After Dallas Cowboys back out of deal, Cowboys.com sells for $95,000 more.
Murray Thibodeaux has had a roller coaster week. First, he “sold” his domain Cowboys.com to the Dallas Cowboys football team for $275,000 last week at the TRAFFIC auction. Then the Cowboys backed out of the deal (a big mistake). The domain was entered into the Moniker silent auction and sold for $370,000. The attention on the Cowboys football team backing out ended up increasing the value of the domain.
Cowboys.com was the highest sale in the silent auction, which just concluded. Unofficial results show the next highest sale is Xmas.com, which sold for $294,000. Here are other notable sales from the auction:
FishingPole.com $58,900 – this will make a good fishing enthusiast site. I think FishingPoles.com is better, but this is still a good name.
Carburetors.com $40,000 – Tough to spell; worth buying the typo versions as well
HawaiianCruises.com $38,888 – Good category killer for Hawaii tourism
TrainSets.com $36,300 – Strong e-commerce potential
Math.net $35,300 – Strong price for a good .net; revenue potential and use unclear but many possibilities
PaymentCalculator.com – $35,300 – Great lead gen domain; provide a loan calculator and capture info for mortgage refinancing
CertifiedPublicAccountant.com – $32,450 – Long but instant credibility for any CPA
Medicine.mobi $21,839 – another good .mobi sale from the auction
Coupons.mobi – $21,175 – lots of potential for mobil advertising
AutoProduct.somc – $19,500
Here are some of the best deals and other interesting domains from my view:
FixedIncome.net – $935 – yes, it’s a .net, but a popular and high dollar term
BritishBlog.com – $807 – Won’t ever sell for big bucks, but new owner could certainly triple his money
HouseAppraisals.org – $770 – great potential for an appraisal organization or lead gen through search engine optimization
FreeRoomandBoard.com – $733 – four words, but a common term (especially on college campuses)
UninsuredDriver.com – $660 – having been hit by an uninsured driver, I know this is a big market
ArmChairQuarterbacks.com – $590 – fantastic name for fantasy football or football fan site
GreenFertilizer – $590 – too bad I didn’t see this one. Environmentally-friendly fertilizer is a huge market
BankruptcyFiling.us – $396 – I own BankruptcyFilings.info, which I’ve always hesitated to renew. Now I know it’s worth a few hundred bucks
ARMrefinance.com – $360 – talk about a great deal! Turn on any news program and hear about the upcoming ARM crunch
Guys.ws – $300 – huh. I own this domain and didn’t realize it was in the auction. But it’s nice to get the sale.
Guys.org – $9420 – I know the owner. A great sale!
DomainRegistrars.com – $3,530 – I realize that most non-domainers don’t know the term “registrar”, but this is a great domain
Fajitas.org – $1,320 – another one I sold.
