A (relatively) overlooked data point when looking at domain name sales

When I first started buying and selling domain names I used the current top domain sales as my inspiration. I saw some nice two-word .COMs that were selling in the five figure range and went to town. Of course I quickly learned that I had bought a bunch of junk, it wasn’t just all one-word […]

What I learned from looking at inbound offers on my domains earlier this year

Below is a screenshot of the inbound offers I received on my domains parked at DomainNameSales.com for the month of May. I currently have my domains parked between DomainNameSales.com, Efty and Afternic. As most of my readers know, I don’t make millions with domain names, instead I sell between 0 – 2 domains a month.

When you buy a domain, how long do you think you’ll hang onto it before you sell?

It’s something many people don’t think of when they buy a domain, but more people should – when do you realistically expect to sell? This question is tied to an equally important question – what do you want to sell it for? If you look at some of the top Domain Investors, the people who […]

Efty founder brings up an important topic for Domain Investors – Sales Commission

Doron Vermaat, the founder of Efty.com shared an article on their blog today that I think should probably be required reading for new domain investors. Heck, I’d say it’s good for experienced investors to read as well since it’s a topic that should really be top of mind. In the article Doron shares some of […]

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 […]

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 […]
