With all the talk about uni buying domainers portfolios, it got me to thinking what is the best way to actually buy a portfolio. I see some members have also opened topics soliciting the purchase of portfolios. So outside of the monetary issue, let's say an agreement is reached, what is actually the ideal way to buy an entire portfolio? So domainer A sells domainer B a sum of 500 domains.
In most cases that is quite a task and even if one somehow finds a way to automate pushing or entering of the transfer codes the task can still take up a considerable amount of time.
My ideal way to purchase someone's portfolio is to take over their godaddy account. Simply change the login and all information associated with the account and then mass change the whois and nameservers to mine.
That would be ideal.
Now for reality.....
Most domainers have many registrar accounts with many different logins so short of transfer codes there is really not an effective way to move hundreds of domains from one account to another.
I remember purchasing over 100 domains because I basically wanted a select few of them. I never bothered changing anything from the other domains, I had what I wanted and the rest was just waste to me so I did not care what happened to them. The idea of moving over a hundred domains didn't much appeal to me and was not a task I felt like working on.
So outside of the purchase of a portfolio, what are the logistics in moving that many domains?
As a domainer if you were to buy 500 domains from someone how would you facilitate the transfer process?
