Domain Name Sales Activity – 19th December to 15th January

We’re back from the Christmas holidays and excited for another year of domain name developments. In 2016, Netfleet achieved several new records and intend to build on this momentum throughout 2017. Our clients also shared in this success with us last year, securing several high profile names along the way. If the last few weeks are anything to go by, domainers and businesses have a lot to look forward to. Our highest selling domain from the last four weeks was trucksforsale.com.au. The name fetched a total sum of $16,549.45, with its value derived from the nature of the name – […]

Domain Name Sales Activity – 5th December to 18th December

With Christmas less than a week away, it would appear that a couple of our clients have secured themselves an early present in the form of some excellent domain names. As we noted in our last premium domain name sales report, the trend has again focused on keyword domains. In this edition of our sales report, one of our clients was lucky enough to secure themselves two premium domain names. The registrant, a sole trader based in Sydney, was able to attain sofas.com.au as well as homewares.com.au. In the case of the former, the name was registered for a final […]

Your Chance to Claim Gold

Every so often, here at Netfleet we’re involved in the sale of a domain name that we know will capture the attention of the domain name community. This time, we’re confident our latest high profile domain gold.com.au, will eclipse several records. What makes us so confident? First of all, a name of this nature has broad appeal to a wide range of people. Not only would domainers be eyeing the sale with a view to make an investment in a potentially lucrative asset, but end users would also stand to gain from access to this web address. Besides gold being […]

Domain Name Sales Activity – 7th November to 4th December

As we roll into December and prepare to farewell another year, we’ve seen business owners take a more subdued approach to domaining. In their place however, domainers have remained engaged and picked up some great value names. The trend this time saw keyword domains take centre stage, with descriptive titles appearing to take the fancy of domainers. We detail the registrations here in our latest premium domain name sales report. Starting our list this time around, audiologist.com.au was scooped up for $1,755.55. The new registrant, a Queensland-based full service online marketing solution business, will no doubt have attained this name […]

Understanding the WHOIS Search Service

One of the common features available to domain registrants all around the world is the WHOIS search service. The service, operated as a separate repository for each geographical location, is akin to a localised registry for domains. Behind the functional operation of the local service is AusRegistry, who administer and maintain the system on behalf of all users. More specifically, registrants’ details are collected by their respective registrar, who then pass the data onto AusRegistry. Users may look up the contact details of a domain name registrant which they are interested in. In a local context, this includes all the […]

Keeping Your Domain Name Secure

In today’s day and age, where cyber security is becoming an increasingly attentive point for business owners and operators around the world, it’s important that domain registrants take the necessary measures to keep their domain name secure. While we often think of business security being restricted to financial integrity and the physical premises of an establishment, the effect of a domain name falling into the wrong hands can have a profound impact – even if only for a short period of time! The problem isn’t just restricted to big-name brands either, with the rationale behind such incidents often attributable to […]

What’s the Difference Between a Domain Name Reseller and Registrar?

When considering the domain name marketplace, there are several active participants. In the past, we’ve discussed the role of the au Domain Administration (auDA) in supporting the functional operation of the domain space within Australia. And of course, you’d be familiar with the concept of registrants – otherwise, you probably wouldn’t be reading this! However, two other participants are sometimes the source of confusion, particularly among industry newcomers. These are, domain name resellers and domain name registrars. So then, how does one differentiate between the two? First of all, let us consider domain name resellers. Resellers act as an intermediary […]

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 Sales Activity – 26th September to 16th October

After a three week hiatus, we’re back with the latest update regarding premium domain name sales through Netfleet. This edition covers four names which passed the $1,000 barrier, and as always, our thoughts are included for each domain. Edging out its peers to take the honours for the top selling domain was yq.com.au. Picked up by a private domain name investor, the name is likely to have gathered attention due to its two letter composition. While the letter mix isn’t perhaps as lucrative as some other two-letter combinations, domainers and registrants are typically drawn to a name like this because […]

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 […]
