    Hi,

    I create this thread to speak about multi-domains deal !

    I mean not 3 or 4 domains my friend but a minimum of +1000 domains selling the same day to the same buyer in the same deal !

    This is what we achieved on 27 Feb 2019 : we sold +3000 .Best domains to the same buyer !

    If you want, you can look at our .Best curve on ntldstat : https://www.ntldstats.com/tld/best

    So, How we did it ?

    Well first, you have to know that even if this show that all domains are registered in one day, this is almost the same long selling process that I described before on the other thread : I mean : How to sell a domain for 7 digits !

    Difference is that the deal is split in thousands of domains instead of selling one domain for a big amount.

    Why is it interesting for traders ?

    Like I said before, our selling process is always to chase the buyer before the domains.

    In this case the buyer is a large corporation in the financial industry.

    But what is even more interesting here is that instead of trying to make a big deal on just big domain, we split the deal and the amount of the deal in thousands for almost the same cumulated price that if we sold them just one name for a big amount.

    What type of deal could it be ?

    Well, for this specific deal it will be announce publicly directly by the buyer itself in few weeks (time for the buyer to communicate on its .best offer to its own customers)

    But if you make a parallel with our recent deal in the hospitality industry (I mean hotels.best/hotel.best), you can also think that for the same amount we could split the sales in thousands of domain names.

    For instance, ACCOR group in the hospitality industry has actually +5000 hotels in the world.

    So even if you consider selling just for $100 / domain to ACCOR - ex : londonhotel.best, parishotel.best, ...

    Then it's a 500K deal !

    Of course this apply also to HILTON, MARIOTT, ... in the same industry

    And this could also be replicate in many various of decentralized/local industries like real estate, ...

    Hope this help you considering also this selling alternative of splitting deal in many domains.

    Wish you all the .Best for your trades.

    So if you took that 1 deal away, you would only be at about 7,000 something regs.

    Then, why did you stop at 1 deal?

    Well in the example I took here for example : nychotel.best, ... then it will bring more organic traffic and so conversion (customers) to the buyer.

    .Best domains will help the buyer capture more traffic on generic and long tail searches related to its best hotels in this specific case : Think global / Act local !

    But of course, you have to work first on the buyer datas/specs (spends, ...) like I described earlier in another thread.

    @Cyril.Best -- I just went through the historical data of .best sales on Feb 28 2019. The domains has the below pattern

    For example:
    cafebrest.best;
    cafenimes.best;
    cafedijon.best;
    cafeparies.best;
    cafelille.best;
    caferouen.best

    If I m a buyer I will buy one root domain name such as cafe.best and use sub-domains for area specific.
    Such as:

    cafe.best
    brest.cafe.best
    nimes.cafe.best
    dijon.cafe.best
    paries.cafe.best
    lille.cafe.best
    rouen.cafe.best

    I think sub-domains is a good idea in this case rather than individual area specific domains.

    At what price 99 cents, are these names going to be used for spam?

    The proof is in the details, not the headlines!

    i don't think we'll ever get anything else from our friend here than thinly veiled .best sale pitch threads ;)

    maybe the real question is.. are they creating more good or bad taste or publicity for his extension? hmmm

    also, one cannot help but wonder why this constant need for publicity in such intense manners like our friend is doing on namepros.. if the extension is doing so well..

    hmmm... I am sure some real good answers are coming right up ;)

    Seems the original 7 figure letter-of-engagement for the hotel industry is now being touted as a 6 figure letter-of-engagement - And a multi domain deal with a financial institution. 3,000 domains at what 10cents , $1, 5, 10 ??? who knows

    I still see no flesh on the bones. I'm willing to give Cyril the benefit of the doubt but, many more posts like this will see everyone shaking their heads

    How many more of these self serving threads are you going to create? One per day?

    1. You self evidently acknowledge what you are doing as you wrote:

    "but with the hype of THE.Best social network"

    2. You create a click bait title : “how to make a 7 digit sale”, then then provide no supporting evidence. People ask you to prove it, then silence.

    Bank.best is what? Not in english, and it won't auto translate.

    The website Coin.best is what? Very confusing site- you selling best? You selling coins? or did they all sell out already? What are all the websites for?

    3. You even say “ %100 transparency”, yet in same sentence “under an NDA”, I realize english isn't your first language and that's fine, but you must very well know that statement in itself makes no sense. If you were 100% transparent, you would have the information available for anyone to review. I don't expect you to do that, but the point is "double talk" here.

