    In this week's Top Topics, an investor shares the news that they have achieved $100,000 in sales at Flippa, beating their target of achieving that milestone by the end of 2018. Elsewhere, an investor gets blocked after attempting to perform outbound sales via Facebook and a poll asks whether major auction houses are trusted.

    I Tried To Sell a Domain: I Got Blocked

    After buying an expired domain name, this investor set about trying to find an end user. Interestingly, they look to have chosen Facebook Messenger to send their outbound sales messages. Having exchanged a couple of messages, one of the end users blocked this investor.

    What did the domainer do wrong? The messages are available to read in this discussion, so you can have your say.

    What Do You Look For in a Domain Registrar?

    For a domain investor, there are many choices when it comes to domain name registrars. Traditionally popular registrars include GoDaddy, NameCheap, and eNom, with investors such as @Frank.Schilling creating domainer-centric registrars like Uniregistry in recent years.

    With the number of registrars available, every investor may have their own preferred registrar for varying reasons. Here, you can share what you think is the most important factor for a registrar to retain your business.

    Poll: Do You Trust Major Auction Houses?

    In recent weeks, there have been several reports from domain auction platforms that some sales have not been completed. A recent example is the Dispute.com domain name that initially sold for $65,000 at GoDaddy auctions before the winning bidder defaulted.

    In this poll, TheDomains.com's Managing Editor Raymond Hackney asks the community whether major auction houses are currently trusted. View the discussion to vote.
