Shift the paradigm : Clueless realtors and domain names

A lot of domain investors facilitate domain sales basing their approach on how the real estate market operates. While there are similarities in this analogy, there are also differences which make the use of real estate an imperfect example to demonstrate how the domain market works.

GoDaddy : Openly ignoring the BIN price and using the client as an excuse

In May I wrote about how GoDaddy continues to send unsolicited offers for domains that are listed for sale on other marketplaces, with a BIN. What’s the catch?

GoDaddy continues to pester domain owners with “offers” that ignore the BIN

I wrote about this issue before, and it’s obvious that GoDaddy and its team of brokers don’t really care.

Old domains : From hand-registration to sale, 17 years later

Between 2001 – 2003 I was perusing dropped domain lists provided by one of the best paid-for services at the time, DomainsBot. Hundreds of dictionary domains were available, in .com, .net and .org. I scanned through thousands of domains, looking for worthy registrations. I think I hurt my eyes on a daily basis! Registering single [...] Continue reading

Brokerage persistence : Why are domain BIN prices on ignore?

Happy New Year! For me, the new year began with plenty of domain offers and a solid mid four figure sale, via the Uniregistry Market. It’s where I list my domain portfolio to invite inquiries. The negotiation was carried out through the Uni (former Uniregistry) checkout process. The “parking” of domain names with a BIN [...] Continue reading
