    Nice little bonus...just this minute received an e-mail from fabulous advising that one of my domains (that I no longer wanted and didn't renew) was picked up for $69 (namejet's entry-level bid) when it finally dropped.

    The commission has been added to my account there, which I will apply to renewals of other domains. Normally would have received nothing for domains let go.

    This thread is in no way an indication of how well this program has been received by our customers. Over the last 2-3 days about 75% of my time has been fielding emails regarding this new service and granting access to accounts.

    I don't have any stats, but I would guess that over 100 people have already signed up.

    Cheers,

    Excellent news Mike. It's a great service and who knows, a few people might value a name highly and bid accordingly, and the take home payout for the former owner could be quite a tidy amount.

    Just finished running some stats on the Expiring Domains Services program, which I thought some may find interesting:

    Mean: $86.08
    Median: $69.00
    Mode: $69.00
    Biggest sale: $1011.00

    * Note: Network wide stats.

    And below are some examples of domains we have sold from our own portfolio:

    DeerHuntingLodge.com - $360.00
    ESolarPanels.com - $367.00
    AvoidingStress.com - $445.00
    NebraskaBailBond.com - $565.00
    CognitiveBehavorialTherapy.com - $586.00
    NewYorkElevators.com - $670.00
    SportBetsOnline.com - $690.00

    Hi Joe,

    Newly registered and transferred domains are automatically added to the program and will be listed shortly after they expire.

    Let me know if you have any other questions.

    We've had continued success with this program, both on our own portfolio and third parties. If any one is interested in participating in it, feel free to contact me directly.

    Cheers,

    Mike

    How much will you pay for that hookup?
    Your domains are never completely worthless. They can always be used as a bad example.

    We're actually looking to expand our partnership with NameJet to include non-expiring domains.

    I will be sure to keep everyone updated of any developments.
