Podcast: Aftermarket sales at GoDaddy, NameJet, DropCatch and Flippa. Plus a reverse engineering of recent End User sales at Sedo and BuyDomains.
It was a slow week for brandable domain name sales as we didn’t see any sales reported in the five figure range. The top sale was Mitsai.com which went for $7,000 on Sedo followed by the duo RapidCare.com and RapidPay.com which took $5,000+ a piece on DropCatch.com. There’s a few solid names again at this list that will make for some great brands such as BabyStar.com, CapitalCity.com and FashionCloud.com. These are the perfect examples of two keyword brandables. A invented name I really like is Yanga.com. I had a backorder placed for it but there was too much interest for it once it landed on DropCatch.com so I missed out on it.

It was a great week for brandable domain name sales as we can report the second 6 figure sale of the year with Mera.com selling for a cool $132,500. It is the highest reported brandable domain name sale of the year so far and it has all the characteristics of a great brandable. The buyer is Mera Software Services and is an upgrade from the meranetworks.com url. We have a couple of other large sales with Bando.com and Dopo.com both fetching 5 figures on Sedo. Alternative spellings are hot at the moment with Krush.com going for $6,652 on DropCatch and Tunez.com pulling in $5,999 at auction site Flippa. Other names I like on this list are Lero.com, Vinder.com and SpaceCoin.com
