10 Recent Domain Name Acquisitions

89

I spend quite a bit of my time trying to buy good domain names. As I do every so often, I thought I would share a list of 10 domain names I recently acquired. These majority of these domain names were acquired privately, and the rest were acquired at NameJet or DropCatch.com.

Although this is not all of the domain names acquired recently, it probably offers a good glimpse of the types of domain names I buy. My focus tends to be on good, meaningful one and two word .com domain names. I have not bought any non-.com domain names in at least several months and probably longer than that.

I invite you to share the domain names you recently acquired in the aftermarket.

10 Domain names my company recently acquired:

  • Circulation.com
  • Affiliation.com
  • Facets.com
  • StrawberryPicking.com
  • Truro.com
  • Susquehanna.com
  • SendChocolates.com
  • Advantageous.com
  • Phenoms.com
  • Domestic.com

    Susquehanna.com, nice one! :)
    I think that was a private purchase, I guess you got it from Susquehanna Bankshares, which was acquired by BB&T in 2015. :)
    They still own the .net, which was their main website before being taken over.
    Domestic.com is very nice as well, it was previously owned by Admirals Bank, which until 2010, when it was purchased by Federal One Holdings LLC, was called Domestic Bank.
    Affiliation.com, another nice private purchase, let me guess … you got it from Ziff Davis.
    Just a quick search 😉

    Elliot, I saw the price you paid for Phenoms. What a steal!!! I am guessing not too many people saw that auction or it would have gone much higher. Congratulations!

      Wow Chapter.com is very great. I own Chapters.co and has a lot of generic traffic. i think chapter.com is more and more better than mine

    Amazing no one mentioned circulation.com. What a remarkable domain, and so remarkably versatile.

    These are the best ones in the list, although the whole list is great:

    Circulation.com
    Facets.com
    Susquehanna.com
    Domestic.com

    Not long ago (though no doubt hardly any noticed or recalls) I announced in one of the threads here that I would soon be revealing the discovery of category-owning .com available for registration. I may do that in this thread or perhaps another soon.

    Aaron Strong

    SponsoredByPassion(dot)com – I have been using this term for years in sports. Recently, we debuted the term at a Nike focus group. It was met with overwhelming enthusiasm by both Nike and the focus group.

      Interesting, nice one Aaron. So what do you do?

      Are you a supporter of .US, Aaron, and do you feel as strongly and as disappointed about its state as its strongest supporters do?

      In reply to Aaron Strong | October 8th, 2016 at 4:28 pm

      Aaron Strong

      I like .US…I am disappointed in its performance, although I remain hopeful.

      Hope you saw this thread and the comments there then, Aaron:

      I love .us domains. I agree with you. Disappointed by their performance, but staying hopeful.

      In reply to Aaron Strong | October 9th, 2016 at 7:20 pm

    John

    Okay, well on second thought, it seems it may be a bit too valuable to give away like that now. :) It came in multiple synonymous forms. I see someone regged one of the variants near the end of July already, one has been taken for years, and one of the two most valuable variants is still available.

    Sorry folks, move along please, pretend I never said anything. 😀

      i believe they call that prick teasing

      In reply to John | October 8th, 2016 at 7:20 pm

      John

      I really was going to do it, but I did a little research earlier and determined the domain might be less value-less than I thought so that I might want to reg it myself before long. Especially after seeing someone picked up one of the forms near August. Sorry. :)

      In reply to christopher brennan | October 8th, 2016 at 7:32 pm

      John

      And I’m still playing Russian roulette by leaving it unregged, lol.

    I use your posts as an indicator if it’s a buyer’s market and it appears so. Looks like I’ll be keeping a closer eye on namejet and dropcatch.

    Let me say, nice mix of diversified names. I like the fact you have keyword and brandables in there. Good job! I have sold names with a similar mix: http://dotbrandable.com/sold-domains/.

    I should mention that parking revenue for some names is huge. I have a lot of structured settlement, lawsuit loan, annuity funds etc. that generate hundreds in revenue for each name. StructuredSettlementForCash.info has made $300 + in the past 6-months in parking revenue. Most of us are .com purest but a .info name ranks as well as a .com in Google results.

    Also, many names that have expired are just sitting there for the taking. I picked up certifiedprofit.com this morning as a hand reg. Any certified financial planner is a potential customer. There literally thousands of potential clients for this name. My advice is to also focus on what makes money however you making aka parking $$$$$.

      Scott

      Wow! John, thank you for sharing that. That is definitely exciting to read. I’m hoping they eventually pick up. I totally admit that there is risk involved and the extension may never take off. But for the pricing I’m paying for the dot us domains, I really can’t complain. My dot us domains make up a small fraction of my collection of domains (majority are .com). I just enjoy the gamble and hope one day there will be a nice payoff. I’m in no rush to sell.

      In reply to John | October 9th, 2016 at 11:53 pm

      Scott, check this out now:

      “.US Hosts its Annual Town Hall Meeting”

      http://www.circleid.com/posts/20161013_dot_us_hosts_its_annual_town_hall_meeting/

      Why am I not surprised that would be posted on a site which to the best of my knowledge does not allow you to post anonymously using a screen name?

      In reply to Scott | October 13th, 2016 at 9:12 pm

      John

      Correction, more like they require your name for sign-up, and pretty sure I’ve been blocked a few times before trying to do so and post anonymously. But I won’t lie and give a fake name, which would be easy.

      In reply to Scott | October 13th, 2016 at 9:16 pm

      Hi John, thanks for sharing the link. I just signed up to it. Very curious to hear what they are going to say. Hopefully things will be moving in the right direction.

    All good. I believe the best to be Domestic.com.
