    I went there, nice lander. Been a stagnant page for a while now according to archive.org

    Don't see any past sales at namebio, can you show link with this highest sale.

    Personally I would take weed,com or bud,com long beore pot,com for personal use

    I like Vsex. That's a nice name. When theire's a sale on renewals put 5 years on it. You won't regret it.

    dtagr your right, even if the domain has 8 months left on it if you have the $$ you can save a pile in the long run for sure... it's just that $$ up front lol.

    1bc.ca
    xmj.ca
    pnz.ca

    are all still available too i just added 1v1.ca to my list as well

    thats nice. where was the offer made?

    I am afraid to get greedy on .ca domains.
    when I sold jobleads...ca for $1000 that was his frist offer.. though he did take care to say he can't go higher.. didn't mean it was true.. either way... i didn't wanna take chances.. but I guess you're braver than me when comes to .ca hahahah

    so this was like a... handreg to you recently or what?

    It was a drop I had actively pursued and I think it has a pretty obvious potential in the same category as timmy.

    I can see it now.... visit us at timmy.ca..... not complete without timy.ca for spelling and hashtags etc

    There is a reason I had the inquiry.

    PS. Came via my lander

    alrighty then. im the scared one, so don't take it the wrong way.. but i'd be real happy with 4 figures on that one too. just as my jobleads.

    hope you get your 5 figures on it one day

    to me.. 5 figures for .ca domains is very cool dictionary one words.. like.. you know. chat.ca..... super.ca... and a whole big bunch of other ones.

    cheers

    I offered 20k to two people for two different 3 letter .ca's and was turned down both times.

    CAD funds not USD of course

    Both people were very smart to turn me down, why do you think I offered 20k?

    I am actively pursuing those domains as we speak and if I get any one of them I will post back.

    hmmm... well.. don't pay much attnetion to me... im not so brave with .ca

    5 figures .ca domain to me.. has to be a very nice dictionary word.

    but your right there could be some very nice prooucable things in 3L too... worth 5 figures.. even if not ditionary words (or were they?)... just don't pay 5 figures for klp.ca :)

    cheers

    Some personal thoughts..
    Even though, I have a few domains on page one for a few keywords, ebay.ca is a hard place to sell domains , (do get visits to my non-ebay pages)!

    Made a mistake using "business card' on my .namespro.ca Domain setting, getting a lot of "time wasters" calls on my cellphone, changed to their "domain for sale"option..

    For those who regularly participate in the TBR, which drop-catching service provider do you prefer?

    Cheers!

    I use canspace.ca for 59 bucks per and has a good success rate

    That said a lot of times I cross my fingers and just wait for the drop at reg fee :xf.grin:

    Is there an auction/bidding mechanism in place in the event that numerous people bid on the same domain (e.g. NameJet) or is it a blind bid?

    Thank you for making me aware of that service!

    Is there any way to see the historical success rate of each registrar in catching domains? Or, put differently, has anyone had more success with one over another?

    Thanks again!

    MYID.ca seems to be at or near the top of the leaderboard for backorders.
    Sibername is ok.
    Namespro is ok if you are willing to pay to get their attention.

    Pool.com is an option. I have used them a few times. Once succesfully for a .ca long time ago
    Recently they were beat twice by dropcatch on my backorders
    They refund quick on missed orders.
    Not sure how others work, but they debit your card immediately after placing order.
    Custumer support number is in Canada, facebook page says they have office here, I remember calling and talking to customer service once.
