  • bitcoin.for.sale , bitcoins.for.sale , everything.for.sale ... all $25/yr

    All .FOR.SALE domains are $25/yr (except about 10) - just type them into your browser to see if they are unregistered


    A few people have mentioned there are no contact details - sorry
    You can DM me here https://twitter.com/NamesOfLondon or here https://www.linkedin.com/in/james-r-c-stevens/
    You can register the names here http://names.of.london/ - there is also a contact form that opens a ticket
    Email questions to registry/@/names.of.london

    We also now have webchat on the website - so come over for a chat, or leave a message if nobody's available.

    To answer some common question
    1) Yes these are real domains - bitcoin.for.sale is technically identical to ibm.co.uk
    2) Yes you can use your own Name Servers. We also offer DNS hosting (with a WebUI) - the default is web & mail forwarding, but you don't have to keep it.
    3) We web forward with a 301 PERMANENT REDIRECT - this pools all your search raking into the destination domain, https://support.google.com/webmaster...er/93633?hl=en

    Neat the way you have it set up but IMO the price needs to be a lot cheaper.

      $25 USD / $2 per month is a fair price for end user

    Thanks for your feedback, and positive comment - its always good to hear other opinions.


    Personally, I really like the concept of domain names as natural language phrases. IMHO, they look so much better than the geeky computer code we're used to seeing - mostly for historical reasons.

    If domains had started as natural language, nobody would be interested in the geeky code names - but dot-COM has a special place in history, and that will never change.

    For the time being, selling fewer at a "higher" price makes a more sustainable business model. But $25 per year (tax deductible) is actually pretty reasonable for a business - especially considering some of these names come with hundred of targetted type-in visitors a week.

    In total I get about 2000 visits a day from 1500 visitors. Mobile users like these phrases, as they are easier to type (& say) on a mobile device.

    Unfortunately, at (say) Shirts.for.Sale, I'm getting the people who want to /buy/ a shirt, not the people who sell the shirts - it can be a bit frustrating as I don't sell shirts!



    As XYZ experienced with their $0.01 promotion, where almost everybody failed to renew (all 3 million), playing on price alone does not always guarantee success.

    Growing the numbers slowly, but surely, with a loyal (& renewing) customer base is better for me, and my customers, as it means I can reassure them I will be here to support them & provide service into the future.

      I would just add - you also have to take into account that, apart from about 10, there are no other premium names in FOR.SALE - all other FOR.SALE names are $25/yr

      Premium ones are those like HOME.FOR.SALE & HOMES.FOR.SALE which get about 2500 visitors a week between them - it would be hard to dispute they have a special value.

      And renewal prices are fixed for the lifetime of the domain - so long as it never expires, the renewal price is fixed - even if it changes hands

        Good job with the sub domain sale, but with the .forsale extension being live, I don't see you getting much traction from a real end user base. As a small business, keep at it.

          It is a new product/concept so it is an uphill task, but we see 1500 to 2000 visitors a day from people just typing the phrases in - mostly from the US (55%) & UK (30%), and mostly on mobile 49% iOS, 41% Android - this alone gives the phrases a significant value in terms of both direct traffic & seo boost (if the site has Google Analytics enabled).

          If Google knows how much type-in traffic you are getting this can increase your ranking. Without Google Analytics installed, Google will never know about the direct traffic.

          If you want a URL shortener for your eBay Nike shop, then http://Nikes.for.Sale/ works pretty well.

          We also own quite a few brand names like http://Just.for.Men/ http://Links.of.London/ or http://City.of.London/ .... there is one brand I'd love to get, but currently it's not on the market due to registry rules - but I hope to get it one day, so I'm not sharing its name - sorry.

            suits.forsale -> $7700 - per year every year (new & renew)
            suits.for.sale -> $25 per year every year (new & renew), guaranteed for the lifetime of the domain

            "a lot cheaper" depends on what you are comparing it with

            "Add one dot and save yourself a lot" ... also, personally, I prefer "for.sale" as its more human.

              You may be right, but sometimes you've just got to give it a go to see if it will fly.

              I used to be CTO at dot-IO for ten years, so I do all the tech stuff keeping the running costs very low - just need to make sure I can pay the mortgage & put food on the table
