Brandable domain name sales week 9 & 10

I did not publish a report last week as I was in Thailand where I tied the knot on the amazing island of Koh Samui (a wedding paid fully by the proceeds of a sale of a domain I picked up for $261 in 2013 but that’s a story for another post), followed by a 2nd Chinese style wedding in Hong Kong last Saturday, so I will bring you completely up to date with a double report this time out. is a name that I like a lot from this list and I think the buyer got it for an absolute bargain. The name was sold by Heritage Auctions but I wouldn’t be surprised if it had fetched more on a reseller platform such as Namejet or even a marketplace like Flippa.  Personally I would not have sold a domain like for anywhere under $25,000.  I had a good week myself with 3 brandable domain name sales for $1,566 a piece on average. Two were hand registered last year and one bought for $150 on Sedo.

Here’s this week list.

Please do keep in mind that these are the highest sales that have been reported to 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. 

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.

  1. Hi Doron, congratulation on your wedding. I think you are still so busy, so there are some miss in the table, such as number 25. But it is OK, it is still a very great post. Good luck with your new family.

  2. Congrats on your wedding Doron.
    Truly that is an amazing island.
    I checked it out,I never heard of it and i hope one day i will go there.
    Waiting on your future post to hear how you paid for it.

  3. Doron, congrats on your wedding and I am happy for you 😀

    Those are some great sales and I agree with you on sale. I need such sellers who are throwing away their domains at low prices 😀

    Congrats once again and good to see domain sale was involved and helped in wedding ceremony.

  4. Congrats!
    Agree about the point you made on BOHO. For Hindi speakers DABBA means ‘box’ usually for lunch and the amount it fetched is small too.

  5. That’s right about Dabba (box in Hindi/Urdu language) but I still feel the price was good because people from India/Pakistan don’t pay much for domains compare to some other countries. IMO, keeping the current market in mind, the price was good for both parties.

  6. @AbdulBasit,
    Feb2012 DNJournal shows sold for $9500. I think such country specific names needs some more analysis. Still a good price for both the Dabba parties. 🙂

  7. Sarees is very popular in India and I am sure the buyer has made lot more than what he actually paid to acquire domain. Currently it’s developed site. Good sale considering .in extension.

  8. Most of the domains that sold on BrandRoot you can find “cached” listing pages in Google with a little search like… + . Then look for an indexed LISTING of the domain. I tried this on the domain and that domain was listed for $2,025 for an example and appears to have been sold on 2/16/2015 based on the last whois update and the change of ownership. Interesting to note… that domain was registered on 1/22/2015 but it was recently expired.

    1. I know (how to find the cached pages with listing price) but I don’t think it is very classy to publish sales prices from a marketplace that chooses not to share them. Another reason is that domains listed on brandable marketplaces don’t necessary sell for listing price.

  9. Hi. The following domains appear multiple times on your lists. Did they really sell multiple times or is it just an import mistake? Some of them are also reported sold on 2014.
