PALM BEACH, FL - How do I go about selling domain names? That was the question highlighted in a Seattle Times news story on Nov. 16, 2019 by author Patrick Marshall. While the article mentioned some popular online tools such as Namebio.com and Estibot.com (which help give a ball-park figure on potential value), the author seemed to leave out one of the best options for selling a domain; a domain name broker. The author probably should have mentioned a “domain broker” along … [Read more...]
Sedo.com’s Buy, Sell, Park Domains Venue Getting More Competitively Priced?
PALM BEACH - Things at SEDO are usually fairly quiet. Outside of their weekly sales list releases for domain names sold, I hear very little from the sales venue, which acts sort of like an MLS system for domain names. However, the last few weeks has been different. On Tuesday May 7, 2019, Ron Jacksoon's DNJournal.com reported what was characterized as a “major change” at Sedo, which would eliminate the minimum sale fee that takes a big chunk out of proceeds from smaller … [Read more...]

NEW YORK, NY - Someone landed a fantastic deal on Flippa this weekend. Amazingly, I lost the auction despite my accidental astronomical one-too-many zero’s high-bid. I’m not going to mention what domain it was (to avoid any politics on the issue), [all luck to the winner who got a great deal] but the domain name was a single word .com highly-commercial term with an Estibot well over $200,000.00 and it sold for about 9 percent of that. Not a .net domain selling for 9%, but … [Read more...]
Round Two: .COM Domain Values List, “Domainer Domains”, Not Much Change
NEW YORK, NY - Yesterday, we looked at how some commercial interest .com domain names have changed in value over the last decade. There really was not too much to see with about half of the domain names going up in value (46%) and half going down (51%). I guess it is fair to say that more declined than went up, but it was pretty close to even. Today I wanted to look at domains with less commercial value, so we will looked at pure domainer domains. This list examines 35 … [Read more...]
