Poll: If Reserve Not Met, Do You Reach Out to Owner?

Having a reserve price on a domain name auction can reduce the risk of underselling a domain name for domain registrants. From what I can see, more and more domain names with reserve prices are coming up for sale on NameJet and other auction platforms. I am curious if domain investors reach out to domain registrants post-auction if they were bidding on a domain name and the reserve price was not met and did not sell.

For today’s poll, I want to know if readers reach out to a domain registrant to try and work out a post-auction deal if the reserve is not met in an auction. If yes, do readers have the auction platform or their account representative reach out on their behalf to try and get a deal done or do it on their own? Vote in the poll below and share additional thoughts in the comment section:

  1. Namescon auction rules prohibit sellers from dealing with anyone directly for a whole year if the name didn’t sell. Makes it kinda tough.
