Puzzle Sold for $500k as Afternic Sells Over $1m in Domain Names

9

Afternic reported its weekly sales results, and the leading sale was Puzzle.com at $500,000.  This ranks as the second highest publicly reported sale of 2011, in a tie with GamesForGirls.com. This domain name was a NameMedia property, and it was acquired by a company in Amsterdam. It’s not clear how the domain name will be used yet.

EJU.com was the second leading sale of the week, just shy of $100,000. This also appears to be a NameMedia house sale. Overall, Afternic sold $1.06 million in public .com domain names (above $1,000/each) this past week.

    I think IncomeProducingProperties.com was acquired by Mr Schwartz, he posted about it this week I believe.

    Which is greater, puzzle.com or puzzles.com? I think puzzle is more brandable, while puzzles would be more of a category killer.

    Is WWWFUTBOLTOTAL.com a typo? The only thing I’m seeing in Google is futboltotal.com.mx & futboltotal.com.co, and futboltotal.com doesn’t resolve. Maybe I’m missing something, but that is one of the worst names I’ve seen in a while.

    I personally like Puzzle.com… would be an interesting brand name. Not sure what it’s going to turn into yet.

    Congrats to Afternic – great sales!!

    I also agree, Puzzle.com is definitely better in my book that Puzzles.com

    If you don’t mind answering how many names do you sell on afternic every year?

      @ Steve

      I don’t mind. From memory, I’ve sold 100% of my domain names on my own, without assistance from aftermarket sites or brokers. I am a full time domain investor though, so it’s essential that I sell my domain names and I am more aggressive than most.

    Thanks, …. didn’t mean to offend you.

    @ Steve

    No offense taken :) I have some of my names listed for sale, but I generally seek out buyers or negotiate with interested parties on my own.
