    What has been your best .CO domain sale until now?

    For me, I bought a portfolio of over 100 .CO domains and haven't sold any of it in the last 8 months.
    Looks like I am a bad .CO investor.

    Share your best .CO sale and discuss the X-factor that made the domain get that price!!

    it doesn't take a genius to note that namebio has a ton of .co sales... with new ones basically daily.
    so this is far from being a bad extension to own.. unfortunately things went into chaos afte prem pricings move from greedy co people in sept2018.

    im still keeping some of my best .co names on renewal... including a few 3L.co .... but I rarely reg new ones now.

    I did have a few .co sales in last 5 years... can't remmeber the name.. but my highest was round 3k.

    cheers

    I bought about 125-150 .CO domains ($1 each) of current and former customers and convinced them they should buy them to protect their brand.

    To date I think I sold 50 or so, most were low price $49.00 each and high price was $250. But I doubt many will renew for a second year. :-P

    It was a one-shot over the course of 6-8 months, but it worked well.

    I have about 20-30 other .CO's for sale but they only get pricing inquiries and very low offers. If I can renew cheap, I will keep all of those for 2-3 more years. The other customer related batch I will let drop off.

    thats a real good convince outbound rate at 50 out of 130 different people.. and possibiity of more still..

    i guess you did your homework before buying.

    I wont explain my process, but it was about telling them the risk and immediacy of buying the domain or sitting around and letting "scoundrels" buy it, even if there might not really be a risk or needed to be done quickly.

    Yeah, you know what I mean..... Domaining can be an ugly business.... :-P

    Hyphenated .CO. When was this?

    Ohh. I would never have registered it! What made you buy this one?

    OMG. That is huge! How did you do that? Which year?
    Outbound?

    Also, how did you price it $12,000? What made you put that tag instead of say xxxx or so?
    Why 5-figures?

    Yet, the domain is just a redirect. I guess they have A LOT of money.

    I wasn't realyl asking bout your process.

    I was saying its a spectacular success ration on outbound to hit 50 sales out of 120-150 names... possibly different people too if that's what you meant. and maybe you arne't done yet you said on that paritcular batch. so maybe you will have 100% success in the end. not bad huh?

    so thats great. but I guess if we keep our prices lower.. then our chances of outbound success double.

    cheers

    No, not in this case. Sometimes a hard sell is what makes it happen. Really hard.... :xf.wink:
    I think I am done winking in this thread.....

    @Arpit131

    I hand registered for $17.99 in 2011.

    I contacted several buyers and there were many low-high 4 figure offers from different end-users. I was actually looking for offers and the highest I received was $12,000 which I happily accepted.

    Only ever sold 4 .co but rarely bought that many.

    Dino / co (like $800 I think)
    Radish.co ($400)
    Cider.co
    Journalism.co

    Oddly enough if I remember rightly radish dropped the year after I sold it.

    Rise.co for $10,000 is my largest sale in this extension. I've sold many more in the lower four-figure range. I believe .co and .io are the best investment opportunities after .com
