- Does this apply only to sales that occurred here at NP?

- What if the price is 'private' between seller/buyer?

And of course, it's not required. A voluntary thing. ;)

Reported sales can be either on or off of NamePros, and if price or domain name is private than do not use this thread to report it. Participation is completely voluntary.

You can also use this thread to publicize sales that don't qualify for DNJournal's weekly top domain sales.

-RJ-, Grrilla, and I have discussed this thread for quite some time now after I suggested it a few weeks ago. We've decided that once a week (haven't decided day yet), I will make a post with all of the sales mentioned and the major ones recognized (hopefully similar to DNJournal's). Try to post all of your sales that took place during the week and if you rather not have your username mentioned, you can PM me the sale and I will just mention the domain name without your username.

We hope this thread will help people get a better idea of what kinds of names sell and help the marketplace.

-Addy
 
Remember, you can also post where you sold the domain. If it was sold at NP, please try to mention 'Sold at NP'. If elsewhere, it would help to also mention such as Sedo, Afternic, etc.

-Addy
 
This is a great idea Addy! Thanks for staying with it until it came to fruition.
I think this will be one of the more popular features here at NP. I mean, who can resist checking this out, at least, a couple of times a week?

March/Apr Sales:

RFIDEA.com $250 - Sedo (I let this go for too low a price, IMHO, but you can't win 'em all.)
1IP.Biz $100 -Sedo
Phishzilla.com $1,500 - Direct offer

SteelCube.com: $150 (on sedo)
LeadsPage: $595 (on sedo)
ExpressDialup.com: $4,000 (never advertised)
TripleAdvantage.com: $12,000 (never advertised)

Hey Geno! Congrats! Nice names, (obviously). Do you offer any sales negotiating seminars? :hehe:

Is this fair to the buyer? Or is selling a domain considered public info, like buying/selling a home?

I know, as a trader, I don't want anyone really knowing what I paid for a domain. why would a non-trader buyer think any differently?

I have one name that I didn't list, because of that concern. That's a good question.
I hope Duke passes through here and sees your question. He might have some interesting insights/perspectives as to the advantages and disadvantages of publicizing sales and why traders list sales at DNJournal.
The exchanges all list recent sales, and unless the whois is cloaked, it isn't difficult to find out or, at least surmise, who the purchaser is.

Gene, thanks for the lesson.
Question. When did the $12k sale happen? The only odd thing falling out of "major corporation" theory is that TripleAdvantage.com is still inactive. No "coming soon", no placeholder, no nothing.

It was about 4 months ago. It has never been used since it was sold. Based on the nameserver listed which is owned by Experian, I'm led to think that they may have a banking program by the name of TripleAdvantage. It's just speculation, but we'll see what becomes of it.

Update: I just did a quick Google and I believe I've found the evidence to prove my theory... Experian DOES have a product known as "TripleAdvantage". See the Google result here:

Not sure, but this might not be uncommon. I had a $xxxx++sale late last year to a major corp and just checked it and it still isn't resolving. It may be a conscious plan on the part of the marketing dept to keep it under wraps until it is ready. In my case, I am fairly sure that the company plans to make a splash w/ a new product ID and is coordinating the site opening w/ the rest of their advertising plans and release dates. (One of the reasons I have declined to go public w/ this name sale, although I'm not contractually obligated to do so.)

Oh, BTW, Gene. This is not a reflection/judgement on your decision to list your sale. Our situations are different, in that your company already has an existing product that is public. Just wanted to clarify my post.

know what you mean Mike....

A lot of it is obviously down to luck. I sold gogive dot com for $700ish (which i was clearly happy with). Same deal as Gene's post and approach "Im starting a charity site and am interested etc etc". Anyway, as if by magic, a large corp has since created a limited Co here in the UK of the same name...

Nothing resides as yet... But I did mail the guy later saying he could have the dot info for free as Enom had regged it on my behalf... But, guess what, the freemail acct he originally contacted me on now no longer exists....

I could contact the Ltd Co owners but cant be bothered now....
