Can anyone tell me if the site with the hosting is the hosting they offer with the site ?

I got a quick question: Can anyone tell me if the site with the hosting is the hosting they offer with the site ?

I also got another question: I rarely decide to sell my domains at a fire sale auction instead of renewing (starting at $1 or $5). A couple weeks ago I sold a HostGator for $5 (not even worth my time but I was thinking 8 bucks to renew $5 sale is a swing of $13). Had it for 1 year no real bites so I thought what the hell-must have been bored that day.

Anyways I received an offer through my parking company for an initial offer of $300 for it. I contacted my buyer and told him I had an offer and if he wanted me to broker it for him I would. I have countered at $500 and will see where it goes.

Has anyone had this happen to them before and want to share? Feels like getting a kick in the nads... Oh well what can you do.

Your question was: Can anyone tell me if the site with the hosting is the hosting they offer with the site ?

By contacting the buyer and offering to broker you made lemonade from the lemons.

Not as good as getting it all, but not bad...

I had the same expetience... And I was rejected when contacting the new owner who bought the name from me.

That is a part of domaining.....

Comment #2

I had this happen about 10 times to me this year. Some I was able to work out deals for, some I was not. It seems for many domains, the first contact I get about them is the 9th-12th month that I owned the domain, or right away after purchase...

Congrats! You are not a good domainer, you just got lucky...

Comment #5

So you sold the name for $5 and got a $300 offer afterwards, or did I miss something?..

Comment #6

Thanks, nothing wrong with luck.

Yes, I sold it for $5 after holding it for a year and right after I sold it a first offer of $300 came in.

From what I can comprehend, yes.

Same thing happened to me, sold a name at another forum for 200 and hadn't removed it from sedo yet. 3 days later get an offer for 1500, then 2000, then 2500 on sedo.

I cried myself to sleep that evening...

Hi Gary.

Yes, I had the same experience but somewhat less extreme. I sold a here at NamePros for about $50 and then the next morning the same name sold at TDNAM for $300. Tried to repurchase the name from the first buyer but with no success. The worst thing wasn't even the lost money as I almost lost my TDNAM account because of not following through with the sale. Thankfully the second buyer was understanding though and was happy to have the money refunded and I got away with a warning from TDNAM...

I was actually in escrow for 18K on a name 2 months ago - and was offered 25K and 35K by two other buyers. I stuck with my original deal (of course) - but it makes me physically ill at times to think of it.... along with domains I've sold waaay too cheap. like for 2500...
