Daily Domain Sales (2-27-2015): RedRoom.com $5,050, HomeGenie.com $3,138

dailyI totally forgot to put the Go Daddy auction results into the report yesterday (damn Saturday nights), so GoDaddy has a double report today one after the other.

I sold 4 domains this past week. 2 of them are paid already and I am sure that the 3rd will get paid also. Not sure about the 4th one. I sold 2 new gtlds, $2,5k and $10k(- a 20% fee), creator.us for $2k and a .info for $4,5k. I guess you can make money with any extension. I also declined a $10k offer on a .com.

Take a look at My Domain Name Purchases In 2014 (Part 2).

Daily Domain Sales (2-25-2015): Sell.org $20,000, Mafia.it 2,900 EUR

dailyPlease somebody help me get what this domain is all about: asia-pacific-connections.com. It was in an auction at Go Daddy and final bid was $76 but the reserve was not met. It was probably an expired domain with some links but why do people auction such names? No one knows how much traffic and revenue your domain name has. They just look at the auction and think it is junk.

I sold 4 domains this past week. 2 of them are paid already and I am sure that the 3rd will get paid also. Not sure about the 4th one. I sold 2 new gtlds, $2,5k and $10k(-20%), a .us for $2k and a .info for $4,5k. I guess you can make money with any extension. I also declined a $10k offer on a .com.
