I got an email this morning from Flippa announcing their A-List Newsletter that will is available for subscription in the flippa.com/myresources section of the site. The newsletter will cover high profile domains and sites that have been listed on the Flippa marketplace. In the press release, it’s mentioned that this newsletter is eventually planned to become a paid service.
Part of the reason Flippa has created this newsletter is in response to the growing number of premium domain names that have been listed at Flippa ie.. Links.com, Dirt.com, AY.com and Registrar.com. You can read the most recent A-List edition at http://bit.ly/flippa-a-list.
I think the A-List idea is a good idea as it provides investors a good resource to look through the premium inventory that is available on Flippa during that week. It seems that this newsletter has been created to cater to domainers who may not log on to Flippa everyday to look for domains that are for sale but want to keep up with domains that are listed on this growing marketplace.
