Since Sedo (MLS) started forcingly and without my consent pushing my domain names at Go Daddy Auctions I have received a few offers from buyers through Go Daddy.
I have removed 2 thirds of my domains from Sedo because I don’t want them listed at Go Daddy Auctions. All my domains at Sedo have a minimum price set at 1500 USD. From the couple of
thousands of domains left at Sedo it seems that a few had gotten away and didn’t have the minimum price set. I only had 30 domains like that but the lowball scavangers at Go Daddy managed to dig one of them out and make me a staggering $78 offer for an 11 year old domain name. I would rather burn the domain before selling at this price and losing moeny! Of course my counteroffer went unanswered.
The thing is I have not received a single counteroffer from these Go Dadddy “buyers”. I believe the buyers are confused by the Go Daddy system listing all domains as being in auction.
Here is the latest email I got:
I am looking to buy a domain for my new website.
I see that this domain is up for auction in godaddy next year, but I can’t wait that long to launch my website. Is it available for sale before that?
I have seen all the other domains that I can purchase on godaddy auctions, and I believe this is a fair price for this domain.
As I have said before no sane man will make an offer for a domain that is in auction before that auction is near the end. And even if they do they certainly will not expect to get a counteroffer! Some buyers like the one above are trying to circumvent this hideous Go Daddy system that is supported and rewarded by Sedo.
