Afternic experiment of June 2020

Hi everyone,

As the first half of this year is completed, there were some major things happening all around the world. While reviewing my business, I can clearly say that I’d the one of the best 6 months of my domain investing career.

Today I’m very happy to share the results of June 2020 which I was eagerly waiting for the report to arrive so I can share with you all.

This is the sixth post of the Afternic experiment series after I published January, February, March, April and May results which I’m hopeful that you’ll find it interesting. Although I’d initially planned to give Afternic landers a try for 6 months period which has already ended but I’ve extended the time period of using them on long term basis with the results I’ve achieved so far using their services.

In May 2020, I mentioned that there was no sale for the first 9 days and it was more longer break in the month of June of 11 days. So on 12th day I’d my first sale of the month in the shape of MarketGrid.com for $5,000. I’d put up BIN of $5,888 but after going back and forth with the buyer, it was eventually sold for that price. This was sold via Afternic lander.

Next sale was mind blowing one and the biggest BIN sale of my life. That domain was AutoFun.com which sold for $50,000. This was purchased directly via GoDaddy.com search. One of the best sale I’ve ever had.

Third sale was ToothBar.com for $6,888. This too sold via GoDaddy search. Then there was another sale of TinaChen.com for $1,988. Sold via Afternic partner registrar.

One more sale happened which I really like it – ww.biz for $4,888 via GoDaddy search. In total I’ve 4 more .biz domains.

GmTransport.com was then sold for $4,888 via Afternic lander. And the month ended up with the sale of 40hz.com for $2,888. This too sold via GoDaddy search.

Overall the cost of those domains were under $5,000 and total sale amount was $76,540. Also in May there were some 650 inquiries whereas in June, it was a little less than 600. Bit surprising because I had added some 60+ domains in the last month.

On the other hand, I’m happy to share the sales of couple of my friends.

@JudgeMind, an experienced domain investor sold some domains via Afternic which are shared below:

Dexwise.com for $1,299
Bjx.io sold for $239
ApplePie.org for $299
ReactionCapital.com for $2,500

Another fellow domain investor, Muhammad Aamir from DotCorner was happy to share his Afternic sales of June.

KingMusic.com sold for $6,000
SharkGirl.com for $3,000
PDFKit.com for $5,500
StarFilms.com for $7,500
Bisma.com for $6,500
ThunderPay.com for $3,500

Only PDFKit.com was acquired in 2017. All others were acquired in 2002-2003 period at $8 reg fees.

I tell you, those were good old days when you could hand register plenty of great domains like Aamir did. But it doesn’t mean it was too simple. One have to have the vision, knowledge and patience which is now paying off well for this fellow investor.

I appreciate both JudgeMind and Aamir for sharing their sales and if anyone would like to add their Afternic sales in future, feel free to let me know.

I would like to give due credit to my Afternic rep and brokers, I very much appreciate their hard work and dedication they put in for making all these sales to happen.

Feel free to give your feedback no matter how good or good it is πŸ˜‰

How do your list prices compare to godaddy’s govalue prices? Do buyers use govalue as a bargaining chip if lower than your asking price?

These are some phenomenal sales. It really drives home the point that if you want to get max value for your domains, that patience is the key.

As always, kudos AbdulBasit for another spectacular month of sales, and many thanks for sharing. Your monthly sales reports are a must-read.
For your amazing sale of AutoFun.com are you able to recall the Minimum Offer amount that was displayed alongside the $50k BIN? Thanks in advance!

Congratulations,great results.
Always really admired your honest, open approach when blogging on your domain names.

One question i have, what nameservers do you use when listing names for BIN at Afternic.
Seems no matter what i try, names keep going to the lander with ” Get a price in less than 24 hours
Fill out the form below. One of our domain experts will have a price to you within 24 business hours” rather than show BIN price.

Hey, congratz on a monstrous month! I’m relatively new with just 300 domains, was just curious if you have any idea why I am getting NO inquiries whatsoever? Taking your ration in account i should be getting at least 40-50 a month, I’ve read your entire website and I believe my domains are of similar quality, should yield at least some inquiries.. Though I dont have any πŸ™ (coms – CoolestVR, LifeVaccines, HempDeal, Aristida, Datep, Buard and so on), following your example they all point to ns3/ns4 afternic and listed at Uni, Sedo and Afternic, though I’m getting no interest.… Read more »

Thanks! Your reply is truly appreciated. Those are great name on that page (not hundreds, I only see like 30, but still). I was talking about past sales during this experiment: sillis, connectfit, lemonsoul, allsan, cygnini, marketgrid, liplove, summiter, etc. – it seems like these are okayish, but not the greatest quality names, yet they still sell well. I compared my names to these, I know they are not like the highest tier, but.. comparable? (sillis – folmy, connectfit – dochotline, lemonsoul – greenylab, cygnini – cenefa, allsan – allarizona, marketgrid – beyondregular, summiter – sevengill, liplove – hempkeen). Thank… Read more »

Congrats Abdul. I love the sale of AutoFun.com because of the sold price. Also love the sale of PDFKit.com from your fellow domain investor because of the year registered & sold price. To end with, I love all your experiment and wish you more luck in the months ahead.

Loved the series. Very informative and inspiring at the same time. Fingers crossed I just moved about 700 domains last night to Afternic landers, previously on either Dan or Epik landers.

A couple questions I have for you: Do you have most of your domains at Godaddy or another registrar(s)? I noticed domains I have at Godaddy show pricing in the Godaddy Auction with BIN or make offer. While names listed on Afternic at other registers, only show make offer under Godaddy Auction listings. One thing I really like about your series was the names you sold: Most would be considered Brandable. I have around 700 names on BrandBucket and SquadHelp. 660 on BB and 61 on SH. My STR on BB around 1% while my SH is a big fat… Read more »

Congrats Abdul. Constant sales are definitely a cause of satisfaction, especially when they come together with decent cash flow. I’ve got a question about “requests”. Do you mean “Price requests” (sent by pricerequest@a…)? From my experience these mails are sent only if there is no BuyNow price set. Does it mean that you don’t list significant part of portfolio at BuyNow pricing? Or do you receive a separate report of requests from a rep, also for BuyNow priced domains for which standard price request is not sent? I’ve been constantly testing BIN and non-BIN strategy. Although BIN pricing can help… Read more »

Abdul, So I have been on the Afternic landers a week now. I have all names with BIN’s. But I am a bit apprehensive that they don’t provide traffic data. I called to see if they provide because when I drop the unique visitors or page view on my dashboard it all shows zero. The rep told me for the ns3/4 landers there is no traffic data. I will definitely give it time but it sure would be nice to be able to see your traffic or at least be able to enter a Google Analytic tag to monitor your… Read more »
