I've transferred virtually all of my dollars into my Name Silo account, and I'm saving those for renewals, transfers, and extra special registrations. This means that I won't be posting any "premium" names that I've hand registered for a while. Bitcoin is continuing to rise, and thisis a bit of a nuisance as I wantedto sell name to build my Bitcoin balance. I think it will continue to rise, and so I'm going to focus on selling for a while.
I had an enquiry via my whois privacy protection, and it is a name that I bought in an expiry auction a couple of months ago. It's got some age, and some inbound links, but I've never hosted the name, so I have no idea of the traffic. I've now hosted it with a holding page, and I'll add it to the NS market place with a BIN price - we'll see how that goes, it's not a bad name for a blog.
I noticed that one of my names from 2004 has never been used. The name is Late Hotel Deals.com , and I intended to use this to promote travel services. HotelDeals.com sold for $172,000 a few years ago, and some of the auto-valuation bots value it at over $10,000, so it seems an ideal name for my Fox Foo project. I've signed up with atravel sponsor, so I'll add some ref links to the site I create. I suspect it will take some time to sell, so I might as well pick upa bit of income while I'm waiting. I've got one minor problem. The name is with my old registrar, and I don't want to wait the 5 days for the transfer to complete. Until it is transferred, I can't add it to the Name Silo market place. Fortunately the DNS points to one of my hosting plans, so I thought I would add the name to the hosting as a temporary measure, and redirect the traffic through an index page. I know there are other ways to do this, but I thought this would give me a chance to look at the traffic over the next few days. The page I set up is -
<title>Late hotel deals</title>
<!-- HTML meta refresh URL redirection -->
<p>Please wait while we transfer you to out new server at -
<a href="https://foxfoo.com/late-hotel-deals/">Fox Foo</a></p>
I may have to add an htaccess file to harvest the 404 traffic as well.
