So a year ago I made an offer of $250 via email and via godaddy for a .ca domain name that really only made sense for my business motto. I specialize in Maple Domains and this was a two word domain with the first word being maple.
Now it truly had very little value to anyone else unless they wanted to put it to a specific use.
I got a response back asking for around 1.2k and I politely declined saying it was something where I figured if I could pick it up on the cheap I would.
So a year later the domain goes to TBR, the domainer had all my information and he decided to let the domain expire instead of contacting me to claim his $250 dollars. Obviously he did not record my information or the offer, instead he let the domain expire without attempting to complete our original negotiations.
I picked up the domain and used canspace to get it for me.
My final costs after taxes was around 69 bucks.
Why Why Why do some domainers not properly record their inquiries????
I would have given him the $250 had he re-contacted me.
I CANNOT STRESS AGAIN THE IMPORTANCE OF A PROPER SPREADSHEET WHERE ONE RECORDS OFFERS AND CONTACT INFORMATION.
Please people do not leave money on the table.
