A comprehensive look at the final auction prices, closeouts and more from the auction list posted on March 24, 2017. 

If there is an asterisk (*) next to a price, it means that the name was at auction from a private seller (rather than an expiring name) and may have had a reserve.  I’m only showing where the price was when the auction ended, but the name may not have sold if a reserve was in place.

I rarely have final prices for the Namejet names on the list, because they usually do not end the same day as they are posted to the list.  For now, instead of posting the list with no prices, I’ll post the top 10 Namejet sales for yesterday as listed on Namebio. $16,000 $7,000 $5,499 $2,810 $2,520 $2,322 $2,161 $1,875 $1,622 $1,600

The Comfort of Reliability and Lack Thereof

I have to admit there are days during which I envy those who have the comfort of 9 to 5 jobs. Even if it’s a fake sense of comfort and the idea of job safety is somewhat of a joke, it must be relieving not to feel any kind of “I wonder how much money [...]

IKE’S LIST OF DOMAINS AT AUCTION FOR Saturday, March 25th and Domainer Ethics

Domainer Ethics

Yesterday a friend contacted me about a domain that expired and was recently sold at Godaddy auctions. The name was being used for a Catholic elementary school website. It displayed upcoming fundraisers for the general public as well as internal school information for the students and parents to access.

Shortly after the completion of transaction, the domain that numerous children navigate to everyday, redirected to Russian porn.

I contacted the new owner of the domain, and they immediately took the porn redirect down, so I won’t mention which domain it was. It makes me think of the larger issue of domainer ethics and responsibility, not only to the industry but to society in general.

If Russian porn is how you make money, that’s fine, but if you’re going to use recently expired domains that had been running as websites up until the time they expired, make sure that they weren’t sites that targeted children.

I actually think that the porn redirect might simply be a sales ransom tactic. I found an article with a similar situation, the domain had expired and the previous owner found their real estate business  domain resolving to porn and basically had to pay the ransom to get the porn taken down.

I asked the new owners if it would be possible to get the School’s domain back for their website and they responded, “it might be possible, but it won’t be cheap, possible several grand”. I think that if you’re approached by a previous owner right after you obtain a name, especially if it was owned by a non profit organization, that it’s only reasonable to sell them back the name for a nominal price, taking into account your time and effort.

This brings up another point, the general public are clueless as to how a domain life cycle works. The school website didn’t resolve after it expired, but the volunteer that ran the site had no idea what the issue was. I’m sure they received several emails from Godaddy advising them that the name had expired.

We invest in domains to make money, some full time and some as a hobby. There are  plenty of opportunities to make money using ethical and non controversial methods.
