There is a domain name that I am interested in. I don't want to post the domain name here, as I am interested it buying it. The domain name is for sale by one of those BuyDomainNames companies, which I think are a load of crap.
But anyway, they are trying to sell this domain name for over $2,000.00. The domain has been sitting there for 10 years unused, and to this day is unused, its just parked at BuyDomains.com.
I want to buy this domain, I know that I'm not paying $2,000.00 for it. But I don't know how to find out a reasonable price to start bargining at. It seems they might be willing to lower the price, but they want an offer. I have no idea what kind of offer would be fair, to myself, and still keep them from ROFL at me.
I thought there was a free website in the past, that you could enter a domain name, it would consider several details (length, common words, meaning, easy to remember, etc) and give a very generic price for the domain. At least a starting point for me. But I can't find any help with anything.
I contacted GoDaddy.com and they stated they could put the domain name on Backorder, but I'm not 100% sure that I would end up with the domain if they ever let it cancel.
I know that the domain isn't work that much. They also had the .org version of this domain name for sale for $5,000. The domain name was set to expire a month ago, the domain expired, I searched and bought it today for $15.00. So I got a $5,000 domain for $15.00.
I'm hoping the company will let the .com version go as well. I'm not sure what I need to do to get a resonable price for the domain. I think its to my advantage that the domain has been forsale for 10 years, they may be eager to get rid of it, also that's probably why they let the .org version go. Because it never sold.
But I'm not sure how these companies work.
