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.

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 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. Chatly is a great name but as a flip I think they overpaid. To pay over 3 grand for something that may get 10 grand if your lucky isn’t a good investment in my opinion. It does amaze me though how many LY names are selling lately.

  2. In the UK the term ‘flutter’ can be used for a speculative investment. Its more likely that whoever purchased it is looking at another meaning – i.e. motion

  3. I bought several domains ending in “ly” because they sell, However, I never liked how they sound. Chatly doesn’t sound good to me, but I guess I’m in the minority.
