The brandable domain names that sold last week, how much they sold for, and where they sold, week thirty.
Quick rules recap for how I determine this list:
- No numeric domains
- No obvious keywords or category-defining domains (CryptoMarketplace.com is a KW, CoinBase.com is a brand).
- .com, OR
- .co, .io, .org if they are strong one-word keywords.
- No 2L & 3L domains (as they are a breed on their own)
- No obvious one-word dictionary domains (in any language). This means, for example, the sale of Hora.com would not be included as it’s the Spanish word for Hour. (The caveat here is I don’t speak most of the world’s languages, only English, so I might miss stuff. This one is a bit ‘fast and loose’).
- Unless a word has an alternative spelling such as “Thiink.com”
- No 4-letter acronyms unless they are pronounceable and used as a brand name instead of an acronym
- Two keyword domains can qualify. Example: OneHome.com. BuyHome.com would not have made this list (because it’s a keyword and not a brand).
- Variation on words are allowed, example: Wearly.com
Here’s the list:

Looks like Greenpal.com sold to an end user (or the worst domainer on the planet). Just checked, forwards to YourGreenPal.com. Good on them for getting their brand exact match, but Jesus H that price!
Good on the seller too, I guess. 🙂
I’m honestly surprised this week that the .AI names went for what they did. I’ve seen worse names got for low five figures… science.ai and fusion.ai are you kidding me? Under $10k? Good deals (given where the market on wholesale has been, which… has been high af, IMO, not gonna lie).

I’ll never sell your info and will only send one email per week. 🙂
