Start backordering .org domains with Pheenix.com

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

There is some news to share with you guys about Pheenix.com

In past we could place backorders for .com/.net/.tv/.cc domains at Pheenix but now you can place backorders for any .org domains as well. This is great addition to their system as the cost for .org is $24.95 if you are the only bidder.

Secondly, they are working on new drop catch system which will increase the catches and that system will be operational soon.

I knew something was going on internally at Pheenix because these days I am seeing they are unable to grab single .com domain but I am still adding domains for backordering. Cannot take risk of not placing BO as I am not sure when they start catching domains again ;)

However, in past Pheenix used to beat all big boys in drop catching service. Now it’s clear that something is coming up which hopefully will be better than before.

Now a days all good domains are caught by auction houses which are doing public or private auction and among all I like Pheenix better because I see less competition out here compare to all other auction houses.

On a side note, I have won some good domains through Pheenix and I am quite happy to own those domains.

Hope this helps and have a great day!

Feel free to share your feedback and tell us whether any of you tried backordering .org domains and what was the result.

 

My recent domain acquisitions including LLL.com

My-recent-domain-acquisitions-including-LLL.comHello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Yesterday Konstantinos shared some more domain purchases which he made in 2014 and one must check those names as what type of domains to acquire. That may help you in building your own quality portfolio. Below are some of the names I recently acquired:

GRO.com – I think it took too long to acquire LLL.com but finally I did it.

ACFA.com – I used to like LLLL.com but now I must start loving LLLL domains after the sale of BMGL.com ;)

EaMedia.com – Almost paid 1k for this name and once the auction was over, I thought I paid little more than I initially set budget for this domain. However, I feel this can pay off well if I hold the domain for quite some time.

FilaBrasileiro.com – Will leave this one up to you to decide whether this acquisition was good or bad. It’s a dog breed and some developed sites but what impressed me was 60,500 exact searches at Google Keyword Planner.

TheNewton.com – I love “the” word domains.

TheRestless.com – Same as above.

AboveBeyond.com – To me this is a decent brandable domain which can be used for many different purposes. Got for just under 1k.

Nieuwenhuis.com – I love person names. Quite difficult name to spell :D

Stephane.net – Isn’t this a common name with this spelling too. Although it’s a .net but I still like it.

Papandrea.com – Not as difficult spelling as the couple of above names.


Would love to have your feedback and feel free to share the domains which you recently acquired.

Thank you for your business DomainNameSales.com

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

Recently I closed a sale at DomainNameSales.com with the help of a broker and I was impressed to see the creativity used by the DNS team.

Once the domain sale was over, the broker sent the below image to the buyer followed with some best wishes for this new acquisition. I really liked the idea and thought to share this with you. This can be helpful in making some more sales with the same buyer and to show good gesture.

DomainNameSales.com_thankyou_message

“I wanted to take a moment to thank you sincerely for your recent purchase of domainname123.com.
As a company, we hope that we provided you with the best service and that your new domain name brings you much success.”

I always like to keep in touch with the sellers from whom I buy domains privately as there is always a chance of striking another deal with that person in future. Once you have bought the domain privately, don’t just think it’s done and dusted. Try to keep in touch and you never know what’s new opportunity is coming your way.

How do you think about this idea?
