Celebrity Gossip web site Radar Online covers eBay auction of HeidiandSpencer.com for $21MM

Heidi and Spencer domain for sale

The celebrity gossip web site Radar Online, receives over 1.5 million visitors per month.

The web site Radar Online which covers celebrity news, is reporting that the domain HeidiandSpencer.com is up for sale on eBay, and like many domain names put up for sale on eBay: the price is ridiculous.

The seller has lost their marbles if they think a buyer is going to swoop in and buy this name, but “listing hype” on eBay can help draw curious onlookers to other items for sale by the seller, so sometimes tacking on a make-believe price tag does work in the seller’s favor, as the seller has listed other domain names in the item description for sale.

At the time of this posting, the listing page for the domain name has over 3,000 visits.

eBay not a great idea for selling domains

Most domain buyers know that buying or selling domain names on eBay isn’t a great idea, but the owner of HeidiandSpencer.com is giving it a whirl anyway, listing the domain for $21,000,000.

The eBay listing headline reads, “HeidiAndSpencer.Com Greatest Domain Name Ever 4 Sale”, but as Radar Online points out, the suggestion hasn’t helped hype interest in this particular domain, since it has received 0 bids.

It’s not the first time domain names up for sale on eBay have been listed with million dollar price tags.¬† Not long after eBay went online, people have been selling products on the web site with outrageous prices, often times just to get hype.

Item Specifics on the Domain

Here’s what the eBay seller (who happens to have a 100% feedback rating) has to say about the domain:

HeidiAndSpencer.Com The Greatest Domain Name Ever Is Finally For Sale.Two very great generic names Heidi And Spencer.This is a no reserve and regged at Go Daddy.Payment is due within 3 days and we only take pay pal.We are listing a few gems so please check out our other items for sale.We will transfer asap as soon as payment is made.

In fun, often, prospective “joke” buyers will leave teaser comments for sellers such as: “Would you be willing to accept $20,000,000?”
