At last I got today an inquiry by someone that understands the value of domains. No, I didn’t make a sale. But at least they didn’t try to devalue my domain or make a bullshit $100 offer.

My domain is a 2-word .com that was registered in 1995. Many similar domains like .net, .org, .biz, the hyphen equivalents, and various ccTLDs are all taken for years.

I send the potential buyer a quote and then asked for an offer. I got this message:

I’m not in your range. But thanks. I’ll go a different route. It’s a great domain. Save it for the larger $$$.

At least someone understands that domains have value and that you pick a domain depending on your budget. You don’t ask the seller to adjust to your budget when your budget is 1/100 of the domain price.

I say this to a few of the rude and cheap potential buyers:
No, I didn’t register this domain 15 years ago just to hold it until you came. And no, I don’t need you to take the domain off my hands, so you can help me save on renewals!”

  1. Yes I do recall a couple years ago a low $XXX offer on a fashion-related .TV domain where the buyer commented about me having to pay renewals for several years but was ticked I wouldn’t accept his price because it was just going to be a hobby site.
