Survey: DNForum is Best Domain Name Forum

Rating the top domain name forums.

DNForum is the best domain name forum, according to a survey of 500 domain owners in the 5th Annual Domain Name Wire Survey.

37% of respondents who have visited a domain forum selected DNForum as the best. In the five years of the survey, DNForum has been selected top forum four times.

DNForum is owned by Adam Dicker, who until recently was also a vice president with GoDaddy. Now that he is unchained from full-time duty, you can expect to see him working on DNForum more.

In second place was NamePros.com, grabbing 28% of the vote.

DomainBoardroom.com received a respectable 12% of votes, a high number for a private forum.

DomainState, AcornDomains, and DI.pl (a Polish domain board) also received votes. DomainState was recently sold to Trellian. If the company decides to open the site up to search engines and promote it more, you can expect it to become a challenger over the next year or two.

Survey Focus: Which Domain Name Forum is Best?

Cast your vote for the best domain name forum.

For many years, there have been two major domain forums, DNForum and NamePros. Behind that were a number of smaller forums. While that remains true, some shakeup is in progress. DomainState, a smaller forum, has been put on the auction block. Hopefully DomainState, which has a very different audience and feel than the larger forums, sticks around. It seems that bidding interest is high.

But which domain forum is best? It’s a question that has been on the Domain Name Wire survey for the past five years, and it’s always a close vote.

This year the question is the same as always, but we’ve promoted Domain Boardroom to the multiple choice selection this year. It has frequently been a top write-in vote, so it was time to add it to the list.

Cast your vote on question #16 in the 2010 Domain Name Wire Survey.
