BargainDomains Switches to Auction Format, Catchy.com Gets Catchy

Two domain sales sites get upgrades.

BargainDomains.com, a site from Francois Carrillo of Domaining.com that offers domain names at a significant discount from their appraised value, is switching to an auction format. Previously, domain names were offered at a fixed price for 30 days. Little information about the auctions is available at this time, but submissions are open at the BargainDomains web site.

Another domain sales site from Carrillo — Catchy.com — has also received some significant upgrades. The first is the recent name change from Mocus to Catchy. Now, Catchy.com is obviously a great domain name. (Carrillo tells me he paid a lot for it, and given who the previous owner was I’m not surprised). But it’s even better since, frankly, Mocus.com never appealed to me because it sounds like mucus.

In addition to the name change, Catchy.com now accepts more types of domain names for inclusion. Previously domains had to be 4 letters or fewer; now five are OK. Also, ccTLDs are now accepted on the site. The site also went through a design overhaul and improved its affiliate program.

Most of the domains currently listed on Catchy.com are pronounceable four character CVCV domains such as Cafi.com, Pomi.com, and Pifo.com, although there are also some three character domains.

A Big Thumbs Up for BargainDomains.com

New web site from Domaining.com is very promising.

BargainDomains.comDomaining.com founder Francois Carrillo works relentlessly to introduce new products. I like some more than others. Today I think he’s hit a grand slam with BargainDomains.com.

The premise is simple: you can list your domains for sale on BargainDomains.com for a maximum of 30% of the appraisal price on sister site Valuate.com.

When you take a look at the list of domains on BargainDomains.com, you’ll see that this model will actually work. There are some domains on there at very fair prices. True bargains. Not those elusive “great prices” for “premium domains” that you see everywhere else. There are actually some winners on here.

And, as with all great solutions, the beauty is because of the simplicity.

To list a domain, you just plug it into a submit box. It then tells you the Valuate.com valuation and how much you can list the domain for. Then pick a start date, and everything else is taken care of. Listings are exclusive for 15 days and there’s a 15% sales commission (no listing fee.)

Another beautiful but simple feature: domains discounted the most from their appraisal prices are shown higher on the page.

This web site is one to follow.
