Displaying posts under "Expired Domains"
Domain sales charts — expired or otherwise — make for some strange bedfellows. Any given week presents an orgy of bizarre juxtapositions. What else but the domain market can bring together Bill Cosby and French Marxists? Malaysian tourism for New Yorkers alongside Azerbaijani gossip in the ccTLD of Western Samoa? (I’m referencing TheCosbys.com, Marxisme.net, TourismMalaysiaNY.com, and Bizimbaku.ws.) Few university libraries contain such diversity.
Lussumo.com, which went for nearly $5k at GoDaddy this past week, looks like a foreign-language term; but I have no idea what language that would be. Actually, there is (or was) open-source software called Filebrowser released by Lussumo. A notice at the top of the page says, “Development and support for the Filebrowser has been discontinued”; so perhaps Lussumo is no more.
Would FutbolArg.com ($4k) appeal to soccer-loving pirates? Possibly. But the “arg” must be short for Argentina. FutbolArg.TV is already developed.

National identities aren’t bought and sold every day. Accordingly, Tchadien.com is worthy of mention. Most readers will know this African country as Chad. However, Chadians observe — not English — but French and Arabic as official languages. So the French spelling “Tchadien” is much more important than our “Chadian” version.
As far as I can tell, TheCosbys.com never was a developed into a website about “The Cosby Show”. It led to unrelated material as early as 2001 and was backordered through Pool.com in 2004 before expiring again at GoDaddy last week. Maybe some day …
NameJet’s top-performing expired auctions during the past week happen to be fairly straightforward. Openers.com, StudyWeb.com, eMeetings.com, and MedicalSystems.com require less justification than Lussumos.com did. So I’ll skip to ArchDioSA.org ($1k). At first I read it as “ArchDiosa”, which would be a cross between the Spanish for “Archdiocese” and “Goddess”. (Not quite orthodox theology, that!) Instead, we’re looking at the Catholic Archdiocese using the abbreviation for San Antonio, Texas.

Speaking of Jazzitude.com (which I wasn’t), ClaudiaAcuna.com should find its way to Chilean jazz singer Claudia Acuña. Hopefully the buyer is a MusicFan.com, and the domain won’t be held hostage.
Next week, one domain auction that stands out to me is DropCatchDomains.com. It’s simultaneously a generic phrase — indeed, a major topic of these articles — and a close cousin to the DropCatch.com brand. In case you’re unaware, DropCatch.com is the expired domain service recently launched by the folks at NameBright.com / HugeDomains.com. Since DropCatch.com competes with NameJet, SnapNames, and other companies to drop-catch domains, there may be some bidding activity for this one. Notably, it has expired on neutral turf — GoDaddy.

“Sideral” is Spanish / French for the stars. We have a similar adjective in English — “sidereal”. But, whereas our English “sidereal” is obscure and technical, the French / Spanish “sideral” is richly visual, astral, cosmic. You can compare connotations by clicking here and here.
Tiajuana.com is a typo. California’s south-of-the-border Mexican destination is actually spelled “Tijuana”; and the Castello bros. own that .COM. Nevertheless, as long as we gringo tourists go to “Tea Uh Wanna” rather than “Tea Hwana” … some traffic will leak to the typo or to Google.
Speaking of southerly vacations, I’m off on one of my own. Consequently, this article only covers a 5-day period: July 17 through July 21.
Joseph Peterson reviews the past week in expired domain name sales.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, rather than explain GoDaddy’s $6.8k sale of DivaZoo.com, let me just say, “See for yourself!” This product line sells at mega-retailers like Amazon and Walmart but apparently has a wide distribution in smaller home decorating stores also. So if that brand is the buyer, then the domain’s price makes sense. (Note: I stripped the link’s URL of its affiliate identifier; so nobody gets a commission if you buy a hula-dancing hippopotamus.)
WebCapital.com intrigues primarily because it sold 4 days before yesterday’s launch of .CAPITAL by Donuts. As you might anticipate, Web.capital is reserved by the registry. We may well find that Donuts is the .COM’s buyer. Otherwise, split ownership looks problematic.
For similar reasons, the sale of PayClub.com (at $1280) is notable. Its alter ego, Pay.club, yields a “Not Found” result in whois lookups.
49MP3.com is perplexing as a $4.5k sale until you realize that the former website was ranked 32,104 by Alexa among websites worldwide. For comparison, DomainNameWire.com is currently #22,109 (11,555 in the USA).

