    Congrats Jonathan. Did it have a BIN?

    Once completed, do share the domain if possible. Wish you many more.

    It Was An Inbound Offer, No Advertising. J
    Actually This One Had A Make Offer As I Hadnt Yet Gone Through To Price Them Yet.
    Initial Offer Was $25. It Was A Long Negotiation; Probably 2 Hours. I Started With $888 And Came Down Twice. Ended Up At $588 And Stuck To It Even After At Least Another 5 Offers Under That Price From The Buyer.

    Rob setted up my Epik account with special NamePros prices and solved my login problem. As I know current renewal prices ($8.49 for .com) without any subscriptions are cheapest in the industry.
    He is a great person. His humility and helpfulness is an excellent example to others. Thanks a lot, @Rob Monster

    I thought I would share that I took advantage of the .co promotion to repurchase the first domain name I ever sold :xf.smile:.

    The original sale was for a trivial amount (very low $$) but as my first domain name that actually sold, it was a good feeling when I got that your domain name has sold (on NC marketplace). Anyway, I tracked it and noticed it dropped (probably was some other domainer who bought it). Now and then over the past year or so I considered picking it up again, but never did. With this great promotion I did so now own again my first ever sale name.

    Did anyone else pick up a name largely for sentimental reasons?

    Bob

    Any chance of running this offer again Rob?

    I bought 20 .CO but at Dynadot at Double the price of this offer......:xf.frown::xf.frown::banghead::banghead:

    So was only able to register 3 Domains at EPIK since came to know about this offer in last few hours of 7 Day Window! (This was my first ever purchase on epik)

    Would be great if you could run the offer again for just 2 to 3 days & make the announcement on NP......:xf.smile::xf.smile::xf.smile:

    It is not as good as Epik's great .co deal, but I see that NameSilo have them this week at $1.74 (or $1.64 if you belong to their discount club).

    I am not sure we can get another .CO flash sale but we'll look into it.

    It looks like perhaps from this Wednesday we can light up $0.99 .CO again. Waiting for the official confirmation.

    In the meantime, we did get a deal on .TOP, unlimited .TOP for $0.99. There seem to be a lot of worthwhile domains available. I tested three random keywords and mostly available. Example:

    Bulk search here:

    As usual all domains comes with SEO-friendly SSL-secured parking landers with unique SSL. These work really well and look like this:

    https://laptopcomputers.com/

    People are getting verified/legitimate 5 and 6 figure inbound offers through these landers. Some further improvements to these landers are coming in part thanks to some great feedback from NamePros members.

    The .TOP Sales Look At Bit Fishy On NameBio. I Cant Think Of Another Reliable Source For Previous Sales.

    The aftermarket for .CO is probably much stronger than .TOP and .XYZ. We can agree there. However, all 3 are short and generic gTLDs run by professional organizations with marketing resources behind them.

    Good offer, but after selling none of them, I'm dropping almost all my .co's, and .co registry made all of them premium and I can't buy them back. Previously I bought them for reg fee. .co is like .tv. Lots of fake sales, and domainers and endusers are "scammed" in different ways by the registry, and domainers can't make money from them. But if you can find an ok keyword which was not made premium by the registry yet while .co is still "popular" this offer will help. The loveletter.co sale price is 3 times the asking price for phonemarket.com: crazy. If .co is really popular, then it makes sense to renew good domains, because dropping and buying back may cost a lot more than renewing for several years. In summary what I mean, this offer is great, but many more .co's were turned into premium by .co registry and can't even be purchased at previous regular prices.

    Good news.

    We'll have a one-day flash sale all day Wednesday for .CO for $1.00 starting Wednesday at 00:00 GMT, which is today at 5 pm PT, 8 pm ET. It will run through all of Wednesday. So, about 36 hours.

    The NamePros community is getting the heads-up here. From Thursday onwards through July 24, the .CO will be $1.99, all-inclusive promoted through a mailing to all Epik customers.

    The reason for $1.00 and not $0.99 is that the registry did not like the optics of being under $1. The reality is that we were taking a loss because we believe very much in the .CO aftermarket.

    Good luck to all.

    And we are live with a $0.99 promo. The promo ends Thursday morning at 10 am ET, 7 am PT, and will then be $1.99 for the next 5 days. Our NamePros friends get the first bite of a juicy .CO apple.

    I have requested @estibot.com to produce a list of .TOP domains that were previously registered but currently unregistered. We did this for .CO and it was very helpful. People need inspiration. Brainstorming domains is too time-consuming. When dealing with $0.99 names, it is a numbers game -- if you register 1000 of them for $990 and sell one of them for $1000, you are ahead of the game. The math works, but only if you don't have to spend 100 hours to fund the 1000 worthy names. That's why I like to provide the lists.
