    I was the only bidder at $12 until last 5 mins. Someone bid $34, so i entered $50 bid, but suddenly i kept getting "Your bid has failed" error. I kept trying until time ran out.

    Why does this happen? Ever happen to you? Somebody got a great name for dirt cheap.

    I think, the price is okay, it's only .net after all. Don't be so sad (y)

    if I knew who it was, I'd rather him an email to thank him for sparing you a worthless useless domain ;)

    Sucks when that happens. Going to be a very easy flip for the new owner if he wants to do that.

    I was actually looking to buy vinyl records a few weeks ago. They are nostalgic. I would have bidded on it.

    don't get me wrong... the .com one would be nice. worth some money to right person. despite vinyls being still more part of past than future (and this despite their present regain in popularity)..

    but imo it will be nearly impossible to sell it in .net
    for more than $50.

    I think you got lucky to be outbid.

    looks like you missed the latest news
    vinyl records are hot

    that is a very decent domain name

    but redirecting it to amazon will get your account closed
    and you will never get it reopened

    Would love to have that domain. Definitely a bargain. I'm a vinyl collector myself and this can be flipped easily for a nice profit.

    Those saying this is a crap domain don't realize that there is a huge market for vinyl these days.

    The serps and typein score for this name alone give it value. Though i wasn't in love with the name in a vane sort of way; (being .net), i saw the value it could bring.

    Anyways, this post was more about the error itself and not necessarily a discussion about the domain. I wanted to keep bidding but gd just would not allow it... that in itself was upsetting to me.

    I would have gone well beyond $50 on this name tbh.

    But .net domains are not doing too well on the aftermarket.
    How much do you think this name is really worth ? Probably nice to own but selling it for a good profit is more difficult.

    Sounds like you got auto boted based on your human intelligence bidding techniques, there is nothing you could have done different, your $50 would probably have been outbid also.

    This wasn't a flip, though I still feel it could have been an easy one.

    @briguy is redirecting a domain to a affiliates link even permitted?

    For amazon at least i think it goes against their terms.

    I've got some clients that would easily pay $400-$500 for this domain though. Would've been an easy sale.

    On topic, I've been experiencing a lot of glitches in GoDaddy's panels lately. Not during bidding in particular but still.
