Energy company and bank invest in better domain names.
There’s little better than owning a nice, short domain name for your company. It’s part of the reason I sprung for DNW.com.
Within the past couple weeks two different end users have purchased three letter domains of their own.
First is Mack Energy Corp, which paid a hefty $99,000 for MEC.com. Mack Energy Corp. is an oil exploration company.
Second is First Fidelity Bank, which has been using the sub-prime domain name First-Fidelity.com. The bank paid $18,000 to get the domain name FFB.com.
Each week, hundreds of end users buy domain names on the aftermarket for their business. Here are some other recent end user purchases:
PremierAdvantage.com – The Venetian in Las Vegas paid $4,500
0. Perhaps it will be for a rewards program?
HealthInvestment.com – HIF Corporation, which operates as “Health Investment & Finance”, picked up this improved domain name. So far it has yet to forward it to HIFCorporation.com.
Candy-Apples.com – Candy Warehouse.com bought this delicious domain name for $2,500. It will make for a great SEO-driven site for selling caramel and confection coated apples.
FolioCloud.com – Fabasoft.com paid $2,500 for this domain name — the name of one of its products.
