After selling a name via Afternic Fast Transfer, I was kiddingly chatting with a friend about the stages I go through each time I get an email with this subject: “Congrats [Domain Name] has sold via Afternic Fast Transfer DLS.” I thought I would share with you:
Stage 1 – Excitement – I am happy and excited that I sold a domain name via Afternic Fast Transfer. These emails don’t happen daily, so it’s always a nice bit of excitement to see one in my inbox. It can also take a moment to process the name in my brain, especially on mobile, so it is always exciting to see if it’s going to be a nice sale.
Stage 2 – Anticipation – Much to my chagrin (and despite a few nudges to GoDaddy), the sale price is not included in the notification email. To find out the sale price, I need to either log in to my Afternic account, email my account manager, or use DomainTools. I usually have a general idea of the sale price, but sometimes it’s been a while since I set or changed the price, so I keep my fingers crossed that it was a decent deal.
Stage 3 – Regret – Shoot
