I’m going to start off by saying I don’t know the owners of the domain I am going to talk about and I have no ill will either but there are certain things that make me feel like some domain owners think we’re all idiots.
The other day I talked about a domain dropping at Godaddy, checkout.org. I said that I was going to buy it if it sold below $1500. It sold for $1600 so I didn’t buy it. Good buy for the new owner and best of luck to them. Then I go to the Domaining.com headlines and see a link to this over at Flippa
I have NO problem with people flipping names. Its what we all do. I prefer having people not knowing what I paid for domains but if you buy in a public marketplace then you have to face the fact that the sale price is going to be on the net for people to find. The issue is not the price it’s the statement.
There are absolutely no extensions available for this one. !We were going to develop this one out but need development money for our other project
Unless the original owner renewed it at the last moment then the new buyer had intended to develop it for what? A day? Now he wants to sell. If it is the original owner then he almost let it expire and obviously doesn’t care too much about the name. Either way this is the perfect example of why nobody believes these types of statements. They want to sell to make a little money because THEY HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO BUILD IT OUT! I hope the owner makes a little profit because it was a good buy but don’t treat us domain buyers like we’re stupid. You will make a profit because it is a good name, no more no less. And now they owe me 10% for the publicity.
