    Just bought my first domain through Bido.com
    Sweet deal. I picked up a generic product name dot-com this afternoon. I know we can sell Measuring Bowls ('cause we already sell Onion Choppers ) on a product-focused niche site.

    Bid on the domain (got it cheaper than the proxy bid I placed), won, paid, corresponded with seller, he transferred it into my Moniker account, I changed DNS and it's already pointing to my server. All in about two hours time. Nicely done, Bido and seller (and me ).

    I will now make it a point to watch the listings.

    Yeah, you can get some good deals there. When I sold one of my domains there, I was checking out some of the other domains they had for sale, so I'll probably be checking it out more after the holidays.

    I had read your thread about selling your domain on Bido. That's why I thought I should post my "flip side" experience. When Bido first came out I'll admit I was a bit leery of the setup. But it looks like it is working well for a lot of transactions.

    However, to the uninitiated, the "smoothness" of a transaction depends on the seller, the buyer and how well they communicate via the Bido system. We were both online when the auction ended and I already had an account with the domain registrar - so the "transfer" was an easy and fast "push" from his account to mine.

    Congrats Bill. A product keyword domain is probably very easy to get a jump start on. I know it was for me with my latest purchase at NP. Best of luck.
