Xelot.com – Find Out What Your Website Is Really Worth

If you haven’t heard of Xelot.com – you are not alone, nobody has because I just put-up the coming soon page yesterday! Xelot represents my company’s first software launche and it’s in a niche that I’m extremely passionate about so it has been a blast putting it together over the last six months. It was in the summer of 2010 that I first came-up with the idea after selling one of my traffic/revenue names and saying…I wonder what other websites with similar characteristics sell for? Did I sell for too little?

Well if it was a Domain Name I could just look at the DNJournal sales lists or hop on over to Estibot to get a quick idea of similar sales. However when it comes to selling an online business, a domain name with a business model and consistent traffic and revenue it’s not as easy. Until now. Well I guess that’s a bit dramatic but why not be dramatic when it’s something you care about! I’d like to introduce you to Xelot, a website sales estimation tool I will be launching in March of this year!

Xelot will be going-into beta the second or third week in February but it all depends on getting things just right which seems to always take longer than you’d expect! Right now my development team is working on the algorithm and fine tuning the way in which we calculate our estimates. Xelot will not be providing exact estimations but instead expected sale ranges. When you’re selling a website/online business many factors come-into play, PageRank, Traffic, Revenue, Profit, etc. so giving an exact price wouldn’t make real world sense. What Xelot will tell you is a realistic expectation of what your domain with a site, traffic, revenue, etc. could sell for on the open market.

Now is where you come in. Yes – I’m talking to you, the person reading my blog and hopefully saying, “Wow – this sounds cool!” I would like to give you the opportunity to beta test my first software release. Unfortunately it can’t be all of you because I really need people who actively develop and monetize their domains and have some history of selling websites/online businesses. If you think you’d be a good fit just comment below! It has been a lot of fun creating the inner-workings of Xelot and I can’t wait to let our first beta users try it out!

    Of course I expect an invite in person. Nice 5L name as well. You know how I like those.

    Morgan, I don’t have a history of selling online businesses/domain names (wish I did, and I’m working on it!), but I am actively monetizing some of my domains. If you have a “B” list, put me on it. I’m interested.

    I wouldn’t be an appropriate tester with my background, but I am very interested in seeing what you come up with, Morgan. I look forward to meeting you next week in LA.

    Well, if it’s based on discounted cash flow (DCF) models, I’m a CFA and know them backwards and forwards. Hope you’re taking inflation (devaluation of the dollar at the hands of Congress) into account for the tool, especially since we are in a highly inflationary environment where a dollar earned tomorrow could be worth much less than a dollar earned today.

    Hi Morgan,
    You forgot to change the keywords on your new site’s coming soon page. You still have “debt” related stuff. πŸ˜‰
    I really don’t have the profile you ask for a beta tester, I’m more a tech guy with domaining hobby. But for sure I will check (and use) you site later.
    Good luck with your project!

    Hi,
    Great idea and I like the name. My name’s Mark and I’m an addict, an addict for buying names that I think will be the next big thing! I jest, but I do have a penchant for buying domain names and I would love to see if any of them might be worth the reg fee. Also in the UK if you need different nationality feedback πŸ™‚
