    I have been chatting with Adam Dicker of DN Forum recently. For those that don't know, DNF is viewed by most as the premier domain forum in the world.
    It has free and paid membership options.

    Adam has kindly agreed to give our little Aussie forum a plug on DNF, and open up an Aussie section. He is also signing up here as a member. :)

    Whilst I don't necessarily want to drag members away from here, I do urge you to have a look at www.dnforum.com because that will give you an education
    in the art of domaining!

    The USA / Canada is so far ahead of our Aussie market, so I believe there are things that you can learn on there that will benefit you in terms of how you
    operate here. It is an eye opener!

    Special Offer

    Adam has very kindly agreed to offer any DN Trade member a 50% discount on any paid memberships. A paid membership imho is worth its weight in gold. He will be making a post about this shortly.

    (DN Trade or its owners receive no financial benefit from this. It is simply a service we are offering to members.)

    I've just been chatting with Adam. If anyone has difficulty getting their 50% discount when signing up, please let us know, or email sales@dnforum.com and mention DN Trade.

    Good on you Hughesey!

    By the way, these are the threads that Adam has created. It would be great if any DNT members (who are DNF members) could make a post there.

    It helps us all if we promote the .au market. ;)

    Guys, I apologise you can't see this easily. I've tried to get hold of Adam, but it's nighttime in Canada. :)
    I'm sure he will respond when dawn breaks!

    So this is the info on memberships:

    GOLD: Annual cost $US19.95 - Lifetime: $US39.95

    Less 50% = $US9.98 or $US19.98

    PLATINUM: Annual cost $US59.95 - Lifetime: $US89.95

    Less 50% = $US29.98 or $US49.98

    This is what you get for your money: http://www.dnforum.com/plans.php

    Payment is by PayPal.

    If you sign up and find that you have to pay normal price, Adam has guaranteed to refund anyone the 50% via PayPal.

    As I have said previously, if anyone has difficulty accessing the 50% discount, also please let me know.

    LOL I still can't see what I'd get for the money because you have to be registered to see.

    It might be worth suggesting to Adam that at least some pages (ie the sales pages) of his site might be better off being public.

    ;)

    Chris, that link should show you the benefits of each level of membership. It just doesn't show you the price until you register.

    That's why I have given you the prices.

    Or you can just stay as a lurker because that is free. ;)

    (But I'd rather be a member because of the benefits you may get. One post could get you a sale!)

    I just had a look at the page in IE and it displays, but it doesn't display for me in Firefox, though that might be because I have Flash Block and Adblock Plus.

    :rolleyes:

    $US199.95 for annual - $US399.95 for lifetime - and then 50% off those figures.

    Personally I think Platinum is the best value.

    Adam put this special on for us, but I do know he runs them from time to time.

    I'll let him answer that question!

    One of the good things about DNforum.com is the Verified badge
    See http://www.dnforum.com/dnfverified.php

    It makes it easier to consider buying or selling names, when all you know about the other party is that their user name is cats piss or something like that

    That's a really good point Joe.

    I notice you are a real veteran on DNF with over 4000 posts. Have you found it beneficial being a member there? Have you learnt some good things? Have you bought and sold many domains through there?

    Yes, Yes and Yes.
    The most important lessons I learned over there are
    that your reputation is everything,
    not to crap in sales threads,
    join with others in exposing fraudsters and con artists,
    not to use mini sites with syndicated content,
    that the dot com TLD really is king
    to avoid other TLDs, except your own ccTLD
    and the importance of editing old posts :)
