Recent Acquisitions

70

From time to time, I like to share some of my recent domain name acquisitions. I have not really done much hand registering lately, but I have acquired a number of domain names in private and via auction.

Listed below are several of my recent acquisitions. As always, I welcome you to submit your recent acquisitions, too, and I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on the names I bought.

  • WhistleblowerLaw.com
  • SepticRepairs.com
  • LifestylePlanning.com
  • HomeStorage.com
  • Determinations.com
  • LivingWillRegistry.com

What have you purchased in the last few weeks?

    2 or 3 of them are very narrow for me in terms of ever finding an enduser
    however, none are bad
    determinations.com is always a seller

    I don’t know about lifestyle planning, no doubt worth money to a ‘certain group’ of people shall we say

    but the standout domain is;

    HomeStorage.com

    beauty is a high ticket sale to enduser or is one of those domains you can really build out and make money as a domainer, and they’re reasonably rare

    Love determinations.com!!

    I have acquired
    AnxietyCounseling.Com
    AbusiveBehaviors.Com
    MentalDisorder.Net (hope you like the website)
    LucidDreaming.Net (hope you like the website)

    November 12th, 2012 at 2:53 pm

      Jason

      You should go after MentalDisorder.org instead. Your dot net is good.

      LucidDreaming.net is a good domain. AnxietyCounseling.com has good potential with the current state of the job market.

      November 15th, 2012 at 3:04 am

    Anticareer.com

    Is there a rule of thumb you stick to when buying domains to resell? Meaning, do you spend up to XX% of what you think you can resell them for? Or a fixed dollar amount of profit you need (i.e. if you buy something for $100 I’d guess it is not worth your time if you could get a 3 bagger on it so you’d be looking for a dollar amount profit)?

      Elliot Silver

      Nothing really set in stone. I generally buy domain names that I think I can sell for many times what I paid. If I fail, I know that I will at least make my money back and then some.

    HomeStorage.com is a killer acquistion, 20K+ exacts monthly – Congrats Elliot.

    November 12th, 2012 at 3:10 pm

      Tony

      I see 2,900 Global and 1,000 Exact. Not sure where you see the 20,000+.

      November 12th, 2012 at 5:46 pm

      Jason

      Your search data is far off the mark. It is more like 1,000 exact match searches per month rather than 20,000+.

      “Home storage” is not like “closet organizers”.

      November 15th, 2012 at 3:08 am

      Jason

      He is probably using online domain valuation tools that show 22,263 exact match searches.

    Great pickup with HomeStorage.com as it applies to both personal digital / cloud capabilities as well as household items / junk which needs storage.

    My two recents are….

    WeedCritic.com – great job / website opportunity in light of the recent US efforts towards legalisation.

    DeFriend.Me – a potential brandable App for social media users wishing to defriend specific undesirable ‘friends from their social networks.

    Thanks Elliot.

    HomeStorage.com is a great name — a never-ending battle that pretty much everybody faces (I have EntrywayStorage myself).

    HomeStorage.com is a great name….also can be used for interior architects to specialise/maximise home storage design services….

    HomeStorage.com is a really nice domain Elliot.

    I haven’t acquired many .com’s in the last few months and the few I have got are a bit strange but they were all cheap ($30-$80) and they all kept their age (1998 – 2005) so I am happy with my mining:

    Viralize.com – $70
    LoanRelief.com – $70
    SexualAppetite.com – $50
    TalkHot.com – $70 (Sold at $1500 already)
    HardcoreSexCams.com – $80
    HipHer.com – $50
    LiveAss.com – $80
    SexyToons.com – $80
    Downcount.com – $30

    I got TalkHot.com for $70 and sold immediately for $1500 (too cheap but quick ROI). Also I turned down a $1500 offer and a few other lowball offers on LoanRelief.com that I got for $70. SexyToons.com is getting 50-100 uniques a day so that is good. Viralize.com was questionable but I figured I would take a chance with one of these almost dictionary words and viral is such a big term now. Downcount.com I have no idea but at $30 for a pronounceable .com that was reg’d in 2001 I figured WTF! HardcoreSexCams.com I debated as adult sucks now but I do still make money on my cam sites and it has a 1999 registration so I got it for $80 (a week later Rick Schwartz sold FreeSexCams.com for $150k so now I am trying to figure out the value difference between the words “free” and “hardcore” lol). All in all I am sure I will make a decent ROI on these…

    I just picked up jobs411.com

    November 12th, 2012 at 5:09 pm

      MarkH

      Nice.

