    have to agree on iq-test.info, probably a good example of one of those hard to understand (and low probability) enduser sales.
    GamesRoom.com, Possum.com, Arithmetic.com on greatdomains auction, low reserves, priced to sell!

    Silly Duke,

    Dollars made from .INFO sales are not as valuable as dollars made from .COM sales. Say, for example, you sell $1,000 dollars worth of .INFOs and take the cash into a store to buy something. The clerk will look at you and your money funny.. and say something like "Saaaaaay... are those dollars you made from an .INFO sale? The price for those groceries just doubled for you, man." It is sad but true. In fact, some peopel predict that dollars made from selling .INFOs will have no value at all in a short while. If you have made money selling .INFOs, you had better spend those dollars soon, or use them to buy .COMs to redeem their value... otherwise those dollars will be useless in the near future. There are infobia vaccines, but the supply is running out, so infobia is likely to be quite widespread for the remainder of the season.

    My guess is that the relationship between population is not exactly a linear one... I think value drops off rapidly below a certain level (not sure where... perhaps 20,000?) and grows at a non-linear level for certain prominent cities (of which Chicago would be one).

    I must say I that I am surprised to see Austin.biz going for more than Austin.info. There once were restrictions on .biz with respect to being a site -- anyone know if there was a site or business associated with Austin.biz or was it just the domain?

    I just came back from a trip and our internet access is down at home so my access is limited here for a couple days. I sincerely hope that none of the old friends who seem to have gotten into some off kilter exchanges in this thread take any lasting offense from it... life is too short and exchanges too precious for that. I am begining to wonder whether there is something odd in the air or the water or moon phase or something during the past couple weeks that has been affected forum exchanges adversely. *sigh* If a couple of you would like me to edit out some things that you said for the sake of peace and brotherhood, I would be willing to do so... if OK with those involved. Or... apart from that, perhaps I may just enter a plea for an extra measure of tolerance, forgiveness, and good humor as we enter 2004.

    In any event, best wishes for a great 2004 to Duke, Generic, GPMgroup, Mole, JuniperPark, Speculator and all the other blokes and lassies who intersect in the virtual twister we call DomainState

    Austin.biz has actually been sold at Sedo and the money changed hands. Austin.info is still in escrow at Afternic and that sale has not been completed yet (just checked on it again today*). A lot of the details are in the new weekly Domain Sales report at Domain Name Journal which was just posted a few minutes ago:

    Domain Name Journal Domain Sales Report

    *Keep in mind that Afternic posts a sale on their site when an auction ends (not when the domain has actually gone through Escrow and changed hands). We don't report them as sales until they have actually been completed, because all auction sites have "sales" that frequently fall through due to bogus bidders.

    People get busted for jaywalking in a ghost town more often than that rule is enforced.

    I think the seller at Afternic just accepted far too little for his domain. Austin is a really cool, constantly growing city and the capitol of a major state (not to mention all of the people named Austin). I think the domain was worth much more than he or she let it go for.

    I can vouch for vancouver.info and screening.info as we just reported them earlier today and the WhoIs information confirms the recent ownership transfers. As far as I know we were the only party the sellers reported those sales to late last night.

    Might I ask what your source is for the data on the other four domains and if they were really sold at these prices how long ago it was?

    There has been no change in the status of Druckerpatronen.info since May 2003, no change in Parking.info for nearly two months, no change in snowboard.info since August of 2003 and no change in bdi.info since the year 2002!

    Last night, in my weekly conversation with Sedo about their latest sales coming out of escrow (vancouver.info for instance), they told me NewYork.info has just been paid for. Now we just have to wait for the seller to transfer it to the buyer and it will be official. Could be the #1 sale reported in the entire industry next week.

    Very nice sale Tariq, though not exactly a "recent" sale as this thread is titled. I'm sure you have many more like that ahead of you.

    P.S. Also, thanks for the tip on your sale of screening.info this past week. You COULD leave a little money in the marketplace for the rest of us you know!

    ... And that Chris guy..

    I would also like to know how these sales are arrived at and determined current.
    Well of course I can only speak for Domain Name Journal. Every Tuesday we report the sales that have been completed in the previous 7 day period only. That way you are up to date every week and are assured of getting the very latest information. That's why I was a little annoyed when someone stated earlier in this thread that we didn't have all of the recent sales, then quoted sales from several months ago (or longer) as examples of the "recent" sales we didn't report.

    Maybe I'm being overly defensive but we have put a lot of work into this project and secured the cooperation of the key sales venues in the industry to produce that report every 7 days. I don't like having that work "lifted" without proper attribution or insinuations made that we are missing something that we are not.

    Now that I have off my chest I can go back to being Mr. Nice Guy.

Unfortunately many people don't realize this and appreciate it. No mater what you do the data will never be perfect but that's not the point. The point is that you have at least exposed this information and are consistantly doing so at consistant sampling points ..... And are providing this info for free ..... To *EXPECT* more is obscene ....
    Thanks ILI, I appreciate that. Of course we're not 100% altruistic. By offering the information at no charge we are "paid" with increased traffic that in turn can be turned in to compensation (I am more amazed by DomainState which has provided its services at no charge and at the same time foregone the opportunity to draw much deserved revenue from their increased traffic. I hope they don't expect me to live up that high standard)!

    It's not uncommon for people to not think about giving proper attribution to sources of information - I'm sure I have been guilty of it myself from time to time. So, it's not a big deal, but I think it's worth bringing the issue up once every few years or so just as a reminder. I'm sure I'll be more careful about it myself having pulled the issue out of the closet again.

    I'm not upset gpmgroup and I certainly wouldn't want you to stop posting. As you noted your intentions were honorable. Stick around, it won't take you long to catch me in a slipup you can call me out on!

    Just for the record, we did not have Basel.info because that sale happened back in August (our column started in October and we only report the previous 7 days). I don't recall having FAQ.info which is odd because it was at Sedo and they give us all of their sales each week. They may have inadvertently left that one off their report. I see the WhoIs changed Dec. 2 so they normally would have told us about it at that time.

    If anyone wants to quote material from our site I have no problem with that - I just appreciate having the information that is used attributed to the source it came from. I guess this issue was at the front of my mind because someone on another forum got in trouble this week for lifting whole pages of material verbatim from a site and posting it on the forum as his own. The original author happened to see it and let everyone know about it. I thought it might be a good time to put this issue in front of people just as a gentle reminder.

    Nothing at all wrong with that of course. It just helps to know where the news is coming from, for several reasons.

    Aside from acknowledging someone else's work, it allows the reader to decide whether or not the info is coming from a source that is credible. For example if you post that "Martians Have Landed" - according to the National Enquirer, I wouldn't get real excited about that. But if you post "Martians Have Landed" - according to the New York Times, then I might want to look into it a little further.
