Investment domain name sells for a whole lotta pennies.
NameMedia, which sells domain names through its BuyDomains web site and Afternic DLS platform, has sold the domain name BestPennyStocks.com for 2 million pennies. That’s $20,000.
The domain name was one of 394 domain names the company sold this past week for a grand total of $606,000. The median .com sale price was $1,185.50 and the median .org/.net price was $750.
Another interesting sale is VGmail.com for $10,000, which seems like it could be a typo of Gmail. The domain hasn’t been transferred and the buyer is not yet known.
Here are other notable .com sales for the week:
And here are .org/.net sales:
TheHills.org was purchased by a Fort Worth, Texas church. Seems like a good use of collection plate money.
wow, all of these domains sold by NameMedia in one week? any idea what fraction were sold through BuyDomains and what fraction were sold through Afternic?
Andrew Allemann says
@ Mike – they sell about $600k worth of domains in a typical week. Almost all of them are sold through BuyDomains and their partner channel, such as GoDaddy.

I believe you are asking the same question that many of us have asked Namemedia over the years.
What percentage of the domains sold by Namemedia are owned by Namemedia and what percentage are owned by domainers?
Pete (who is no longer there) always danced around the question.
Most of us speculate that the majority of the sales are Namemedia’s domains.
Eventhough, 50% of the domains for sale are owned by domainers.
I agree that NM is excellent at selling domains.
i think VGmail.com is VG mail 🙂
could be virgin mail ( virgin island )
