DNWE made some big changes a few days ago to its marketplace and the domain name submission flow to both curated and non-curated domains for sale.
Here are all the changes:
Now there’s only one single marketplace and all domains, both Curated and Non-Curated, show up in the same place.
Curated domains: Bold font and a gold icon next to them.
Curated filter: Toggle it on to only see Curated domains.
One Submission Flow
Now all domains can be listed on the marketplace right away without any delays or without needing to wait for them to be reviewed. The submission process is now less confusing and much quicker for all levels of domains!
We’re still going to be curating the best domains and deals but just doing it differently now, in a more time-friendly manner for everyone. Here’s how the new curation process works:
Step 1) Domains are submitted by sellers and immediately listed on the marketplace. All new listings are Non-Curated by default.
Step 2) The DNWE team will periodically look through all the live domain listings and if we see something we feel is good enough quality to be Curated and also priced at or close to wholesale, we’ll tag it as such.
To get more specific, if we like a domain and its wholesale price we’ll tag it as Curated and it’ll become so right away. If we like a domain but feel the price is too high to be considered wholesale we’ll tag it as Curated but suggest a lower price and then give the seller the option of either accepting the move to Curated at the reduced price or keeping the name as Non-Curated at its current price.
If we tag one of your domains as Curated you’ll be notified immediately via email so you’re aware of the great news!
Benefits of your domain becoming Curated:
Increased visibility due to bold font, gold icon, showing up when the curated filter is toggled on, and notification emails sent out to buyers.
Sell Section Changes
Now there are just two domain lists in your Sell section, Active Domains and Expired Listings.
Please note, if a Non-Curated domain is pending your approval to become Curated at a reduced price you’ll see a notification by the domain in your Active Domains list that says “Curated Approval Required”. Clicking on that text will open a small popup window with more details.
You have to pay to get listed?
why….when there are so many free platforms.
What other platforms charge 0% sales commission?
For what a carbon copy of namepros listings?
Shame on DNwe for taking all subscription fees
And abandoning the site with no listings, and a flood of user listed fm
Violations etc of garbage, and now just pooling it all together to make it look like they even curate anything.
Perdon me but I found them pompous and out of line to think they can tell me what my domains are worth. I listed 2 domain with them in October looking for sub $12k-18k or something and they rejected them. Put my own landing pages on one and sold it this March for 33 Ether. The other, a 6 letter domain starting with NFT is losing (W-9 Form/layer pending) for well over 130K.
Now I know we all get desperate every now and then and we list domains cheap and all. But if you spend sometime in the metaverse, which all of you domainers should, you will be amazed how much digital real estate sales for. IMHO, metaverses don’t bring brands all the benefits of the internet like domains names do. But being there and hanging in those circles wakes you up to the fact that domain names should command much HIGHER prices than they are currently doing.
You can deduce the same reasoning when you see current housing prices. So what is the reason why anyone, outside the potential buyer, should decide what your domain is worth? Perhaps they are going to charge you fees? Perhaps you didn’t listen to the Domain King, Konstantinos and others? Perhaps you I should repeat that don’t know that there is probably 2 reasons your domain isn’t selling;
1. It’s a bad name (you don’t know if its not, apply yourself and learn)
2. You haven’t hit the demand curve.(domains are longtime investments)
And that is just it. Now before you run list your domain on DNWE and other pay sites that promise you sales galore, try this.
1. Put all your domains on Godaddy aftermarket and sit back. (I like having 2 godaddy account/personal email and professional email depending on values I assign to domain)
2. Go to HostGator or any inexpensive hosting company and get yourself a shared hosting plan (No more that $15 a month) which allows you to deploy unlimited sites from their templates. Use the templates as landing pages and add “I accept Ether and Bitcoin as payment”. I shouldn’t have to tell you that you need to add a convenient contact method preferably WhatsApp, iMessage and my favorite 1800 number. You can get a 1800 plus 800 minutes a month for $15 a month at tollfreeforwarding or kall8. Just remember to use your number only for clients to call in and break the ice and then you can use WhatsApp or FaceTime to negotiate.
You will see why you never needed anyone to sell your domain names. Remember, if you domain is worth it, the buyer is pretty sophisticated enough to find your landing page. FYI, I find that most buyers lately are willing to shell our Bitcoin and Ether much faster than fiat $$ so go to work. So add $30 a month to your domaining budget and cancel or services your currently paying to make your domain “salable” its all a scam. Its okay to bet on domains but be conservative on your holdings. Anything you don’t want to hold for 10 years plus, let go.
