    As long as you feel positive after the sale, its worth mentioning. They all cant be $xxxx sales and every sale makes you want to work harder and get more domains.... :xf.smile:

    not really.. if the domain sold for cheap when it was actually worth 5 times or more of the sales price, then you are essentially devaluing the market because of a hasty decision or small quick profit..

    probaby worth $2000 - 3500 buddy... sometimes it's worth holding for 1-2 years and getting 10 times the amount.. that was a great name

    I'll definitely learn a lesson from this. I'm a relatively new domainer with quite a small portfolio, so sales don't come very often, and $350 is money in the bank that can churn out new and hopefulley better names.
    P.s I wanted to research the buyer, but that isn't that easy if they don't contact you by email or something similar. On undeveloped you only get their username when they make an inquiry

    Exactly. Don't beat yourself up over this low sale, you did good, you got a real sale, so many domainers never make one. Move on to the next one with knowledge from this sale.

    Well...for such a good name this sold really cheap. You should set your default starting offer to $500+ for your good names, and learn to hold longer.

    That's one more reason for you to not use undeveloped.com's landing pages. use efty or bodis or above.com

    I agree that you should have sat on it for a while.. and wait for offers or set higher bin price.. if you believed it could fetch more down the road.

    sometimes past sales will not guarantee future sales though. it happens often enough.

    personally I'd not have paid it $300. some will agree, some will not.

    but perhaps if you auction it, and add 250$ in list fees, and still end up with $500 final price.. it could go more toward showing its value is currently very far from the 10k it once sold for.

    but even then, doesn't mean some enduser down the line, who needs this specific name, would not pay thousands for it. via buynow or makeoffer.. which I assume is how it sold for 10k in 2012.

    I think lesson to learn from this for me at least would be to not always rely on past sales when buying a name again.

    I was not sure whether I should put it in news or in domain sales, but I have uncovered prices for 5 of the 6 sales in the package of .news names announced last month. They sold for $19,166 each, registry sale from Donuts to WebSeed. The details, including how I found the unannounced prices, are in this link:

    https://www.namepros.com/threads/prices-for-news-domains-in-webseed-package-deal-uncovered.1094561/

    The names were science, food, health, medicine, pollution, climate and cancer all in the .news extension. I was not able to confirm the price of medicine, but all of the others were within a dollar of each other.

    Sounds like a speculator wasting their money.

    Well it is not a domain speculator, all of the sites are fully operational and purchased by an end user. However, with the questionable authority of the information on them it is not obvious to me that they will attract significant traffic and make economic sense, so in that I agree paying this much was speculative.

    How did you know that 3L.biz sells? I've seen these in auction here and they go unbidded.

    if you check sales.. 3l.biz does not really sell. and my sale does nothing to change those poor overall selling averages of 3l.biz... I just liked the letters in this one. but in all honesty, I would have passed right by it 100%... if it was not 1$ promo... this is definitely not the kind of stuff I'd reg for full price around $10 or so..

    there are some names you can buy or reg where potential of sale can be a bit more.. predictable.. with enough domaining experience on your side etc.. but for something like 3l.biz .. its really not predictable at all.. unless its something like big.biz top.biz... etc... but thats a whole different story....

    hope this helps.
    cheers

    it could mean that... or imo it means the shield that protects your growth.. making it bigger and stronger. I actually quite like it.. but.. as you implied... there was also a reason why it was just a relatively recent handreg... rather than a 10-20 year old name..

    Whichever way we choose to look at it, the idea is to take the guesswork out of the equation.
    When i looked for similar brands i found PestShield, DroneShield, which ironically provides protection from drones and not the other way around and there was also MyLandlordShield, which is funny coz for a sec i wanted to think that it was a service which provided protection for defaulting tenants and tips on how to dodge the landlord.haha
