So we did something last week that TheDomains had never done in it’s 9 year existence. We let the readers take over and tell everyone what their best name was and how much they wanted for it.
People had the opportunity to post their true thoughts without worry about being bashed. I probably deleted/did not approve 30 comments, which was on the light side, I expected more, especially considering the amount of traffic the post generated for a number of days.
First off, thank you to everyone who took time out of their weekend to read TheDomains and post their best domain name here.
Now there were some great names posted, there were some good names posted, and to be fair there were some that make you wonder when you couple the name with the price expectations.
Some were not posting their best but their favorite, that’s understandable.
Some were looking for attention or trying to be funny, at least I hope so, because there were a couple $1billion plus asking prices. Call me crazy but I don’t think GirlYou.Sexy will receive an offer close to the $100 billion asking price.
The gems that were posted included Harbor.com for $500,000 + from Andrew Rosener.
FX posted Medical.com and StockMarket.com which are obviously seven figure domains.
AMR posted Profile.com looking for a seven figure price.
Ralph posted TelevisionShows.com for $50,000.
Some of the new gtlds posted included:
There were certainly some names that the owners felt passionately about. They saw a vision for the domain and that has influenced their asking price. That vision may only be shared by the domain owner, they might need to think about becoming the end user or lowering their price expectations if they are seeing 0 offers anywhere remotely close to their asking price.
Here is a look at the 147 names listed, if there was a buy it now price that’s included.
TelevisionShows.com – $50k
mоbсаr (dоt) соm $5 – $9k
Harbor.com 500,000 or more
Bodypartinsurance.com 5M usd , but could negotiate for less.
MAE.COM $150k – $200K net of any brokerage, price valid for seven days
EmailAddresses.com: low-to-mid 6-figures (closer to mid than low)
Replied.to + 3 other tld’s of the same word.
brandname.com, which is priced at $288,800
GirlYou.Sexy One Hundred Billion Dollars
