A pharma company spends $133,000, and Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action buys a three letter .us domain.
December is usually a good sales month but the latter half is also affected by the holidays. This week Sedo sent us two weeks of of sales data, headlined by TCP.com for $133,000.
Also included in DNW’s end user list this week (and denoted below) are two domains purchased by end users that didn’t take place on Sedo. One was purchased by Barack Obama and the other was a $22,500 new TLD sale!
OK, let’s get to the list:
(You can view previous lists like this here. If you’d like to learn how to sell your domain names like these on Sedo, download this report.)
TCP.com $133,000 – the domain is still in escrow but now forwards to T.C. Pharmaceutical Industries’ website.
Cave.com $61,350 – Website development company Electronic Creations Corporation. There’s a coming soon page on the domain, so I’m going to count this as an end user sale.
Innovation.group $22,500 – The owner of Innovation-Group.com bought this domain through DomainTrade.com.
CAMC.com $15,000 – The Caravan Club offers discounts for “pitch sites” for RVs. I’m not sure exactly what this domain stands for.
NUCU.com $15,000 – I’m not sure what cooking/kitchen company Vollrath plans to do with this domain, but at $15,000, they must have plans for it.
SmallBusinessLoans.co $9,999 – the buyer, who is listed in whois as an individual, has already created a site about business loans.
Https.net $9,999 – this is a smart domain purchase by CertCloud, Inc, an SSL company.
InfinixAuthority.com $8,550 – The domain has whois privacy but it’s now a developed site about Infinix phones.
Cab24.com $5,000 – The Berlin-based buyer has an email address that suggests he’s a chauffeur or owns a livery company.
Sulforaphane.com $3,388 – NutraMax Labs sells supplements, including some that “supports sulforaphane production”.
GetMot.com $3,000 – The owner of GetMot.co.uk (which is currently password protected) bought this domain.
WebCRM.it €2,500 – webCRM A/S is now forwarding this Italian ccTLD to webcrm.com.
BrainCenter.org $2,500 – Neuroscience Centers of Florida Foundation, Inc. in Miami.
BioFutura.com €2,000 – A Netherlands company by the same name.
Dmaker.com €2,000 – As best I can tell, Argentinian company Dmaker SA also owns the domain dmakerstore.com.ar. It’s not active, though.
Discover-The-World.com $2,000 – The travel site at Discover-The-World.co.uk bought the .com equivalent.
SafeWatch.com $2,000 – AirGas sells a number of safety products.
OFA.us $427.50 – Greg Ricks sold this to Barack Obama’s Organizing for Action. The domain forwards to BarackObama.com.
Eric Lyon says
It’s nice seeing 3 letter .com’s (E.g. TCP.com for $133k) still holding a 6 figure average. Just goes to show that the new gTLDs haven’t effected .com value too much.
I think every year that passes it gets more value, the more confusion new gTLDs create, the more unique and exclusive the neighborhood .com becomes..
I find it utterly confusing to see many “meh” domains selling for soooOOo much money. I have hundreds of 4-character and one-word domains, and juicy two-word domains for years and years, and feel lucky when one or two sell for 20 to 50x what was paid for them. Google “sweetest domains” for some examples, and maybe you’ll understand my sincerely confounded feeling. Still, very happy for those who pull these fantastic numbers for some domains that certainly do seem at least somewhat silly.
