    Saw this sitting on 45K with 12? hours to go yesterday.
    I thought it would go higher to be honest.

    Why do you think Dofo shows a higher number for registered TLDs?

    Regardless of the economy, that price still seems very low and it must have been a distress sale where the owner needed money bad and fast.

    Do people really take any notice of Estibot valuation? AugmentedReality dot com has a valuation $7100 according to Estibot, yet every human knows that is a 6 figure domain name with potential to be 7 should AR fulfil its potential.

    I can’t speak for anyone else, but I don’t take much notice of a site with 'bot' in its name and I know not many end-users will use 'Estibot'.

    As for 'uncle' everything is always worth more in hindsight, but the truth is $66k is a lot of money, I see it as a win/win for both buyer and the seller.

    Uncle is a lot stronger than 66k. My new favourite uncle us Uncle Roger Nigel Ng. I learned Indo in school realizing in asian cultures father figures are called Uncle "paman" Indo "shushu" Chinese "samchon" Korea.
