Today: The Number 8 in the domain industry / NameServer history for ccTLD’s / The longest you should wait for a potential buyer to respond / And more!
Here are the new discussions that caught my eye in the domain community today:
Feed.co Sold for $85,000 – Wow! You don’t see a four letter dictionary word .co ccTLD sell for a high five digits like this much. Time to get motivated!
CommercialVehicleLeasing.co.uk – This is a pretty long .co.uk second level ccTLD, but it seems very niche targeted in an industry that has high dollar product sales. Does this mean the domain has value?
Irvine.Store – I’m not sure the new gTLD .store is ready for city geo value. But then, there is definitely a market for stores in a geographical area. How much is this domain worth in today’s markets?
The longest you should wait for a potential buyer to respond – Do you have a set time-limit on how long you wait for a potential buyer to respond to you before sending a reminder message? Or do you just forget about them and never reach out again?
NameServer history for ccTLD’s – Where would one be able to gather a ccTLD domain names nameserver history from? Do the registries even offer that type of data?
The Number 8 in the domain industry – What is so special about the number eight when it comes to investing in domain names? Is it just a Chinese lucky number that drove hype into other cultures, giving it more value that it would normally have, or is it a diamond in the rough more investors should look at?
What to do when a new domain owner won’t update Whois contact information – What would you do in a situation like this where you sold a domain name and the buyer won’t change the whois ownership information to their own?
