Things like this don’t surprise me any more but I still have to shake my head. I was doing my daily run through of the expiring auctions at Godaddy and noticed two domains that looked familiar. Wuby and Vuby.com. They were two names that I sold at auction to the same person on Sedo in 2010.
Evidently he lost track of his purchases and forgot to renew them at which Godaddy takes over and puts them up for auction. I actually could care less that they expired except for one thing. Vuby.com sold for more than twice what I sold it for.
Nobody likes to see names they sold sell for more. Wuby.com is up next and I expect it to sell for more than I paid as well. There are a couple lessons I take for them. One, keep your pronounceable LLLL.coms and don’t sell for less than $2K. Two, don’t let your damn domains expire.
