5 Good Domain Names on Ebay

18

I don’t sell on Ebay (or really buy anything) these days, but every few weeks, I check out the domain name section to see if there are any deals. I sort the domain names from high to low and select the 200 auctions per page option. I skip to about page 3 or 4 to avoid the idiots who think pricing their names at $21,000,000 is going to draw attention.

In doing my search last night, I came across 5 pretty solid names at somewhat reasonable buy it now prices. Based on some of the listings, I think you can probably negotiate with the domain owner to get better prices (these are not affiliate links).

I didn’t verify that these listings are legitimate, nor did I check out the owner’s rating/feedback on Ebay, so of course do your own due diligence before doing business with anyone.

Did you see any great auctions on Ebay that I missed?

    i don’t sell on ebay but i still buy there. stopped using it for years ’cause it’s too difficult to weed through 15,000 names of overpriced worthless crap. but i learned to get to about half of the best names there quickly after i read a post by teendomainer. i’ve managed to buy a few pretty decent names for next to nothing.

    What’s the secret to doing that – or where is Teen Domainer’s post?

    Sorry Elliot, but I think your list of domains is worse than Omer Kaya’s.
    How is FloorSeats.com at $50,000 better than RentBedroom.com at $98 ???

    Do you have an Ebay Partner Network account and hope that we will click through to the sale and buy it??

    Poor post.

      Can you not read? I said “these are not affiliate links” and for the record, I do not have an Ebay affiliate account and none of the ads currently on my site are affiliate links/banners.

      Do you know what “floor seats” are? They’re the tickets that cost thousands of dollars each to New York Knicks and other basketball games. The Brooklyn Nets are selling floor seat season tickets for $66,000/each next year. That’s a quarter of a million dollars for 4 seats. I do think $50k is too much for the name, but it’s a good name and the owner is accepting offers.

      “Rent Bedroom” doesn’t make sense. First, “rent bedroom” isn’t proper English, and second, who the heck rents a bedroom??

    LOL

    Elliot –

    Sure you know this – There are people who rent a bedroom in a house with other people in it however they, for the most part, will refer to it as renting a room. The term rentbedroom is poor but if it was rentaroom.com I am sure, as you know, it would have nice value.

    In the US if I have paid $66,000 for a season ticket to the knicks am I able to sell the individual games at any cost that I want? In the UK we cannot do this.

    I like this post.
    I was going to start checking out eBay knowing ahead of time it would take sometime.
    You bring up a good point with FloorSeats.com
    It has commercial appeal based on what they sell and the amount.
    Many names have that with little search and recent hand regs. Really comes down to finding a buyer that understands that and not go off of the valuate, exact match and age of name.
    Obviously ticket brokers in this case, but I have read some of the big ones margins have been getting squeezed of late.
    I’m sure you could make something happen with this one though

    I agree… I think the demand is still great on the high end seats.

    Craigslist has names as well depending on where one lives if one has the time

    If those were ebay affiliate links they would have “rover” in the beginning of the url, ex:

    http://rover.ebay.com/rover/

    On ebay you say… don’t forget Leah.com :) Top ranked female first name.

    One issue with ebay is sorting through the names without missing any good ones.

    June 5th, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    Josh

    Very true E, I notice my inquiries jump the last day since a popular viewing option is “ending soon”. Another popular one is search by “highest price” and go page by page, problem is so much ridiculous stuff to sort through the first several pages.

    “…second, who the heck rents a bedroom??”

    Ok Elliot.
    check live website rentAbedroom.com to have some ideas about renting bedrooms.

    What about
    GrandSeats.com $49 on Ebay ?

    @ Omer Kaya

    The area where the seats are located are called “floor seats” not “grand seats”

    @Omer,

    I would operate in another niche instead of getting name ideas from domains featured on domain platforms. Forget about seats for now.

    Buy descriptive domains with good exact match searches. I would rather own RoomRentals dot com or RentRoom dot com. IMO, I would not deal much with rent and rooms unless they are GEO-related and or specific. Good luck.

    Better is use Facebook along with sites like sedo to advertise your domain.
