Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

Frankly there is not enough serious interest to even attract decent dot nets. This place is about worthy of dot NU at the moment!

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

Because 1 out of 5 generic drops are dot net, flippers flip drops. There is a lot of recycling going on.

I buy chinese dot net to prepare myself for the possibility of dot idn aliasing.

very few people sell premium dot coms - why would they when they will be worth 10x in 3-5 years.

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

Ones of the reasons might be noni has been very hardworking, picking out the .com - he only goes for .com, leaving out the .net for flippers.

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

In the last month or so I have posted Arbic geo .coms, sports .coms, Bengali "Internet" .com, Greek generic business, company and entertainment (radio) .coms, not to mention a couple of Swedish .coms that pay for them selves many times over yearly.

As RD says, there hasn't been any serious interest. If people are expecting IDNs at revenue multiples or for barrel-scraping prices at this point, maybe they should look at Namepros or other places, where "ŝèx.com" seems to be the sale of the day.

This isn't meant to be directed at anyone at all, it's just a general comment on the state of the market, as it were.

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

Couldn't find any .nu's at that level...

I remember I had investment.nu, free to register 4 years ago, sold it for cheap and it seems, looking at the whois, he let it expire.

The pricing is odd

Is there some special connection between Sweden and .nu ?

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

If i'm not mistaken, RD must have sold a 100k worth of names this year, so there must be big buyers lurking around. I think they are looking at our posts now! :o

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

Oh forgive me... I think the pricing is waayyy low and selling investment.nu was the worst mistake of my life :p .

Let's not cause unwarranted inflation .

Yes, btw it would be nice if more people would be willing to share the final sale price... (that was what you meant I guess)

My guess only, based on the hints he made along the way! Maybe less? 80k?

Re: Thousands of dot nets for sale

RD owns half of China!

I think "nu" means "now" in Swedish, which is why .nu is popular in Sweden.
