The story of acquiring .com and migrating from supertokens.io

When we went to buy the supertokens.com domain, we were greeted by a $5,000 price tag from the domain squatter. This sucked. We hadn’t raised any money and didn’t want to spend $5,000 on something that may not work out (we’d made that mistake).

So, we went and bought supertokens.io from a domain registrar for the low price of $60 for 2 years and from then on, the name SuperTokens was final.

To test the waters, we sent in a $1,000 offer to the domain squatter for the .com. It was 80% less than the asking price, but we hoped for the best (and also negotiation 101).

We got a response back that night with a counteroffer of $3,500 – which was great! Reasonable, and a feel-good discount. Unfortunately, that was still too hefty for us. At that time, we let the bid lapse and went back to building our product.

I don't know why do you refer to this domainer as a domain squatter :(

They always call us squatters and are always cheap even when they have the funds. They got a good deal.

How can I cite an "(external) article" + not being accused of something I didn't do?

Seriously ... people are using NPs as their cry pillow and making an accusation without DD.

Thank you for sharing, but you should make it a little clearer next time that this is an article. I thought this was your story as many here did. Consider format like bolding the title, and hyperlink it with source at the top.

SuperTokens/com for $8k was a sweet deal, even in 2021. They should’ve thanked the seller.

Domain squatter? Really? .com is registered 4 years earlier than .io!

The whole world seems to have taken this approach since the pandemic

People were defaulting to the .com of our name when searching for us.

This! ☝🏽

They got lucky on that one. Probably all the better that they consulted a professional, unlike the other guy. But still decided to take their chances at lowering the price, against the pro's advice. I wonder if they have any luck left.