      I have turned down decent enough offers on Movie411.com over the years and sold Golf411.com a few years back…

    I really like HomeStorage.com , Very Good Domain in my opinion .

    Tony

    Just a tip to some: don’t rely on Estibot solely for your search statistics. Sometimes it’s grossly off and a lookup on Google Adwords tool is required. If you buy based on stats, that could be a fatal mistake.

    November 12th, 2012 at 5:57 pm

    RaTHeaD

    got CustomMadeKnife.com for $12
    and WoodBaseballBat.com for $7
    not earth shaking but in a pinch i could probably get $20 for either of them.

    November 12th, 2012 at 5:58 pm

    Michael Carter

    Definitely agree re: homestorage.com – solid name.

    Here are two reg’d last month:

    HomeStorage.com sounds nice.

    Recently I acquired a rare aftermarket .COM of seven characters – but the transfer has not yet cleared so I’ll wait to announce. :)

    November 12th, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Jen

    Homestorage.com is sweet.

    Hand registered:

    nursepractionerlicense.com
    nursepractionerscholarships.com

    I know the search counts for these suck but with all the hoopla over obamacare and my home state of Ga. and several others poised to explode in the healthcare arena, these will be keepers for awhile.

    November 12th, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    Ugh, septic repairs.
    Spent about 5K on that last summer.

    If the leadgen on that isn’t lucrative yet, give it time. There are still a few highly lucrative local service verticals out there that are extremely weak on leadgen, which itself, as a whole is still ridiculously immature, bundling very hot leads for jobs worth many thousands of dollars with cold, weak leads and selling them all piecemeal for low prices.

    I also saw HomeStorage on Namejet and think that’s your best recent pick-up. I also like SepticRepairs, being an environmental engineer and think you should be able to get a good price for that one too!

    My most recent pick-ups are:

    GetATow.com
    PriceOil.com
    BigRaise.com (raise.com sold for $40K last week on SEDO)
    FoolMe.com
    CatsPlus.com

    Love to know what you think. Thanks again for the opportunity to post!

    Hey Elliot

    I dont know if you would do this but it would be really interesting to see what value you see in your own acquisitions but letting us readers see what you bought them for. Obviously, HomeStorage.com is a good name but I for one would love to know at what cost?

    I can only afford to hand reg and so my recents are:

    SouthBankProperty.co.uk

    Hi Elliot,

    I like your HomeStorage.com and SepticRepairs.com the best.

    Given the recent changes in Google’s algorithm concerning EMD’s, it looks like some of these longer domain names could have a tough road ahead unless they plan on coming up with a banging site.

    Great post, I dig your blog!

    Just realise that LAhotels.com sold for $100,000 this week.

    November 14th, 2012 at 12:12 am

      Jason

      Your LA City Hotels by far lacks quality. Not good comparison to LA Hotels.

      Best to go with actual cities, but most of those are gone or will cost you.

      $100K for LAHotels is overpriced. IMO, LosAngelesHotels is far better.

    @Elliot

    I’ve always enjoyed these type of articles.

    The moment domainers are asked what they registered, they start listing their attic goods.

    Another good article is when you request to buy domains. I’m sure the next “request to buy article” will produce over 150 comments.

    In any case, you still run a quality domain blog. Hope your family and you are safe out in NYC. Happy Thanksgiving.

    A cold and rainy night, time to web surf.

    Just picked up in the last couple of days…

    EarSpikes.com
    StarterStuds.com
    SpaceGlasses.com
    GIGlasses.com

    I’ll flip them somewhere.

    Bet you’re relieved to finally be settled. All the best for the new home Elliot and keep blogging!

      oops, you are correct. I mistyped the language. Mixed them up with some Hebrew ones.
      Hebrew / Greek, its all wiggly lines to me. Killer names in .com are available in all languages for a song.
      While most focus on latin names there is a very interesting opportunity in other languages, imo. More than 50% of internet users don’t speak English so why force them to surf in English???
