Dear colleagues,

I used to think it was easy to differentiate between active domains, in
the sense that they are used by someone with a Web site or email, versus
domains that were used for investment and speculation. Being part of the
Domain Name Marketplace Indicators advisory panel taught me that this is
a very complicated issue, with a range of fades of grey, from the pure
speculators to the web site at the other end.
The domain name marketplace indicators latest data has been published
recently.

Kindest regards,

Olivier
