Ponyads.com Horse Domain Name for Sale

If you have ever tried registering a domain name then you know how difficult it is to find any good names left. Godaddy.com charges $10 to register each domain name, but you will have to be creative when finding a name since most of the good ones were taken years ago.
Horse Domain Name website

I started buying domain names over a decade ago, not because I thought they would have a monetary value in the future, but I actually envisioned creating websites for each domain name I registered. Believe me, if I knew what I know now I would have grabbed up a lot of good names back in the 90's and sold them for a nice profit over the years.

I currently own about 30 domain names and most of them are horse or equestrian related. I don't really know why I have been holding on to them so long, I originally had an idea for each horse domain name I registered, but I just don't have the time or energy to devote to these projects.

I decided to see what they are worth and place a few on Ebay. I started with ponyads.com and ponyads.net. I listed them together on Ebay for a starting bid of $12,000. I have never sold a domain name and honestly don't know if this is the proper venue, but we will see what happens. I know ponyads.com would be an excellent domain name for a company that sells horses, especially since it is easy to remember and brand. Why did I list it for $12,000? This is what it would take me to part with it since I have no problems holding on to it for another 10 years.

You can follow the auction using the widget to the left and see how it goes or you can view it directly on Ebay here. Do I expect it to sell? I'm certain this domain name has a value above zero, the problem with auctions like this is the value is solely based on how much someone is willing to pay. If the right equestrian business notices this auction they may find the price very attractive. We shall see.

$!2,000? Considering that pople can buy them for 10 each, I belive that is a bit much. I would start around $5000

We learned how hard it is to start a business and register a name. We had to be sure to choose a name that was no one has used. Now we are looking into getting two more names. One to use for our farm products and one to set aside in case we need to split the current company in the future.

That's right Contrary, what adds to the value of domain names is that only 1 of each domain name exists in the world and once you own it knowbody else can use it unless you sell it to them.

Good luck Jeff! I've sold a few nice domains in the past. Nothing over 5k though, so 12k would be a GREAT profit! And it's a good name, to boot!

How much did you end up getting for it? When I first viewed this article, I was curious as to how much it would sell for, however I never got around to viewing it once it ended.
