There are many variations of Domain Name scams. Once such, is the Domain Name Appraisal Scam. I have just received the below mail asking me to do a Domain Appraisal and the prospective buyer will pay 65% of the appraised value. This is nothing but a scam. If i reply asking the prospective buyer to do the Domain Appraisal themselves and deduct the appraisal fees from the purchase price, i am 100% sure i won’t get a reply. Just thought of giving a heads up to everyone.
we are interested to buy your domain name ******* and offer 65% of the appraised market value.
As of now we accept appraisals from either one of the following leading appraisal companies:
If you already have an appraisal please forward it to us.
As soon as we have received your appraisal we will send you our payment (we use Paypal for amounts less than $2,000 and escrow.com for amounts above $2,000) as well as further instructions on how to complete the transfer of the domain name.
We appreciate your business,
Let us see how to install a WordPress Contact Form Plugin or WP Contact Form Plugin. Refer the post of how to install a wordpress plugin in general to start with.
WP Contact Form Plugin is a very useful plugin to set up a contact page so that visitors can easily send an email through this page.
1. Download the zipped copy of WP Contact Form Plugin and unzip it.
2. Upload the unzipped copy into your /public_html/wp-content/plugins folder using the ftp client. I use FileZilla as my ftp client.
3. Login to the Admin area of your wordpress blog and go to “Plugins” option. There you can see the newly updated “Contact Form 7” plugin. Activate the plugin.
4. Go to “Contact” -> “Edit” which you can find just below the “Settings”. There you can set the target email id through which your visitors should contact you.
5. Now you can make a Contact Form Post, Page or Text Widget. I will explain for the Contact Form Page. Add a new page and copy the code as shown in the below picture
into the page’s content area. Make sure you turn off the comments option for this page. Add a link to this “Contact Page” and you are done.

Don’t love your domains or in other words don’t get emotionally attached with them. Once you get emotionally attached, you will not be in a position to make a financially good decision when an offer comes knocking the door. Worst case you won’t even try to sell the domain and itt will be in your account for ages gathering dust.
You think you got a great domain which you don’t want to part with only to regret later. I am not saying you should take any offer which comes in your way, but just make financially wise decisions instead of emotional ones.
The reason why i bought it up is, i see many people get attached with a particular type of domains even if the future looks bleak. Just because they are emotionally attached, it becomes tough to part ways.
