Afternic Sells Nearly $700k in Domains

18

Afternic just released its sales report for last week, and the company sold over 125 domain names for $2,000 or more (publicly disclosed sales only). In total, the company sold just shy of $700,000 worth of domain names.

To be quite honest, many of the domain names that were sold are names I wouldn’t even hand register. It goes to show that if you put your names for sale on a site like Afternic or Sedo, a buyer may just find your name.

    “To be quite honest, many of the domain names that were sold are names I wouldn’t even hand register”

    MANY=ALL

    where is mine??? http://www.StupidDomainbuyers dot com

    Someone needs to ask them why are you buying those names??

    February 22nd, 2011 at 6:35 pm

    Mark

    I agree BullS – It’s really amazing some of these domains are going for this??

    February 22nd, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    SL

    What’s more amazing is that every figure ending in 88 was a house name. Meaning the buyer didn’t even bother negotiating, just clicked ‘buy now’ and entered their credit card.

    jumpingmouse.com @ $5,188.00!
    what a steal, that name alone is worth 50 times that much. Just think if you developed that name, how many jumping mouses you could sell a month!!

    Wow, that’s a lot of domains to sell in one week. Congrats to Afternic, the buyers and sellers… and of course to all the brokers out there :-)

    It’s been VERY active lately here.

    I sold one of my own domains last night, did a buyer broker deal today, made a five figure offer today, made a buyer broker six figure offer last week and just got another client under agreement as buyer broker.

    The end users are in the game and this is great for everyone.

    Many still shake their heads when owners turn down a strong offer but they are here folks!

    Get deals done. Go up a little if you are the buyer. Come down a little if you are the seller. Let the end users buy the domains they need for marketing or development and move on to the next one.

    Honestly, there may only be ONE buyer in the world for your domain. Sell it if you don’t have any development plans.

    What about future value? This is the future. You are not going to live long enough to sell all your domains.

    Be reasonable and sell if a qualified buyers makes you a strong offer.

    …and you’ll make a domain broker happy too :-)

    Nice post Rob – I love the enthusiasm!!

    I am hoping to sell CarRenting.com through a broker agreement at the moment – it’s no PinkZone.com or FineWorld.com but I have my fingers crossed, lol.

    One needs to ask how many unique buyers and other details on the sales data. As far as 88s, that is a pricing syntax I decided to roll with a long time ago instead of 99, which is still often used in domains, you can see we use it with phone.com pricing too but not domainmarket so we dont get confused with buydomains, http://www.phone.com/ and I speak about pricing strategy and the specific number 88 in my book for that matter.

    Mike

    How many of those are their own “buydomains” domains? Probably 90% of them. We have no shot at selling domains on Afternic since they were bought out. We’d have better luck at the lottery.

    February 23rd, 2011 at 8:55 am

    Elliot Silver

    @ Mike

    “Probably 90% of them.”

    Instead of making a guess, why don’t you do a Whois history search on a bunch of them and actually back up what you’re posting with facts? The info is right there for you.

    February 23rd, 2011 at 9:00 am

    Mike Mann

    Its not BuyDomains.com fault if your names are listed and nobody wants to buy them, but their in house names are superior quality and price and so they do sell, that does not indicate you were prejudiced in the market, just your names didnt cut it.

    February 23rd, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Mike

    Mike and Elliot, any name ending in 88 is a BuyDomains name. And astute individual knows that. Also, I did do a whois check. Anyone that wants to double-check that, be my guest. Also, its not just my names that dont sell because of 2+ million other domains that Buydomains floods the Afternic inventory with, its anyones. Afternic was ruined a few years ago. Its no longer a marketplace that one can sell names at. Not to mention, the online software is riddled with bugs and no one addresses it. Its just not worth it and until a major change occurs, Afternic is not a viable venue.

    February 23rd, 2011 at 2:44 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Mike

    See my most recent post where you can see that 44% of the 25 highest value sales are NOT in-house sales. Just because your names aren’t selling on Afternic does not mean that others aren’t selling theirs:

    February 23rd, 2011 at 2:47 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Mike

    I counted just over 100 sales with “88″ in them out of 335. It’s nowhere near your 90% guesstimation.

    February 23rd, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    Mike Mann

    I basically invented the 88 extension for domains, and I welcome everyone to use it if it will help them sell :-) When they make millions from my advice they should give generously to http://Grassroots.org/

    February 23rd, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Gazzip

    I’v been trying the 88 thing for a while now on sedo but as of yet it has’nt produced a sale

    ..maybe I should have priced them all $88 instead ;)
