    Lol was it an idn? Man I swear that one was either one of those "smartbuys" or well you know.

    It was advertised on here. Congrats on the seller though. Good hustle!

    Renew sell for $600 to any future cafe or auction.

    Market it as the perfect name for a cafe. Probably worth $2500 retail.

    I was going to say similar except I think your valuation is low.

    Regrettable purchases
    Pretty much anything I've purchased with a bottle of Whisky to hand, All are an absolute embarrassment to own. Thankfully I don't do it very often and rarely drink. Which is probably why I lose my sense of reasoning

    I love that Huge Domains is asking $1895 for “Find A Bus Siness”. GoDaddy appraises it at $1150. Must be a good domain after all. :xf.wink:

    Funny thing is, I almost made this exact same mistake today on a similar domain. Lucky I noticed before I purchased!

    It didn't trick them.. hugedomains just do not have a much good taste when it comes to picking domain names...

    In the early days (1996/1997) I once registered a domain name with three consecutive hyphens. :wideyed:

    99 cent domains were my first pitfall because they were "cheap" Also mixing letters and numbers

    Sometimes technology screws you up. I hate this dang auto correct feature on my mac. Maybe great when typing letters, but sure does suck entering in domains. I have had it more than once change what I entered. A couple of time I didn't catch it and reg some complete trash. :(

    within my first 24 hours as a domain junkie

    ChaoticNuetral.com
    ...
    Nuetral
    ...
    yea i spelled it wrong when i typed it in and panic bought when i saw it was available lol
    luckily i realized right away and got a refund from godaddy

    edit: oh also during this panic purchase i ended up spending $40 on it instead of 10 because it auto selected the more expensive package.. it was an all around mess of a day

    Didn’t figure that Jeep was a trademarked name.
    Thought it could work for a Jeep repair shop
