A moniker auction at the Internext show in Miami on Friday, listed among it’s sales, Shemales.net for $60,000. Now given that Shemales.com sold recently for a whacking $500,000 this might seem like a good deal but is a .net domain worth anything, even with a good name, if your not doing fuck all with it?
The buyers of these domains tend to buy them up – and then sit on them, possibly with a little traffic redirecting, they’re not building sites and they’re not out to create traffic with them (which would seem to be the most obvious thing to do). It’s a bit of a shame as a mega-site at Shemales.com would have to do well (even at shemales.net).
$60,000 ? I think the money would be better spent on a lesser known domain and then try to get traffic or build a site. I just don’t get it.
