    Sedo Great Auction update:

    upload_2019-12-11_8-1-33.png

    Only cash.ca has received bids. 3 bids in total with the high bid currently at $1000. Not sure what's the point of even bidding when they are so far away from the reserve.

    Probably the case, and I guess we rather see some bids than none at all. Would be nice to see a bidding war develop the last 24 hours but I doubt it'll happen.

    I wonder if the Sedo broker responsible (Brian Michitti) actively tried to find prospective buyers prior to the auction. I imagine they do for some domains they send to auction.

    I am sure this topic has been discussed before on this thread, but would be interested in hearing views on which marketplaces seem to work best for selling .ca domain names in general, or if none of them really work much. Thanks in advance.

    Afternic/GoDaddy with a BIN work the best for me.

    There is a LOT of organic traffic and it seems that many GD buyers have money burning a hole in their pockets and want to BUY IT NOW.

    I list them at Afternic, which puts them on GoDaddy.

    I would agree with GoDaddy/Afternic. Most of my domains sell there even though they were parked at Sedo, and I'm starting to lose confidence in Sedo because of it. I've almost always used Sedo (because i always thought they were the best) only to realize I've never closed a sale there. I've received a bunch of low-ball offers, but that's it. Why am I still parking there? I dunno...

    I'm sure it also depends on the name and extension. If you have an ultra-premium LLL.com, then that could probably sell anywhere... but if you're trying to sell a mediocre LLL.ca domain at a somewhat low price, then your chances are probably better at Godaddy. I say that because I think Canadians (especially endusers unfamiliar with domains) will trust buying from Godaddy before other venues.

    Do you park any of your domains at Afternic/GD? I list everything at afternic too but haven't ever really tried parking there until very recently. So far i've only parked three domains there, just to play around a bit (visit bongsonline .ca , for example). That parked page comes with ads but I'm pretty sure there's a way to make it where it's just a sales lander where visitors can request a price. I think you need to use GD dns for that but haven't gotten around to figuring it out yet.

    Anyway, I'm asking myself why I don't park at GD/afternic if that's where all the action is happening. The 20% commission sucks, but so does not making any sales.

    I also think Uniregistry is working it's way up... at least with big ticket names being brokered there.

    But do you have your DNS pointed so someone who guesses the name ends up at the Afternic / GD listing, or does it point somewhere else? Thanks in advance.

    I never Park my domains anywhere (too dangerous to give them control, plus it makes hit stats useless due to Bot traffic) and when it comes to GoDaddy/Afternic/Sedo/Dan, etc. I always Forward the domain to a sales page, usually at Sedo.

    Like:
    https://sedo.com/search/details/?domain=DOMAIN.com

    That way I retain control, and as it forwards to a generated page (as opposed to a Parked page) the Traffic stats are valid and I don't get Bots.

    Weird day at the TBR races - I got outbid on 2 I really wanted but then some people must have cancelled bids because I ended up being the high bidder of one I didn't really want and was previously overbid on.

    Is it even possible to cancel bids once they are placed? Maybe the registrar was bidding against you and decided to back out lol

    I believe it is allowed at some places, with enough notice or else the bidder was a deadbeat who jacked them last week.

    No joke, and it's the old NamesPro Hail Mary, which works about once every month.

    If this was caught by myid, it would have gone to about $3K or higher.

    FYI - I was transferring out some domains and I found that Sibername had set the EXACT SAME AUTH CODE for all my domains there AGAIN. Even though I told them about the issue before... what was it a couple months ago?? So I sent their support a message again. Let's see if they care about the security of their customer's domains yet??? Frankly, I think that's an unbelievable and dangerous security flaw.

    Anyone else want to check their auth codes at sibername and see if they're all the same? If you do, check a few of your most recent domains in your account.

    That’s really sad, funny someone mentioned myid would sell for 5x the price, you would think active investors multi backorder, why would it yield more there, just curious?
