Brandable domain name sales week 12: Fotopedia.com, TheTourist.com, CleanCloud.com

It was another great week for brandable domain name sales once again with five sales in the five-figure range. The biggest sale was the previous developed and dropped Fotopedia.com domain that was caught and auctioned by DropCatch (who else?). The winning bid was a whopping $20k+. Fotopedia was a popular photo encyclopedia founded by former Apple executives in 2008 which raised more than $11m in funding but which was shut down in 2014. The site still has almost 200k backlinks and receives an estimated 15 to 20k visitors a month which is most likely the reason for the high price it went for on DropCatch.

Here’s this weeks list:

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 marketplaces 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 them in next week’s report.

    1. It seems that it was developed as some sort of image hosting site in a previous life. Most likely been bid up by investors who hope to make the money back from parking revenue,.
