Apr 19 2014

Geez, I still can’t believe Shane gave me the password to this blog……he’s sure in for some surprises….sucker!

This is another look at a few recent domain flips and flops, with recent data courtesy of and historical data from NameBio.


  • – Sold recently for $4,800 at GoDaddy, vs $3,800 last year. Forwards to, an opinionated political site run by an individual who has filed a lawsuit opposing Obamacare.
  • – Sold recently for $4,500 at Sedo, vs $1,800 last year at Afternic.
  • – Sold recently for $2,888 at GoDaddy, vs $1,000 in 2008 at Sedo.
  • – Sold recently for $15,250 at Domain Name Sales, vs only $742 last year at GoDaddy. 20x return before commissions. The domain forwards to the developed, and a screenshot is linked below. The owner likes their geo scrubs domains, including and, and the international and

  • – Sold recently for $3,000 at Domain Name Sales, vs only $122 last year at GoDaddy. 25x return before commissions. Egnyte, a company whose name doesn’t pass the radio test, acquired this alternate spelling. The company recently closed a $29.5 million round of financing…..this domain acquisition was a drop in the bucket.



  • – Sold recently for $2,500 at Sedo, vs $2,600 last year at GoDaddy. Factor in commissions, and you’ve got nearly a 20% loss. A placeholder site is live, but per, a similar site has been live for the past 5+ years.

Note: I didn’t do an exhaustive search of the ownership history of each domain. There are likely cases where there were multiple owners between the sales prices I list.

    I actually sold in early January but DNS didn’t release their data until recently. Nice investigative work!

    Great sale, Tony! Did you negotiate it yourself, or did you use a DNS broker? I’m sure you have since found some nice domains to reinvest in.

    Thanks, Aaron. The buyer contacted me via broker so we negotiated through the broker. I constantly reinvest but it’s more difficult than ever IMO to find the diamonds in the rough at a good price.
