It was a slow week for brandable domain name sales as we didn’t see any sales reported in the five figure range. The top sale was which went for $7,000 on Sedo followed by the duo and which took $5,000+ a piece on There’s a few solid names again at this list that will make for some great brands such as, and These are the perfect examples of two keyword brandables. A invented name I really like is I had a backorder placed for it but there was too much interest for it once it landed on so I missed out on it.

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. Is it just me, or does anyone else think that prices paid on are becoming ridiculous? If end users picking up not too bad, but at wholesale many of those prices seem very frothy to me.

  2. @Richard,

    At any expired domain auction venue, potential bidders have a long lead time, which some of them use to contact end users in advance. Frequently end user buyers will be lined up by front runners before the auction takes place, or else those end users will themselves be participating directly or through intermediaries they’ve engaged.

    And sometimes it’s just a case of resellers / speculators with large budgets and (excessively?) high confidence of resale getting caught up in the bidding.

    Either way, domain investors must interpret prices intelligently. A brandable will sell for more when it’s already in use by brands. Prices don’t necessarily reflect intrinsic value – meaning that the domains don’t all go to new startups. Many are used to shorten the names of established websites.

  3. Hi Doron, should have been listed in this post. Was sold last month for $3,500.
    Sale already published by last week.

    Best regards, Marian
