@Daryl, I have lots of 1 word .co.za domains. I believe you are brokering one of my .co.za domain :)

Not really, because that wouldn’t be a sunk cost. The name has significant value.

If it was a deal at $3500 you can’t go too wrong adding a grand or two over for the chance to buy it.

I usually set reminders on my phone, but it’s easy to forget to do that. I’m not sure if reminders are a feature in Protrada (which I haven’t tried and am not affiliated with), but it would be a great service to provide. NJ should look into this. With GD, at least you have the benefit of a “watch list” and outbid notices, although sometimes there’s a lag with those.

I hope you grab some other name very soon. I actually have reminders set on my iPhone for each auction ending time. It reminds me 5 minutes before the end of the auction. Some outbid emails go to my spam email, so I don’t rely on email at all.

I get notified via my phone and computer – helps tremendously.

I usually set up my iphone clock and i did but i was in the middle of an e’mail which captured me ,by the time i remembered it was gone.

I have no need to give excuses. To me, it’s just another name I would like to have owned but didn’t. It was lost revenue for NameJet, because even if I didn’t win, it would have meant a higher result.

I think it has to do with our online commerce, being Proudly South African, the companies that are online here, either just have the .co.za or have both the .com and .co.za however the .com redirects to the co.za.

As the saying goes–if you really want it , you will do whatever it takes to get the domain…even not going to the bathroom–that what diapers are for.

On some days, I am bidding on 10 names and it’s pretty consistent. It would be annoying to do that every day.

I guess it might be annoying to receive 10 emails a day, too. I suppose if I could check off a box to request an email on the names I really want, it might be beneficial.

Well, Elliot- aren’t you glad you lost , money saved!!

If they won’t add it, consider using your smart phone and the calendar feature.

Com is king due to familiarity in the mind of the people throughout many countries. I think this factor mainly makes a difference in TLD value across the board.

@Elliot I don’t think there is a question that the domain is a nice catch at $3500. Domains like this can draw great traffic and attention if developed right. It taps into the travel market nicely.

Thanks for reading my blog. I would guess that 99% of my portfolio is .com. I don’t really own many/any ccTLD names, aside from a few .CO.

I think that’s really cool that you would of paid such a price tag for the domain VisitSouthAfrica.com. I live in South Africa and I am a domainer, I frequent your blog and learn with every post, not only learn though I field test it and try the tips what you suggest however also tweak them to suit me. I have sold 2 co.za of combine value of $4,000 so far and I am now brokering domains. What I would like to ask from you sir is, do you own any co.za domains?

Viva South Africa!