Is a 4-word domain for an old movie really worth $1.7k (AmericanCasinoTheMovie.com)? For roughly the same price, a guy could buy AllInclusiveTravel.com — a strong, descriptive brand name for a lucrative industry that goes everywhere and won’t go away. Be that as it may, someone who’s after inbound links or who wants to maintain a preexisting website has nothing in common with domain investors, even though we coexist in the sales charts.
If I were to nominate a “Most Gratuitous” purchase this week, it might be Flirch.com. Why pay nearly $600 for “Flirch” when “Flurch” and “Flerch” remain unregistered? Maybe I should ask TheLifeMaster.com.
Among the better buys, I’d point out ChoralGroups.com ($130), NationalLaw.com ($306), and SafeDownload.com ($420). LetsGym.com is also a pretty cool brand name.
NameJet produced a strong Spanish domain sale. ElHeraldo.com (“The Herald”) will likely be used by a newspaper. Which paper? Take your pick: ElHeraldo.co, ElHeraldo.hn, ElHeraldoDeChihuahau.com.mx, ElHeraldo.com.ec, ElHeraldo.com.ar, ElHeraldoDeBajio.com, Heraldo.es, Heraldo.mx, ElHeraldoDeChiapas.com.mx, HeraldoDePuebla.com.mx, ElHeraldo.net, ElHeraldoDeCordoba.com.mx, ElHeraldoAustral.cl, ElHeraldoDeSaltillo.mx, HeraldoDeMadrid.es, ElHeraldoDeTabasco.com.mx, etc., etc. Colombia, Honduras, Mexico, Ecuador, Argentina, Spain, Chile … Virtually every city in every country has a newspaper called “The Herald” / “El Heraldo”.

Not all Americans realize that, in the United Kingdom, “let” means “rent” and “holiday” means “vacation”. Accordingly, the bidding was less intense for LetDirect.com ($705) and HolidayRental.net ($353) than we would have seen for RentDirect.com or VacationRental.net. The second of these — HolidayRental.net — was extremely undervalued, in my opinion.
PIN.us might prove to be the bargain of the week, given the popularity of Pinterest and its clones. But I’d say SummerProgram.com comes close. When parents enroll their kids in summer programs, they spend a lot more than the $355 purchase price of this domain.
Every week, I pick a few expired domain auctions / backorders for the week ahead. Honestly, you guys get my leftovers, since I don’t want competition for items I might bid on. But there’s plenty out there. Some of these are interesting:
Domain Name Venue Domain Name Venue 30Z.com GD Aktivity.com NJ Pre Canal.net NJ Pre Compliance.net NJ Pre CyberBlog.com NJ Pre IndianFootball.com NJ Pre ItalyDreamVacation.com GD LiuLan.com NJ Pre LiWeng.com NJ Pre PoliticsMagazine.com GD SAAG.com NJ Pre TaxErrors.com NJ Pre Vyper.com NJ Pre WorldCard.com GD
No matter how much you enjoy Indian spinach dishes, do NOT bid on Saag.com. Both Chrome and Firefox issue malware warnings for this domain. Vyper.com is a promising name for any hyper-masculine brand. TaxErrors.com are worth money to accountants. IndianFootball.com should be on people’s minds during the World Cup. And millions of Americans want an ItalyDreamVacation.com.
Sony Online Entertainment goes down thanks to expired domain name.
Sony forgot to renew a key domain name, SonyOnline.net, which resulted in an outage on its popular Sony Online Entertainment game network found at SOE.com.
While SOE.com did not expire, its nameservers are set to SonyOnline.net. When the latter went down, so did SOE.com.
Whois records prove differently.
SonyOnline.net expired on May 26, 2014. Network Solutions finally suspended the domain name this week, leading to the outage.
John Smedley, President of Sony Online Entertainment, apologized on twitter for the goof:
As for how Sony let the domain name registration lapse? Smedley tweeted “Notices sent to wrong email.”
The whois email on the domain name is firstname.lastname@example.org.
* The Register has completely changed its story without mentioning the changes, which is why their story now reads that it was possibly an expiration issue.
Last week, the expired domain market posted gains of … Well, nobody knows. Without any cost basis to refer to, who can say whether it’s a bull or a bear? In any event, the former domain owner gains nothing from the sale of a domain that expires, sells, and transfers. Right?
Gains.com, however, did finish at NameJet with bids up to $25.5k. So it looks as though the expired domain market is pretty robust.
Other NameJet auctions were more modest. At under $1000, MusicLink.com set an implied ceiling for Uniregistry’s .LINK extension. Supermarket.org doubled that price, showing that .ORG remains in high demand. WhatWorks.org ($1.4k) reinforces that impresion. But TooMuchSexy.org was too bad for Uniregistry too — not even $200.
InuitGallery.com may end up with the Vancouver museum that bears the name of that indigenous people. GiaoVien.net is Vietnamese for “teacher”. I’d call both those $400 purchases bargains except that NewYorkOfficeRentals.com is staring me in the face whispering, “$69 … You could have had me for $69!”

