The brandable domain names that sold last week, how much they sold for, and where they sold, week thirty-four.
Quick rules recap for how we 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
Top name on the list this week is Zuf.com for $40,000 at Flippa.com
I was on the fence whether to leave this one on the list becuause Zuf is either:
- A 3 letter, pronouncable brand .com
- The German word for accidental
- A terrorist organization in India.
For $40 grand I’m guessing the buyer is hoping for option #1. Otherwise they’ve just “accidently” overpaid and will have to outrank option #3 in Google. 🙂
Moving on …
I like FinTrade.com. Lot’s of opportunity in DEFI/Finance for that one.
