Over the past year the WordPress blogging niche has really grown and there has been a number of great people contributing to the WordPress community with their blog.  Unfortunately, the popularity of the niche has resulted in every decent “WP” domain to get registered, leaving someone who wants to launch a WordPress blog without many options for quality domain names to use.

While digging through my domain portfolio yesterday, I discovered that I actually have a quality “WP” domain which I will not end up needing, so I’ve decided to sell it.   The domain is WPTavern.com which stands for WordPress Tavern.   Taverns are known for being great places for discussions, so I originally registered the name with the idea of either building a forum or some sort of place to discuss WordPress thoughts and ideas.  In the time since that domain was registered, I actually acquired WPForums.com and a couple weeks ago launched a WordPress Forums with that domain name.  I also think that this domain would also make for a great domain for a WordPress niche blog.

Long story short, if you’d like to own and develop WPTavern.com, please contact me with your offer.   It is registered with GoDaddy and is trademark free.  I will collect offers for 48 hours and then sell the domain.

If you have any questions about the domain or about how to acquire a domain name, please let me know.

    sure the 1st question ever is how much do you expect to get?
    I’d probably be interested but it depends on price…

    Damn Kyle, that is a nice domain that you picked up when you got it. To tell you the truth, I really like the sound of the name and can see someone applying a pretty nice looking Bar theme to the site. If someone buys the domain from you, try and figure out what they plan on doing with it and post the results. If I wasn’t so busy, I’d snatch it up and turn it into something.

    @ Seezer – Although I have a pretty good idea of the value of the domain, I didn’t originally register it with the intention of selling it someday. I had planned to develop it.

    In other words, I’m not really holding out for its value, but whatever fair price I am offered.

    @ Jeffro – Thanks! I have to admit, I LOVED it as well when it was registered. I wanted to finish a few projects before I developed it and now I don’t need it really, so I figured I should pass it along to someone who is going to use it. If you decide you want it, just let me know. :)

    Oh, by the way, I noticed I also registered WordPressTavern.com (for redirect purposes) back in the day. I will pass this along for free to whoever I sell this domain to under the condition that they develop the “wp” version. :)

    Nice domain name! As Jeffro2pt0 said, the future owner shold develop a concept of bar, when you can talk about WP with your friend while drinking a beer :p (I’d love if a bar like this opens here, hehe)

    Where’s the best place to get a domain valued?

  6. Kyle Eslick says:

    @ PriceKing – Tough question to answer as most domain appraisals are inaccurate. When I’m selling a domain to someone, I usually let them select the domain appraisal service (they pay the fee but get to choose who) and then we go from there.

    Typically you can hire someone like Sedo or GoDaddy to do an appraisal, etc. Like I said earlier, I’m not sure there is a right answer! :mrgreen:

    Seems to me both Jeffro en JBJ are looking at a joint project ;)
