So as I told you last month I finally made a list of all my domain name purchases from 1996 until today. I got some amazing deals. Some are hard to believe. But when you sell diamonds for a living and know nothing about diamonds or their characteristics, quality or rarity, that is a problem that plagues many in the domain name world. Some just have a 'Circumstance' that forces a sale at very low prices.
This is the story of a very cheap domain. Actually the CHEAPEST domain name of domains with substance. Yes, by now you may have guessed it is Cheapest.com. But that is only the half of it. The $62 price tag on Cheapest.com makes it one of the Cheapest dot com domains I bought from a third party.
I am sure the seller was a happy camper. Probably quadrupled his money! But domaining is much more than 'Markup'. Had the seller understood he was dealing with 'Diamonds' and taken the time to examine it, he would have realized that domain had great value. Instead of selling me a domain, he sold me an oil well.
Have a GREAT Day!
