Re: Off the wall domaining

Some of those prior sales numbers are frothy alright.

3000.com for $12,000 and 18.no $17,150. Wow.

Should be interesting to see how this auction goes... I see softening in ASCII-land outside of good keywords.

Yes. I've got over 100 NNNN.com domains.
Had good offers for some ... one recently $20K.
Deal fell through when he wanted to reduce the price - to $15K, I refused, then up to $18K, but I didn't like how he did business, so no deal.

No problem. Some people were into NEW.NET domains (until they figured out it was pretty much a gimmick with no value). Some loved .mobi. Some went for .tv and .ws and .cc, etc. Some were strictly ASCII in all extensions, some only went for .coms. (I'm 99% .coms).

In ascii, I went for a wide range of names - popular phrases, LLL.com and LLLL.com, made-up words (like puggles.com, which later became a dog breed!), keywords/search terms, and then IDNs when I found out about them in November 2000.

NNNN.coms seem to sell from $1000+ Minimum to tens of thousands of dollars these days. Seemed to be a good bet when there are only 10,000 NNNN.coms and they can be used for different things. Also, NNNNs are "real" IDNs - universal in all languages. The last inquiry I had was from China.
