1. I find out that a lot of interested domainers have a challenge with buying the right domain names to resell. Most of us have a portfolio of terrible names (I also did at the start and even some poor names now). I will therefore do two things (free). I will select some interesting recent sales so we can all observe them and learn from them.

2. If you also did sell a name (even if its $0.5), you are free to post it and then I will review that sale too.

3. Sorry, we won't be reviewing good/bad names here. The other domaining thread is good for that.

4. I will post one currently unregistered domain name that has potentials. Buy at your own risk. I will advise you to undertake due diligence before buying.

5. If there is a coupon somewhere, I will post such nice offers.

Best Wishes*

Great thinking
Re: Learn The Domain Name Business - See What Sold, See What Just Dropped by CPriest: 10:20am On Dec 11, 2015
3. uploadfolder.net - Sold at $1650. Am surprised.

4. exporters.info - Sold at $90, and 20 bids. Now something must have been interesting about it for so many people to want it at so little a price.

5. vpxb.com - Sold at $331. 36 bids. Four-letter character lovers, is this a nice / average price?

6. 94735.com - $900

7. RegencyStore.com - $1000


Fellows, I have selected a representative range of domain trades that occurred within the last 24h. Let us learn from the names, and from the prices.

Sorry sir, I mentioned earlier won't be doing appraisals, the other domain business thread is on that and much more. Please repost this on that thread and am sure great guys e.g @2sexy etc will respond.

9. forumindex.com was sold 3 hours ago. 5 bids ended at $21 sale price.

Seems low but the seller will have a reason for selling off at that price. But of course once you put your domain name in an auction you have no choice than to abide by the final price (if you had no reserve set).

1. yogashop.com - sold at $20,000

2. thehairshop.com - sold at $20,000

Review - Business domain names, 8 characters and 11 characters respectively. See #2, interesting that a domain name with a the prefix will rake in that much. I would likely never have asked for that much if I owned that name.




I tried something yesterday with this. I went to expired domain and I put shop as my keyword, it brought out some names but still yet to understand how it works.
Thanks for this bro.
Learning continues.
You might want to enlighten me on this regard

@jammeyboy, congratulations on your sale. Maybe setting a little reserve may protect you in future. Best Wishes*

Incase you want to buy a 'shop' domain as part of your portfolio,

1. thread carefully, don't just buy any name with shop
2. make a list of the most popular things traded
3. search expired domains for each of the words on your list
4. you may not get a domain with shop, but I promise you, you will get an equally nice domain name

There is something I spotted somewhere. I am still examining it. It is actually not for domainers but to help people name their projects. It contains some hot names. Will let you know later. For now, try those tips. They are for you @jammeyboy. Come with a list of what you have and I promise I will give you one or two hot domain name ideas with shop.

Fne. You should select those having a lot of interest (product and business wise). I will pick baby, test, and travel.

Which ones would you pick? Let me know and then we can do a quick analysis of past sales on those keywords. Then you would have learnt one more thing about selecting domains.

If I'm to pick 3, I would had chosen baby, travel and project. Let's start with your 3

Ok, that's cool too. Project is in then. So let me quickly work on them. Will get a list of top sales for each of the four words, and then the lowest value sales (but that doesn't mean the domains were 'worthless'), may just be that it was bought at expireddomain auction prices).

Will get back shortly.

@ajsans, @jammeyboy

In my own strategy, basing domain name portolio on common (popular) words helps guarantee at least some interest in the name. The more interest a word has, the more interest a domain name based on the word will have. Is it a bit clear?

To my promise, I will examine some domain sales with the various words we chose starting with baby.

11. Quotebaby.com - $89,965 (2011)

12. ModernBaby.com - $55,000 (2012)

13. BabyCity.com - $35,000 (2015)



For travel,

14. Travelo.com - $46,500 (2015)

15. Travel-ticker.com - $23,750 (2015) - And it even has a hyphen? Nice.

16. Travelbucks.com - $20,000 (2015)


I observed the travel keyword has more names sold

17. Projects.com - $82,000 (2015)

18. Projectlife.com - $75,000 (2013)

19. ScienceFairProjects - 33,000 euros

20. craftprojectsfreeinstructions.com - $5000 (29 characters?)


For test

21. Test.net - $40,000 (2013)

22. Hometests.com - $22,000 (2013)

23. Test.hiv - $1,812 (2015)



Ok. Can you guess how to use keywords now? You can search expireddomains or so for this keyword(s) as you earlier said and then select deleted domain names or expiring domain names you thing people will love.

I did and got this travel*** .org (@jammeyboy, this could be nice. Valued at $500+). If you need it let me know.

Did you get anything?

Agree its better to be in learning mode than wasting money mode. I was once there, and hundreds of dollars were lost.

It is travellodge.org. I would have sent you the screenshot so you see how I fished it out, but I have closed it.
.com, .net, .biz, .info, .us are all registered for that particular domain name.
Not sure about keyword spy. I am my own keyword spy smiley, and I have got more than enough (hundreds of good domains) to register. But you know we are gifted differently. I may check it later and then talk about it.

Sorry I posted it publicly. On your 15 domains, have you listed them on Flippa? Do so if you haven't.
I think Afternic also allows free listing.
Create an account on Sedo too.
Re: Learn The Domain Name Business - See What Sold, See What Just Dropped by CPriest: 10:28pm On Dec 13, 2015
24. Agays.com - Sold at $230

@paulsir. Nice one. BINs are great for selling domain names sometimes as people can make up their mind and maybe feel safer that a seller isn't being "greedy". Secondly there are more channels promoting fixed price names than "Make Offers".
