Domaining.com To Launch New Domain Escrow Service

November 28, 2010domain escrow, Domain Services, Domaining, Domaining.com, DomainnamewireComments Off on Domaining.com To Launch New Domain Escrow Service

New escrow service coming in December.

Cybertonic, the company behind Domaining.com, is readying a new domain name escrow service at eCOP.com. The service appears to be only for domain names sold for $5,000 or less and will charge a flat $25 fee.

eCOP will not take ownership of the domain name and will only be an intermediary to hold the money until the domain name is transferred. Focusing only on smaller domain name transactions is an interesting idea and I’ll be curious to see how this plays out.

Cybertonic’s Francois Carrillo is certainly a busy guy right now. Within the past couple weeks he has launched two new marketplaces: MatureNames.com for adult domain names and LocationDomains.com for geographic location domains.

Domaining.com Launches Traffic Domains Marketplace

September 9, 2010Domain Sales, Domaining, Domaining.com, Domainnamewire, francois carrillo, trafficdomains.comComments Off on Domaining.com Launches Traffic Domains Marketplace

Marketplace deals exclusively with domains that receive traffic.

Francois Carrillo of Domaining.com has launched a brand new marketplace for selling domains that get traffic. In keeping with Carrillo’s love of great domain names, the marketplace is aptly named TrafficDomains.com.

Even more exciting for me is that Carrillo has chosen to use DNW Certified Stats to authenticate traffic stats on the site. One of the big challenges to buying domains with traffic is getting accurate information from the seller. By requiring users to use DNW Certified Stats when listing a domain, TrafficDomains.com brings more transparency to the process.

To list a domain on TrafficDomains.com you enter its details along with your DNW Certified Stats certificate number:

TrafficDomains.com then grabs traffic and revenue data directly from DNWStats.com and displays it with your listing, as well as a calculation of the price multiple:

You can also automatically add stats to your listings on Carrillo’s other marketplaces, including the popular BargainDomains.com, as well as PremiumDomains.com, flipping.co, and Catchy.com.

Look for other sites and services to integrate DNW Certified Stats in the future.

BargainDomains Switches to Auction Format, Catchy.com Gets Catchy

April 21, 2010bargaindomains.com, catchy.com, Domain Sales, Domaining, Domaining.com, Domainnamewire, francois carrilloComments Off on 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

November 19, 2009bargaindomains.com, Domain Sales, Domaining, Domaining.com, Domainnamewire, francois carrillo, valuate.comComments Off on 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.

Valuate.com’s solid user interface gives quick access to domain data.

Valuate.com domain appraisalIt’s been a couple weeks since Cybertonic, the same company behind Domaining.com, launched Valuate.com in beta. Valuate uses Estibot 2.0 in the background to create domain appraisals.

Now, I’m not usually a fan of automated appraisals. I think I’ll hit the next person who tells me a domain sold below market value “because Estibot says it’s worth x”. But there’s something to be said for the underlying stats used in automated appraisals. The way Valuate.com pulls them together in a simple interface makes it a valuable tool.

There are three ways to get a valuation on Valuate.com. One is to cut-and-paste your list of domains into the input box at Valuate.com. Another, which could be very useful, is a Google Gadget that lets you just click a button when you’re visiting a domain to get the valuation. And finally, you can just type valuate.com/domain.com to get an appraisal. (This is how I usually visit DomainTools.com.)

After entering your domain(s), Valuate.com quickly offers a valuation of the domains. But beyond the valuation, you get one click access to Google Trends for the domain’s terms, DomainTools.com, Archive.org, Adwords preview, and more. You also get data on traffic rank, Adwords competition, and cost per click.

Valuate.com doesn’t change my opinion about automated appraisals. But it’s one of the first systems I’ve seen with a simple, clean interface that gives quick access to the real value in such tools — the underlying data.
