The core concept is to move domain “liquidation” out of the forums and into a simple, easy to use platform with domain quality control and price control.

The platform is purposely exclusive to domain investors so that you can keep wholesale and retail prices completely separate at the same time. Example: Gamers (.co) Lander/Afternic - $20,000. DNWE - $1,285.

Sellers are charged 9% with all associated fees baked into the price.

One thing I'd suggest if at first you don't succeed, wait then try again. I had a name I tried submitting in the past and while it was accepted only at $299, which I wasn't willing to accept. After waiting some time I resubmitted and got it approved this time at 599, and just got the email today, less than a week after listing, that it sold.

Still see lots of inconsistencies though. For example I had several 4L .coms rejected when I try to list them at 299 but I see approved 4L's at 299 and even 399 that have equally as bad letter combinations, if not worse.

We get hundreds of submissions that are MANUALLY reviewed every single day by @jstenn13 - You’re getting free appraisals from someone that owns some of the best names in the industry and knows the wholesale market VERY well.

Anyone who feels a decision is unjust, I would suggest posting the name in this thread and the price you submitted it for. For now we’ll take another look at all submissions IF they wish to appeal them inside this thread (must be visible to all).

We’ve made a few exceptions in the past and the names never sell but we continue to go above and beyond to cater to as many people as we can. When evaluating domains it’s obviously somewhat subjective but also massively based on data which most people don’t really look at.

We’ll continue to base our curation on wholesale data and commercial application which has resulted in extremely high sell through rates with dozens of well regarded buyers and sellers using the platform actively on a daily basis.
I submitted about 10 domains and all were rejected saying those do not merit even $99. Once domain was rejected with the reason that it does not merit $500 I listed for. I want to relist the same domain for lesser price, however the DNWE platform does not allow me to do the same. It says the domain is already existing. I sent 3 mails to the support at dnwe dot com asking them to delete that domain so that I can relist the same domain for lesser price, however there are no replies at all from the Support, even after several days Strange! Hence I am reporting it here!

Currently there are only 36 curated domains available on DNWE. You should market DNWE better, for example here on Namepros.

Who is active on DNWE here? Do you think it's worth the monthly subscription fee?

I’m active, and the fee was worth it for me, liquidated a bunch of names in the first month or two, and also picked up a couple of decent deals. But I’ve been logging in less and less, and I’m disappointed in the direction it’s taking - more and more worthless names at crazy prices, difficult to sift through and find any value, and very very few curated names.

I purchased 2 domains on DNWE during the period while the membership was free and there was only commission. Then I didn't subscribe when they introduced the membership fee. But I have subscribed to DNWE recently, I hope that I will be able to buy some domains.

I am interested in the curated section, since it's a big help for me that those names are vetted. But there are not enough curated domains, please add more, market DNWE better. Because otherwise the concept is great: being able to buy domains at wholesale rates for a fixed price instantly, and the curated section is also a unique innovation.

I've managed to buy a great domain on DNWE this month for $104.21 (= $99 + DAN fee).

@jstenn13 please consider returning to the commission only model. I stopped using DNWE, but I would use it again without the fixed monthly fee. Just use the old commission-based model, that was better.

DNWE seems like a pretty platform for its relevant audience of buyers and sellers. I have yet to see some more customer reviews and liquidation success attestations before trying out the $15 subscription - although I'd definitely check out the website if it it reintroduced a free trial period. (feel free to update me if that happens, founder Josh!)

I listed 47 names in the last couple of weeks.

Sold one.

Last year, that would have been 2-5, at least.

As far as the number of listed names at DNWE:
— Dutch auctions section = 0 names
— Total names = 944 (of which 46 are mine lol). It used to be in thousands.

I listed like 6 2 months ago and sold 2. It's semi-dead but can still generate sales

Pretty much anything can generate sales under certain conditions.

Update: liquidated four more names since I posted this. Mid $$$ to low $$$$. Not bad at all.

I keep signing up for a month or two then cancelling it when I realize how much spam and how little curation there is. I bought one ok name this month but haven’t sold one since March, though previously I had managed to liquidate some decent names there. But this year I keep getting a sense that every time I log in all I see is spammy random .xyzs and ridiculous asking prices on brandables. Probably won’t renew again. 🤷‍♂️

I bought a year subscription that I let end. There definitely are sales happening, and it is another place to buy and to sell. I sold 6 domain names there over the year of my subscription. 1 .com, 1 .org, 1 .cloud and 3 .vc.

I debated signing up for another year, but decided not to invest the money in the subscription. I am pretty frugal about subscriptions in general. I wanted to mainly focus on retail sales, and when I want to sell wholesale found I had other alternatives, including here on NamePros.

The DNWE integration with Dan for payment and payout worked very smoothly. Pretty well always names transfer and you get paid within 24 hr.

One feature I liked with DNWE is that names you buy or sell are not reported. That is good for wholesale, and you can keep names listed on retail marketplaces while they are on DNWE. DNWE allow search by various metrics, like age or GD appraisal value. In the latter months I had a subscription it seemed to designate only a few names for the curated collection, mainly .com. I would have preferred more curated names.

The GD valuation number had a glitch, and often gave $0 when that was not right, especially for non-legacy extensions. Not sure if that had an impact on names searched, as some use that as a filter.

If I was doing much wholesale buying and selling I would have kept a subscription.

I'm thinking to end my subscription there. A lot of garbage names lately, with crazy prices.

It isn't worth it, the owners should switch back to the old, commission-only model. Then I would use the platform again (no fixed fee, only commission).

Yes, I would have continued to use it from time to time if it was back on a commission model.

I will not be renewing my subscription.

The Two Joshes don't care about the platform anymore.

Anyone still using DNWE?
I am. I sold 26 domains there in 2022 ranging from $99-$1200. Bought 4 for $99-$1000. Overall, despite some issues, I love DNWE. I hope the Joshes will keep it up and running and devote more attention to it.
