Musings for the Week Ending on Jan 24th, 2015

As usual in point form, here are the highlights of the week:


  • Sales: Grab.in was sold for about $910. This sale is interesting since its a pretty old domain (2005) and a premium name. I was hoping that this would be easily a $2K+ name. Maybe the seller needed the money I guess. The buyer appears to be “Grab a Grub Services Pvt Ltd” from Mumbai. Looks like a GrubHub or UpranSpoon kind of setup. Also Out.in is on auction on SEDO. At the moment there are three bids and over three days to. Hopefully this should meet reserve.
  • LLL.IN Buyout: We are nearing a LLL.IN buyout. Just 25 short of absolute buyout. If we hit this landmark, it will be the third time that this will be occurring.
  • NIXI: NIXI is the Govt. organization that runs the .in Registry. It seems that after PM Narendra Modi’s “Make in India” initiative, NIXI is finally doing something to promote .in domains. I have received two emails about their latest FaceBook page. For those interested, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/nixiindia?ref=hl

Happy New Year !!

Happy New Year All.

Its been a while since I have blogged, but this year I plan to blog regularly (hopefully once a week) and basically summarize the week that went by.  So here we go.


  • Sales: We saw several sales for this week. Notably overstock.in on SEDO which sold for $2,300. The buyer is NOT Overstock.com, but some domainer from China. Other sale was musix.in also on SEDO for $1,000. Don’t know who the buyer is at the moment. There was a reported sale of aqi.in on Bodis. This is the first reported sale on Bodis.

 

  • INDRP: EasyToBook.co.in was hit with an INDRP and lost. Seems like a really bad decision IMO because the owner had responded back with concerns from complainant and raising questions himself/herself. Now, the complainant did not bother to respond after numerous emails, but to the shock of the owner , lost the domain. If the complainant doesn’t even bother to respond, there are various things you infer about them. Either they are not serious about getting the name, and/or they do not have answers for the questions or facts laid out by the owner.
