Hey everyone, i'm just a rookie. I started investing in Domain late - 2017, so i just have a small portfolio ( about 400 domains). Recently, i realized that it's too hard to buy a good name now. Why ? 1> GoDaddy Expired Auctions : as you know, HugeDomains gets 40% -50% good domains, 20-30% will belong to big players ( who has big pocket - huge capital to burn), and the rest belong to us. You can see some names below with their prices. ensureit.com $175 searchmind.com $295 deyde.com $215 ablepower.com $425 aceadvisory.com $117 innovacenter.com $120 bellecreative.com $127 crownalliance.com $127 corptex.com $273 2> Dropped List : nowaday, we can't find many high quality domain names on dropped list because of the increasing of Drop Catching systems. - With individual domainers: they prefer to pay 59$-79$ for the name that they think it good enough than wait and reg it on Dropped List. - With Domain Companies: they have their own Registers, so that they can catch expired names quickly. And the rest in Dropped list almost are junks. 3> Auctions : people now become crazy in bidding war. They are willing to pay more and more money for a name that has bids despite its quality. If you want to get a good one, you must pay more 30-40% than before. Domain's price now is crazy. So what do you think ?