    "After entering our NDA, Michael will have access to all info regarding each deal : I mean contract/invoice, proof of payment/wire and even direct access to the buyer. This is why there is for us absolutly no debate that it will show the community what we did. Like I said we are 100% transparent on all our success and even failure coz it's the best way to market our TLD."

    Contradictory isn't it?

    4. Then this "interview" with your other fellow countryman:

    http://www.circleid.com/posts/20180719_french_acquire_dot_best_new_gtld_interview_with_new_owner/


    “Cyril Fremont: Well, this number is indeed two objectives of us.

    1) First, we just launched an ICO (www.coin.best) where we started selling our crypto token in presales for $100 Million USD.”

    What is this $100 million sale? Is this true? Do you have public financial statements to back this up? Or is this some secret behind the scenes deal also.

    It's one thing to come here and promote your brand, your stuff, etc. It's another to spam it. To post hyperbole. It's free speech, sure I can simply press ignore but I never did that with anyone on this forum before.

    For someone who expresses themselves as a representative of a real company, with real assets they usually don't behave as you do. These posts look like desperation sales to me. Begging for attention.

    @NameJi

    So first, in this particular case, the buyer did not buy and reserve the domains only for its needs but also to offer .best domains + its specific added-value to its own business network.

    So in this case, domains (and not sub-domains) should be used for data/content responsibility.

    As for subdomains, it is always a subjective debate in terms of SEO.

    I saw both successfull experiences in both case. subdomains and multi-domains

    I think it's all depending of the SEO and branding strategy but also end-user/content responsibility.

    As for subdomains, I think that since the SSL is now an important part of the SEO, there is a little disadvantage in using sub-domains instead of multi-domains for building a network with SEO juice.

    But this is just based on our own subjective experience before the .best acquisition. (we had a network of 50K domains - not sub-domains)

    Hope it helps.

    Best,

    It's not hard to understand why a registry prefers to bulk sell a huge number of domain names to someone instead of just selling him only one domain name for the same amount...

    ...renewal fees are the core business of any registryyy

    @BaileyUK

    1. NDA was already sent to namepros. Could not be more trasnparent. Already explain all this process in detail in the other thread.

    2. 2 x 6 Figures deals (Fully paid) will be reveal (contract/invoice, proof of payment, direct access to buyer) as soon as namebios will countersigned our NDA.

    3. Our +3K deals will be directly announce by the financial institution. Anybody can check already the deal in our sales at the date I provided on any ngtlds stats.

    Don't say that for you Bailey, but I really start to like the scepticism, impatience and even more negativity of some people here - regarding the supporting message we are receiving each day and our daily .Best sales increasing.

    By your negativity on every thread, you guys are actually giving us more value than any .best domain buyer.

    So thank you for that : You guys are doing the .Best marketing - not us.

    Best,

    Aaaaahhhh : Do not go gentle into that good night ;)

    I could like the idea but not my plan, I will better encourage our community of end-users, traders and supporters to join the NP community - more funny.

    You even tempt me to ask other ngTLD to come and share their Best experience with you guys.

    I totally agree with you that it gives value on the renewals as a registry - not doubt on this - but it also helps to lower the upfront amount of the deal with the buyer on a first approach - even if at the end the total amount is the same.

    But for a buyer, based on our own experience - on a first approach - 1000 x $100 for instance seems different from $100.000.

    In our business case of +3000 domains, the sales cycle was 2x faster that it was with any other big deal that have done.

    So of course, it's better on renewals, it's easier on registration but it's also faster to close.

    Best,

    I thought I was being very fair in my comments, Most (If not all) members of Namepros keep their subject to one thread and then expand it as details emerge . You seem to want to post all over the place - So it certainly isn't easy in following whats going on. But then maybe that's your intention

    Hi Bailey.

    Like I said in my previous answer to your post; I did not say that specically for you and I agree that your comments were fair enough.

    Regarding my posts, there is no specific intention from my part to post in different threads. I was just thinking that as it was not same subject/debate, I should split all my posts in different threads.

    It's probably an error from my part and sorry if that hurts NPs coz I am not familiar with the usage here but honestly I did it without any specific purpose or bad intention.

