The brandable domain names that sold last week, how much they sold for, and where they sold, week thirty-seven.
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
Welcome to week 37 of the Brandable Domain Name Sales list.
Favorite name this week … RocketHub.com for a jaw dropping $51,500. Yikes! Great startupy name though that can work in a lot of verticals.
According to the Wayback Machine it used to be a crowdfunding platform for creatives:
RocketHub is the world’s funding machine. RocketHub is an international and open community that has helped thousands of artists, scientists, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists raise millions of dollars.
Second fav of the week … EcoClean.com selling for $6,901. I’m a sucker for Green / Eco names.
For comparison here’s the top $5000+ “eco” names that have sold in the past 2 years according to NameBio.
