Daily Poll: Will CIA.com Sell at NameJet?

The CIA.com domain name, which is not owned by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), is up for sale on NameJet. The reserve price range for the auction is listed as “Between $700,001 and $800,000.” The current high bid is $700,000, which is just below the reserve price range.

The domain name is set to go to auction in a little over three days, and it will stay in a live auction for three days.

Do you think the domain name will hit reserve and sell?

  1. Experience with counterparty domains is that they attract a fascinating array of inbound traffic, but Goog declines to provide ad feeds, so the traffic is wasted. Unnamed agencies (who would benefit from such traffic data) are not at all interested in the traffic, for unknown reasons.

    The only serious purchase attempts have apparently involved stolen credit cards.

    In the adult side of the domain-investing-and-website-buildout industry, IME you’re either all in, or you’re not making any money. The same could be said for these kinds of domains. But with adult domains, at least they don’t interfere with your ability to get on a plane.

    The only serious advice received on what to do with these sorts of domains is to turn them into porn sites. That’s risky because some stakeholders would not be amused.
