Sold another .com domain in four figures

Hello everyone,

It was a nice last week. I am sure you have understood why I am saying this after reading the post title 😉 bought in 2010 for the total cost so far was US$44.45 and sold it last week for US$2,990 through Afternic BIN. So the return on investment was 6626.66% which looks good yeah. I bought this domain through GoDaddy Auctions.

I first received price request at Afternic for this domain in January this year. I set the price and forgot about it. So I am not sure if the person who requested price was the buyer this time. It’s over 3 months so it’s quite difficult to gauge.

Until now the WHOIS is showing on GoDaddy TDNAM Holding with Administrative contact of “Buyer Unreachable”. I am not sure who have bought this domain. I will update this post once I see any changes to the WHOIS.

What’s your feedback on this sale? Sold for right price or left money on table?

    very nice sale. congrats 🙂

    afternic pays via wire , paypal masspay ?

      Thanks Chandan

      I haven’t used their PayPal Masspay service. I received through wire. After deducting 15% commission they charged extra $35 as wire fee. They must have included this in their heft commission.

      Still I don’t mind… The service was excellent and transaction was completed swiftly.

    Nice one Abdul.I think the price is ok and you made some profit but I don’t know if other big time domainers would have asked for more than you sold it for.I see others selling for more though.

    Good to read from you again.

    Meik, Thanks for your input. I appreciate it. That’s true. Not sure what big boys would have asked for. It’s loan related name but wasn’t getting much type-in or making any money from parking. So personally I thought was good price but still wanted to knew from you and others. Thanks once again 🙂

    Mark, thanks very much 🙂

    Congratulations man. You really rock. I am almost becoming a regular reader of your blog. I wish you good luck and best wishes in your good endeavors.

    BTW, the domain you sold, was it listed as “featured” or as a a normal listing?

    Good day,

    • AbdulBasit says:

      Thanks for the compliment 🙂

      No, it wasn’t listed as featured listing. Was a normal listing. I don’t think I have ever tried featured listing with Afternic. I always try to sell domains on my own rather than going through Afternic/Sedo. I don’t list any new domains with them. In short, why pay 15% commission to them when I can sell directly 😉

      Thanks and best of luck 🙂
