Daily Poll: What Rate of Return Do You Expect on Domain Investments?

9

When buying or registering a domain name, most people have a sales price in mind. Some people hand register names they hope to sell for a few hundred dollars and others buy names for thousands of dollars and hope to get a 50% ROI (less than 1x) on their investment.

Today’s poll question asks what rate of return you expect to achieve on your domain name purchases. You are invited to vote in the poll below and I encourage you to post additional thoughts in the comment section.

Daily Poll: What Auction Platform Do You Use Most for Sales?

5

Every day, I look at domain name auction platforms to see what is coming up for auction. I actively bid on GoDaddy Auctions and NameJet, and I occasionally bid on Sedo, DropCatch.com, and a couple of others. I also sell domain names occasionally via auction. Millions of dollars worth of domain names are sold via auction platforms each year.

Daily Poll: Should NameJet Add Bitcoin as a Payment Option?

10

Someone rekindled an old thread from NamePros last year to ask if NameJet will be adding Bitcoin as a payment option. NameJet’s Scott Pruitt quickly responded to tell him that “Bitcoin payment will not be accepted on NameJet in the immediate future.”

Today’s daily poll asks whether you think NameJet should add Bitcoin as a payment option. It might also be helpful if you share some reasons why the company should add it or why it isn’t necessary.


Daily Poll: Better Investment – ccTLDs or New gTLDs?

5

In the DNJournal sales report and on NameBio, I see new gTLD domain name and ccTLD domain name sales. Although I do not have much experience with either, I keep my eyes on these markets to see what is selling and for how much. I also see what is reported to me or reported in press releases – like the $500,000 sale of Home.Loans.

I am curious which type of domain name readers believe would make a better investment. Although I stick to .com investments, I know there are people who have large portfolios of these types of domain names, and I am curious what readers think.
