Not bad for a closed bidder pool. Do you know how many people were competing for it?

It was a claimed TM during sunrise registration. I've noticed
many of these dropping over the last couple months. I wonder
if Mtld has a hand in this?

i seriously doubt it.. i also doubt the person that droped it even knows what pool.com is... people drop domains for a variety of reasons.


1. decided they dont need it anymore (and dont realize its worth money or even know where to begin selling it)

2. death

3. forgot to renew it - possibly due to invalid email or a person no longer employed by a certain company.. i would imagine this happens often with TMs.


also, im not sure if some of these .mobi TM registrants realize that the renewal price is not $150 (or whatever the initial sunrise registration price was)

As far as I know it's the highest amount paid for a dropped dot mobi domain - pls correct me if I'm wrong.
Very often a higher price is paid at the drop auctions than could be achieved by a domainer selling independently - what's your opinion on this one? If someone on this board owned the name or one of the drop catchers on this board caught the name, how much do you think they could have sold it for in today's market? (presuming a domainer to domainer sale)

Absolutely true, for any domain extension -- people bidding on drops will often go much higher than you would generally be able to sell the same name for on the boards, or even at Sedo auction. It's that competitive feeling that you're getting something that others can't get in on (if it's a private, backorder auction)...the thrill of the hunt.

i was going after the name and was thinking about pricing it at $500-750... i actually would have expected the name not to sell on this forum for what i would have priced it at, but figured i'd try anyway and just hold it if there were no takers.. it was one of the more decent ones that dropped that night.. unfortunately it just made pool some money instead of poor ol' me. :(

its final price prob noone would have bought for here but we all have enough names. its worth xxx,xxx of course to the right busines model

mobile.co.uk sold for 120k
properly developed any site with this keyword and a gtld would make a lot of money

i still think it would have got snatched up for about 2.5k on here

I'm sure you'd have got a buyer on this forum in that range. There is of course still potential to make a good profit on top the $4600 paid, but time and patience will be required.

i dont know, forum sales are funny sometimes.. ive ***ered up some pretty good deals in the past on the forums with no takers only to have em sell for double or triple at sedo auction.. i think a lot of it has to do with the competitive bidding thing.. auction fever, etc..
