These five domain names caught my eye.
Sedo’s monthly GreatDomains auction starts later today. There are a few domains in the auction that caught my eye (beyond just “it’s a short domain”). Also, there are a couple auctions in Sedo’s regular marketplace auctions that you might have overlooked.
GreatDomains Auction (starting today)
Cellars.com – The reserve range of $5,000-$10,000 seems reasonable for this domain name. Lots of wineries use the term in their names (and domain names), but I think the real opportunity is for an online wine shop. The downside is that it might fail the radio test, but I don’t think it does when used in context. It’s more of a brand than Wines.com, which Sedo is selling and has an asking price of $899k. In fact, given the choice, which would you pick?
DVT.com – Search Google for this three letter acronym and you’ll get a bunch of results for Deep Vein Thrombosis. There aren’t many ads running against it, but it’s a major health condition and I think there’s value in this domain beyond just a three-letter investment. The reserve is between $10,000-$25,000.
Monochrome.com – I think this domain name could make a great brand. The question is how good of an investment it will be with a reserve between €10,000-€25,000.
Regular Auctions (end times noted)
Duo.org – Because it has a reserve, it looks like the owner of this domain name created an auction on Sedo without an initial bid. But with ten bids (from 5 bidders), this domain might end up selling. The current bid is $850 and the reserve is under $1,000. The domain name was previously used by a charity. Ends today at about 1:15 PM EST.
PotMagazine.com – There’s no reserve on this one, so it might have been pushed to auction after the owner received an offer. Marijuana domains are hot, so it’s worth taking a look at this one. Auction ends February 22.
