NYE.com Sells for $175k

NYE.com Sells for $175k


The NameJet auction for the NYE.com domain name ended today after quite a bit of extended bidding. The final sales price was $175,500 and the winning bidder had a bidder ID of domainnameltd. I don’t recall seeing that user ID in the past, so I can’t guess who the winning bidder is.

I held a contest on my blog to see who could guess the closest to the sales price. Guesses ranged from as low as $28,836 to as high as $350,000. Most of the guesses were far below the realized price.

The contest winner is “J S” who guessed $172,000, which was just $3,500 from the actual sales price. The winner will receive a $100 NameJet bid credit, courtesy of NameJet.

Thanks for participating in the contest! I’ll add this domain name to my domain monitor list to see who acquired the domain name once the ownership has changed.

    I’m guessing the true id of the namejet bidder ‘domainnameltd’ is J S, who made that bid so he could win your contest! Great strategy! :)

    Really surprised me actually, but in a good way. Great sale (and brilliant LLL combo).
