The Price is not Right

This morning, I got the bright idea for another blog, and the initials for the title of the blog were AFTA.

Aha. afta.com was potentially available for private sale, although it was registered! So, I jotted a quick note to the owner, as follows:

"Hello... I am interested in the afta.com domain. I'll offer $175."

This received the following response about a half hour ago:

Hello,

We have received your email regarding the domain afta.com.

The owner of this domain has listed the sales price for this domain at $62487 USD.

To make an offer, reply to this email with the offer you would like me to present to the owner of the domain. Offers that are not within a reasonable range of the sales price will be ignored.

If you wish to not to recive any notices about this domain name, please reply to this email with the subject "UNSUBSCRIBE"

Best Regards,

Blake
XXXXXXX.com
Blake@XXXXXXX.com

Needless to say, unless this figure is in Kazakhstan dollars, I won't be the proud owner of afta.com.

About a year ago I found a web site that will calculate your domain's resale value, based on several criteria such as traffic, how many other sites link to you, etc. I was pretty surprised when it told me my ldphotography.net domain was worth about $16,000. And, that was a year ago. I wonder what it's at now. I need to find that site again and find out...

I looked at that site, Lon, and I couldn't figure out exactly how they came to a value... it LOOKED like it was a measure of traffic, rather than an intrinsic value in the name itself?

This was from me, by the way... posted from blog comments and there's a bug...

I'm not sure, either. The site I found said that it calculated the value based on traffic and the number of sites that link to you, but I don't know how they can measure traffic. They don't have access to my logs. How else would they get that info?
