    Lol, to be honest I do use Seemly's domain price tool myself quite often.

    It's been a while since my last update.

    Yesterday a fellow Acorn member flagged an issue with the bulk whois displaying an error when attempting to export CSV of the results.
    This has now been fixed and confirmed by the reporter.

    If any of you spot any other issues elsewhere, I'd really appreciate the heads up, and I will look to fix it.

    How up to date is this service with recent sales.

    I'd say very up to date, it's not instant as I'm sure it's done manually but it's decent.

    It's pretty much all automated, so should be pretty good at being up to date.
    There are checks throughout the day via various triggers.

    Because of the automation, discovering reported sales via unstructured content like that found on dnjournal can be missed.
    Periodically fellow acorners will post recent sales posts that I will quickly search using the tool. If it's not in the DB I add it manually.

    @seemly Sorry to bump this, but do you ever implement the RSS feed for recent sales? Would be really handy and is something I'm looking for right now.

    I haven't, because the last 18 months or so has been something that I can only describe as "not ideal".

    I have also been working on a new project for the last few weeks (totally unrelated to domains).

    When that is complete I "might" re-build seemly as an application in it's entirety, so an RSS feed might be a feature. But in all honesty it's not really something that inspires much motivation these days, as it kinda works as it is and rebuilding it doesn't really add any benefit (to me).

    Adding something like an RSS feed would just make it super easy for a competitor to just hijack the compiling of data I gather. Most of the traffic I get is for the bulk whois tool, so I may decide to restrict access to that based on a tiered membership system.

    The problem is there isn't much of a market out there for me to monetise, and most domainers are cheap-skates anyway (myself included) :p

    I get that. If you do rebuild, perhaps you could have some sort of API under a tiered membership where you have a set quota of requests for data or something.

    I think sales is selling. If you don’t know your market you aren’t going to sell much.

    Seemly, you're doing a really excellent job. I only recently got wind of your service, but it's an invaluable tool to UK domain professionals and a one that I've started using as a part of my "toolbox". Much respect for your work, it is much appreciated.

    With my thanks and best wishes

    Ty

    Thanks, Ty. I really appreciate that!

    It has been "neglected" of late, so was quite nice to add an update of sorts...
    I'm sure I will be adding more over the coming months.
