I bought the domain name WithoutBorders.com yesterday in an auction at DropCatch.com.
The domain name dropped and has a 2018 registration date. Yes, domains still drop these days!
The domain was originally registered in 1999 according to DomainTools.com. It then dropped in 2003 and was owned by a domainer up until 2008.
From then on the domain seems to have had 2 different owners and the last one didn’t renew it this year.
The domain was registered with blacknight.com, an Irish registrar, that apparently doesn’t send expired domains to auction but instead lets them go through the normal expiry cycle.
So the domain dropped and dropcatch caught it and I won the auction for $2,405.
I really like this domain and I believe I paid a fair wholesale price. I would have paid a bit more for it.
I think the auction price would have been at least twice that if it was at GoDaddy auctions.
I also own the domain WorldWithoutBorders.com for 10 years or so.
What do you think of this purchase?
