Think I spent 1k on a name once. Then 500 bucks and below. Pretty rare I spend more than 80 bucks.

Still have the 1k name. Never had an offer on it lol but ah well easy come easy go.

125k on expireddomains.com :) Building the best domaining site (slowly).

Wow, I'm a huge fan of .net for many many years, I think it is still the best and won't be easy to beat, yet I'm wishing you the best for making an even better platform. That's how the industry will be progressing further and further.

As for what's the most I've spent on a domain name. Never more than $500, although I bidded more than $3k on names I couldn't win a number of times. Funny enough made the most money with hand regged domains.

A fellow hungarian : )

Most spent on a domain for personal use/vanity, resale or development?

Edit:

I missed it in your OP. For development, close to 100K.

hopefully the site caters only to end users and not to domainers, unless you are doing this for a hobby and are charitable. The end user market for this is untapped and can be extremely profitable, not to mention, less work to develop.

David....thanks for chiming in......if i need a plumber, i'm calling you:xf.wink: However if you charge for travel and travel time I'm not sure I can afford you:ROFL:

I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to do with RedSoloCupz.com (note the z represents the actual letter in the domain that I bought). I just knew I really liked the name and what it meant to me.....there I go again, it's all about me:xf.cry: Seriously though, Toby Keith died of stomach cancer at 62 years young and I'm now thinking of developing a site where the purchase of "Red Solo Cups" for your party or personal use will go to a cure for cancer.

Huge Domains actually financed it for me and I pay just $200 (zero interest) a month to them for 12 months. While I may not have paid $2,400 all at once for it I may not have bought it, but the zero interest financing over 12 months hooked me(y)

I've sold domains on payment plan before but never really considered buying that way. Would have to be the right name I guess. Good luck with your purchase.

$2000, sold a domain and immediately flipped the money into a much, much better domain. Takes money to make money 🤪

Not sure if you realize, but "Solo" is a brand of cup. It's their trademark.

Best of luck with the domain.

Most I have spent on a domain is reg fee. Sold my first name for £5,000 in 2000. Got on CNN news!

Thanks Brad....did you look that up just for me:unsure: While it's intended use is to bring attention to "stomach cancer" that Toby Keith died from, whoever owns the TM might just want to be involved in some capacity? What do you think?

So what's the most you ever paid for a domain Brad and what did you do with it?

The most in the last couple months was $15K+ for a two word .COM.

I tend to be frugal and cheapO_o. I am pretty sure the most I have paid is for a few in the $60 to $80 range.

Too much :xf.grin:

But I must admit any domain I paid over 10 K for got acquired with nice ROI
I still have some domains I paid between 5K and 10 K that haven't been sold, with many not market value offers

Thanks Bob....i'll have to say I'm pretty much an impulse buyer. I'm pretty Patriotic despite loving Canada like I do. When Toby Keith (country singer made famous for his Patriotic songs) died of stomach cancer earlier this week, i just wanted to do something.

Thanks again Bob.

Most I ever paid was ~$15,000 for a LLL .com a few years back. Spent $10k or more on several domains. All have been sold. Made the most profit from domains I spent $regfee to $3k on.

Years ago I paid $10 each for these 4l domains and I think I paid too much
I am still angry at myself to this minute that I paid too much ....
Very disappointed in myself that I am taking drugs and alcohol to drown my sorrow. I even call the domain suicide hotline....

wzwi.com
zmmr.com
Vhvk.com
Kvlp.com
Gxnx.com

I even bought squarely.com for $11
