First question I have is How do I start using iPage to edit my site?!? Thanks in advance for any response. Another question... A Fresh Registration HostGator Name - Quality, absolutely..

$1,400? Kidding me, right?.

A few hundred dollars would seem more than fair for a HostGator registered less than 2 months ago. Sometimes I love being a domainer, but I hate other domainers.... lol.

Ahhh well - time to rethink the concept...

That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the answer. I'll do some research and get back to you if I discover an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably know..

No, checked back through Archive, and a few others. I also didnt see this as dropping as I go through my daily lists. I would put it at 90% this is a fresh reg, no drop. However - I do hear you. I simply was making a point that I prefer to be the one selling a HostGator name, instead of buying it from another domainer...

As domainers we tend to be a hypocritical bunch. We expect to buy for wholesale and sell for retail. It is only once we are looking to buy and are met with a retail asking price (as in the posted situation) that we get pissed off...

For sure, me too !.

The last time I made an offer for a HostGator on sedo the owner replied with $ 5 million.

Pricing domains is a very bizarre subject - one that even the professional domainers seem to struggle with !.

What chance have we got of getting it right even a small percentage of the time.

LoL - so true. Agghhhhhhhhhhhhh. Like I said in the title - Simply Frustrating. I suppose I cant be too upset with the domainer, he is simply doing what I would do. It is a good pickup, and he will probably do better than I can offer for it. Ahhh well.

Thanks everyone for your input, makes me less grumpy..

My personal favorite is when people are looking for "reseller prices" -.

As though I'm going to sell my domains cheaper... to someone else that's going to sell it for more... LOL... I always laugh when I see that!.

In my world... reseller prices don't exist... whether you're an end-user or a reseller... you get the same quote..

...unfortunately some domainers think that if they receive.


Offer for a name they are trying to sell that the frog is instantly a princess.................

I bought a HostGator from another domainer for 4-figures just a few weeks after he registered it. The name probably still isn't worth much in a lot of people's eyes, but if obestatin turns into THE solution for obesity like it's projected to be, then having wouldn't hurt!.

Even besides cases like that where new keywords hit the market, if you're going to be the end user on the name, who cares? You'll make the money back. Sure it's frustrating when you get great deals on the names you're NOT developing and not on the names you ARE developing, but there's not much you can do except consider utilizing a different name for what you plan to develop. 2 of the 3 names I bought this past week that I shelled out $x,xxx for would probably not be valued too well by most of the people here, but I love the crap out of them. They will become the homes of some brilliant websites and make the purchase of them well worth it...
