Okay, this was just too crazy not to talk about. The domain name, xn--iilanlari-02b.com, an expiring domain name has 22 bids on Go Daddy with a little under two hours to go in the auction. Maybe it’s just me but is this not the absolutely worst domain name you could every think of in your entire life? In fact, it’s so bad I honestly don’t understand how anyone thought it up in the first place.
So why the heck is it getting so many bids? Go Daddy auctions is reporting that it gets over 9,000 visitors/month which has to be the only reason I can think of that people would be bidding. At north of $200 I would have to gouge-out my own eyes just for looking at a domain like this at any price point.
I love domains with traffic just like the next guy but this one really makes me wonder how anyone in their right mind could even think of bidding on this and spending their money on what I honestly think is the worst domain name I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
Does anyone else get this? Even if it does get 9,000 visitors/month – what the heck would you do to get those visitors to convert to revenue? Okay, that’s all I’ve got, now I have to pick my jaw off the ground and get back to looking at expired domains without two dashes that end in 02b 🙂
