As I’m looking through the NameJet pre-release lists for names ending tonight at 23:00 EST, I find myself getting increasingly frustrated with the amount of decent names that have reserves of $1000 to $2500. When I say decent, I mean worth ordering for $69, maybe bidding to a few hundred dollars. I certainly don’t mean “decent” as in coming anywhere close to the minimum reserve of $1000.
I looked into it further, I mean who the hell is putting all these names on NameJet, essentially clogging up my search for value by putting a crapload of domains on a wholesale platform at retail prices. Buy Domains, that’s who. I mentioned before that they had numerous listings on NameJet, initially the reserves were in the $500 and under range, now there are tons of names, both decent and crap with all the reserves over $1000.
I pulled a random list of 500 names ending tonight, and did a bulk whois check. 150 names out of the 500 I checked are owned by Buy Domains, have a reserve over $1000 and some are for sale right now on their site and Afternic for a price within the reserve range.
Take for example TheRetard.com. Pre-release ended tonight with no bids, and a reserve range of $1000 to $2500. The damn thing is for sale on their site and Afternic for $1588.
That is 30%! Like I said it was random and not scientific but let’s use it; Why are 30% of the names at NameJet owned by Buy Domains, all with unrealistic wholesale prices?
Are they using NameJet to market their names, gain exposure and sell them on a wholesale platform for retail prices? That seems pointless, but who knows maybe they sell a few this way. What I do know is that it is clogging up NameJet with loads of unsaleable names in a wholesale market.
It has to be hurting overall sales on NameJet. Anyone sorting through the list is going to get slowed down by ⅓ of the names having retail prices. They will miss names that have value at a wholesale price. The good/realistic names won’t sell or will have fewer bidders.
