Tip to check unlimited FREE valuation from Estibot.com

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

I’m never a fan of using ANY automated valuation site including Estibot. But since many domainers especially newbies check this site for valuation and as we all know Estibot allows 1 free appraisal per IP in 24 hours.

Anyone using Uniregistry Market can utilize this feature but is limited to inquiries you receives. At least, that’s what I’m aware of and not sure if there is any way you can check for all the domains which are under your account at Uniregistry Market.

Simply login to your Unregistry Market account, Inbox, open any inquiry. Click on the “Settings icon” as marked in snapshot below.

 

You will see a different options in that box which shows several options. One of which is EstiBot valuation for your domain.

I highly don’t recommend anyone to depend on ANY valuation tools including Estibot which in my opinion is total worthless. But my purpose of sharing is to check for fun in case you have some extra time to see what this crappy tool valuates your domain 😀

Feel free to share your feedback and if someone knows a way to get free valuation for all domains in your Uniregistry account, kindly share in comment section for others to know.

Several more domain purchases of 2017

Hello and Asslamo Alaikum,

I think the last acquisitions post was made in February 2017 so I thought it’s the time to share once again.

Beginning of this month, I now have hit the mark of 1,500 domains in my portfolio.

Usually I share only few domain purchases and try to post those which gives clear idea of what type of names I acquire and this may help others in understanding. This doesn’t mean one should start buying similar type of names and you should be doing your own research as everyone has their own budget, knowledge, skills, ideas and luck, etc.

I have had a little success in selling .CO domains for profit and I always like to buy 1 word .CO names and 3L .CO which are good to invest IMO. So this year I got several of them which are listed below.

Renovations.CO, Craze.CO, Courtney.CO, Lynch.CO – Got 1 word .CO names which I think are good to have.

COK.CO, NOI.CO, LUS.CO, LOR.CO, TAY.CO, TEZ.CO, MDN.CO – These type of combinations are selling for low-mid 4 figures range and I think they are good to invest. But prepare to hold them for long time as they are not 3L .coms 😉

FoodShopping.com – Online food/grocery store.

BeExtreme.com – Adventure/sports loving, an aggressive and positive tagline.

LookAround.com – I love to invest in such highly brandable domain which can be used for multipurpose. You just name it. Thanks to Jamie Zoch (DotWeekly) for helping in acquiring this domain.

TheWater.com – Again a domain which can be used for many different niches and not only a water supply/bottle, aqua related company. And again thanks to Jamie for the same above reason 🙂

Cryptyc.com – Crypto related company.

BornToSparkle.com, BornToImpress.com, BornToInnovate.com – Long shot names.

ChallengersGroup.com – Sensible group names always does well. Although singular would have been better.

SHST.com, AGFF.com, OZHT.com, CMNZ.com – Can’t live without buying 4L .com domains even though I know they are slow to sell 😀

Feel free to comment and/or share your recent acquisitions.

A tip to increase commission at Uniregistry

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

It’s been some time since I last posted but with holidays I took a break from postings as well. But that doesn’t mean I stopped domaining 😀 I was actively buying domains, though at a slow speed because the prices have gone as well as need to sell domains in order to have the cash flow for buying more domains. As with most domainers, the summer period is slow as people are on holidays. August can be a tough one because many of the corporate purchasing teams have vacations.

Coming back to the topic… I recently sold a domain using Uniregistry lander and asked buyer if he is willing to take the domain at Uniregistry. He wasn’t willing to take at first but eventually took it there by creating an account. What I did was to provide him my Uniregistry affiliate link to open his Uniregistry account. Once he did and took the domain there, I’ll be paid commission on every renewals/registrations/transfers he make into his account until he uses that account actively.

Next time when you sell a domain when the domain is registered with Uniregistry, make sure to ask if the buyer wants the domain there itself. Not only you will make a bit of commission, but also the domain transfer will be completed in no time and you’ll get your funds much quickly.

You won’t make a fortune here but it’s better to make something than nothing at all. And if you’re a frequent seller, you could bring in many buyers to keep their domains with Uniregistry and you will make additional $$ as bonus.

Why you should renew domains for longer period

Hello and Assalamo Alaikum,

I always try to keep almost all if not all of my domains renewed for at least 1 year in advance. If someone checks my portfolio, one can see start expiring from beginning of 2018. There are several reasons I would like to share.

As in everyone’s portfolio, most of the domains are of low and medium quality compare to high one’s and so is with my portfolio. I tend to renew all those domains for 1-2 years period in advance which in my opinion fits under low to medium quality. As of today I am proud to have 1,400 domains ALHUMDULLILAH and growing and have a target to reach 1,550 by the end of this year which seems quite achievable.

For high quality domains, I always try to renew them for 5 years and plus. Suppose if you check GRO.com expiration date, you will find it’s 15th August 2026. VIND.com in 2026 and Trattoria.com in 2025.

One of the main reason is such quality of domains don’t sell quickly at the price level I usually sell unless I start flipping which is not what I do since many years.

Another reason why I renew my best names for years in advance so that any buyer seeing the expiration date which is 6-10 years extended from today will make them realize the name isn’t going to drop anytime soon and it’s better to make a serious offer if they are serious enough for that domain name. So anyone thinking the name GRO.com is going to drop and get available for buying cheap can keep dreaming as it won’t be available in that manner.

As Verisign increases the domain price every year, it’s better to renew in advance to stop paying those extra cents which actually converts into $$$ when you have hundreds and thousands of domain names. Because when you have hundreds of domains to renew and you get the news of price increase next month can put you under pressure of gathering additional funds just for renewal which might be sometimes a burden.

For someone who is flipping domains, renewing the domain for additional years doesn’t make sense.

Feel free to give your feedback and would like to add any more reasons to renew domains for longer period.

*EDIT* As Adam mentioned that Verisign will not increase the price for at least next few years so I take my above words back. It’s good news for domain owners especially domainers. Thanks Adam!
