NameJet Expired Domain Report

Joseph Peterson’s weekly review of expired domain name sales at NameJet.

Supply and demand do yield predictable results in the domain market, as with other markets. DataTrack.com was NameJet’s top expired sale last week at $8.9k. And was that price achieved because the brand name has a nice ring to it? Yes, in part. Was it because tracking data is crucial for our information age? Yes, that too. Was it because naming pressure will lead someone some day to inevitably choose this name? Yes, I’d say so.

But apart from the domain’s intrinsic or speculative value, it’s simply a case of 1 lady being fought over by multiple suitors. At least 5 “Data Track” websites might all want to be the DataTrack – DataTrackPLC.com, PSLDataTrack.com, DataTrackPI.com, DataTrack.co.uk, DTrack.com (known as the Data Track Group), not to mention several DataTrack branded products featured within other websites. What all of them might desire only 1 of them can possess.

WestCom.com ($3.1k) may serve to rebrand the 32-year-old California property management company found at WestComMGMT.com. Then again, she may go elsewhere. Chinese domain sales, which have competed to dominate our charts week after week, have been less prominent this week and last. Even JUJE.com ($2.3k), which looks like it could be Chinese pinyin, was purchased by a Korean buyer. Yet by the 8th highest sale, 813333.com ($1.6k), there is no doubt whatsoever that China is still at it.

Capitalization frequently involves interpretive choice. Should Zapid.com ($486) rhyme with “rapid”, or does it identify with “ID” as ZapID.com? And with Rebid.com ($2.1k) are we looking at auction runoffs or a rebellious “Reb” ID? In the case of ChemIcon.com ($2.3k), I tend to think no iconography is involved. Instead Chemicon would be a chemistry conference, pronounced to sound like the famous comic book convention, Comicon. Surely that’s it. And yet … the Nippon Chemi-Con corporation at chemi-con.co.jp is not to be dismissed.

Think360.com ($1.5k) is the opposite of narrow-minded, short-sighted myopia. A Diopter.com ($130) is a unit of measurement in optics. But that’s ALongStory.com ($150). Hadler.com ($1.4k) is a surname, while EdenBridge.com seems to be an Austrian prog-rock band with 8 albums and a website built on .ORG. Weirder still, Oakvale.com ($945) may be a fictional town in an XBox game rather than an actual place.

When last I checked, CentralPark.net ($830) still exists in a real New York City. Speaking of which, soon New Yorkers may be able to sip mango lassis at SaffronNYC.com ($80) or gnaw ribs at BBQNYC.com ($451) … perhaps CryingWhileEating.com ($460). Readers unsure yet whether offspring really are your cup of tea might try BabySamples.com ($242), nibbling the odd finger or toe much like edamame.

The best geographical domain in this chart must surely be Antarctic.net ($389), which cost as little as a Cabbage.net ($380). TokyoTips.com ($100) being another strong geo. PetSurgery.com ($820) I’d consider enormously undervalued, since it’s a topic that defines many veterinary careers. Privileged pets let their vets fly with them on private jets.

If, rather than painting the Sistine Chapel, your Michelangelo twirls Nunchakus.com ($425), then you were probably a SchoolNinja.com ($141), a fellow turtle. To our generation, SuperTrooper.com ($640) means shenanigans – hiding animal noises in earlier DNW articles, for example. Try to say this aloud without sounding ridiculous: 1GGJJ.com ($70), 2GGJJ.com ($101), … 9GGJJ.com ($79). What hidden significance are we missing? Must be something.

    Surprisingly, Juje does not have much Chinese connection. Baidu does not reveal any business in China using this name. Both Juje.com.cn and Juje.cn are unresolved.

    According to Urbandictionary.com, Juje is “a person who does dumb ormean stuff for no good reason other than to be a jerk,that spoils other peoples fun or good mood.” In fact, wiktionary.org says this word comes from the English word “Tuesday.” How about that?

    Juje.net is a very simple news site and there is (?) a company selling handbags & accessories on JujeFashionHouse.com

    It looks like you spend a lot of time in preparing each report. Thanks for the hard work.

    “1GGJJ.com ($70), 2GGJJ.com ($101), … 9GGJJ.com ($79). What hidden significance are we missing? Must be something.”

    1GGJJ rhymes with the Chinese expression 要干干净净 (need to be clean), and 2GGJJ is 爱干干净净 (love to be clean).

    Not sure about the 9 part. 9 rhymes with 久(a long while), 救(rescue),and 酒(wine). Let’s finish all the wine?

      That’s interesting and unexpected. Thanks, KC.
