Francois Carrillo, founder of Domaining.com, recently launched ClosingAuctions.com, a website that allows visitors to track domain auctions from several top aftermarket websites, as the auctions are set to close. Visitors to Domaining.com and to the ClosingAuctions.com website can currently follow along with auctions from Sedo, GoDaddy, BargainDomains.com, Afternic, Auctionpus.com, and Latonas.com.
Once Francois is able to integrate Namejet and Snapnames auctions into his platform, I think the service will be even more beneficial to domain investors. According to Francois, he is in the process of working with both companies to onboard them, although it seems like Snapnames will happen more quickly. With thousands of daily pageviews to Domaining.com, it’s a good opportunity for these companies to get added exposure to their closing auctions.
Aside from its top placement on Domaining.com where domain investors can have a glance at upcoming ending auctions, another advantage of ClosingAuctions.com is that it offers information about the keyword(s) and search terms at a glance, including CPC, Estibot valuation, monthly searches, and # of Google results.
One of the most impressive things to me is that Francois has been able to create a large network of inter-related websites in the domain investment space. In addition to the aforementioned websites, Francois’ company also owns Valuate.com, Catchy.com, a popular Domaining.com newsletter.com, and a host of other projects that are in their infancy. When you think about it, I think it’s pretty neat to see what Francois has done in just a couple of years.
