.Org domains with rich history top expired domain sales

A three-word .org domain name with lots of backlinks was the top expired domain sale at Web.com last month.

Web.com’s domain auction platforms grossed nearly $300,000 from sales of domains at $2,000 or more last month. The combined total includes both NameJet and SnapNames.

Surprisingly, a three-word .org led the charts. KnowYourStuff.org sold for $30,600 on NameJet.  The Insurance Information Institute used the domain for a service for inventorying your home but discontinued it in 2007.

The domain’s backlinks certainly drove the bulk of the value. It has links from NYTimes.com, Lifehacker, Zillow, NerdWallet, and many insurance websites.

The second-highest sale was also a .org. CFAH.org sold for $24,300. Again, this was because of its prior use by the Center for Advancing Health. It appears that whomever bought the domain has replicated the former site that used the domain.

Here’s a full list of sales on NameJet and SnapNames last month that were $2,000 or more. Please keep in mind that this includes both expired and other aftermarket sales.

  1. Observer says

    Is it possible that the sale of CFAH.ORG was somehow cancelled and that the domain is owned by the prior owner?

    Would that explain why it’s back to the original site?

      • Observer says

        Wouldn’t they be inviting a UDRP attack by the previous registrant who could claim that they let the domain expire by accident?

        The fact that they are putting up the previous owner’s site would make it an easy victory for the prior registrant, right?

        I can’t understand how the buyer believes this is somehow a good way to protect his $24k investment.

        • Andrew Allemann says

          Not just a UDRP, but a copyright infringement.

          I should clarify that I don’t know for sure. The DNS changed to CloudFlare, so it’s possible that the original owners got it back somehow.
