I own a number of SharePoint-related domain names that I’m not going to use, and I’d like to offer these to the SharePoint community first, before I go into the open market with them and auction them off to whoever wants them.
Over the years, I’ve had great plans for stuff I want to do in SharePoint. Some of the ideas have turned into USP Journal issues, others into products, frameworks, or services, others have just been sitting there in the back of my mind, waiting for a day when I suddenly find myself with plenty of time and nothing else to do.
I come up with ideas all the time, often in rapid succession. However, I have the attention span of… Ooh, squirrel!
What I mean is that I rarely have time or the attention span to write down the ideas, come up with reasonable business plans, or anything like that. However, I always have easy access to register domain names, so that’s what I do as a reminder of the ideas I have.
By now, I have over a hundred domain names, many of which I’m not going to use, and I’d like to offer these domain names to the SharePoint community first before I try to sell them elsewhere. I figure you guys and gals will probably treat them better than I have.
If you like to get one of these domains, here’s your chance.
At or around May 3, I’ll start setting up an auction solution and start selling off whatever domains remain. Bidding will start at US$500 per domain with a Buy Now price US$1,500. If you like to pick up one of these domains right now, however, you can do so for US$750. I’ll even give you a discount for three domains for a total price of US$1,500.00.
Update: Domains are now available through SEDO for $1,390 each. Contact me with offers above $1,000.
Terms of Sale
Before you decide, though, please read the following carefully:
To buy a domain, simply comment in the form below or send me an email at furuknap<[at]>gmail.com with the name you want to buy and your name and email address. I will not publish such comments, but I will contact you soon after to verify your information and start the transfer.
After I have received payment, I will transfer the domain to you and mark the domain as sold. If you have a GoDaddy account, this usually takes just a few minutes.
For settlement, I prefer Bitcoins or Litecoins, but I can accept bank payments to a US bank (Wells Fargo). With Bitcoin or Litecoin, payment confirmation happens within minutes, whereas with a bank transfer, it may take days.
If you do not have Bitcoins or Litecoins, and you don’t know how to pay to a US bank (and it can be tricky), you can pay through PayPal. However, there are some caveats with paying with PayPal.
If I do not know you already and you are not a highly reputable person in the SharePoint community, I will hold the domain name for 90 days after the payment has been received. This is due to PayPal’s policy of siding with the buyer in sales of electronic goods in case of a charge back for credit card based purchases. If I transfer the domain to you and you decide to scam me by filing a fraudulent chargeback, I have no recourse for getting the domain back.
I decide alone if you are known to me or a highly reputable person in the SharePoint community.
During those 90 days, I can either manage the domain for you or provide you with a login to manage the domain yourself. Only after 90 days will I transfer ownership of the domain to you.
I really want to trust everyone, but sadly I’ve been burned by people up to no good.
All sales are final. No refunds will be given for any reason, except if I am unable for whatever reason to transfer the domain to you.
Are we clear on these terms? Good, here is
Domain names marked pending have received a purchase request but have yet to clear payment. Please check back in a few days to see if the domain is marked as sold.
Note that I have highlighted some interesting names for your attention only; highlighting is not an indication of any status. A sold domain is marked as (SOLD) and a pending domain is marked as (PENDING)
Well, what are you waiting for? Fill in the comment field below or send me an email to request the domain you want! I don’t have all day, you know.
