The little guys.

This is what comes to mind when you look at the latest county code domain sales for Austria and Belgium.
While the top sale, KK.com comes out with flying colors and a $2,300.000 sale, the little guys, country code domain extensions dot-be, dot-at and some other ccTLDs, barely register sales above EUR 1,000.
Over in Belgium JackPot.be sold for $1,995 and Conex.be for $1,349.
In Austria Bugaboo.at sold for $1,283 and Durchdact.at for $1013.
Other country code domains include small sales for extensions .fr, .es .de and .eu.
Judging from the above it seems that the dot-coms still have it as this week sales listing at DNJournal shows.
Unusual, because of its hyphen, is Web-designer.com sold for GBP 24,001, BingeEatingDisorder.com for $30,000 and SeetheWorld.com for $25,000 the latest being three word domains and fetching a very nice price indeed.
The infinite length domain of the week goes to americanbuildingcomponents.com selling for $2,356. Still while americanbuildingcomponents only returns less than 7,000 results by Google, american building components return over 10,000,000. Go figure.  
Moniker/SnapNames got lots of dot-info sold like Immo.info $6,001, Horse.info $5,500, Shipping.info $3,500, Kino.info $3,351 and Traveling.info $3,210.
GoDaddy/Afternic concentrated more on dot-net domains as Concordia.net $5,388, Rehabilitation.net $5,000, Jobanza.net $3,000, GoldKeys.net $2,221 and OneTeam.net $2,088 shows.
As we can see the buyers and sellers are a bit all over the place, it remains to be seen when we again will see a ccTLD going under the hammer with a big bang (or any of the new gTLDs for that matter).

My, my, my!

My, my, my, would you look at all these two word and hyphenated Domains sold this week.
Here they are:
Two Word dot-com Domains:
Phonetracker.com  $ 50,000
GiveSmart.com $40,000
FirstBrothers.com $21,000
QuickMove.com $20,000
GoodJobs.com $15,766
The above dot-com all made it into the top 20 of this week.
Remarkable also a two word dot-org domain, TennesseeAnytime.org selling for $16,865.
Selling for exactly $ 5,000 are more two word dot-coms like cityshares.com, fairdeal.com, safarihouse.com, footballpurse.com, yogamedicine.com and oil-service.com, plus many, many more two word domains for under $5,000 are complementing the list.
Rather than going with the much touted and expensive new extensions, it might just be cheaper to buy a two word domain and thus avoiding all the cost associated with the new gTLDs.
What is interesting, that the German dot-de market just continues to play by their own rules adding more and more hyphenated domains to the (German) domain world, like:
Mon-Village.de €4,500, (My-Village)
Rent-a-doc.de $2,025
Urlaub-italien.de $2,025 (Vacation-Italy)
Teppich-center.de $1,553 (Carpet-Center)
Travel-test.de $1,350
Cardio-fitness.de $1,349
It pays, one could argue, not to include any Hyphen, as the domain commonsecuritizationsolutions.com sold for $3,500 by GoDaddy/Afternic proves.
Frankly I wouldn’t know where to insert the hyphens on this one, but I am sure there are several possibilities.
 
Vacationrentals.com – dot-com sold for $35,000,000 in 2007 and ever since the two word domains have brought in some real money as we can see in the latest sales report as listed at DNJournal for sales ending in November 3, 2013.

I wonder how much Vacation-rentals.com would have brought. Certainly not $35,000,000.
Hyphenated or not, visit Domain-inventory.com for the domain name that’s right for you.

 

Anything goes.

It’s Halloween, anything goes.
 
Here are my thoughts on selected domain sales as reported by DNJournal.
Leading the pack of somewhat unusual Domain names is QIKU.com selling for USD 80,000! That’s perfectly acceptable because the name is composed of only four letters and the high price brushes any questions aside.

Ziyi.com high price (selling for USD 35,000) can also be explained for its shortness of this name. Searches for both sites resolve to Chinese sites…
Sudidhaa.com (USD 28,000) must have been bought by the same company with a dot-in extension.
However, I wonder what DolphinFitness.com (USD 20,000) is going to evolve into. This is not a site yet.  SeaWorld comes to mind.
WannaGo.com (USD 20,000!) could be another travel comparison site actually wannago.de is on line as a ‘data recovery’ site.
 
Nintendo comes to mind when looking at MotoBoy.com (USD 15,000) let’s wait here for news from gaming news sites. Still there is no web site yet.
 
WeMobile.com (USD 13,000) sounds good too, maybe they offer some really great deals on flat Internet rates.
 
NuclearReactors.com (USD 12,000) must have been bought by a German recycling company since Germany will abandon all nuclear energy facilities all together and is now trying to get rid of all nuclear assets. (The site actually redirects to another web site).
 
Zweets.com (USD 12,000) Misspelled? Without any site yet.
Here is a domain that probably could sell any domain or anything else for that matter: MadeToMove.com (2,000).
Mayday.co.uk (£4,500) is the site to click on when you are in real trouble.
 
At the same time it shows that having the wrong extension for even a two letter domain name can be pretty useless, as uc.to (only fetched USD 1,355) and de.je (USD 1,600) shows.
 
The importance of a keyword loaded domain relating to a corresponding website cannot be overstated. Having perfect harmony between a business and its proper domain name will result in Google first page search results and increase traffic.
