Brandable domain name sales week 44: SweetLegs.com, Maill.com, TheMenu.com

It was a fantastic week for brandable domain name sales with six sales in the five-figure range. We would have our first ever seven-figure brandable sale to report if Vivo wasn’t the Spanish word for Alive. The sale of Vivo.com was discovered and reported by George Kirikos on Twitter this weekend. As Elliot Silver reports the domain name was owned by RealNetworks, Inc and is now owned by Vivo Mobile Communication Co., Ltd in China which paid $2.1 million for the domain name.

Leading the chart this week is the sale of SweetLegs.com which was sold by Mike Mann his DomainMarket for a sweet $17,000. Another interesting sale was that of Maill.com for $8,756 at Sedo which shows the trend for double letters continues. Names I like on this list include Lobi.com, TheMenu.com, Kilia.com and Fabior.com

Brandable domain name sales week 43: TheStrategist.com, GoldenBullet.com, Grando.com

It was a bit of a mellow week for brandable domain name sales with only two names selling in the five-figure range. Those two names were TheStrategist.com for $16,000 and Nect.com for $12,000 and both of them sold via Sedo.  The+Keyword domains continue to do well. Earlier this year TheBlockChain.com sold for $15k and a year earlier Mike Berkens sold TheStores.com for a whopping $50k.

Other names I like on this week’s list include GoldenBullet.com, Zoof.com and Grando.com

Brandable domain name sales week 22.

It was a great week for brandable domain name sales as we can report the second 6 figure sale of the year with Mera.com selling for a cool $132,500. It is the highest reported brandable domain name sale of the year so far and it has all the characteristics of a great brandable. The buyer is Mera Software Services and is an upgrade from the meranetworks.com url. We have a couple of other large sales with Bando.com and Dopo.com both fetching 5 figures on Sedo. Alternative spellings are hot at the moment with Krush.com going for $6,652 on DropCatch and Tunez.com pulling in $5,999 at auction site Flippa. Other names I like on this list are Lero.com, Vinder.com and SpaceCoin.com

Brandable domain name sales week 20.

It was a bit of a slow week for brandable domain name sales compared to last week but there are quite a few names on this list that I really like. HotBird.com which went for $6,278 at Sedo is a very cool brand and already developed into what seems to be a Turkish social site with a Pinterest inspired UX. Another two word brandable that I like from this list is SilentFox.com which also sold at Sedo for $4,000. I like animal inspired brand names and have successfully sold a few of them in a similar price range such as LionCub.com, ShowCat.com and FoxPaw.com. My favourite name on the list this week is Chatly.com which fetched $3,175 on auction site NameJet. Although it might seem on the high side for a NameJet buy I still believe there’s plenty of room for a solid ROI as I would personally price this name in the low five figure range when offering it for sale. MusicKing.com took $2,500 on Flippa when someone hit the BIN button and I think it’s a terrific deal for the buyer. I own a few two word brandables ending with King but none as good as this one.
