Hey there!

I may be repeating myself, but I want to bring up a topic that interests me - the actual experience and speed of selling domain names through auctions, websites, and domain stores.

I'm curious about the likelihood of a good domain being sold for at least $1,000 or euros and how long domains with such a price can remain unsold at auctions. Has anyone had sales for such an amount or higher?

For instance, Sedo has numerous one-word domains with the word "computer" in different country TLDs and new TLDs like trade and technology. Take, for example, a domain that's perfect for a company that sells computers. It's priced at only 2000 euros (not counting advertising), but it has been on the market since 2016 and still hasn't been sold. There are many similar domains with the word "computer" on Sedo.

So, how quickly are these domains usually sold? And if they're not selling, what domains are people buying instead?

Lastly, I'm wondering how feasible it is to sell a .fr domain on Sedo if it's not getting any traction in international zones. Any thoughts on this?


The aforementioned section contains a comprehensive repository of valuable and current information in addition to various arguments, stances, and resolutions. It would require a substantial amount of time, possibly weeks or months, to acquaint oneself with the content.

Gaining hands-on expertise is equally critical, and in our industry, that knowledge can only be acquired by making investments. Nonetheless, even a small amount of money can be sufficient to test the waters.

However, there is no universal plan for purchasing a $100 domain name and swiftly selling it for $10,000 - what domain name to buy, where to buy it, to whom to sell it, and how to sell it are all unanswered questions. Such a recipe does not exist, hence nobody can provide it. Similarly, there are no specific odds to assess.

Learning from others' accomplishments and mistakes, accumulating personal experiences, and earning one's initial bottle of champagne (or at least a beer) can be exhilarating and thrilling, but they are also intended for enthusiasts.


Finding a domain auction on the internet is a straightforward process. These auctions provide buyers with an opportunity to purchase domains of varying prices, ages, and structures, such as only a domain or a domain with a website attached. Domain transactions are becoming more popular, and significant profits can be made if done correctly. However, it should be noted that success favors those who are well-versed in the industry, and relying only on luck may not be sufficient.

At domain auctions, potential buyers should focus on indicators such as the domain name's beauty, site citation index, and website design, whereas potential visitors should evaluate site traffic statistics, content, and maintenance costs. Unfortunately, these critical indicators are often overlooked at domain auctions. While the beauty of a domain name may be essential in some cases, it rarely correlates with its cost.

To avoid losing money, it is important to understand which indicators are most valuable before purchasing a domain through an auction. Before buying a domain, it is crucial to consider the benefits of acquiring it versus registering a new domain. Finally, it is important to note that a domain should be treated as a business tool rather than a mere hobby.


The actual experience and speed of selling domain names can vary based on several factors. When it comes to the likelihood of selling a good domain for at least $1,000 or euros, it's important to consider the market demand, the uniqueness of the domain name, and the target audience. Premium domain names, especially those that are short, memorable, and relevant to a specific industry, have a higher chance of commanding a substantial price.

Domains with a price tag of $1,000 or more can remain unsold at auctions for a significant period, especially if they don't match the current market trends or if the target audience is limited. Factors such as the length of the domain's existence, its history, and any associated branding efforts can also influence the speed of the sale.

In the case of Sedo and the domains with the word "computer" in various TLDs, it's crucial to assess the demand for such domains in the market. While "" may seem like an ideal domain for a company selling computers, the pricing and the length of time it has been on the market indicate that the demand for this particular domain might not be as high as expected. It's essential to analyze the reasons behind the lack of sale – whether it's related to the domain's visibility, marketing efforts, or changing industry trends.

Domains are usually sold more quickly when they align with current market trends, business needs, or branding strategies. If certain domains with specific keywords are not selling, it could indicate a shift in buyer preferences or a change in industry focus. Understanding the types of domains that are currently in demand can provide valuable insights into the preferences of potential buyers.

As for selling a .fr domain on Sedo, the international visibility and appeal of the domain can indeed impact its saleability. While .fr domains are associated with France, they can still attract international buyers if they cater to a global audience or offer unique value. Marketing efforts, keyword relevance, and the overall appeal of the domain can play a significant role in attracting potential buyers.
