What Domain Names Have You Sold Recently?

55

I wrote a popular post a couple of days ago asking people what recent domain acquisitions they made, and that post has received 71 comments as of this afternoon. Steve Morsa followed it up with an email suggesting another post asking readers to post some of their recent sales.

At first, I was a bit hesitant to post this because I keep just about all of my sales and sales prices private. However, I don’t mind revealing some of my recent sales, albeit without sales prices.

  • Danvers.com
  • GolfBooks.com
  • BoroughPark.com
  • ParkSlope.com
  • GunCollection.com
  • RittenhouseSquare.com
  • UniqueInk.com
  • iCookbook.com
  • DeepWrinkleTreatments.com
  • ChristmasLawnOrnaments.com

If you’d like to post some of your recent sales with or without sales prices, feel free to do so. It’s an interesting look at what the aftermarket is doing.

    Nice domains.

    Did you sell them direct or through a domain brokerage service?

    Can you step us through the sales process (locating a buyer) for one or two of the names you listed above?

    I’m not asking for the specific details, more so the general approach. I would like to hear about UniqueInk.com since it was a developed site.

    @ JS

    UniqueInk.com was a sale to a friend who is going to use it for a blog for his wife who is into tattoos.

    The others were private sales, with all but two small sales being sold by me directly. One was sold by a blog reader who had sold similar names and the second (GunCollection.com) was sold at DomainFest.

    Good luck getting to 70+ comments on this one :) I don’t spend much time selling as I am mostly buying to hold/develop… but I did sell FreeDesktopWallpaper.org via Sedo for mid $xxx and OnlineBackupSoftware.info via Bido this month.

    Speaking of Bido, I was doing very good volume (for me) at the end of last year but for the extensions and keywords I deal in, Bido’s activity has really dried up. I had about 2-3 to 1 sell through rate prior to the “latest” Bido release in mid December. Since then I’m something like 0 for 15 or something crazy.

    About 50% of the domains I sold (see above) were sold in my marketplace (http://www.MediaOptions.com). The other 50% were through contacting End Users.

    There are a few exceptions which I sold either on Sedo or Godaddy and a couple with Moniker Auctions.

    I forgot to mention: VisitPalermo.com Sold at Moniker Live Auction.

    February 18th, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    Randomo

    @ steve – Glad to hear of your plans for KeepKosher.com. I really liked that name, was reluctant to let it go … but a guy’s gotta pay his renewal fees somehow! :)

    February 18th, 2010 at 5:16 pm

    Mike

    Where could one sell an entire portfolio of nearly 600 names – mostly dot-com domain names? Aside from BuyDomains.com… Are there brokerages that deal in that sort of bulk purchase?

    February 18th, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    Mark

    icookbook.com? i wouldn’t take that pos if u offered it to me for free

    February 19th, 2010 at 4:59 am

      Elliot

      @ Mark

      Good thing I didn’t ask your opinion on its value. BTW, I turned down one other profitable offer before I sold it for just under $1k.

      February 19th, 2010 at 7:37 am

    Calvin

    I’ve sold hundreds this year, but one that comes to mind is BankReconciliationSoftware(com), mainly because it was free, is a very long domain (imho) and it found the perfect end user for a price that made me very, very happy. It sold less than a week after acquisition!

    February 20th, 2010 at 10:29 am

    Edward Emery

    I need to sell a few domains, as a newbie what would be my best avenue…can someone help me out. I have small list for anyone to look at if needed.

    Thanks,

    Edward Emery

    February 25th, 2010 at 6:42 pm

    Edward Emery

    Hi Elliot,

    Maybe I should have directed my question to you. As a newbie what would be the best way to sell some domains. As I would like to raise a little $$$ to purchase some more domains.

    Edward

    P.S. Thanks for helping me on the EndBeginning.com /.net there gone got the big refund.

    February 25th, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    Elliot

    @ Edward

    I don’t mean to be rude or sarcastic with this reply, but I wouldn’t know how to sell domain names like that. I guess you should search for companies that do what you think should be done with the names and ask them.

    February 25th, 2010 at 7:29 pm

    Edward Emery

    Elliot,

    Sorry for the misunderstanding I don’t own those names anymore there gone (endbeginning). But I would like to sell a few like.

    PetsKennel.com

    VintagePoloShirts.com

    NationDigest.com

    CancerAntioxidant.com

    YogaBras.com

    CurrentReleases.net

    If the above domains are junk it’s ok to let me know.

    P.S. By day I am an Insurance salesman with a book of business of 2500 clients. So believe me if I can sell face to face or have people scream at me because of claims not covered or a screwed up bill etc. for the last 8 years. Nothing on a blog could really hurt my feelings. So it’s ok to tell like it is.

    Thanks just a newbie…

    Ed

    February 25th, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Giles

    I bought one of the domains listed in this thread (freedesktopwallpaper.org), not sure I’d want the price published though(I believe it’s against the terms in Sedo)…as it’s searchable on Google hmm
