusively for lawyers (for now), we cover almost all legal practice areas. Way back when, we would build websites for our clients as well. That led me to buying domains for our clients. Once I discovered the domain aftermarket, I was hooked. We started selling far more legal domains than we did websites. Now our domain focus is primarily generic, premium one-word .com names.

Visitors use our site both to track the market, and to research comparable sales when buying or selling domains.
