Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I recently came across a name I want, and when you visit the site it says this name is for sale. They even have a form on the page to request the price. But they won't respond! They have a telephone number to call, but then their automated system puts you on terminal hold.
This is not an unsolicited request... they stated want to sell the name. But I guess they don't want to quote a price because they're afraid they'll undersell it. I can understand not wanting to name a price when the inquiry is unsolicited, but for pete's sake, if you want to make a business out of selling domains, then come up with a price when it's put on the market!
It just has a form to fill out with my name and email address, or a number to call.
They claim to have 700,000 names for sale, so this is not an individual hoping to win the domain name lottery. But regardless, this is just so typical. Hence the rant.
I know I have listed some of my names at very low "minimum offer" prices and no asking price to see how many offers I would receive. It's an easy way to tell how interested the market is in the name. Of course, lots of interest doesn't mean they will pay a high price but it does help.
