The domain name TextAlerts.com was on sale at BuyDomains.com just a week ago with a buy it now price of $250.
There were no takers.
Instead the domain name which was owned by Domainbox Limited of the UK, when it was listed at Afternic.com/BuyDomains.com, expired, dropped and went into a SnapNames.com auction where it sold on Friday for $3,505!!!
In the drop auction there were 63 people who back ordered the domain, including myself and there were 4 bidders willing to pay $1,000 or more for the domain and three willing to pay over $2,500
Here is a screenshot of the BuyDomains.com listing, guess it goes to show sometimes there are better buys at the Aftermarket houses then in the drop channel.
