10 Recent Acquisitions

45

If you’re in the US, I hope you are having a nice Independence Day holiday today. Seems like the East Coast is having some relief from the heat wave. Wherever are, I hope your July is off to a good start.

As I do on occasion, I want to share some of my recent acquisitions with you. I am constantly buying domain names to keep a strong inventory. These ten names were either bought in the aftermarket or purchased at auction, and the purchase prices of all of them are private. You can see a more comprehensive list on my company’s website if you care about what names I own.

I haven’t done any hand registering in the last few weeks (can’t think of any off the top of my head anyway).

Ten Recent Acquisitions:

  • BrandManagement.com
  • PetCollars.com
  • PennsylvaniaRealEstate.com (bought it with Michael Berkens)
  • ChineseProverbs.com
  • KJP.com
  • ConsultantBlog.com
  • Broads.com
  • HelicopterBroker.com
  • CorporateReputation.com
  • ShipDesigner.com

As always, I welcome you to share your acquisitions and hand registrations if you’d like.

    You like to invest in generic descriptive. I like KJP dot com – the domains on that list look like they cost you a pretty penny! The other one I like is, Broads dot com. It reminds me of the 50′s, when “a broad should be broad like a broad.” – South Pacific. It makes me laugh! Latona would like it . . .

    DualScreenApps dot com registered last month, to go with the singular registered last year. It’s a generic descriptive, just like yours!

    Tony

    As a PA property owner, I like PennsylvaniaRealEstate.com. Of course I’ve heard multiple horror stories about selling names to realtors, though.

    Our latest hand reg was lawyerbots.com

    My favorite recent acquisition is neuroshock.com. I was pleasantly surprised when TESS gave it the green light.

    Great list, Elliot. I would wish you luck with them, but you obviously don’t need it.

    July 4th, 2012 at 1:06 pm

    @ Tony

    I’ve sold several RE names this year surprisingly. I still have two though – couldn’t work out deals at the prices I wanted. Eventually they will sell.

    I’ve had mixed success with them though.

    I bid against you on at least three of those names on Namejet :) I may be one of the only people that know exactly what you paid for all those names since I was right there with you on almost every one. Enjoy the rest of the 4th

    July 4th, 2012 at 2:02 pm

    Aggro

    LOL

    You sold callcenters.com?

    Conveneniently on Moniker Privacy WHOIS

    And nice generic WordPress blog

    As for bragging about selling “7 figures worth of domains”…woop de do

    That’s like saying I sold a 2 bed apartment in Manhattan or London…LOL
    Only difference is, didn’t have to spend all that time buying, selling, fending off the $500 offers to get there

    July 4th, 2012 at 2:07 pm

    Elliot Silver

    “You sold callcenters.com?”

    @ Agro

    I did… I had it parked at Voodoo and the buyer changed DNS recently (last week I think). I offered his company the opportunity to post a guest article on my blog when the site is ready. I assume the WordPress blog is temporary. I wrote a bit about the sale here: http://www.domaininvesting.com/saturday-updates-0233

    “As for bragging about selling “7 figures worth of domains”…woop de do”

    I agree… 7 figures could be $1m on 9.999m, so it doesn’t really say much, and that’s how I like it. If I wanted to be flashy or have more attention, I’d report my sales. I don’t think that helps my business or personal life though.

    BTW, in case you’re counting, the 7 figures is from 2007 through today, and this is my only “job.” I also don’t “come from money.” I’ve been very fortunate in this business, but it has taken a lot of hard work researching, negotiating, and making deals.

    “I bid against you on at least three of those names on Namejet”

    Ha ha… domainers bidding agst one another , in conference, they are buddies but when comes to business, it is back stabbing.

    Money talks!!

    Of your list above I like PennsylvaniaRealEstate.com the most. FYI I recently received a $xxxx offer on a .TV acquired within the last few months.

    Nice domains, especially BrandManagement.com
    HelicopterBroker.com has a lot of potential, affiliate programs exist.

    Recently caught HelicopterSpecialists.com in auction. Also handregistered helicopterspecialist.com (altough I understand these are nowhere as good as yours)

    Its funny you mentioned CorporateReputation.com as I was researching it myself. I just bought the name BoxingFan.com and intend to turn it into my boxing blog as Im interested in boxing. Great names I really like PetCollars.com and BrandManagement.com. I’ll keep an eye out for CorporateReputation, however.

    July 5th, 2012 at 1:36 pm

    patti

    You can see them at Namebio. They had some recent updates last month or so where they’re including a lot more sales, inc. NJ

    pennsylvaniarealestate.com
    chineseproverbs.com
    consultantblog.com
    helicopterbroker.com

    You can see what all those went for at Namebio

    Good name btw.

    July 5th, 2012 at 7:22 pm

    MicroSourcing

    These are valuable acquisitions. I expect domain names like brand management and corporate reputation to fetch high prices, given how these areas are being prioritized by online and offline businesses.

    July 5th, 2012 at 11:05 pm

    Mitch

    @Shane

    “I may be one of the only people that know exactly what you paid for all those names”

    Not really. Those 3 names (price, date, venue) are listed
    at a certain domain sales website.

    July 5th, 2012 at 11:13 pm

    Ezequiel

    Why did I decide not to bid on ChineseProvers.com? Could I have lived only from this if I had?

    July 5th, 2012 at 11:57 pm

    Mitch

    OlderAdults.org
    (Goes well with my AdvanceCare.org)

    July 6th, 2012 at 9:06 am

    ChineseBookshop.com

    Good luck with Chinese Proverbs! Seems a good name. Will you just be using the English sayings that are attributed as “Chinese proverbs” (some of which are nothing of the sort) or actual Chinese proverbs?
