Thank you for your feedback! We completely agree. We remain committed to a highly curated domain marketplace. At this time, we have an 8% acceptance rate.
With regard to our Marketplace growth, for the first year of the Marketplace rollout, we focused primarily on Level 1 names (see below).
We are continuing to experience strong demand for higher value domains; and therefore Level 2 - 3 names are one of the focus areas of our marketplace expansion.
Excerpt from our recent article:
Level 1 Names: $1000 – $3,000
Many premium domains fit into this tier, and a domain budget of a few thousand dollars will get you far. It will allow you to purchase a unique premium domain that is strong and memorable, but may include intentional misspellings, mashups, transmutations, or made up words. Ellesti and TheoryNine are examples of solid names within Level 1.
Level 2 Names: $3,000-$30,000
Very short domains and domains using powerful words are often priced from $3,000-$30,000. Names like HealthHero are powerful and pragmatic, while Brivio is short, versatile, and memorable.
Level 3 Names: $60,000+
This level includes single-English word .com and other highly coveted domains that command a high pricetag.
Please note, the above is a simple breakdown to help give context. It is in no way a representation of our pricing strategy. As we expand our Marketplace to include more Level 2 and Level 3 names, our focus will continue to be highly curated.
