    I've made sales before but this one was pretty much luck.

    I registered this one thinking if I can't register guardianDrones.com then why not pull out the thesaurus and find synonyms for "Guardian"

    Many combined with +Drones.com were taken.

    Except for Paladin so gave it a try.

    I believed that potential for Drones for security purposes.

    PaladinDrones.io is developed. It's a company developing drones to help firefighters.

    Best part is they when they Y-combinator which has churned out companies like AirBNB and others.

    Probably could have sat on it an ask for more but needed the money.

    Good luck to the new owner. I think it's a reseller.

    Edit: somebody does own PaladinDrone.com

    Also the .net and .org are available if anyone is feeling like investing.

    Please note these guys probably NOW have an unregistered or registered trademark for PaladinDrones

    Inbound via Efty.

    The buyer is probably over here. I suspect it's a fellow domainer. I had asked the usual $10k wait about a week an half. Got it for negotiated down to $7,500 or he offered it.

    It was a broker.

    The thing is I had reached out to the main company to pitch it to. Guy told me not interested and take me off your mailing list.

    So I don't know if he bought it and felt he needed to use a broker?

    I dunno. Wire cleared via EscrowDomains.

    Thanks to EscrowDomains by the way.

    You shouldn't feel like your left money on the table, because if you did, you would have probably need to wait a few more years for a couple more k$ in my opinion.

    This is a fantastic sale! when did you register it?

    and of course, congrats!!

    Thanks. 2016? I know whoever bought it plans to sit on it once the company goes big like AirBNB. I know already since the domain resolves no where. I'm sure he or she is probably reading this right now!

    I mean this company did go thru the YCombinator program and any startup that goes thru their process almost always ends up like as big as AirBNB. There are more companies that went thru Y Combinator. If anyone can look into that feel free to share.

    So I guess whoever bought it is like "investing" in PaladinDrones prior to it ever becoming AirBNB.

    I mean imagine if AirBNB sat it's startup in AirBNB.io? then became huge? how much would you charge AirBNB for AirBNB.com? especially if you paid $7,500?

    hey if they can pull it off. then that will probably be the next reported sale on here about PaladinDrones.com

    either way. made my money off it and I'm not going to cut my heart out with a spoon if it sold for $250,000.

    well........maybe not at first! lol

    yup. and all you need now is a good updated Thesaurus.

    So what's the process of getting this info verified over at Namebio? You know I have a couple sales via Godaddy that never got reported to Namebio. Doesn't Godaddy automatically report sales to Namebio? or does that only happen when it's an auction sale?

    like my

    WhoaTime.com $5,000
    360Sand.com $8,000

    Just contact namebio @Michael and he can help you out! yes I think only Expired Auctions and certain Sales get auto reported, not sure how that works.

    yea I think the CEO of the company is an RPG geek lol. which explains the Paladin usage in his company name.

    Paladin is good choice for his drone company since a Paladin is a "savior" and their drones are designed to assist Firefighters with getting to fires to assess the situation prior to their arrival and maybe help with providing life saving medical help.

    The thing is too. They are not just doing that. They plan to use their drones also to help cops on the streets chase down the baddies. Very Cool.

    maybe I shouldn't have sold? lol jk jk.

    PaladinDrones.net
    PaladinDrones.org

    any takers?:xf.grin:

    I'm staying away since like I said PaladinDrones.io is an established business already. PaladinDrones.com on the other hand was registered prior to PaladinDrones.io going "live".
