    So I got incredibly lucky with a domain name. I just so happen to think of a product and I typed it in expireddomains and I saw the .net version of it. So I went to Sedo and I typed it in there looking for the .com name. The listing "Buy It Now" price was approximately $300. I looked at it 3-4 times thinking "this can't be right" because I didn't believe the price was that cheap. I thought it was an error. So i checked Afternic and individual registrars and saw the same prices (approximately). Needless to say I bought it.

    This is an exact match domain name with
    Decent search traffic (approximately 14,800 searches)
    An Estibot value of $85,000
    And signs of direct type-in traffic (people type www "keyword" com) 20 traffic

    im extremely satisfied. I just didn't understand how something like this went under the radar with all the domain tools out there.

    I cant share the actual domain name.

    Because you are new, I understand your apprehension. However, in the future, please know that there is no reason to share, and that it makes no sense to post, riddles.

    Best of luck

    Your choice, but that you will not share the most interesting part of the history makes it uninteresting to most people

    Miles away, nine out of ten chances, I can bet the OP has just wasted $300.
    My sympathy!

    So you can't share the name? Did you even get it or are you still in the transfer stage in your sedo transfer center?


    Waste of time bragging about something you can't prove lol.

    Man you guys are so negative. Im not bragging Im just sharing to share. You guys come off so angry.

    Moderator if you can, please delete this post. I regret even sharing this.

    Noone is angry, however it probably was a mistake to throw out a teaser post.

    No need for regrets. It's just there's nothing to discuss based on your post.

    yes i know the feeling. I regged a single domain in 15 different gtlds and am NOT saying what it is, and man alive some of these people r nasty if you dont spill the beans to them. its not curiosity, its so they can sling crap at u when they read it even if its bad or good domain, many domainers r a vindictive bunch sitting all day long at a pc jealous of guys like rs and fs successes. there r many decent people who actually enjoy hearing about other people success but many r ruthless and hate to see people do well. simply laugh them off, dont let some git get to you on a forum as they r simply not worth the effort, move on and get used to the abuse as its common and forget them. imo.

    I think people are curious and not jealous. How can they be jealous if they do not know what the name is. :)

    Success is in selling, not in buying. Now post the .NET or the $300 .COM or the 15 TLDs in the reported sales thread and come back to me if you don't get at least 50 likes on your post.

    There are some good deals here and there, like on the .CA thread, a member picked up RUF.ca for $90 on Sedo, which is obviously well below market.
