Brandable domain name sales week 43: MailManager.com, Qiro.com, ChainTalk.com

Last week was a little slow for brandable domain name sales as we only charted two sales in the five-figure range. The top-grossing went to Sedo where MailManager.com sold for a cool $13,000. The domain name currently still resolves to a Uniregistry parked page but I believe the buyer is UK-based 28Hands, a software company that runs an email management tool called Mail Manager.

Let’s say you’ve started a company and lovingly named it Mable. You raised a cool $3M in funding. Would you do like one of the startups on this week’s list and launch on MeetMable.com, fork out $275,000 to purchase the exact-match Mable.com domain or maybe you opt to save yourself some dough and spend $9,888 on Mable.co?

Brandable domain name sales week 40: Kura.com, HeyMoney.com, Varus.com

NameJet takes the top spot this week with the $68,495 sale of Kura.com. The domain name has been up for auction before if my memory serves me right but this is the first time it hit it’s reserve and changed hands. The Whois is under privacy so it isn’t clear who’s the new owner of the domain as of now.

Another notable sale was that of HeyMoney.com which sold for a cool $40,000 at Sedo. The buyer also acquired the new gTLD Hey.Money for $8,888 in the same week.

86 Newly Funded Companies and their Domain Names: EverBody.com, Glamera.com, Workona.com

You don’t need a great domain name to raise money for a startup. As this week’s list shows, you don’t even need a decent or average domain name. You can raise millions and launch on a $10 domain name that was hand-registered the night before. It’s often only when a startup experiences significant traction and starts growing rapidly that they start to realize the importance of owning their exact-match brand .com domain name. The downside of this approach is that the price of their desired domain name has gone up significantly or worse, the domain name is off the market forever.

This year marked the biggest year in funding for artificial intelligence ventures yet.

The top-grossing sale is for AITimes.com which sold for a cool $46,000 at Sedo. The domain name does not resolve at this moment and the recently updated Whois details show a Korean-based registrant as the owner.
