How to get a price and a discount for a domain name owned by NameFind (GoDaddy)

I visited a domain name owned by NameFind LLC, a GoDaddy company, to get a price for it.

At the top it read: “The domain animalrights.org is for sale. To purchase, call Afternic.com at +1 781-373-6847 or 855-201-2286. Click here for more details.”

I clicked on “Click here for more details.” and was redirected to an Afternic webpage that said:

animalrights.org is for sale!

I then visited Afternic.com typed the domain name into the search box and a ‘buy now’ price came up instantly. So you can buy the domain name without waiting, or talking on the phone or filling out the form and waiting to get a price quote.

If you go to GoDaddy.com and type in the domain name in the search form you will also get the buy now price and will be able to purchase the domain name right away. But it won’t give you the option to negotiate a lower price.

  1. I can confirm that prices are VERY negotiable. E.g. an $8k asking price went down to $4500 within 24 hours. No room for tire kickers, however. 😉

  2. Haven’t bought a domain on Afternic since the pre-GD days but back then it was common knowledge that 40% off list was an automatic sale. Below that would trigger a counteroffer. Of course it was easy to tell the house domains since they ended in 88, that doesn’t appear to have changed.

    Would be curious if anyone out there can confirm from experience if the 40% threshold is still in effect.
