Don’t get me wrong. I am not a domain expert. I am still a domain newbie.

Some people might think that I started this website because I thought I am a domain expert. No where near that. I am still a domain newbie and as a part-time domainer (full time as a doctor) and I know domaining is too much to learn. When I started domaining in around 2007, I registered about 100 domains as bad as theGoodFriday.co.uk which I thought would be worth x,xxx range or so. I was so wrong. I dropped over 95% of those domains.

Apart from a few xx,xxx range domain sales, there is nothing much going on with my domaining. I am more towards acquiring domains rather than focussing on selling domains. I started this domain news website to share some domain latest news on domain sales, auctions etc…

I am still a domain newbie and I recently acquired the following domains. 

FootballScore.com,

WhatisMyCreditScore.com

MyPokerTour.com ,

OurCasinos.com,

HospitalDoctor.com,

PuzzleNetwork.com,

Jigsaws.net,

Fridge.net,

FirstBlackjack.com,

Weirdly.com,

ProjectManagementCourses.com

SofaSite.com

LostTheories.com

CornerSuite.com

PropertyMaintenance.net

WeirdHolidays.com

BestBuyPhones.com

CaseFan.com

RecoveryVehicle.com

past few days or so. I would welcome any comments on my domain acquisition. (if comment is not working, you could always contact me via email : admin (at) deliciousnames.com .

Below is the Valuate.com valuation which is very rough. (but still quite smart for an automatic appraisal tool) e.g. MyPokerTour.com for $50 is a bit too low, I think.

    I don’t check the valuate price on any of my domains because it’s completely useless. If you think you’ll get even a hundredth of what it said projectmanagementcourses.com is worth you are greatly misled. You’ve got a few decent names there but I’ve got the feeling you paid too much for them. Feel free to correct me if I’m wrong.

    And out of curiosity, what domains of yours sold for $xx,xxx?

  2. Domain News says:

    Which domains do you think I paid too much?

    I agree with you on Valuate.com and I have mentioned that it is a crude tool but the domain tool shows some useful data.

    ps: if someone bet $1 million dollar that I am not a doctor, I would prove properly to win that bet.

    That´s some nice domains there, in my opinion. Fridge.net and CaseFan.com is my favorites of those, and I wouldn’t mind owning them. I was looking at projectmanagementcourses.com when it was about to drop, but I never got around to backorder it. Do you mind sharing what you got it for?

  4. Domain News says:

    I paid reasonable amount for Projectmanagementcourses.com. That’s what I can say at the moment.

  5. well done brave of you to list all your domain purchases for us all to see.

  6. Try to think in terms of which end users would potentially be interested in acquiring such a domain. Fridge.net could be marketed to refrigerator manufacturers while CornerSuite.com could potentially be marketed to a blogger / magazine devoted toward executives. Jigsaws.net to a company which produces that type of game. The others I see as more difficult to sell so I would list them at $199-$299 at SEDO and TDNam and maybe you will get lucky with one or two to recoup your reg fees. I believe your list illustrates what I have found – that it is nearly impossible to find .COM domains worth registering and thus one has to seek quality .Net domains which still aren’t easy to find either.

  7. Mike says:

    Appraisals are worthless. What the buyer is willing to pay, that is what the domain is worth.

  8. santos says:

    It is not easy to sell a domain name folks. There are about 2 billion registred domain names in the world and the 2 or so well known domain auction websites are only able to sell 20 to 30 domain names a day, that means selling domain names is a hopeless business. Having the luck to sell a domain name is like having the luck to win lottery. It’s just not easy/. The people making maoney on domain name business are the registrars like godaddy and others, not registrants.

    I don’t think you are a domainbie. You are a domain expert.

  12. I’d must verify with you here. Which isn’t something I normally do! I enjoy reading a post that will make individuals think. Additionally, thanks for permitting me to comment!

  13. check it out says:

    My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on numerous websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform. I have heard good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your post seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Thanks
