    Hey, if you want to buy creditscore for $250k, I'll sign today ;). Be realistic is the key. I'd expect a low-mid xx,xxx end-user sale.

    casi.no is in a different league than creditsco.re. It's like comparing Major League Baseball to Little League.

    CreditScore.com sold for $1M+ in 2010. I'll sell to you at 10% today for 100k.

    To the right end user, casino could easily be valued at least low six figures.

    Vegas.com was a $100M asset to its new owner. I'm holding onto Vegas with a very conservative estimation of just 1% of the value of the .com variant.

    Thanks for the suggestion!

    Working on this, I see sales section being only as useful to people as the eyeballs we're able to get onto the site (working on that as well :))

    That's what the owner of Casi.no wants for it.

    Nice. Looking forward to a sales section. Some more suggestions if you don't mind is can you put the listings in alphabetical order? Also, can you have a "newly added" section? Great site and it's nice to see the list growing.

    I hope you get to seal the deal on it someday. Be sure to report it so it get's the #1 spot on the highest domain hack sold.

    Agreed. We're in the technology age and fortunes are made online these days. A domain is your real estate, who doesn't want a storefront in Beverly Hills. I feel the first million dollar hack could be a cryptocurrency one. coinmarketcap.com was recently purchased for $400 million.

    We were brokering Cryp.to (one of the oldest domain hacks in existence) for €1M. All bias aside it's worth this amount to the right end user.

    That hack might be the one to dethrone s.top and set the bar much higher. Good luck!

    Base off publicly available information on Namebio on domain hack sales over $5.5k the trend is going the opposite direction:

    2016 was the banner year with 20 sales, then 2017-2019 all with 6 or less sales over $5.5k.

    While I'm sure many high-end sales are covered by an NDA, I'm a realistic seller. I do get many lowball offers, for some reason espres .so

    I don't believe there is a traffic value to domain hacks this is like dealing with brands.

    It deserves more to the right end user. "Crypto" is the future.

    Guys used Goo gl for a years and became passionate about adding that e :)

    Frankly, the biggest threat for hack buyer is some crazy cctld extention administration or government they have to deal with after buying such hack. You may risk 1K but not 1M. So, technically we may believe in hacks, but in reality there is a chance more to .de .no .it etc hacks than to some African or wherever cctlds.

    The reason is, most of the sales go unreported, or covered with NDA.

    Hey!

    I'm always open to suggestions, makes me happy that other people are with me on the journey and want to see the site grow, so huge thanks to everyone who's been chipping in!

    I'm looking into the alphabetical order, and great idea about the newly added section.

    My main struggle is - I am not a coder, and I'm learning to build the website pretty much on the go - so what would probably take someone a couple of hours, can take me a hell lot longer :banghead::xf.grin:

    As it's currently a very manual effort, I am looking for ways to automate / optimise. So please bare with me

    Thanks again,

    Al

    Sorry, can you clarify further? Are you suggesting that .de .no .it extensions are likely to run into issues after registration? If so, what types of issues could occur? Also, which extensions would you recommend to domain hackers in addition to .ge?
