Use Valuate.com to Find Targeted End User Buyers for Domain Names

December 9, 2009Domain Sales, Domaining, Domainnamewire, valuate.comComments Off on Use Valuate.com to Find Targeted End User Buyers for Domain Names

Valuate.com quickly tells you which TLDs are registered.

In August I wrote about contacting owners of .net and .org domain names that you own the .com version of. It’s an easy way to find end users to buy your domain names. But my explanation of how to bulk check for domains you own with .net and .org taken was a bit involved.

So here’s a simpler solution: use Valuate.com. Today I plugged in about 50 domains I’m thinking about selling, and Valuate.com quickly came back with its results. The last three columns tell you if the .com, .net, and .org are registered:

valuate-otherextensions

As an added bonus, you’ll also get the other Valuate.com data including search results frequency, searches, traffic, advertiser competition, and average cost-per-click.

Not bad for a free service. Try it out to find end users that have registered other versions of your .com domain names. You might find a whale.

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.
