Your question was: Any discount codes out there for Godaddy hosting?.
No names that gets my interest either!! good luck selling those though..
Nothing that stands out to me, would take the advice from reece and have a look at the newbie section.
All the best..
Yikes! apart from the llll.com, someone might give you $25 for bloggerresources.com. and maybe 3-4 others might scrape in there too. the rest are pretty much worthless IMHO.
The advice everyone gets told here is:.
- stick to .coms and reg little in your first 3 months.
- read all you can at namepros.
- follow dnjournal sales reports, see what sells and try to work out why.
Best bet from here with these is ebay as reece said, only worth it really for your best .coms. some of the gay marriage .coms spelled correctly might get some news buzz effect happening, but don't expect much.
You could also start by putting your big list on namepros - at $30 a name, then reduce to $25, $20, $15... down to $1 a name, and even $1 for 2 or 3 names, etc at the end.
Best of luck..
From the quality of the domains you own, don't think you can sell it anywheresorry..
Wow.......the only thing I could say is to try and find a newbie that does not know any better and dump them on him/her. It sure wouldn't feel good doing this since they are all without value, IMO, however $7,380.00, or however much you paid for 1000 domains is a big hit. Right there was your development money you spent on these domains.
Yes.... you need to follow Reece's advice, I'm sorry to say.
Good luck.... I hope it all works out...
I'm interested in a few of your domains....
Sent you the details by PM..
I really do appreciate you being honest that's what I am looking for, honesty.
Some one pointed me to estibot.com for basic appraisals. After spending much time running these via estibot, a group of the HostGator names looked promising. I listed them on eBay, is that a good place to sell HostGator names?.
Must be a lot of newbs there right? Anyways I created this listing http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260262794671Estibot put an estimate of around $9,000 for this small portion of the domains. I set a reserve price of $7,000 is that to much? Do you think I am fishing here with eBay or I have a chance to sell the SEO domains...
Taking a look at your listing I can tell you I would immediately click away because of how purposefully misleading it is. I know you want people to look, but having those premium names in the title and then listing those names as you do makes a very bad first impression.
I wish you luck in unloading those though...
Thanks, Im looking for the brutal honesty. What should I do besides fixing the title anything? I see a lot of people doing misleading title and copied them.
But your right misleading title along with 0 feedback is a disaster. Thanks for opening my eyes, any other suggestions would be appreciated...
Remove these from your listing title - Scripts.com, SearchEngine.com, PPC.com, SEO.net.
It's badly misleading.
Estibot appraisals are NOT bible..
Not just Estibot, but, all appraisals (automated or not) are just appraisals.
I am not sure about your reserve price.
How about now? is this better?.
I was wondering on a side note, do you think these guys who sell HostGator on ebay for 100G or over a million ever sale them?..
Some of them are not so bad but were difficult to spot because of the long list...I think you should start by spend some time categorizing them because it's difficult to browse through a thousand HostGator names.....
It's better now.
The guys who list domains for ridiculous prices never sell them.
If your reserve is over $100, I'd suggest you lower it drastically if you actually want to sell...
There are a few that could be used successfully for development, such as UsingKeywords.com, I see you've already developed that, that's good.
Most of your domains have no value. I suggest the first thing you do is set the Auto-Renew to OFF at your registrar. Renew only your developed sites and those that bring in more than Reg fee in PPC each year, and some other with obvious value such as LLLL.coms. You'll probably end up dropping 99% of these names, which is a good thing - you'll save thousands in renewal fees.
Next, set up a firesale and list these for $5-$10 each on multiple forums, do this well before their expiry date. Chances are you'll get a few sold and recover some losses. Once that's done, list them for $1 each on ebay and the forums.
You could have bought a few very nice generic keyword .coms or an LLL.com for the price of regging all of these. I suggest you focus on getting yourself a few carefully selected keyword .coms with type-in traffic instead of hundreds of worthless names.
Say you had bought an LLL.com or a few premium generics -> you would likely be guaranteed not to lose any money (there is always some risk though), and you might be making a nice PPC monthly income from them.
But don't worry - we all did this when we first started. Regged lots of worthless names and lost money - it's a learning experience..
Sorry, same here. Reece told it like it is..
Thanks, I think this is some of the best advice I have received!! Your absolutely correct, alot of money wasted when I could purchase a few premium domain's.
My opinion is always stick to quality over quantity. I might take a few chances here and there, but will rarely even hand reg. Because with this list alone you would be paying $7500 a year just for holding costs...
You could not have asked for better advice than right here. Looking forward now, the walk is not so much uphill, good luck...
Not really. Sometimes it's a cheap promotional thing for some people (and sometimes a scam). You can get lucky on ebay sometimes though, crap names might go for $xx.
I agree ^ the combined wisdom of the namepros crew is a valuable thing..
Thanks for the additional feedback. Tell me if I am getting warmer. I listed this listing today on ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=260263716812.
I think much better than the first one, what do you think. I know you guys knocked estibot, but I think it still gives you a good from the hip estimate of value.
Basically out of my 160 (LLLL) I grouped the ones that estibot claimed had a value greater than Reg fee which was only 24 out of 160 DN's actually there was 25 if I include "yotd.net" but I found out that this hand reg now has a Google PR3. So I am going to keep it for now. Someone suggested I move it to a new host to a separate IP block and use it to one way link to my other HostGator names? Sounds like a good I dea don't you think.
Sorry went off on a tangent there.... so anyways I listed the top LLLL .nets I had. I had trouble figuring out what the starting bid should be though. Estibot puts a value of around $1200 or more on these HostGator names. I started the bidding at $200 do you thin that is to high and do you think my listing looks more referable this time around?.
Thanks guys you have been great help, dont know what I can do for you, but If I can do something let me know.
The listing looks great but the $200 start price is way too high, start it at $1..
I do HostGator brokerage. I would be willing to get you on either AIM (peterjfoti) or MSN () to talk with you about the brokerage process, my fees, things of that nature. Let me know if you are interested. But like Reece said, most of these arent going far, but I'm willing to work with you if you are interested...
I added you, and saw you did the same. Look forward to talking with you.
