Nope. I always increased price. The more I increase the price, the faster they sell

This started at $750.

In the last year I doubled or tripled my prices on all domains except clearance. And I plan to increase further.

I never make assumptions and test everything. Assumptions will eat you. Fixed ideas over time become wrong.
Thank you for this valuable input

Time and time again we see so many sales right after we hold for 1 year.

How many sales we all have lost due to dumping a name after one year, we will never know...

True.

I tend to no longer dump .coms after 1 year except if I am 100% sure they are wrong reg. It's a bad mistake.

Usually in the first couple months after renewal a ton will sell. I don't do this wilth all domains but only with single-words and .coms.

Reason is, there's always someone waiting for it to expire. But then when they see you renewed it, they give up hope and many will put the money on the table cause there's no point to wait anymore.

how many visits you had for this name?
I don't know exactly, but i'd say it averaged just 5-10 a month over the 4 years I had it. I can see why people would look for domains with high type-in traffic, but in the case of business names and given how google search works now, I don't see lack of type-in as an indicator of much.

Did you start at $750 and increase it once or twice or were you increasing periodically with smaller increments?

good for u.

one cant help but wonder if without afternic bin network this would be happening too. thoughts?

Yes it does, across any marketplace (Dan, Sedo etc) or even TLD. Afternic just provides me with better conversions. ( More info in this new post i already mentioned above)

GPU//deals.com (sold in April)
Free//Vaccines.org (my first covid-19 related sale, sold in May)
Glamping//spot.com (sold in April)
xl///defi.com (sold 30 minutes ago)
n/f/t/r/o.com (my first NFT sale...I think it undersold, also sold 30 minutes ago)

All sold for $101 each via Afternic fast transfer. Handreg 6-9 months ago at Dynadot for 10 bucks.

It's not much but it will give me capital to renew my other domain names.
Which nameservers do you use?
