I am getting a lot of .us domain name offers lately. They started coming the week before the 4th of July and they keep coming until today.
I have gotten 7 offers for .us domains in 9 days (5 days before the 4th of July and 3 days after the 4th).
I sold the domain sheffield.us to a startup from Miami, Florida. I got the inquiry on the 5th of July, we agreed on the 6th and the domain was paid for at Escrow.com and transferred to the buyer’s registrar by the 7th.
I have also gotten 2 other offers for up to $1,000 but no other sales yet.
Not sure if this burst was caused by the 4th of July or it is just a coincidence. It could be a coincidence as offers are coming from Europe too. Most are from startups that don’t have a big budget.
BTW I have freedom.us for sale this week for $4,500.
