About us (Domain-inventory.com) short version:

We sell vintage domain names since 2008. All our domains are either top-level domains, i.e., dot-com or country code domain names such as dot-de.

Our domains are listed, offered and sold through auctions and direct buys, through sedo.com, flippa.com, United Domains, and Godaddy.com. We have a PayPal account and work with escrow.com. 

Domains are promoted through advertisement and postings at our websites - Blog - Facebook - Twitter - Pinterest - and LinkedIn. Please contact us with any question you may have. We are here to help.

About us (Domain-inventory.com) extended version (includes a bit of domain history).

My first domain, BBQSteakhouse.com was acquired back in 2008. I listed it for sale on my site, Domain-inventory.com. Starting a domain selling business so late in the game, was not exactly perfect timing.

The first domain registration happened way back in 1985.

The domainers who started buying and registering domains before 2008, were quoted that it was too late to get into 'domaining' now and that I was jumping on a running train. At the same time, short domains were all but gone, sold, registered or in possession of domain name investors.

Since all the short domains were gone, another criterion emerged as equally important: KEYWORDS. As long as a domain containing one or two keywords, the domain was considered a valuable piece of real estate.

Some of the highest value domain sales are listed below.
VacationRentals.com, 35 million, 2007
PrivateJet.com, $30.18 million, 2012
AsSeenOnTv.com, $5.1 million, 2000
GiftCard.com, $4 million, 2012
AltaVista.com, $3.3 million, 1998
More recently these sales below were confirmed in 2016 by (DNJournal.com).
BabyGames.com $250,000
CarGames.com, 200,000
OrganicBaby.com, $168,000
ForexBrokers.com, 150,000
TotalCare..com, 120,000

Numbers too came into play. 360.com sold for $17 million in 2015.
  • In other words, if you were to have a website about New York, it would be best to have a keyword domain, like NYNY360.com.
  • If your business were selling saris from India, a name like SarisofIndia.com would be absolutely perfect to promote and sell saris over the Internet.
Because of the non-availability of the short domains, companies resorted to creating 'none words,' like Tumblr, Flickr, and others. Basically, these words could not be found in any dictionary.

When finally the most obscure names were taken too, held by those squatters or people just ran out of ideas, sanity slowly returned.

Domain names like CasinoMetropole.com, UponEverest.com, OrlandoUniverse.com and other such keyword loaded domains are now back in demand. The advantage to such domain is that they respond directly to search words entered into Google, Bing, and Yahoo and trigger more traffic.

Apparently using such a domain to either build a new start-up business or using/linking to an up and running site. Linking will result in higher search engine ranking and more traffic, which is vital since there are over 1 billion websites on the web today.

And your competition is out there in force, en masse, in the millions. One example: You want to sell Christmas items? Search the web for 'Chrismas, ' and Google returns about 1.970.000.000 results (in 0,62 seconds). Even 'Christmas Mansion' returns about 45.100.000 results (in 0,51 seconds).
Our approach always has been, that a domain name should reflect a particular category, profession, location or service. Even combining two or three words to give the domain more clarity and definition for its type.
One example: On May 10, 2017 LongIslandRealEstate(dot)com (four words!) sold in a private transaction for $52,500. (Source: DNJournal.com). 
Another more average sale in the German language market, on May 26, 2017, was for Mietenstattkaufen(dot)at for Euro 5,000. (translates as renting instead of buying).

Sometimes you got to say what you want to say because NNNN.com doesn't always make any sense

A domain like PreciseCosmeticSurgery.com or CroatiaTravelCenter.com or IndianPalaceResorts.com does not require an explanation of what the business is all about.
Mind you, that we also have some very unique, short domain for sale. We offer Quyre.com, XHS1.com, IGWB.de and much more. Send me an offer or buy outright.

More of the latest updates, current auctions and domain sales are listed at NiccosBlog.com.
There are two easy ways to acquire a domain name from us. If a domain you like is in an auction, you can directly place a bid. A Domain, not in an auction, has a set price and can be bought outright. Or you can make an offer.
So, place your bids at sedo or buy outright. Free transfer service and secure payment guaranteed. You can pay for a domain via credit card, PayPal, or wire transfer. Choose an English, German, French or Spanish Domain. The right domain is your key to success!
