What to Consider if You Change Your Domain Name

Previously, we’ve discussed the merits associated with multiple domain names, including pointing secondary names to redirect to your primary domain. However, there is also another situation registrants should pay attention to, especially business owners. In this particular instance, we’re referring to registrants who opt to change their domain name and no longer retain the old name. What many business registrants fail to recognise, is that their domain name is often part of the brand they are operating. That is, customers know and associate a particular domain with the company, even if the two are not necessarily aligned. In essence, you […]

Domain Name Renewal Considerations

As we’ve detailed in the past, domain names are not viewed as assets under ownership. This stems from the fact that when a registrant purchases a domain name, they are merely being granted the licensing rights to use the domain in question – for two years. So then, at the end of the two year period, what do registrants need to be mindful of? First of all, it’s not uncommon for domain names to be assigned to automatically renew as the expiration date nears. This can be verified either through the user control panel available via a registrar’s website, or […]

Domain Name Sales Activity – 29th August to 11th September

Spring is upon us, and with a change of seasons it appears some business owners were keen to secure themselves a new domain through Netfleet. The last fortnight saw three premium domain names sell for in excess of $1,000, with each representing a high quality purchase at great prices. Our highest selling domain across the last fortnight went to openpay.com.au, which sold on the 2nd of September for a final sum of $3,679.45. A fitting purchase, the new owner in instance is none other than Openpay Pty Ltd, an online payment facilitation business that also operates under the name Jam […]

Domain Name Sales Activity – 24th August to 28th August

Securing its place as one of the most active weeks for sales at Netfleet, we’ve seen significant interest for expired domains. In fact, in less than a week, we finalised sales for six premium domain names over $1,000! Looking back at the last 11 days, we’re averaging approximately one premium domain name sale per day! This means, if you’re chasing a particular domain, you’ll have to act decisively to secure it. Making its way to the top of the list for the week, financeaustralia.com.au was sold on the 26th of August for $3,459.45. Its new owner, Tan & Tan Australia […]

Domain Registrations: Patience Doesn’t Necessarily Pay Off

We’ve heard it countless times over the years. Individuals are reluctant to spend a little bit more to secure their domain early through our drop catching service. Our catching service allows users to nominate the domain they are looking for, before our technology takes over and catches it as soon as it expires (with a 94% success rate). Instead, many people are prepared to risk it by waiting. They say: “I want the domain but I think I’ll take my chances and register it later!” In a passive market, this wouldn’t be an issue. However, the industry for domain names […]

Domain Restrictions: Can I Really Use it?

In our last educational article, we brought you all the information surrounding the eligibility requirements for each of the major TLDs in Australia. One of the important points we highlighted was that while a domain might be available, an individual or business isn’t always eligible to use it. In a similar manner, the .au Domain Administration (auDA) also impose restrictions on the composition and process with which one can register a domain name license – meaning, certain characteristics must be fulfilled.   General Rules Second level domain names (2LDs) are categorised as either ‘open’ or ‘closed’. Closed domains are restricted […]

HomeLoanCalculator.com.au sells for $33,001

Today we saw the auction and subsequent snapping of the domain HomeLoanCalculator.com.au at Netfleet.com.au for $33,001 after it was allowed to expire by the previous owner. According to Google the exact search phrase “home loan calculator” is searched for in Australia 33,100 times a month.  Meaning it sold for basically $1 for every monthly search, which looks like a fantastic deal when you consider that a click for this very competitive search term is worth about $5,65. It is worth remembering that with expired domains the buyer only had 24 hours to made a decision and to get involved so […]

Single Domain Page with Fixed Bid Option

Our developers have been busy, and just completed their latest task on Netfleet, and rolled out a single domain view, with fixed bid ability for our Snapper Auctions. You’ll notice on the Snapper Auctions page each domain now has a hyperlink to a single page view. This shows the domain broken down in to it’s simplest view, whilst having all the information you would ever require, just a short click away on the same page. A big change for this view is fixed bidding. Traditionally, all bids were proxy/automatic bids on our Snapper Auctions, however in the single domain view, […]

Creditcards.net.au sets a new .net.au record

Today saw the release of the premium generic keyword domain Creditcards.net.au. In a furious public auction today this domain reached the .net.au record setting price of $22,002, surpassing the recently announced sale of the closely related Creditcard.net.au which was sold late last year for $18,200. This is now the highest publicly recorded sale of a .net.au for a domain name only. Showing that for premium generic keyword domains a .net.au is still a domain worth owning. Netfleet was pleased to snap this domain for our client. It will be interesting to see what they do with this domain name as […]
