Daily Poll: Do You Participate in Domain Name Auctions?

I have always assumed just about all domain investors participate in domain name auctions. With thousands of auctions occuring daily, including expiring auctions at GoDaddy, NameJet, SnapNames, DropCatch.com or elsewhere, as well as private auctions on platforms like Sedo and some of the others, I assumed just about everyone participates.

In retrospect, I don’t think that is necessarily the case. Participate in the poll below to share if you participate in domain name auctions. You can choose whether you’re a buyer and seller, just a buyer, just a seller, or neither. My guess is that the vast majority of people who respond will be in one of the first three categories, but it will be great to learn more!

  1. I participate in auctions when I sell, but not when I buy. There are too many buyers with deep pockets in auctions, so I think the prices get driven up beyond reseller prices.
