Brandable domain name sales week 42: Jobster.com, Calibra.com, RevLab.com

Let’s talk about Jobster.com – a domain name with a rich history in an industry I know well: online recruitment. Jobster was founded in 2004 by serial entrepreneur Jason Goldberg (who later founded Fab.com and blockchain platform OST) to take on the established players of that time such as Monster.com and CareerBuilder.com. The young founder raised a staggering $52.5M in funding for the company and went through a large number of pivots but the startup ended up being sold off to another HR Tech company in 2010 for a fraction of its previous valuation.

The site was neglected over the years and went completely offline around a year ago and more recently showed a “this domain name is expired” landing page from GoDaddy. When I saw the domain name appear on GoDaddy’s expired auctions list I pinged Jason on Twitter in case he wanted to buy back the domain name of his first startup. The domain name never made it to auction however as it was removed from the expired auction list which usually indicates that the owner renewed the domain name during its redemption period. I didn’t think much of it until I saw the domain name was sold for $200,000 via Sedo last week. 

The majority of the Whois details of the new owner are private but there are some hints that the buyer is Dutch staffing company Young Capital. It will be interesting to see what they will do with the name.

    1. Doron…Bulloney aka Rich Morris here from Virginia Beach. I just sent you an invite to connect with me on Linkedin. According to NamePros experts and critics, I register crappy domains. Just an observation, but has anyone other than domain investors ever heard of you, Efty, Sedo, Estibot etc.? I didn’t think so☺Moving on, I just hand registered five crappy domains at a total cost of $44. What was I thinking?
      They are; FamilyMonarch™.com, FamilyPatriarch™, FamilyNameGames™, StigmaCure™, and StigmaRx™.com. I’m told I don’t know what I’m doing and according to one NamePros expert I’m doomed for failure☺. Now that I’m the proud owner of DomainGourmet™, what do you think Doron? Say hi to Fay, Isla and Pepper for me. God Bless!

      1. Surely the backlinks boost the value. 195,775 backlinks from 2,437 different domains – most of them are dofollow. It would take years and a boatload with cash to build such a backlink profile from scratch.
