    I am sure that refers to the sale of IPO.com ($500K) - payment installment #4.

    The domain ipo-installment4.com was just regged today, and obviously has no value.

    Brad I think you are right,
    because pay such price for hyphen domain with number is madness.

    I think that was an error I believe, can't remember the details but I read it on one of the forums...


    Could be wrong though?

    I am pretty sure it was some mistake. Look at creation date

    Agreed.

    ...Reminds us - yet again - that all the stats in the world don't mean a thing if a domain name says what a buyer wants it to say...


    I still say that brandables (many with little natural traffic) are often worth a lot more than many domainers realise....

    That domain was regged the day this post was made. Clearly it is referring to the sale of IPO.com ($500K) - payment installment #4.

    Brad, I'm not talking about the ipo-installment reference....lol


    ...I'm referring to Venga's reference to the other sales the OP mentioned in his opening post...

    If he wants 100K for the hyphen version, how much will the person who regged the un-hyphenated version want? A million $? Both were regged same day, different names, but both from India. Must have been buddies making a death pact. They didn't KNOW it was a death pact, but if they keep spending their hard-earned rupees on names like this, they're gonna starve fast.

    P.S. looks like a lot of people were fooled by the report; pretty much every major domain forum and some blogs are listing this as a 100K sale of ipo-installment4.com. And they're all correcting things afterward. Ha. Maybe regging the name wasn't such a bad idea, if the owner was making a little money off parking from this sudden rush of semi-interested visitors... but the page isn't even parked for the owner, it's auto-parked with their host (hostmonster) making any click earnings.

    I agree. I think calling them stupid was a little harsh. They saw an opportunity and took it.

    What kind of opportunity did they see? the "domainame" was reported sold, they looked for other extensions to reg. and than probably got wet between the legs when they saw that the .com(reported sold)was available...at least i would have started to wonder...so maybe not stupid but they where fooled by greed lol but it can happen to anyone, right :)

    Cheers

    I'd call it stupidity personally, I think line needs to be drawn somewhere and they are well over it thinking they are going to make money registering that.

    Maybe not stupid for regging the name if they parked it, but stupid for regging it, not parking it, and expecting $100k for it.

    misguided is the phrase I would go with. who is more "stupid" the guy who thinks he sees a 100 dollar bill on the ground and picks it up. Or the guy who wonders if that was a hundred dollars he just walked over?
