Sale of ABL.com headlines sales week at Sedo.
Fresh off a million dollar sales week, domain broker Sedo is keeping the momentum alive despite not completing any six figure transactions over the past week.
The top sale for the week was ABL.com for $50,000. The seller was ABL Research, Inc. of Duluth, Georgia. The buyer appears to be Allied Bank of Pakistan, which has used the domain name ABL.com.pk for its web presence. The latest balance sheet for the bank show it has 334 billion rupees in assets.
Sedo sold two other three letter dot com domain names: GIW.com for $13,500 and FYC.com for $7,500.
Here are other notable sales for the week:
towelbars.com 12,000 USD
shlomo.com 10,000 USD
fyc.com 7,500 USD
newyorkers.com 5,100 USD GreatDomains
turbopoker.com 5,000 USD
investorflow.com 5,000 USD
lekarze.pl 14,000 EUR Doctors in Polish
welcome.in 5,250 EUR
ringtones.be 4,500 EUR
silver.biz 9,500 USD
I’m particularly impressed by the sale of Silver.biz, which ranks in the top 4 highest public sales of .biz of all time, according to NameBio.
Looking ahead to the sales pipeline, here are some domains currently on auction at Sedo:
OAI.com $20,000 – auction closes Tuesday
SR4000.com 12,000 EUR – auction closes Tuesday, car enthusiast web site
Payal.com – $8,000 – I’d stay away from this one. Although the description notes that a payal is an Indian accessory, the domain is clearly being monetized on PayPal typo traffic and earns thousands per year.
Move.us – $1,900 – nice play on “us”, similar to what people are doing for .me…although it also stands well alone for a moving company in the United States.
Canned.com – $310 – I think this is a great bargain. Not only is canned a food processing term, but it’s also slang for being fired. It would be perfect as a layoff tracker during the downturn.
BambooBoxers.com – $300 – I had to throw this one in there because it’s mine, and it was also mentioned in David Kesmodel’s The Domain Game book. I’m not going to get rich off of it, but it’s a good example of a forward looking hand registration paying off. On page 183 of The Domain Game:
Besides regularly reading Dwell magazine, Allemann subscribes to Wired, the cutting-edge technology magazine. In Wired, he regularly learns about emerging technologies, and registers a few names related to them. He also reads financial publications like the now-defunct Business 2.0, where he learned about bamboo shirts potentially replacing cotton, prompting him to register bambooshorts.com and bambooboxers.com.
I have no idea if the current bidder plans to use it for this purpose, but it makes for a good story.
