Contest! Make $50 by Selling Me Your Crappiest Domain Name

65

We all have crappy domain names in our portfolio. Maybe we were a bit buzzed when we registered them, had spelling problems, or there were other reasons for registering these crappy domain names. Well, now’s your chance to make $50 from your most terrible .com domain name.

Here’s how it will work:

  • Everyone is entitled to submit just one horrible .com domain name they own
  • Submitted domain names must have been registered prior to February 1, 2011
  • On Friday morning (3/4), I will pick out the 5 worst domain names (in my opinion) and set up a poll
  • People can vote in the poll, which will close on Sunday night at around 10pm (one vote per IP)
  • I will then pay $50 via Paypal for the worst domain name, as voted by blog readers, and the winner will push the domain name to me.

So, look through your domain portfolios and select your absolute worst .com domain name and post it in the comment section (No trademark infringing names). If you post more than one bad domain name, you will be disqualified because I don’t want to have to sift through your bad names and pick the worst one!

When was the last time you made $50 from your crappiest domain name?

If you have any questions, post them here.

    What a great idea for a contest! I look forward to seeing the entries. I think I’m too emotionally attached to my crappiest domain name to enter it into the contest, but I’ll think about it. :)

    You should make dotCOM, dotNET and dotORG ineligible :)

    DifferentColour.com… No end users, not many searches /month. That’s my worst!

    If this qualifies it will be a contender. This name was made for this contest.

    I literally picked it up on sunday Jan 30th 2011 – just made the deadline. It expired at the registrar and I grabbed it for $50. I thought I was buying a good aged keyword domain. I do well with keyword dashes, nets and orgs in the SE’s for my adult sites, so this should have been an end user deal. I might have had a bit to drink, lol. I am not dyslexic and I spell better than this usually. The real winner is the original registrant that let the domain expire but had held on to it since 2001.

    And the winner might be – Drum roll…

    Balck-Porn.com

    A mispelled hyphentated $50 domain, lol. Bail me out Elliot.

    Thanks for the fun post,

    Mark

      Sorry, but that’s too much like a Fandango typo for me.

    I think I have a pretty crappy domain name but since domain has public whois info. (ugh, I know that wasn’t too wise) I’d rather email it do you directly.

    February 28th, 2011 at 2:54 pm

      Elliot Silver

      @ Jon

      Might as well post it since the top 5 will be voted on by readers.

    @ Elliot Silver

    I’ll cross that bridge if it comes to it. :) I’m sure there’s some strong competition for crappy domain names.

    IHateElliotsBlog HEHE

    ElliotsBlogSucks.com

    This has nothing to do with my email…just wondered why no one thought of it yet :).

    Actually this might qualify as a “best” domain eheheh

    February 28th, 2011 at 4:04 pm

    I would like to submit:

    TALEBANISTAN.COM

    Sorry, but I really did hand reg. it!

    @ Elliot

    SO?

    The TWIST will be that you are going turn it around

    and sell it for MORE as a challenge! “IS THIS SO’

    Maybe?

    February 28th, 2011 at 4:19 pm

      @ Landon

      Unlikely. Just a fun contest to say thanks for reading.

      February 28th, 2011 at 4:20 pm

    Jon

    @ Landon White

    Yup, thats how I read it. Thus why it can’t be trademarked, etc….

    February 28th, 2011 at 4:23 pm

    Elliot Silver

    @ Jon

    It can’t be trademarks because I don’t want to risk getting a UDRP or lawsuit on a fun $50 contest… sorry, thought that was obvious.

    Regarding the other thing, do you guys really think I want to spend time and effort selling a name my readers deem to be the crappiest of crappy domain names? Sounds like a lot of time for very little payoff.

    I have enough of my own names to sell to keep me busy.

    Two months ago I win this hands down with 50 different domains… Luckily I don’t have them anymore. Still have a couple stragglers in other extensions, but I don’t ***think*** I have any that can compete with these. Fun contest idea though!

    Damn…

    I thought I was a hands down winner with my “bored – nothing to do in between the playoffs and superbowl – drunk on sunday” typo hyphenated Balck-Porn.com that cost me $50 on a drop.

    But I think some of the sober hand reg’s beat me “hands (reg)” down and that is a sobering thought…

    Here it is. I only registered it because it was listed in Yahoo under a category I liked.

    Free-Dialup-ISP-Internet-Access-Provider.com

    Pretty bad domain…

    LoanShed.com

    When I regged it, I thought it was pretty cool. But come to think of it, who on earth would want to go to a shed in order to loan money?

    Yitzchok

    I’ve gotten rid of a lot of my bad names, but I still have shadelamps.com.
    Not sure if that’s really worse than singleshelf.com, but that’s the one I’ll go with…

    ChicagoPlayboy.com – Not close to my worst name but I may be getting married soon and its time to start making hard sacrifices.

    February 28th, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    ChicagoPlayboy.com – worst domain name for a soon to be married guy.

    What’s with people double posting domains? They forget they already posted? I say disqualify them all for being jackasses!

    Then again perhaps that’s why they registered such domains in the first place?
