How did a four-word .COM sell for $100,000?

I have to say I was pretty impressed with Uniregistry’s latest list of sales, with close to $30M in domain sales already this year it’s fair to say Uniregistry Market is on fire. A lot of the sales made perfect sense, one-word .COMs like Kombucha.com or Squeeze.com selling for six-figures is pretty darn normal. But […]

Uniregistry Marketplace continues to solidify itself as a top domain marketplace with close to $30M in sales so far this year

Well the numbers are in and they are damn impressive. Uniregistry, which quickly gained notoriety as the startup-friendly registrar, then opened a marketplace that is quickly becoming the go-to resource for startups acquiring domain names. And the numbers don’t lie, with close to $30M in sales so far this year it’s safe to say that […]

How to link your Domain Name Sales account to the Uniregistry Market

I’ve been using Domain Name Sales for years and with the release of Uniregistry Market somehow I missed the fact that you can actually connect the two. I stumbled across this when I was looking at Uniregistry’s You Tube channel and found a video walking users through the process. Here’s the video: It’s a pretty […]

Sedo did a nice UI update…but the backend still seems to be stuck in the past

It’s no secret that Sedo sells a lot of domains. They also have some of the best brokers out there with proven track records for selling names like it’s going out of style. On top of that, they have been rolling out UI updates to improve the look-and-feel of the site…but unfortunately, like I said […]

When it comes to flipping two-word .COMs, Logan Flatt is on a roll

I always laugh when people say that the only people who make money with domain names are the guys who got started in the early days. When I started in 2007 just about everyone told me I was too late, and another “late-comer” that is making waves lately is Logan Flatt, who has been flipping […]

Efty landing pages just got faster – more than twice as fast for me

A couple of days ago I wrote a post about Efty, a platform for domain investors to manage their names and put custom for sale landing pages on them, like this one: While I’ve been testing out Efty with some of my own domains I noticed that the landing pages loaded pretty slowly. I also […]

Does the page load time of a landing page impact the number of inbound offers you get?

The short answer is – yes. As with most things in life, people are busy and the amount of time someone has to wait directly relates to sales. In the apparel world retailers see this happen in-store all the time, long lines at dressing rooms usually means less sales or less items purchased on average. […]

Boom! Media Options brokers the sale of X.com back to its original owner – Elon Musk

It’s not ever day that a one letter .COM sells period, and it’s almost never that the previous owner is the buyer (in fact this might be the first time it has happened). Couple this with the fact that that original owner is Elon Musk and it’s fair to say the sale of X.com which was […]

Sedo vs. Afternic – What Performs Better For You?

This post brings me back, way back, since I actually wrote my first post comparing Sedo and Afternic back in 2007, almost ten years ago. Since then I’ve continued to use both services and while I honestly don’t see a ton of sales through either, I do get a sale here and there. Last week I […]

Do you look at dollar amount or ROI when pricing your domains (or neither)

When I first started selling domains I had all these weird rules for myself. I told myself things like, “I’ll never sell a domain name for under $1,500 because someone out there can definitely afford at least $1,500, and heck that money isn’t going to change my life in any way.” After a while, I […]
