Your question was: Can't log in to godaddy.com acct. WHY????.
I trust the seller. Its a matter of paying very less in getting the bargain or informing that the price is too low and paying higher than the seller expected..
Well if you trust the seller then, go for it!.
Maybe they just have a need for some quick cash.....
You can ask why it's priced low, but then you.
May end up losing the first offer..
There's no problem ethically with some at far less than it's market value if that's the price somebody offered it to you for. That's the domaining game for you. It's trying to identify domains that are priced under their value, buy them, and sell them later on for a profit...
If you think you're having a steal leave a bonus on the table for the other party so it's more a win-win transaction..
Why would you inform them that the price is too low? That's just dumb IMO.
Anyway, the market value of a HostGator is the price of what a willing buyer & a willing seller come to.
If it's legit not a scam, make the purchase, it's called business. Happens every day in real life. Or if you're hesitant on making the purchase let me know about the deal & if it looks good for me & I can afford to buy it, I'll take it off their hands for you, that way you'll feel better..
I did what Kath mentioned, paid around 15% more than he/she asked for...
Feel free to browse through my domains for sale, haha.
I agree with htmlindex, I can't believe anyone would want to pay more than what the seller is asking for.
I don't think my way of thinking has anything to do with a lack of ethics...you win some and you lose some...
...You lose some, so whenever you can win some, you should take advantage of that...
Though you must ask yourself why is that HostGator being sold for so low? Is there a reason they want to get rid of it? Does it check out with major search engines? Is it really worth what you/I think it is worth?.
Those types of questions are very important when buying domains that you think should be selling for more or unregged names.
May we know what the name is?..
The bottom line is each HostGator Owner is responsible for determining appropriate market pricing for their own HostGator names. Quite honestly, sometimes people price HostGator names lower then they should because they need a quick sale for liquidation.
I make my living off buying low and selling high. If I cant buy low, I dont make money.
