Brandable domain name sales week 34: AceTech.com, Homee.com, Explorify.com

Sedo is taking all three podium spots this week with the sale of AceTech.com for $83,637 topping the chart. There’s a large number of companies across the world that go by the name “Ace Tech” but the smart buyer of the exact match .com brand domain name is Ireland-based, ACETECH, a global manufacturer of vehicle intelligence solutions for emergency service fleets which upgraded from the less undesirable and not-so-global AceTechSolutions.ie domain.

Brandable domain name sales week 33: DigitalBrain.com, CreateMe.com, WinnerWinner.com

As expected, Uniregistry puts a prominent mark on our weekly sales list, being the most dominant marketplace with 8 out of the top 20 sales for the week. Sedo still managed to take the top spot however with their $28,309 sale of DigitalBrain.com. The domain name has a private Whois and is not resolving as of yet. DomainIQ shows the domain name was previously owned by a UK-based technology company building cloud solutions for the education sector.

Brandable domain name sales week 32: LiveWell.com, Profix.com, Toha.com

With Uniregistry now reporting 20 of their top-grossing public sales every week I expect we’re going to see at least a couple of additional five-figure sales making their way into the list. The chart is topped by what most likely is an investor purchase, with LiveWell.com going for a whopping $53,000 at GoDaddy’s expired auctions. This domain name has quite an interesting history as Raymond Hackney from TLD Investors wrote on his blog here.

GoDaddy’s Advice on How to Be a Successful Domainer

Develop a good business plan and make sure you have a secondary source of income because full time or even part time domaining could take a while. —  Tia Wood, Domainer, Web Consultant 

Every year one of the highlights of NamesCon is the presentation by GoDaddy.  It’s always well organized, with good visuals and lots of data based information.

Brandable domain name sales week 31: ProPawn.com, Unik.com, AudioMedia.com

I was very pleased to read that Uniregistry decided to start sharing (some) sales data on a weekly basis, rather than once or twice a year. From my understanding, they will be sharing the top 20 sales that aren’t under a non-disclosure agreement. Uniregistry’s brokerage team and sales platform move a lot of inventory and they have been a very dominant marketplace in our annual chart with the top 100 brandable domain name sales each year. Their sales will be included in our list as of next week.

Brandable domain name sales week 30: Tinka.com, eSolar.com, Kodit.com

The top-grossing brandable sale of last week was that of Tinka.com which exchanged hands for $25,000 via Sedo. The domain name currently sits parked and the Whois is private. The runner up is eSolar.com, an expired domain name which was auctioned via GoDaddy Auctions and ended at $20,750. The current owner according to Whois still shows as Afternic so I am unsure if the domain name has been paid for yet.

Brandable domain name sales week 29: Simplist.com, Mondia.com, ClickStream.com

We have two $30,000 end-user sales top the list this week with a mortgage company named Simplist upgrading from GoSimplist.com to Simplist.com and a Dubai-based digital media company operating from Mondia.io purchasing the matching Mondia.com domain name.

The expired domain name ClickStream.com just sold at GoDaddy Auctions for $20,600. There are a number of potential end-users for which the domain name would make a nice upgrade.

Brandable domain name sales week 28: eBiz.com, Savu.com, Tempr.com

Summer Break. We’ve entered a couple of months that are traditionally a bit slow for domain name sales. Nonetheless, last week was still bursting with activity and we’ve charted four brandable sales in the five-figure range. The top-grossing sales is that of eBiz.com which found a new home for a cool $20,000 via auction platform SnapNames.com

Brandable domain name sales week 21 – 27: Paga.com, ReviewMe.com, Creatio.com

I took a bit of a break from writing here and publishing the weekly list. I first spend a week with Efty co-founder Lionel in France where we both ran a personal record at the marathon Du Mont Saint-Michel and after that, I traveled to Portugal with my family for a holiday followed by attending NamesCon in Cascais.

It was my first time attending NamesCon Europe and I am happy that I’ve made the trip to Portugal to attend. The setup is significantly smaller than NamesCon Global but the content, speakers, and location were all excellent. The biggest draw for me is the networking as a lot of folks came out to Lisbon a few days in advance which meant there was plenty of time to catch up with everyone and share a meal, a few drinks or even do some sightseeing together. This in comparison to NamesCon Global where meetings are often back-to-back with little time left at the end of the day.

Ok, back to the sales data! Below we have a list of almost 100 brandable domain names for you that sold during these last few weeks.

Brandable domain name sales week 19 & 20: Medidata.com, Thiink.com, Yona.com

I wasn’t able to find the time last week to pull together a list so we have two weeks of sales data for you in this post. And what a list it is! Almost the entire list consists of five-figure sales. To say the market for brandable domain names is hot is an understatement. The mega sale of Medidata.com for $600,000 tops this weeks list and is also the highest brandable sale to make it to the list so far this year. George Kirikos uncovered the sale while examining an SEC filing (page 14) made by the buyer, public company Medidata Solutions, a provider of software solutions for clinical research in life sciences.

Another notable sale that left some people scratching their heads was that of Thiink.com which sold for a cool $50,000. Keith deBoer has written a lot about the double letter trend, with the first article dating back to 2016