    Plus, the forum allow me to create 5 or 6 threads in the same time so I was thinking it was working like that.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Best,

    CF

    Hi @OffTheMap - First, thanks for the time you spent to post your questions.

    There is a lot so pardon if i miss one point or another (in that cas don't hesitate to re-submit it to me if still not clear after this post).

    So here it is :

    How many more of these self serving threads are you going to create? One per day?

    So, first didn't know that i was limited or that my posts should be limited in time. I was thinking that my limit was just of 5 threads in the same time so as it is different subject (like I said upper), I created different threads. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    As from the self-serving, it will be hard to create a thread based on our .best experience without speaking about the experience itself.

    So I understand that for a lot of you it can seem marketing B.S, but i have to say this : if you really think it's bullsh*t, why commentng ? Why even just spend minutes or your precious time to comment on this.

    I mean, if this post is really zero value for you, so just don't waste your time with it.

    For instance, on this forum I read also on my own a lot of things that has zero value for me or that I consider as bullsh*t things - doesn't mean that I spend my time on it.

    Plus, each time I create a thread is not only to share my own experience, but also the get yours. I am surprised that each time, everybody is critizing that our marketing is too high but no one is there to share is own experience. Just sayin.

    1. You self evidently acknowledge what you are doing as you wrote: "but with the hype of THE.Best social network"

    And what ? what wrong with this ? pardon my french bu tell me coz THE.Best was selected last year by the WEB SUMMIT to be part of the Alpha program (Best startups). The project win the French Tech pitch contest. THE.Best was introduce on stage at the Namescon Las Vegas. It will be part of the NGIE program of the European Commision on the selected decentralization projects. We are actually in media roadshow and already counts +10K pre-registrations in just few days. And public opening will be done on stage at WEB SUMMIT 2019 in front of 20K people. So, probably for you it's not hype but for us it is.

    2. You create a click bait title : “how to make a 7 digit sale”, then then provide no supporting evidence. People ask you to prove it, then silence.

    First, for me creating a killer clickbait title is not a non sense. This, I agree is done 100% intentionally. Same for all our title threads, I would say. We choose killer title thread because we know it will make people interact (in both senses) that is for me the primary reason of a forum. Like I said, both opinions (love or hate) give us value and make us learn things.

    Otherwise, if you don't want people to interact with yourlself, create a blog alone I would say.

    As for the silence, it's not true, I posted on the previous thread regularly and explain that we were entering in a process to make our deals certified by namebios.

    Bank.best is what? Not in english, and it won't auto translate.

    ??? Sorry but i didn't understand your question ? Please explain.

    The website Coin.best is what? Very confusing site- you selling best? You selling coins? or did they all sell out already? What are all the websites for?

    At the beginning, of our project, we were thinking of rewarding the users of THE.Best social network not in USD or in EUR but in crypto, so we that we created our own crypto the BestCoin from Jan 2018 to July 2018.

    We did not not launch any ICO on the market because the lack of regulations first in france (It was not yet regulate in 2018) and also because we thought that it was better for us to create fist our community within THE.Best social network and then "eventually" do an ICO in 2/3 years where the market will be probably more clear.

    3. You even say “ %100 transparency”, yet in same sentence “under an NDA”, I realize english isn't your first language and that's fine, but you must very well know that statement in itself makes no sense. If you were 100% transparent, you would have the information available for anyone to review. I don't expect you to do that, but the point is "double talk" here.

    "After entering our NDA, Michael will have access to all info regarding each deal : I mean contract/invoice, proof of payment/wire and even direct access to the buyer. This is why there is for us absolutly no debate that it will show the community what we did. Like I said we are 100% transparent on all our success and even failure coz it's the best way to market our TLD."

    Contradictory isn't it?


    Absolutly not. Sorry if it was confusing for you but transparency is on our own business and strategy not on registrant informations. You should know that here in Europe all registrants datas are subjected to a strong data privacy policy with GDPR. So none is allow to communicate registrants datas without being under a NDA. This is why we asked namebios about it. And without NDA we are not authorize to communicate on our registrants infos.

    4. Then this "interview" with your other fellow countryman: http://www.circleid.com/posts/20180719_french_acquire_dot_best_new_gtld_interview_with_new_owner/

    And what's wrong here ? I did also the same ITW with alan from DNW. Explain what's wrong for you to give an ITW coz I don't get it ?

    All the .Best,

    CF
