I've gotten no response from the domain owner. I didn't low ball - I didn't make an offer at all. I just asked if the owner would be willing to sell the domain to me. The website stopped being updated 8 years ago, but until this year, it was up and had adsense ads with the sites old content. Now, the website is gone, but the domain still exists and is owned by the original person still. The domain is not parked. I've been reading the articles that domainking131 shares on this forum , so I understand why an owner might not want to sell a website or domain even if it's not being used. The owner keeps up with the domain registration religiously, so there's no hope it will expire and I'll be able to snatch it up. Is there anything else I can do? Should I assume the owner's non-response is the equivalent of "no"?
