Good question... I dunno what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I find an useful answer. You should email the people at 123 reg as they probably know..
Just for the heck of it, I'm going to order sedo's appraisal service so one of these admins on the site will let me sell it in the high-value section. We all know Godaddy's express appraisal sucks by the way, and that's why I ordered the certified one (which, appearently, is not enough evidence to support that my HostGator is worth $1000 or above)...
Let's see what SEDO says. I've just received GoDaddy's certified appraisal for iPro.biz:.
$440.00 - $1,140.00.
I have put it on TDNAM with a sales price in the amount of $1,100. I'm very curious if there will be any offers..
I see - is that due to TDNAM or because the HostGator is overpriced?.
Congrats, newbie...GoDaddy loves you and your money..
Lots of good advice coming your way if you would heed it...
Thank god I found this forum - otherwise I would have made Mr. Parsons even richer. Another lesson learned!..
Both. TDNAM is not the idea end-user market place. And yes, the HostGator is overpriced. I personally wouldnt buy that HostGator for registration fee...
I see, I'll try SEDO for a change. It's interesting to finally get some feedback from a real person rather than from GD's appraisal e-mails:-)..
Welcome to NamePros... this is the place to Learn about Domaining!..
Thanks! I see that there is still a lot to learn. Cheers!..
Any paid appraisal service is a waste of $... with a few exceptions, like if you need an IRS accepted appraisal for a donation for tax purposes, you could get a moniker appraisal..
P.M. me any name and send me $10 and I'll gladly give you a proper, realistic appraisal for reseller value and/or end user value. I think nearly any experienced member of this forum would do that..
Beyond that, estibot.com seems to be the best automated appraisal I have tested...
Yes, Estibot definitely delivers more accurate compared to Leapfish:-) But in the end it's all just software generated. It also has a bit to do with luck, just like we have seen with 1-2-3.tv for example..
Thanks for your appraisal offer. I'll probably will get back to you sometime soon...
I just recieved a call from a 123 reg website that only buys high-value domains (buydomains.com) and am tying to call them back. So obviously, it's caught somebody's attention.
The main reason I think somebody would want to get a certified appraisal from a company like sedo or godaddy, is because it gives you a higher chance of selling on their site. I certainly would like to have a mod/senior member appraise domains of mine for only $10, but you can't offer me a "Certified Seal of Approval" like 123 reg can (lol)...
I used the go daddy certified appraisal for CLICKVIEWS.COM. Got back $560-$1450..
Seems low to me - what do you think?..
Well, estibot says $400 and that is usally inflated on the price. I'd say the appraisal 123 reg gave you sounds pretty accurate, maybe a bit more if you ask me; considering you have 0 backlinks, alexa rank, ppc score, and title...
