We took a month a bit frantic motion of domains. Although they rarely sell any and what I like is to increase the portfolio level domains that may be developed in the future, in these weeks I have finished selling some that I thought were not near as anuncios.pro development , carta.info or coctel.net by approximately 6,000 Euros in total. But what most caught my attention is certain to buying opportunities, especially in auctions that have appeared backorders. In the last three days I have fished as interesting domains cultura.info (for $ 81US), mercados.info ($ 60US) and negocio.info (230US $) ... very little money. It is most significant that it was so little money - but in two of the auctions were only 2 people, and the other was me alone. Now that's really funny. In recent years SnapNames auctions, pool or namejet, were filled with people, bidders and curious and it was really hard to shop for bargains. I see some of that audience has disappeared and this has led me to record these three domains to which they see the imminent possibility of creating content. I really like. Info, while my initial approach in order of preference, which was something like: 1 -. com 2 -.'s 3 -. net 4 -. org and. info 5 -. mobi I finished moving to a scenario type 1 -. Com 2 -. 3-4. Net. 5 info -. Tv For me the. Mobi no longer exist, as I said sometimes I think they are a bluff where I fell at first.'s. Org . eu, three quarters of the same, and. positions and drag info almost like I value. net. Register cultura.info for less $ 81US I think just a joke, a bargain, I see it to create cultural content, and negocio.info mercado.info also have a very clear development potential. Just mention that 1 year ago I paid for about 5,000 Euros musica.info and price ratio of each other is just funny. Not if every time there is less money for the domain industry or people get tired of auctions. But if they go out buying opportunities like this week I will be happy, and will take, whether or not there is a crisis, to buy and save what you can, that surely they'll pull to create projects in the coming years. More or less since December, and much to my regret, as we have a very broad portfolio I see that the market for domain names is clean, relaxing and self regulates as the global economic situation cools. Want it domains that will cease to be a good investment? I think not, if I understand what he means is that an investment will be much more selective. We have approximately 1300 domains, many of them highly selected. Com,. Net. Info or. Was one single word in which "we have to do something." But over the years we have been buying domains without two generic words. Com, or 1 word but without much real sense or domains in other TLDs Premium not like. Tv. Mobi or. Pros and increasingly I think more than a few of them have earned renewal. Generally we do not sell domains, are like a collection of stickers in which occasionally sell some to invest in others. This month we offer two domains auctioned after, " dominio.tv "and" anuncios.pro ", the latter currently in Sedo auction from here following a bid of $ 1500US. Why we sold these domains, if the offers have not been as good since our economically?. The explanation is varied; "dominio.tv" renewal fee is $ 500 and had no plans to do anything with it, that is, it has taken in the last two years $ 1000, made no sense to keep it standing. "Anuncios.pro" we did not have anything planned, especially because even if I wanted to release something soon classifieds (I love the sector) to prefer that we booked another domain " anuncio.net "Investing in domains has changed much in this 2008 The standard of backorders in Spain in recent years, rarely occur. I do not remember when was the last time the alarm sounded because missing mobile minutes for closing an auction that interested me, I think I really have been in the sector in recent years, and we have too many and only opportunities to improve qualitatively our portfolio, and these opportunities have migrated to private deals or through buying platforms like Sedo or Afternic sale, but rarely in auction. One of those rare cases of auction takes place now. NameJet auction right now the domain " vida.com "at auction? private? in which there are 209 bidders. 