other than engineering.org which was somewhere in low 6 figures I do believe, what has sold for a nice amount in these extensions?

I sold a .net for $25 several months ago. I think that was my high water mark with that extension. :)

Turned down $15k for Dog.net a couple of months ago, does that count?

Maybe should have sold but now starting to develop it!

Where were you in 1995,1996,1997,1998,1999 when .NET ruled the world?

Oh, I forgot. You were selling those dark colored round vinyl things called records. Oh how "cutting edge" that was :)

Even today, any great .net will probably outshine your great .info or .biz.

So, shush plz (bah)

Yes, net's have lost much of their lustre over the past couple yrs and are now relegated to trailing the field, with .org and .us jockeying for place and show coming around the clubhouse turn and com leading by many lengths.

Seriously though.

Speculators will pay up to and exceeding $750 USD for a run of the mill, 3 letter.net with good letters.

And up to $5k for a 2 letter.net

Are these prices justified by any end user sales?

Or just blind speculation?

Cappuccino you are a veritable fountain of misinformation. I sold CD's through the years you mentioned. They are made from aluminum not vinyl and in fact they were very cutting edge for their time. The next time you make a feeble attempt to insult someone at least trying getting your facts straight.

Also, I didn't know .net ruled the world during those years. I could have sworn it was .com. Guess I was mistaken.

I have a handful of .NET that I plan to develop two of which I paid $$$$ at pool for development potential. It is not an extension that I speculate and buy names in normally. Sold a two worder here on the forum recently for $XXX. I believe that I own more .US/.INFO/.BIZ/.WS than .NET I think it could easily be the sleeper cell middle ground between .COM and the newer extensions and easily overlooked. I am even reconsidering some of my .ORG purchases here of late for commecercial sites despite the keyword strength. At least when I start painting the canvas here in the development sector that I will have many colors to choose from. But do not be mistaken people are a lot more familiar with NET/ORG than some of these new extensions and that right now (for a short time) does give some advantage but it also allows them to confuse it with .COM instead of standing out.

Paid $2000 for a .org with no plans to resell.

Paid $3000 for a .net and resold for $5000.

Cheers

Other than three letter and two char/letter .nets you can't give them away (at least not now).

There’s no need for .net anymore, not now we have .com for big businesses, .info for information, .biz for smaller businesses that can’t get or afford the .com and finally org for organisations. .net is a dying breed soon to be extinct, IMO.

Cheers

The most I've paid for a .net is $3,000. Can't name the name, but the domain's definitely going to be developed - probably in the next 6 months.
