How To Find Expired Domain Auctions

November 24, 2011 by  Filed under: Domain 

Have you ever thought of anything to buy without knowing exactly where to go and get it? I honestly believe there is no such thing. In this century anything on earth can be sold and purchased, even Earth itself. If you like competition and bargaining, auctions can give you that kind of pleasure no matter which hamlet you live it; online auctions are open 24 hours a day for anyone willing to take a chance.

Domain auctions are very fashionable nowadays; after all, domains sound like the real estate of the internet. People buy domains to drive traffic to their sites and for many other reasons, and you don’t have to search for long if there is a certain name you have in mind. Domains expire every other minute because people forget about them or just don’t need them anymore so you have a good chance to find what you are looking for in a very short time by only creating an account on one of those websites which organise expired domain auctions.

The procedure is piece of cake. As soon as you have created an account in one of these ‘marketplaces’, you may start searching for thousands of domains available. Most of these sites offer a very good advanced search option so you won’t waste much time to get to the name that meets your needs. You will be able to see and monitor a significant number of current and future auctions. You may use the automated bidding system that most of these websites provide if you set the system properly, according to your bid limits. In this way, you won’t even have to follow the updates; the system will do it for you. However, it is wiser to sit in front of the computer and personally monitor the auction in its final quarter of an hour. Relying on email notification is not recommendable as we all know sometimes emails do not reach their destination because of errors beyond control.

Some websites feature not only available auctions, but also auctions that will soon be available, so you may increase the chance to find the very domain you desire. As soon as you have chosen the domain names that you want to purchase, you will add them to your cart and select the bidding limits that you find appropriate. It is as simple as that; no time wasted, sweat or headaches.

Sometimes you may be surprised to see that you are the only bidder. In that case, you will automatically win the auction and, what is more, you will get it for the minimum bid price listed. Yet, there are many people who prefer the challenge of tight competition and will not take much delight in winning automatically for lack of competitors.

So, what you need is a valid card to pay in case you win the auction. Sometimes there is an imposed time limit within which to pay for the domain but that doesn’t sound like a problem; if you have decided to place a bid for a domain name it means you are willing to pay.

The best part for auctions fans is the three-day period in which the auction is open. You get email notifications if you are outbid so that you can place a better bid and not lose the domain you are after. Besides the fun that expired domain auctions offers, you are likely to obtain exactly what you need in the most comfortable manner, sitting in your computer chair.
