I’m sure you’re surprised to see a case study post on a Tuesday but I thought I’d try an interesting experiment by selling a CHIP as well as a regular LLLL through no reserve NamePros auctions. I’ve sold regular LLLLs like this before but never chips. Not sure if this has ever been tried before to be honest but anyway, I’ve decided to give it a go.
Here’s the full text of the newsletter:

This has to be the shortest newsletter I’ve ever sent and I’ve asked people to make me their best offer for a *really* good chip (- edited: the domain has been removed – ), with each person only getting one chance to make the offer in question (no negotiations). Should be interesting, people hate wasting time and by getting right down to business, I’m giving them what they want in my opinion.

I love it how most people think the future can be predicted in an accurate and consistent manner, from Average Joes who consider themselves experts after reading a few articles on the Interwebs to PhDs who think their models are the best thing since sliced bread.

Really good deals today, final price reductions on 5 premium LLLL dot coms (- edited: the domains have been removed – ) and 4 regular LLLLs (- edited: the domains have been removed – ), I’m sure bargain hunters will be very happy with this week’s newsletter
As always, here’s the full text of the newsletter, the domains will be removed within 48-ish hours so as not to get indexed:

Shane wrote about some of the hate messages and even threats he’s been receiving lately and it makes me sick to my stomach. No matter how strongly you disagree with someone, resorting to hate comments and/or threats is low.

Short domains have been a blessing for our industry but from certain perspectives, also a curse.
They have helped companies such as Sedo which were on a clear downward slope as reseller market venues come back to life.

According to a recent email they’ve sent, DN.com will be closed for a few more days. Their exact wording is “several days more” and “several” is pretty strong wording but since the people behind the escrow service are from China, it might just be a language barrier thing, perhaps they didn’t use “several” to indicate that we’ll be talking about a significant amount of time and simply should have used “a few” or “lighter” expressions.

At first, I have to admit I didn’t “get” short domains. Quite frankly, I still don’t get numerics for example from an end user perspective.
But as time passed, I realized it doesn’t matter what I “get” or what I “want”, it all boils down to what the market wants.

As a lot of you have noticed by now, DN.com is down. Down as in literally down, “Can’t reach this page” message and all that good stuff. No “We are undergoing maintenance” template, no explanation page, nothing.
This is beyond ridiculous/unprofessional and it’s things like this which make it clear our industry is still in its infancy.