Even as a fan of .ORG, I’m not wholly convinced Torrent.org was worth $11,000. The extension doesn’t seem to fit the topic. In contrast, no casino could ask for a better word to brand itself by than “Fortune”; so FortuneCasino.com seems well worth its $9k at GoDaddy.
Ceuta.com ($6.8k) is a city in Spain — but more like an outgrowth of Morocco, which also claims it. As for ColdFusionJedi.com ($2k), it has nothing to do with nuclear physics or Luke Skywalker. It’s a programming language.

Buried in that GoDaddy list are a number of quirky or informative items. Someone clearly got up on the wrong side of the bed if he spent $75 to start a BlogOfBile.com! We have a pair of promising puns: Howbility.com (ability) and Bartnernet.com (internet). CouponsGuru.com ($909), AutomotiveGurus.com ($93), and SoftwareBuild.com ($106) together say something about the potential up side of .GURU and .BUILD. And then there’s the obligatory calendar-limited domain, rich in last year’s back links: 2013USChampionships.com.
Now for some items with auction or backorder deadlines next week:
Domain Name Venue Domain Name Venue 64B.com GD AllInclusiveTravel.com GD CopyrightShop.com NJ Pre CopyrightStore.com NJ Pre Debited.com GD EFW.net GD EyeForBeauty.com GD JZJZ.com GD LARentalCars.com NJ Pre LUBA.com NJ Pre MIXU.com GD MrTrademark.com GD Ocupar.com NJ Pre OWDO.com GD Reflap.com GD SeattleMicrofinance.org GD SkiGuy.com NJ Pre SpeechComputing.com GD StartupLand.com NJ Pre Xilan.com NJ Pre
64B.com = 64 bits. Reflap.com was once an app for video chat. Some guy out there must be the SkiGuy.com. If ever there was a city dependent on cars, L.A. is that city. So LARentalCars.com has a big market. And what would a week be without a CVCV or two: LUBA.com + MIXU.com?
Joseph Peterson reports on the past week in expired domain name sales.
What’s an UNCH? And how many of them would Dr. Seuss need to sell in order to recoup the $11.6k spent on UNCHS.org? Well, actually, some 36 years ago, the United Nations established its Centre for Human Settlements. Perhaps now they’ve finally secured a matching .ORG domain for their work on urban planning, upgrading slums, and so forth. Meanwhile, the corresponding .COM remains in the hands of Domain Holdings. No doubt, they see UNCHS.com as a versatile generic term.
Some people may be surprised to see CustomPens.com go for over $10k at NameJet. But pens ship easily and can be marked up in price thanks to design customization. Money well spent for a business owner …
911.cc is notable. By my count (referencing DNPric.es), there have only been 15 reported .CC sales above that $6.9k amount.
Valores.com means “securities” in the stock-market sense. Literally, it’s Spanish for “values”. Did it sell for over $5k? Maybe not. The domain was renewed 2 or 3 days before the overtime bidding war that raised its price 20-fold. So if it really was an expired domain auction, then the owner will be under no obligation to sell, rendering those bids meaningless except as an appraisal of his asset.
This sort of ambiguity is quite common in the domain industry. Bids and sales can’t always be taken at face value. Writing on each week’s bidding as I do, there isn’t enough time lapse to be sure that domains actually change hands.

Bizarrely, another ugly acronym .ORG leads last week’s GoDaddy chart. Weirder still, it seems to be related to urban planning too — just as we saw with UNCHS.org at NameJet. From what I can tell, IRPUMN.org belonged to the University of Minnesota’s Institute on Metropolitan Opportunity, which “investigates the ways that laws, policies and practices affect development patterns in U.S. metropolitan regions, with a particular focus on the growing social and economic disparities within these areas.”

This week, we can make some interesting side-by-side comparisons. Let’s start with the Chinese lucky number “8″. At NameJet, 880.org fetched $910. Add another “8″, and you’ll find that 8880.org went for $255 at GoDaddy during the same week.
Our other pair is something of a paradox. Last week at GoDaddy, CincinnatiWeddingPhotographer.com sold for $330. But CincinnatiPhotographer.com only achieved $87! The domain market is many things. Rational and consistent are a couple of things it ain’t.
Here is a small list of expired domain auctions for the coming week:
Domain Name Venue Domain Name Venue 360Link.com GD CEP.org NJ Pre DigitalExperts.com GD FortuneCasino.com GD GCW.org NJ Pre GetADot.com NJ Pre MREWholesale.com NJ Pre PHID.com GD PokerPlus.com NJ Pre POSU.com GD RAKD.com NJ Pre USTH.com NJ Pre WU.net NJ Pre YIPP.com NJ Pre
WU.net is bound to sell for a bit, given its brevity and the fact that it designates a family of Chinese dialects. Poker and casinos tend to be profitable. And, disgusting though they are, MREs are bought in large quantities by people, which makes MREWholesale.com commercially viable.
Would anybody like to place a bet concerning which city will ultimately control WeeklyHerald.com? Just about every large city has a newspaper of that name. Also, please tell me a joke that can justify the $355 spent on RealEstateHumor.com!
