Not For Peanuts

Wow, what a fantastic mix of domain name sales we had this past week as reported by DNJournal.

Beside usual dotcom high flyers such as Accommodations.com selling for $286,000 and QY.com at $100,000 we have a mélange of top level and country code domains, domains with hyphen, domains with 2, 3 and even 4 numbers in the name and even four words (!) domains (DestinFloridaCondoRentals.com).
It looks like everything is up for grabs and all that for $10,000 or more for the first twenty (20) highest priced sales for March, 2014.
A particular strong showing by Sedo, not only for most of the country code domains but also for other top level domains is noticeable.
Interesting is a sale of a dotfr (France) for $ 20,000 for Homify.fr and further down the list more dotfr with CGL.fr for EUR 5,900, CreditAuto.fr for EUR 4,000, Terreetmer.fr EUR 3,500. Additional country code .fr extensions are listed between $1,000 and $3,000.
As Domain-inventory carries many key word loaded domains, it is always of great interest to me what similar domain names have sold.

AmericanGreen.com sold for $25,000, BestOnlineCasino.co.uk for £12,950, RouteRadar.nl for €10,000 and DestinFloridaCondoRentals.com for $10,000.
Country code domains (ccTLDs) also sold well, as Consulting.de got €15,500, E-B.de brought in €14,000 and Shout.co for a nice $19,000.
And again the numbers had it – note 1905.com sold for a cool $57,000, CarParts24.com for €15,000 and 360Power.com for $15,000.
It makes me wonder what this insistence by some domain brokers is all about, to offer only domains without numbers, no hyphens, and as short as possible. Look at this weeks sales, wake up and smell the roses and see that the market has a mind all of its own - everything can sell and does! And not for peanuts either.
Please note that Domain-inventory has a whole section of '360' and other top level and country code domains domain names for sale and you can even watch videos about it.
Finally I like to point out that I am always pick out domains in my blog/review that are somewhat similar to what I offer for sale right here at Domain-inventory. This gives you a good base to compare prices. (Ours are very reasonable., and low priced). Most of my Sedo domains are available for 'BuyNow' price of only EUR499.00.
If you like any of the domains above, I can assure you that our domain inventory contains many domains that can easily matched with the above and most likely at a price you would love.
So visit our site and get the domain that’s right for you.

Also watch and listen to the previous entry.  VIDEO PREVIEW.

Whisky vs. Whisky

It's astonishing and remarkable, amazing and incomprehensible and basically leaves me speechless.

The domain, Whisky.us sells in January at $2750.00 and just a few weeks later Whisky.com sells for over $3,000,000.00 (yes that's 3 Million U.S. Dollars).

While I think that Whisky.us has been underpaid, it is a one name domain with a great top level (country code) extension, it definitely is quiet unique and everything a domain should be - a short one word, easy to remember domain name.

If Whisky.us would have been offered AFTER Whisky.com was sold, would it have brought in more and gotten a higher price?

Whisky.com on the other hand is way to high a price for a domain in today's market with all the different choices for extensions. It makes me think of Facebooks Whatsup buying price of $19millions and I wonder, is this for real?

But reading the story in DNJournal and similar stories elsewhere it comes down to the firm believe that the domain name(s) one owns, simply are worth the money ask for.

As any domain is a real unique name this sale again points to the worth of dotcoms and makes me wonder if any of the new extensions will ever rise to such tremendous value.

Only time will tell.
