Josh Reason launched DNWE.com this week and it looks pretty awesome 😎

Josh and I have been Twitter friends for some time now but I finally got the chance to meet him in-person at NamesCon. Well fresh off of NamesCon Josh has a new announcement, and like many others, I’m pretty excited. It’s called DNWE.com and it’s a marketplace for Domainers to sell to other Domainers at wholesale prices.

DNWE

The first thing that struck me about DNWE.com is the UX – it is super clean, from the site itself to the registration flow it’s clearly thought out and feels sparkly and fresh, like a new car.

As a domain investor buying domains there are four reasons why DNWE.com thinks it will be a go-to for you:

  1. Only accepting investment-grade domains
  2. Domain pricing clearly set at wholesale
  3. Easy to search and filter
  4. Non-negotiable BIN prices

For domain investors selling domains the main draws to DNWE are:

  1. Still maintaining retail prices on your domains in public marketplaces
  2. Only a 9% success fee
  3. Quick payouts = fast liquidity

While there have been some initial bugs getting things off the ground Josh has been super honest about them and incredibly communicative on Twitter.

This is the right way to do things. Rather than promising people a perfect experience, I think it’s great that Josh is honest, hey – there are always bugs when you’re getting a new site launched, rather than hiding it Josh is taking the high road and I think that’s awesome.

I’m looking forward to listing some of my names on DNWE.com, I think it’s a great idea and with Josh at the helm I also think it’s going to be done right. Huge congrats to Josh – looking forward to being a customer both as a buyer and a seller! πŸ™Œ

    You should really add a clickable hyperlink to the dnwe.com site and give the guy some link juice, Morgan πŸ™‚

    It’s a mess, he should have tested in beta before launching, amateur hour.

      @Mike – ever notice that your iPhone gets an update from Apple almost every two weeks? If you read the notes in the update it usually says bug fixes…and that’s Apple. It’s not realistic to expect bug free code, especially in a new release.

      I’m a fan of releasing early and often, here’s a good read about it – https://hackernoon.com/early-and-often-how-to-release-software-bc852f0698bc

    I visited a few times and I guess I need to immediately see some domain names at top of fold to keep and hold my interest. Rotate what I can see and buy. Boring now.

    Don’t bury that feature….the feature domains…. that helps build excitement upon initially seeing site. So when you add to site, I would want to immediately see names to buy at top.

    I could see being a member to submit names for sale or buy but let non-members look around too.

    I wish him luck with project.

      SuperTravel.com for $5,000 is not bad.
