Afternic experiment of April 2020

Hello everyone,

This is the fourth post of the Afternic experiment series after I published January, February and March results which I’m hopeful that some of my readers find it interesting.

Had total 5 sales via Afternic with total $17,826 Gross sales. I consider this a good month but at least couple of things were missing. First, there was no big sale like high 4 figures or any of 5 figures. Secondly, almost no offers came in this month which usually comes via Afternic broker.

Some of the highlights of April 2020 are as below:

There were once again very close to 600 inquiries which includes the inquiries on repeating domains as well. this time I just reached a little over 3,750 domains right at the end of April. This is to note that this was one of the slowest month in terms of acquiring domains.

2 out of 5 sales happened via Afternic cart which includes Cygnini.com for $6,000 and Rebourne.com for 5,000.

AssureRx.com sold for $2,988 and NarrativeContent.com for $950. Both these happened via GoDaddy.

Only one happened via Afternic partner registrar which was Communicator.org sold for $2,888.

Holding period of the above sold domains was from 1 to 6 years. Altogether acquisition cost for these 5 domains was under $800.

On the other hand, one of my fellow domainer friend whom I’m sure many of you know with the name of @JudgeMind at NamePros who shared his sales of April and with his permission I’m going to share it below for you guys:

Nosepod.com $299
Lumos.ca $899
Aircans.com $799

Although he had a decent last month where he sold a lot more domains in total but not that many via Afternic. Above 3 domain acquisition cost was $38 only!

Feel free to give your feedback and if you like to add your experience with Afternic, feel free to share. Also you may contact me directly if you like your results to be published in my next report post.

1. When you spot a name, what are the things you look that makes you feel it’s great name.

2. What are the tools you used to know good Keywords and brandable name?

Thanks Abdul vai for your detailed report…

I really loved the sales of cygini.com and rebourne.com .

I would love to know about sale of narrativecontent.com, is it negotiated or bin?

Do you increased your price to match the profit considering Afternic has more Commission rates than uniregistry lander.

Thanks and all the best.

Thanks for sharing details of your Afternic experiment and your overall sales for April. Encouraging to see sales happening, even if you didn’t get any high 4-figure or 5-figure sales. Best of luck for your May sales.

Thank you Abdul, you are awesome, I learn lot of things from you about domaining, you are a REAL Professional domainers.. good on you!
BTW, do you know is there any way multiple keyword can be search on expired domain in one go.
For example, I want to see what are domain expiring or deleting by ending word “club”, “hotel”, “Go” etc with .com and up to max 8 digit. When i search like this it doesnt work.
Also when I chose English dictionary keyword, it doesnt work!

Thank you so much Abdul, you are awesome! i will try to learn how to use it as per your instruction.
BTW, do you know what is the best way to Domain Backorder, I can see a domain I like isn’t renewed, it will do though drop catch process.. Probably Hugedomain or Godaddy will catch it.
Is there any way if I can register it before them through any Domaincatching software or by submitting multiple backorders in 5-6 domain registerer? Please guide us on this.

Good-Show Abdul,
Please, kindly point out 2 factors that you like best about Afternic, AND 2 factors that you like best about Sedo.

And do you recommend using brokers at those sites, over simply using their landers?
Eagerly awaiting your response.
Thank you.

Please Abdul, Allow me your mountain-top analysis on the following: About 45 DAYS AGO, I listed 87 domain names for sale with a BIN pricing, on AFTERNIC, using ns3/ns4 NAMESERVERS.
