I recently learned that Name.com is running a beta domain name Flash Sale portal. I am told the beta test began back in August, and private domain portfolios have been listed for sale. New domain names are listed every 15 minutes.
List prices range from $19.99-$1,000, and there are no specific categories of names that are offered. Buyers can browse the names and make purchases just like they would any other name on Name.com.
The company is open to expanding the flash sale platform to other domain sellers, interested parties can find out more by contacting email@example.com. They will be handling requests on a one-off basis. Sellers pay a 10% commission, and domain names must be registered at Name.com to be listed for sale.
The flash sales page and feed came as a spin off of Name.com’s Affordable Premium Domains page. The company is also using a special Twitter account to promote individual sales.
If you’ve used the flash sale portal before, I’d be interesting in hearing about your experience – both on the buy and sale side of the transaction.
