    Let’s all be honest and admit a few things...

    1. We want to price domains as high as possible.

    2. We want to try to acquire domains as cheap as possible.

    This is business 2.0. Good luck all!

    Actually Keith, it's (sung to the tune The Gambler)

    You've got to know when to hold 'em
    Know when to fold 'em
    Know when to walk away
    And know when to run
    You never count your money
    When you're sittin' at the table
    There'll be time enough for countin'
    When the dealin's done
    :xf.wink:

    Accept with domains you can buy back in for an entire year for the bargain price of $10. Worth the risk if you’ve done your homework.

    I rarely ever drop domains after the first year, except those I bought when I was drunk. :xf.grin:

    Honestly just seems like a thread to whine, while I do sit and laugh when I see domains being set at such a high value - it does no harm.

    Problem can be overcome if a “Verified Sellers” section was added, and only certain members could create a thread, others can only comment. Then you’d get people wanting to be sensible so they can get access and post a decent price.

    Plus we’re all here to want a good price for the domains we treasure (because I damn do), and hearing about other domain sales makes you wonder “why won’t mine?”.

    Many tend to get in love with their own names, almost as if they were their children. :xf.wink: This makes them overrate the value of their names.

    Personally, I have no other income than from domains and web development, so I have to balance it up between maximize profit and being realistic. This is a pretty hard task.

    I think that ridiculous prices on domains listed publicly (i.e. outside NPs) do hurt the industry as a whole. I think occasionally an end user starts searching, comes across a few ridiculous prices, assume that most will be that order and simply gives up finding the best hand registration for their startup or business/organization. It would be tough, but the marketplaces could if they wanted to put the resources into it have an approval process for prices, sort of like some brand sites do.

    I realize domain name pricing is not an exact science, and some find it a good strategy to start very high, but I think truly crazy pricing hurts us all.

    imo its everyones decision and right to ask whatever they want for their names...and its everyones right to use the ignore list as they see fit

    in this way everyone can be satisified

    Agreed, I just laugh at them and wondered if I am alone or not in that respect.

    Feel free not to contribute then (y)

    Although, I see your points and agree to an extent, I tend to take the opposite approach. The publicly listed prices in the stratosphere emphasize that there is limited supply to end users. I feel this can fuel demand, and ultimately liquidity, for more moderate, fair, and realistic pricing structures.

    Million dollar+ asking prices + endless bumps = "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results." :cautious:

    I almost jokingly priced a name I paid $40 for here on NP and listed it on GoDaddy for $1600 thinking no one would ever actually go for it. It sold in about 3 months for the full $1600 of which I actually got about $1100 of. It baffled me someone would pay that much for such a name.

    The part of me that wants to help members kicks in once in a while and I try to offer a little bit of guidance but in this case I have to agree with you, sometimes it's a futile effort.

    To all, how many bumps do you think you should use before you say to yourself "enough is enough"? :xf.rolleyes:

    The problem was not extension, but his toptoptoptoptop....endless domain names.
    You want to tell he sold sold them?
    So where is he?
    I am sure if he would sell them, he would come here to report report his sales.

    @kingoftop?
    @illuminatydomains?
    What was his name? Who remember?
