    Alright I'm going with a named domain eg. BingoDomains / KangaDomains (Of course not these they are unattractive, just brainstorming at the moment)

    Fixed up most of the HML5 code, the website is fully functional, just need to make it easier on the eye and pleasant to look at / interesting.

    Roar online with lion domains - liondomains.com.au
    The possibilities are endless. Someone will probably register that one now.

    OK, so I've been BUSY but I took the time to read this entire thread just now, ummmm WOW... PLEASE take everyones advice, the only good things said in this thread here are from other members, they are sooo correct..... you are heading down a path of destruction.

    if you want to throw $100 bills away please throw them my way !

    you REALLY need to come to the xmas party, nobody will tell you anything but at least you can have a few beers :) just kidding, the crumbs that drop to the floor at a dnt meeting are worth GOLD.

    OMG you are using flash on your homepage :eek:

    bingo....., kanga..... :eek: , PLEASE read more posts about brand ability, memorability etc

    STOP THIS MADNESS NOW

    nice idea OK, but so far BAD implementation.

    so my advice is STOP STOP STOP and get more knowledge, you can not sell a good domain when you yourself have such a SH^^T domain.

    my advice is if you want to ahead with your idea bingo and kanga are not going to cut it, make a post requesting a domain, I have done it and purchased GREAT domains.

    just my opinion.

    Don't listen to these guys Op. Most of them live at home with their Mums.

    Header doesn't look great, at least on a mobile. Expand on services and list previously sold domains too if possible. If you can get some domainers some free publicity by adding them to your books it will prop up the public appeal.

    Id also add articles about domain valuations etc.

    No doubt this is costing nothing much more than time which would otherwise be spent playing Xbox. Every website you build is valuable. Keep it up!

    No no, clearly don't want bingo or kanga, I was using an example.

    I'd come but I don't know anyone and I'm a noob to this.

    My homepage isn't flash? It's java and html5

    EDIT: Just saw your post. Yes mobile version isn't fixed yet, give me a bit to fix the header so it shrinks on mobile.
    Also, that's a great idea. I can't add previously sold domains as I haven't sold any yet, I've just been doing this three or so weeks and reading into it.

    Valuations: Once again, very new to this, couldn't value a domain hah. I'll read into it and post it in a separate section but get it read over first.

    THAT is the reason to come !

    you can't miss us, we are the ones that all look like the hunch back of notre dame in safari suits with coco cola glasses carrying a laptop or ipad whilst sipping a lemon mineral water with sporadic giggling and contemplating the mathematical potential of going home with the 21 year old Swedish blonde girl backpacker AND her brunette French backpacker friend as well !

    oooops, sorry, I was day dreaming whilst typing :eek:

    I've got an idea for a domain already Philip, thanks for your time and email though. Appreciate it.


    I've changed the website around, adding extra features.
    However now it links to a separate portfolio. Front page will be featured domains.
    In addition I'm adding a separate page explaining why a domain name is important and how to value it.


    In the future I'm happy to add other peoples domains to the selling page for free exposure (one of you gave me that idea)

    Seemed quite dark when i looked the other day, regarding names you will need heaps on the site for any credibility, yes a .com.au to sell .com.au's is the go

    Hi Spacey,

    Yes I'm purchasing a .com.au - It has a brandable name and I'm currently photoshopping the logo and cover design

    I will also be added something to lighten it up, I do agree with you there, it makes the website feel bland and uninviting.

    That's why I'm thinking of listing others domains on the website, free exposure couldn't hurt? - Direct link to netfleet for purchase?

    unsure if the netfleet thing helps you much, that's why it's complicated to do what you're trying

    I don't know how the transfer system works, so I couldn't perform my own? Escrow or something?

    That would be great! I could implement the use of them and the purchases through an account system. Great idea spacey. Thanks mate

    I would not rush in to list other peoples domain names for sale on your own website. It might not work out as you are expecting.

    Better to focus your time on business strategies, build your ideas, work on your professional skills. Then build a website that is like a shopfront for the skills and experience to are bringing to the table.

    Business people are good at spotting half baked ideas, so take your time and focus on gaining skills and experience.

    I do agree with you, and I thought that myself. I'm just putting forward ideas though, and I'm constantly reading more and learning everyday. Thanks Peter
