Domain investors can filter inventory to find bargains.
GoDaddy has released a beta search tool to help domain investors find good values within Afternic’s inventory.
Think of it as “expireddomains.net lite” for Afternic’s inventory. Among the search and filtering functions:
- Search terms
- Category, e.g., animals, dictionary verbs, dictionary nouns
- Character length
- Number of extensions registered for the SLD
- Exclude hyphens, numbers, special characters
I’ve used the tool for a few hours and found some good bargains I purchased. While most domains are priced well by domain investors, there are opportunities if you know what you’re looking for. Also, a lot of inventory is added by end users using GoDaddy’s List for Sale feature, so you might find some “mispriced” domains.
I have many other thoughts and feature ideas for the tool, but you’ll have to wait until Monday’s Domain Name Wire Podcast to learn more. Joe Styler, who now manages Domain Academy, is my guest.
