Brandable domain name sales week 1: HappyMonkey.com, Orre.com, PetPlaza.com

2015 was a great year for brandable domain name sales and my prediction is that values for quality brandable domains will continue to go up in 2016. In case you missed it, I compiled a list of the top 100 brandable domain name sales of 2015 right here.  Despite some missing sales data from the large marketplaces such as Sedo last week we’re off to a good start in 2016 with two sales in the five figure range. ePhoto.com and eCharge.com both sold on NameJet which seems that investors believe there is still appetite from end-users for this type of name. Personally I find them a bit outdated.

Names I like on this weeks are HappyMonkey.com, – which I really wanted to buy but it went over my budget, Orre.com, PetPlaza.com

Here’s this weeks list:

ePhoto.com$37,000NameJet

Please do keep in mind that these are the highest sales that have been reported at NameBio et al. This list is meant to help give you insights and is nowhere near complete as many sales are kept private and the major market places specializing in brandable domains do not report their sales. Some domain name sales might not have been paid for yet. 

If you know of any recent, verifiable brandable domain name sales please do let me know so I can include it in next week’s report.

  2. Dear Doron,
    I WISH YOU AND YOUR BELOVED FAMILY MEMBERS A HAPPY AND PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR. I hope you are still enjoying your vacation.
    The list that you have provided is very valuable, I can read brandbucket mindset in these domain names. THANK YOU.
    Further, I have one domain name GIFAX.COM, I want to sell it to direct end user. I think GIFAX is a Nasdaq / DOW listed company. I will appreciate if you can guide me in selling this domain name.
    Thank you.
    Haroon
