Brandable domain name sales week 2:,,

We have a very juicy list for you this week with ten sales in the five-figure range. The top sale was for a very nice CVCV, which fetched a cool $40k+ on auction site NameJet. The domain name was first registered in 1999 and was in use by a real estate company for many years before they let it drop. The winner seems to be an individual from Beijing

Other names I like on this list include, and The award for most profitable flip goes to which was purchased for just $310 on NamJet last summer and just sold for a whopping $20k on Sedo.

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. Today’s DNgeek report seems to indicate a higher average value on brandable domain sales than usual. It seems likely that values will continue to rise in the years ahead.

    It’s a simple matter of a looming shortage. Market forces move implacably to their conclusion.

    A recent article by Justin Fox on Bloomberg “We’re going to run out of company names” highlights the shortage of usable names for new businesses:

    Tony Spaeth a corporate ID consultant is quoted as saying:

    “There is a numeric limit to the universe of names, the combinations of letters of five syllables or less that are pronounceable… …we are rapidly depleting the supply.”

    Just as there is only a limited number of 3Ls and other sought after categories, there is only a finite number of good brandables of all descriptions.

    (This of course would also apply to good exact match names which are also slowly depleting.)
