Using the Watchlist


Over the past few months, I have spent more time using for finding domain names. I use the site pretty much every morning to supplement the various lists of upcoming domain name auctions I review. I also use the site to look for new listings on different domain name sales platforms and marketplaces.

One thing I recently discovered is the “watchlist” feature. Next to each domain name row, there is an unfilled star that can be clicked to add individual domain names to my watchlist. I can then click on the Watchlist button and the domain names I have starred will appear on the list.

The Watchlist is helpful to me because it will allow me to track domain names I am interested in buying. I can then click the RL icon for each name to see various facts, including the price history. For instance, one domain name I am watching went up for sale on Sedo on March 3 for $46,450 and the price was recently reduced to $24,995.

One suggestion I would encourage to make is to list the lowest list price right on the Watchlist page. Instead of having to click through to an informational page about each domain name, I will be able to see the current price right on the Watchlist page. This would streamline my decision making since my Watchlist will likely get larger as time goes on, and it is not tenable to click through on dozens or hundreds of names.

Now that I have been using regularly, I realize I missed out on a lot of buying opportunities. Too bad for me, but I am glad I am using it now.

  1. @Bulls such tools require effort to produce profitable results. That we see so few contributors to thought-provoking articles is a reflection of the proportion of domain name traders who are prepared to put in that effort as a contrast with the numbers who believe it is a get rich quick scheme and rapidly pass through, instantly replaced by oh so many similar individuals.

    I perceive many possible reasons why prices of good names is likely to rise over time. Increased use of isn’t one of them. Yes, the number of users may well rise. But not by a sufficient degree to sway prices in any substantial way.
