Brandable domain name sales week 28:,,

The top grossing brandable domain name sale of last week was which closed at a whopping $26,722 at GoDaddy’s expired auctions. The whois for the domain name doesn’t show the new owner as of yet.

Then we have and Both domain names are everything a great invented brand name needs. They are short, memorable, super easy to pronounce and very hard to misspell. They are a pleasure to say out loud and also look fantastic in writing. I absolutely love lyrical names like these. They make for terrific brands in my opinion. Although I’d say is the better name out of these two (and also has more obvious end-users) I found it interesting to see that both domain names sold at the same price-range but was purchased by a well-known domain name investor at NameJet and was purchased at Sedo by an end-user as you can see from the already developed website.

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.

One thought on “Brandable domain name sales week 28:,,

  1. is great, but that’s a steep reseller price to pay for it. The asking price needed to justify the acquisition cost is going to put off most would be buyers.

    Even more surprised by MJ related domains are being bid up to insane prices, and it’s been happening for some time. I don’t understand why. There seems to be no great demand for such names. I sell one for 1500-3000 every now and then, but overall I find MJ domains to be among the worst performing categories in my portfolio.

    Are you actively buying and expanding your portfolio these days, Doron, or are you waiting for prices to cool down?
