Expired Domain Report: Total Number Domination!

Numeric domains take the lead in this week’s Expired Domain Report.

A few days ago, while reviewing the month of September, I measured China’s contribution to high-end sales at NameJet. (Hint: It wasn’t small.) And in my previous weekly article, I discussed the ongoing appetite for 6-digit .COMs and other numerical domains that “traders are obsessed with” these days.

Well, folks, the market is gluttonous. This past week, between NameJet and SnapNames, numerics took up three out of the four top spots. There’s something for everybody among these expired domain auctions– an NNNN.com, an NNNNN.com, and an NNNNNN.com. Such variety!

What follows is disheartening. ESPNStar.com ($3.6k) you won’t be blamed for thinking looks ever so slightly like the mark of a sports broadcasting network. And then there’s as obvious a case of typo squatting as any IP attorney could wish for: CreidtKarma.com ($5.3k). No, Tumlbr.com ($1.4k) ain’t much of a riddle neither. Even Outloo.com ($776), while it might theoretically be about out houses, looks a bit un-ok … as if, I dunno, someone omitted a final letter maybe.

‘Tis the season for typos of famous online brands, apparently. Upcoming auctions at NameJet include YooTube.com, UYouTube.com, YauTube.com, YonTube.com, and wwwUTube.com – one and all, I trust, registered in good faith. Seriously, though, domain investors are tired of being lumped together with cyber squatters; yet here we are sharing 1 grisly tooth brush in these sales charts. Thanks, guys!

It’s not all numerics and squatting. You know that ferocious yell of 8-year-old martial artists as they break your ribs and throw you to the floor? It’s called a KIAI.com ($2.6k). LeShop.com, NameJet’s runner up at $9.0k, may go to “the leading Swiss online grocery store” or to a women’s clothing brand.

Chatterjee.com ($1.6k) is an Indian surname. InvestGazeta.net ($1.9k) was a Russian website dating back 15 years. The Cook Islands east of New Zealand give us a hyphenated domain sale that, at $3.5k, is unusually high for the wholesale market. And KuangXi.com ($2.1k) may refer to some beautiful waterfalls in Laos (also spelled “Kuang Si”).

Want some free WealthAdvice.com ($1.5k)? Don’t flush your money down the drain on the likes of losangelestorage.com ($911) or floridattorney.com ($1.2k)! Spend a second counting those letters before you spend a grand. Domains like these sell over and over again, tossed around like hot potatoes. I already reported the 2014 sale of LosAngeleStorage.com. Now the 2015 sale. Don’t make me cover it again in 2016, please! And yet … FloridAttorney.com … What’s more florid than incomprehensible legalese?

Since we’re counting characters, you’ll notice the 7-digit numerical domain above passed $1.0k. With 4 consecutive “8”s, it did about as well as a seemingly arbitrary 6-digit numeric and even a 5-digit numeric beginning with “500”, which is a very round figure and (I should think) a useful mnemonic.

Rather than celebrate scalded skin, the WorldBurnsClub.com spent 15 years devoted to Scotland’s great poet. Here’s the poem that later gave Steinbeck his title, “Of Mice and Men”:

Smell.org ($970) is notable. With ProjectVision.com ($1.1k) that’s 2 senses covered.

CysticAcne.com ($941) doesn’t sound enjoyable, but the domain will make an intuitive reference site – perhaps featuring ImageZoom.com ($798) for high-definition zit viewing. TestUs.com was a real bargain at $602. It could mean medical tests, academic exams, or trying out some new product or service.

SavePaper.com ($805) sounds like a call to action that might be used to promote many a digital service. You’ve probably heard by now that some PinkSalmon.com ($697) is actually grey but treated with food coloring. Mainstream-Mag.com ($700) is the first of 4 magazine domains in these charts that are all bad enough for me to infer that their back-links must be superb. Varallo.com ($760) is a surname, perhaps deriving from this scenic town in Italy’s Piedmont.

In the singular, SunStudios.com ($565) would be the birth place of Rock ‘n Roll – Memphis, Tennessee, where records were cut by the likes of Johnny Cash, B.B. King, Roy Orbison, Howlin’ Wolf, Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, and this nobody:

Also worth visiting in Memphis – between blues and catfish – is the BrooksMuseum.com ($125), an art museum.

AssistiveTech.com ($469) is a little gem – a category-defining phrase many buyers overlooked. ChatLocal.com ($432) has applications that are obvious enough. DosCielos.com ($510) is an elegant Barcelona rooftop restaurant. The name literally means “2 skies”. While they require a jacket of you, they don’t seem to require their own domain.

Here come more numerics. Between $450 and $539, you’ve got 1 each of 5, 6, 7, and 8-digit domains. In such a narrow price range, you can draw some useful conclusions about how much repetition in the sequence is necessary to compensate for how much length. Not to be missed is one lone numerical .CLUB, which sold for $551.

CrackerBox.com ($389) reminds me that I’ve got the munchies. It’s a bit like the southern-food restaurant chain, Cracker Barrel, although thankfully much nearer to hand. BibleUFO.com ($354) is puzzling, but I’m sure some domainer will enlighten me.

StartBuilding.com ($255) – now that’s a slogan for domain portfolio owners to take to heart! VaporCigs.com ($275) have been a hot niche in recent years. CanadaTrips.com ($289) isn’t half bad for attracting American tourists. JewishWomen.org ($200) seems like a natural way to define an organization’s membership. In Spanish, OremosJuntos.com ($210) means “let’s pray together”.

Past the 6-digit item at $190 … past the 8-digit string at $200 … and on to a 12-digit domain at $174! Where and when does it all stop? I once had a landlord named Howie who threw great parties; so I suppose I’ve been Howied.com ($189). The sale of MaltaVillas.com ($150) should come as no surprise, given how aggressively these “villa” domains have been collected in the past 2-3 years.

      @ChuckWagen,

      Yes, I have a record of SNR.org. It was a public auction at GoDaddy rather than an expired auction. Because of that, it seems better to share the final price privately. You’re welcome to contact me.
