I sold a name yesterday on Afternic for $800 more than the landing page buy it now, that was displayed across the top of the page in big numbers.
This isn’t an anomaly it happens all the time, and I’ve talked about it before. I still think it’s a testament to the impulse buys in the registration path as well as overall inefficient aftermarket, coupled with buyers that have no idea what they’re doing.
But I ran in to something a few weeks ago on 2 different names, that made me reconsider my overall opinion. The buyers contacted me through whois, looking for a price.
My standard answer, if I don’t want to deal with it, is to tell them to click the link at the top of the landing page to buy the domain. Apparently the for sale lander doesn’t always resolve, possibly depending on the ip location.
I know that one inquiry came from France, can’t remember where the other came from, but the buyer told me that nothing came up when they typed in the domain. I checked and it worked on my end, So I’m not sure if this is a bigger issue or just something weird that happened.
