Name.com Partners with Ganjapreneur on Domain Marketplace

6

ganjapreneur-logoGanjapreneur, a website targeting professionals in the cannabis and marijuana trade, announced a new domain name sales marketplace. As you would expect, the focus is on domain names related to the business of cannabis and marijuana. With the legal status of marijuana and cannabis usage changing in many states over the last few years, this industry is growing considerably.

The company announced the launch of the marketplace in a blog post yesterday, and Andrew Rosener, CEO of Ganjapreneur, shared some additional information about the domain name sales marketplace:

"I’m really excited to announce a new marketplace for cannabis domain names and any domain name that may be a good brand fit for an upcoming cannabis startup or product.  After all, many of the best brands don’t inherently imply cannabis at all.  The marketplace is highly curated (pun intended) and our objective is to eliminate all the noise (filter out low quality domains). To do so, we charge $99 per domain listing and manually review each and every domain → Read More

In a tweet published yesterday afternoon, George Kirikos reported that GoDaddy sold the valuable two letter BS.com domain name:




I reached out to Paul Nicks, GoDaddy GM & VP of the Aftermarket, and he confirmed that the company sold the domain name. Unfortunately for those who are interested, the sale price is not being reported by the company. Paul told me that GoDaddy did not have a buy it now price set for this domain name, but they "were entertaining offers north of $1M."

Tennis.com LogoAccording to a press release published earlier this afternoon, the Tennis.com domain name and business are pending sale as part of an $8 million+ deal. Sinclair Broadcast Group, a NASDAQ publicly traded company with a market cap of about $3.78 Billion, is buying Tennis Media Company, the owner of Tennis magazine and Tennis.com. The deal is worth $8 million in cash and there is the potential for up to $6 million in earn outs.

LJA.com Sells via Uniregistry

1

The LJA.com domain name has sold, according to my morning DomainTools email update. Prior to the sale, the domain name was owned by Future Media Architects (FMA). The domain name is now registered to a Texas company called LJA Engineering & Surveying, Inc.

After seeing the Whois change, I reached out to Jeff Gabriel from Uniregistry, as I know the company has represented FMA on the sale of some of its domain names (such as Kiwi.com). Jeff confirmed that Uniregistry brokered the deal, but he could not share the purchase price for the domain name. "We can confirm a sale occurred, however our client wished it remain confidential," Jeff told me via email.

My guess is that this was a (more…) → Read More


Did Apple Acquire WWDC.com Domain Name?

3

WWDCIn my morning DomainTools Registrant Alert email, I noticed that the WWDC.com domain name changed hands. The domain name is now registered to DNStination Inc., which is a privacy registration service offered by domain registration and brand protection firm MarkMonitor. The first thing I thought when I saw the registrant change is that I wonder if Apple acquired this domain name.

Apple operates its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is regularly abbreviated and referred to as WWDC. In fact, the meta description on the conference homepage within Apple's website has the WWDC abbreviation. Apple uses the conference as an opportunity to show off and introduce new software, technology, and tools for developers. The 2017 WWDC will be held June 5 - 9 in San Jose, California.

I did a Google search to see if there are any other obvious suitors for the WWDC.com domain name, and all of the top results I see are (more…) → Read More

12

DomainMarket.comMike Mann is planning to open DomainMarket.com to third party listings, he announced in a public Facebook posting today. DomainMarket.com has been used exclusively to sell domain names owned by Domain Asset Holdings, a company also controlled by Mike Mann.

The Facebook post makes it clear that there are certain requirements that need to be met for a domain name to be listed on DomainMarket.com:

"As I mentioned DomainMarket.com will open a domain brokerage asap, which will have very strict rules and be very automated, with very low fees and high quality services. Only .Com is Rule 1 (may expand with .co and .org). Rule 2 is must have a good appraisal or price range meeting our standards. Rule 3 is it has to point to our landing pages. Rule 4 is it uses our commerce platform. Rule 5 is length of contract. That's it, then you get the best at the lowest fees."

Third party domain name appraisers will be used to ensure the domain names listed by third parties meet the $10,000 minimum valuation requirement. Mann is currently → Read More
