New Domain Auciton Site – BQB.com

with 5 comments

Finally, a fresh new marketplace. I came across BQB.com, which stands for Better Quality Business. This is a auction site, similar to Afternic and Sedo, where you can list your domain names for sale. The best part about this website is that there are no fees. The only time you have to pay a fee is to add extra options to your listing – such as promotion on the front page or extra listing categories.

BQB.com will come to the front of domaining auction market because they are keeping quality in mind. They don’t want 700,000 members. They want quality over quantity. Each member that joins must go through a verification process, where you must submit at least 50 of your domains names that have public whois. The whois information must match the account information you created your account with. Now this will not make things, totally scam free, but it sure will help.

When creating an auciton, you are also allowed to select the payment type. There are many payment types to choose from including the major ones Escrow.com, Paypal, and MoneyBookers.

I’m really a fan of this new site. I really do think it will stick around. With just over 100 quality members in a few days since launch, this website will only continue to improve. Not to mention, they have already made dozens of sales. If you haven’t signed up yet, I encourage you to do so! Putting Bill as your referrer would also help. 😉

Afternic – Another Hoax Sale

with 3 comments

Once again, another domain has been listed on Afternic that has turned out to be a hoax. This time it was Auto.com. This domain was listed on Afternic, with a BIN price of only $10,000. Who in there right mind would pass this baby? A fellow NamePros member decided to take the gamble. He knew it was to good to be true…. and it was.

So how does Afternic react to these types of situations? They just pull the listing, no other information provided. Finally they responded to the thread on NamePros. Here is their response:

Hi,

We removed the listing from the site earlier today. Our customer service staff is working with the “seller” to eliminate the possibility of any more false listings.

Adam Gross
Afternic

Way to go Afternic!

NamePros Approaches 90,000 Members

with 5 comments

Our good friends at NamePros, have done it again. We reported to you in early 2007, that NamePros had passed 50,000 members. In just a little over a year, NamePros has doubled in size. Now if that is not impressive, I don’t know what is.

We have noticed several changes over at NamePros. They recently added a new Short Domain Discussion forum, which specializes in the discussion of domains with 5 characters or less. Primarily you’ll find a lot of talk about LLLL, LLLLL, and LLL domains, in all various extensions.

Another reason we like NamePros so much is because of the live auctions. Every 2 weeks, NamePros holds a live auction – right in their own chat room. This even attracts buyers, usually over 100, to bid on various lots. They come loaded with their wallets. Usually we see some pretty good sales. This past week was loaded with LLLL.coms and everyone can agree some bargains were made. Everyone can also agree that some great sales were made.

So if you haven’t joined NamePros, now is the time to do so! Next live auction will be on April 24th, at 6PM EST.
