Digital.com goes up for sale.
Technology giant HP is offering the domain name Digital.com for sale, but it’s going to cost you.
The domain name has been listed in Moniker’s upcoming live domain name auction taking place in Prague October 6. Reserve price: somewhere between $1 million and $5 million.
HP got the domain name when it acquired Compaq.
Moniker will auction off 80 other domain names during its DOMAINfest conference live domain name auction.
Among the domains are “me too” domains. I call them “me too” because they obviously hope to capitalize on recent big dollar sales.
But in this case the me too domains are good ones. It’s not like they’re trying to sell MyGunsOnline.com because Guns.com sold for $800,000 earlier this year. Instead, it’s Gun.com. Also on the block is SlotMachine.com, trying to capitalize on the $5.5 million sale of Slots.com.
Gun.com has a $750k-$1M reserve, and SlotMachine.com is above $1M. These seem lofty, but you never know.
IdeaLab is also getting in on the action, offering Tools.com for somewhere over $1M.
Here are some of the domains in the auction that I like within the stated reserve range:
Retailer.com $25k-$50k – would be good for a magazine or retailers’ consortium
ShortSale.com $50k-$100k – I’d love to see a site with all of the listed house short sales in the area
Shout.com $250k-$500k – I like this at the lower end of the range
