    I will be the first to admit that I have bought some really bad names in the past - really bad. I will not renew them and many have fallen off.

    Who is your target? Stop buying garbage and start putting your money into something that will sell. I get lists of names daily from people wanting me to buy their junk and I don't think they realize its junk.

    How do you know if your name is garbage:
    • Would you buy it?
    • Who is the end user?
    • What will an end user do with the name?
    If you cant answer those questions you have garbage - here is my latest list from a user:
    BestBuyout.com
    BlacksGifts.com
    FashionAreas.com
    HairFail.com
    InsuranceDebts.com
    InsuranceEstate.com
    MorePins.com
    ReviewMotors.com
    ShopYart.com

    Just because 2 names have a meaning alone doesn't mean it has a real value slapped together.

    Who is the end user for these names? What domainer would buy these names?

    Just my opinion - think about who is going to buy what you are regsitering

    Insurance debts is a usable name. There are some schemes to help people who are in arrears with their national insurance payments for example.. Advice on those could be useful.

    Why would you list domains privately shared with you?

    If you want to show examples of junk names, take that from your own portfolio and show people, what not to buy.

    Isn't that a fair thing to do?

    Yes - Do you know who shared them with me - no you don't
    Do people share sales? Sure they do. Should they stop doing that because someone sold them the name?
    So sick of negative people. If you have an issue with something someone posted hit that little ignore button and keep moving

    How much would you pay for that? Who would you target as an end user and for how much?
    These are the questions I ask myself

    it seems like a neutral question and a valid one to ask.

    are posters to your threads going to be automatically characterized as "negative people", when you don't like what they have to say?

    because
    in your initial paragraph you state:

    so, based on that , it's was reasonable question

    why shame another domainers names, when you have opportunity to shame yourself first.


    imo....

    Ah - great question.
    • I did shame myself
    • When I ask for domains to buy with clear instructions why send me garbage?
    • If you send me names unsolicited why send me garbage?
    • If you read what I posted you will see I am attempting to help people make better decisions.

    Just 2 months ago you were asking peoples what to do with your domains and selling your top portofolio( including hatred.com) for less than what you paid for and now your the pro here giving advice. And yes, this is common sense, if somebody it's talking to you in private you should not replicate without his consent, you are part of a community and you should act accordingly. I have made 12 end users sales and close to 300 to resellers just in 2017( it's true, xxx and xxxx sales), why do you think you're the one that should be giving advices?

    I'm a re-seller and not an end user, so I wouldn't pay much. :)

    The customer is more of a problem. Obviously a debt counselling service could use it, but they would probably expect me to donate it. :)

    If everyone would like to turn this into a thread of why I hate uglydork lets do it! I thrive on controversy, you are only pumping my brand more and more. No press is bad press, my business continues to grow.

    It is called recycling process. Reducing hazardous names and converting into new ... sustainable & profitable. It's hard to accept but learning is the process of learning through personal experience.

    right :)

    You should use common sense, not be blinded by your great sale. Two months ago you were a poor domainer because you could not sale your names for more than what you paid and now all of the sudden your a top domainer. Believe me, it's not working like this, you have the same knowledge like two months ago, what you have now extra it's just a little more arrogance and more cash in your bank account, these will not make you better in any way. You should prove yourself that you are better first and try selling your other names for 2-5-25 times more than what you have paid for and when you get tens-hundreds sales you can start teaching peoples what to do with their names. In the end you could just get yourself banned by admin's for creating conflicts and promoting hate in a friendly community.

    I've just been reading another forum, and there is a guy there asking $6,000+ for each of these names.

    • ICOinvestor.com
    • ICOcentral.com
    • Ecoinomi.com
    • Ecoinomy.ca

    So you think I had no sales until I sold hatred.com?
    I use everything I can to make a sale including posting here - end users - auctions- I have been doing this for years - you are not very smart if you think I just started on this business.
    I don't start controversy- people like you do that. I didn't ask you to start ripping me - go back to your thousands in sales and I will go back to mine- geesh

    Common mistakes from newbies:
    - Add two words together ex: funfuneral
    - Add a letter to a a word ex: BadBoyy
    - Trade Mark Names
    - Buy something real cheap - Cheap Names are not Good and Good Names are not Cheap. They need to spend more for a quality name rather than own 100 names which worth nothing.

    I see hate on your side buddy.

    I give advices as well yet I have zero sales so far.

    What does it tells you? I am a bad investor?

    Think twice :whistle:

    Stop this hatred because of all the jealousy you have. He made a sale so why do you go back and give past examples about his career? Everybody can have bad times, every body, including you!

    I am okay to see his examples cause it gives me an idea what he is talking about.

    Back to OP`s question, I am only targeting end users!

    Part of what are you saying it's true, but not all. For example ',Makkeup' ( extra letter) I sold it over 500 times than what I paid for in less than 5 months. Monitoringg( extra letter) I have received an offer on flippa 400 times than what I have paid for in less than 7 hours after acquiring it. It's nothing bad if you can replicate that over and over. It's like saying that if you sell expensive cars for double the money it's a good business but if you sell 1$ items which you have paid 10c it's not a good business ( what 1$ shops are making)

    How can you give somebody an advice if I don't know yourself how it's done. It's like teaching somebody how to swim, staying on the shore because you can't swim. It's not about bad times, it's about winning a lottery ticket and that acting like your the top business man. When you are trying to sell a name loosing money and after 1 months you get lucky and sell it for much more, this is not knowledge, it's just luck. You are asking 1 month before, exactly the same peoples to whom you want to give them an advice today, how you should sale your names an to who, and after 1 month your acting like you know everything now.

    Heh, okay.. but you have got to change your avatar pix accordingly. The current one doesn't fit the controversial persona you're striving for! :xf.wink:
    I think you're missing the whole point here. I read this thread more like a subtle warning, by example, to all those sending @uglydork unsolicited garbage. Plus his trying to promote himself and his business, that, too, of course.

    As for @uglydork's arrogance, well, that comes with the territory... making an $150,000 sale and getting interviewed will do that to you.:xf.cool:

    I am an investor, I do and own businesses in different industries.

    We all invest on names and brands right?

    It is not about luck, it is about marketing. Right time right person right pricing.
