Daily Poll: Have You Had Success With a “Domains Wanted” Post?

Raymond Hackney published a relatable article about “Domains Wanted” posts on NamePros. I think the commentary would apply to other domain forums, Twitter, and on other venues.

I have posted a few threads on forums and even here on my blog, and my experience has been similar to what Raymon wrote for the most part. I would often receive domain name submissions that are totally unrelated to the ask or the prices are not where I requested. I try to be very specific about what I want, but it’s difficult to do that and keep it open enough for good domain names of interest.

I did have a good experience a couple of months ago when a domain name wanted tweet resulted in the purchase of Cappuccino.com.

Have you had success buying a domain name after publishing a “domain wanted” post? If so, where did you post it and what did you buy?

  1. Yes, just be patient. No matter what request you put out there, you will receive to your inbox literally thousands of names (99% ones you probably wouldn’t register).

    Most investors want to post their request and have a mailbox full of perfect domains in their price range and criteria to sort thru. Really, it is just another stream of names to wade through and pick out a gem here or there.
