The Right Choice


Recent domain sales as they relate to our own inventory are very close to what we have to offer at Domain-inventory.com. Similar domains as those listed below and at our site are still available for immediate sale. 

We feature country code domains, short domains, top level and generic domains at reasonable cost and for sale at the domain broker of your choice through direct buy or domain name auctions.

Without further ado let's have a look what we like about domains having been sold at the global marketplace those past weeks up to the beginning of December 2014.

The stars, besides
Power.com selling for USD1,261,000 and QNB.com for USD1,000,000, were TorontoRealEstate.com sold in a private sale at USD 140,000, GoldPay.com and StripChat.com both at USD 50,000,  and FreeVideos.com sold by HuntingMoon at USD 42,500.

Besides these top level domains a few interesting top level country code domain sales are listed below.

Domains with a dot-de extension were plentiful, but some, like Smart-watch.de are English language domains with the dot.de extension, another prove that Germany continues to be totally comfortable with the integration of English words in everyday communication and in the German vocabulary.

Nice dot-de sales came in as Tanzkurse.de, Someday.de, Megabus.de, Wettbuero.de, Parfums.de, Immoangebote.de.

And look at this, hyphens refuse to go away as those two sales demonstrate: M-Studio.com brought in USD 7,995 (in December) and HCV-Therapie.de (another German extension domain) was sold for €7,500 =
USD 9,300.

Austria is also represented with a sale, Energetiker.at and even the French joined the market with a sale of Trotinette.fr, translating as scooter according to Google Translator.

Don't count out dot-co domain extension either. Drop.co was sold for
USD 17,000 (!) by (who else), sedo. Sedo, like so many times, pretty much again dominated the sales.

I haven't noticed any dot.uk sales yet, but dot-co.uk made the list. Positive.co.uk was sold for GBP 15,000, Toothbrushes.co.uk sold at USD 7,200, BestWebHosting.co.uk at USD 5,000 and 123Domain.co.uk at
USD 5,100.

Finally here is prove that most short and shorter domains are hard to come by, or why would something like OutdoorStringLights.com, BestWebHosting.co.uk, TeethInAnHour.com even come under the hammer? As you noticed these are three word domains fetching descent prices as reported by DNJournal.

As you can see everything made the list this time; long domains, country code domain, domains with numbers and even with hyphens even mixed language domains. See our listing at al the way back to April 2012 at SOLD.

We encourage you to consider any of our domains in our inventory for your investment, your website or business. Our domains are key word loaded domains, top level only, that are waiting to grace the top websites with corresponding content.

In that sense I am confident that our domain names are exactly the right choice.

Price Doesn't Matter

Here are a few examples showing how investment in high priced Internet domain names paid off well for domain buyers. The examples below show and explain, why someone paid considerable amounts of money, to own a particular domain and how they profit from it.
GunParts.com, a two word domain, was sold in May 2014 for $100,000 by Heritage Auction and leads to brownells.com, which bills itself as the world’s largest supplier of firearms.
This is a classical example what you can do with a top level domain name, to direct more traffic to an existing website. According to Alexa, brownells.com has a global rank of 23,361 and a United States rank of 4,766. Obviously, the $100,000 paid for GunParts.com was money well spend.

For those not familiar with Alexa, Google is rated number one (1) and Facebook number two (2). Alexa provides analytical insights to benchmark, compare and optimize businesses on the web.
Another high value domain, Whisky.com, brokered in February 2014 by the Castello Brothers, sold for a mighty $3,100,000. The site is up and running and yes, you've guessed it, it's all about Whisky. The owners, a German company called Whisky.com Media GmbH obviously had enough foresight to realize that, when a domain name meets the product, or vice versa, it appears to be not that expensive. So to acquire it makes perfect sense.
Another million dollar sale, in August 2014, is Check.com, changing hands in a private sale for $1,000,000. The domain redirects to another website Check24.de. Type check.com into your browser and it will open to Check24.de, offering price comparisons for finance, travel, insurance and more. Their Alexa global rank is 4,106 and Check24.de. rank as number 153 (!) in Germany.
Country code domains, ccTLDs, do not often make headlines with huge sales, but Chat.fr, sold by sedo just a few weeks ago for Euro 99,999. (about $130,000). Not bad for a county code domain name with a French extension. Interesting enough, it too is up and running as a German dating web site.
The same scenario can be found with Accommodation.com, which was sold in March 2014 for $286,000 by Virtual Property Experts. The domain is used for another site, too. This one being an Australian hotel reservation website Accommodation.com.au operated by a real estate corporation.
But high domain prices are not limited to only one word domains.
Even a three word Domain, TruckDrivingJobs.com, sold by DomainNameSales in August 2014, got $80,000. The website itself, by the same name, has an Alexa Rank of 1,314,937 and a U.S. rank of 233,048.
MakeSomeNoise.com is up and running as well. It was sold by DomainMarket in July 2014 for $40,000 and is owned by a Global Charity in the U.K.
Bigsale.com sold by sedo in June 2014 had an sell price of $50,000. In April of the same year we had many sales of  two word Domains,  PopupShop.com at $57,000, GolfSwing.com for $56,250, LEDLightBulbs.com for $50,000 and PopcornMachines.com sold for 45,000 just to name a few. All brokered by DomainNameSales.

Interesting is the fact that some of the domains, after having been bought, are now back on the market, which leads me to assume, that an even higher price is going to be paid next time.
Even a domain with a number and two words and a dot-net extension, 3DPrinter.net was sold for $60,000 by sedo in November 2013. That site too is using the domain for its website and has a great local ranking of 215,729 for the U.S. and fewer than 200,000 globally.
Just like top notch real estate in the best location, the value and power of a top level virtual real estate should never be underestimated.

The value and importance of the right domain in today's competitive market is such that price doesn't really matter.