2 days left for the sale of the domain, which certainly got the look that will end in an American investor, and bids are already at $ 8,100. The domain I think it's great and there are things that could be done with ... but unfortunately not in our plans would make them immediately, so do not think it makes sense to eventually buy. Still, what we are discussing internally so intense. Summer is always something unpredictable, and that also applies to the sale of domain names. Personally in buying and selling domains, observed for months, specifically I would say that since December, a huge drop in the tender offers and deals closed, even as I said a few months ago, the presence of non-payments . The recent months, in Spanish, just highlight the operation Sevilla.com purchase , which I found a better buy than sell for $ 102.000US. It is true that more and more major operations are closed in private, public or non-reported, but it is also true that there has been a huge decline, possibly motivated by the current economic situation, investment in domains. During this month August I've been offered three different portfolios of domains, some with over 2,000 domains in Spanish. What does that mean? Undoubtedly there domainers trying to get out of the business, and I think it is a bad time for that. Never interested me buy a large number of domains, but quite the contrary, I was worried that they are quality generic in fact the only logic in these volumes is profitable domain parking, and we always have done quite badly. What if I want is to buy premium domains, generic words that may serve to create brand, to generate medium term thematic content, which is why we bought such makes some dates nuevastecnologias.com that probably paid a premium on the actual value of domain, but I thought it would be worth the effort, for a not too distant future, to launch a publication on Internet technology. In summer I like to be especially attentive to the forums, the holidays do that if an opportunity emerges, it has less visibility so if you act fast you can be good buys. This summer it has been at times, for example a few days in a post demene.com, Raquel she released dozens of generic domains. com some of them at a very reasonable price. Diego, which continues daily Demene was attentive and bought some domains that are not bad and that without being the best that we can be useful to create things in the future. Were susurralo.com , conocerlo.com , horterada.com , preparativo.com , puntuacion.com , especula.com we acquired a total of € 410, which gives an average of less than symbolic 70EUR each. The ones I like are puntuacion.com and preparativo.com. Possibly a purchase at that price would not have been possible other month of the year because someone always had bid up in all or any of them. Opportunities are rarely seen in times moved and we have to try to find and use. Incidentally, the same Rachel has put the auction on eBay for me is the best domain: empresas.com , if anyone is interested to scratch his pocket € 100,000 reserve wing ... but the domain is magnificent. Among the great sales that are taking place these days by Sedo's Domain Name I want to highlight one that I find particularly significant is Sevilla.com The GeoDominio sevilla.com went to auction in the Auction SEDO domain Monografica ago few months, with others like valladolid.com and did not reach the reserve price expected, but the efforts of the Department of Spanish Domains been made after the auction has been sold $ 102.000US finally think it is a very good buy, the price I do not think at all exorbitant for. com a town the size of Seville. In fact, I would not like either excessive an amount in the range of $ 200.000US-300.000US $ for a domain as well. The future of GeoDominios. Com is formidable and this is a great purchase transaction. I have the idea to develop Madrid.net in the future, more specifically during 2009. Other domains we have of GeoCities as Ciudad Real , Plasencia , Fuenlabrada , Pozuelo , Algete , Valdelagua , etc. have no immediate plans for development, but if we find an entrepreneur who knew those markets and propose something we would be happy to give it away and invest in the project. I blindly geodominios developments focused on a local market, and a monetization venture between e-commerce and advertising campaigns micro very local approaches based on a formula based on the concept customers The long tail. Featured Else Sedo this week have been autos.es € 110,000 as reported in the Congressional Forum Domains , fieras.com 12.000US $, or € 4,200 expo.es So says Isabel Vazquez Eye Domains Many people have asked me why I chose a domain.'s For my blog. The reason is simple, for years I thought it would not open a personal blog, so I never felt the need to record alejandrosuarez.com, would certainly have been the first choice. 1 year ago, first I hesitated and wanted to. The www.alejandrosuarez.com domain was already registered and the whois look I saw it was on behalf of a namesake, who apparently has an insurance agency in Venezuela. Contact you and try to buy it, but it was not possible. I do not want to sell, and did very well, I have done the same. I imagine it's the old fable of the hunter hunted. At least with.'s Not the same thing has happened to me and if you checked into your day. In fact alejandro.es also checked in liberalizing domains.'s, But later discarded its use, so I sold it last December to receive an offer of € 4000 for it.
