Brandable domain name sales week 47:,,

I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving weekend. It was a special weekend for me as well since I had all my five siblings over to visit me and my family here in Hong Kong.  The top grossing brandable sale this week was which went for $12,600 on auction site NameJet. The reason for the high sales price must be that there’s a large, global, hotel brand that goes by the same name. The domain name was first registered in 1996 and recently expired at Network Solutions.

Some names I like on this week’s list are, and

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 marketplaces specializing in brandable domains do not report their sales. Some domain name sales might not have been paid for yet. 

If you know of any recent, verifiable brandable domain name sales please do let me know so I can include them in next week’s report.

  1. I also like, Doron. Its a play on the word ‘Emu’. Emu’s are a large, non-flying bird (very similar to an Ostrich) and they are an icon of Australia. It appears on the National Coat of Arms, along with the Kangaroo.

  2. That $12.6K investment in Tryp if even ballsyer given that said global hotel brand has an active and registered TM on that very term. Might turn out to be a very costly buy as it has UDRP written all over it.

    1. Not necessarily.
      I was actually bidding in that auction but it went way over my budget 🙁
      It’s one of the best names I’ve seen in a while and I would’ve definitely been happy to own it if I had the money.
      I think it’s the perfect brandable for a travel site as it’s a typo of the word Trip.
      I don’t see the Hotel chain filing or winning a UDRP if the domain owner stays clear of hotel booking services.
      Funny enough is owned by a domain name brokerage firm and parked with lots of ads for hotel bookings.
