Domain Flips (4181.com, Dealer.net) and Flops (HandJob.com, Routes.com)

Mar 19 2017

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

Flips

4181.com sold for 29,999 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 1,201 USD on 2012-05-15 at NameJet. I don’t know if the market for numerics is still off its peak, but man, this is still a great 21x return after commission in a five year hold.

3510.com sold for 20,811 USD recently at NameJet, vs 3,600 USD on 2013-11-03 at Afternic. A 5x return after commission, in under four years.

PRRH.com sold for 1,366 USD recently at NameJet, vs 111 USD on 2013-05-09 at GoDaddy. I know the LLLL.com market is off its peak, but this is still a 10x return after commission.

Dealer.net sold for 9,600 USD recently at NameKart, vs 3,400 USD on 2017-01-23 at NamesCon. Nice quick flip on a name bought at NamesCon earlier this year.

PledgeOfAllegiance.com sold for 9,550 USD recently at Flippa, vs 4,494 USD on 2017-01-13 at GoDaddy. Another quick flip…..about a two month hold.

Flops

HandJob.com sold for 40,000 USD recently at NameJet, vs 90,000 USD on 2007-01-18 at Moniker. A huge $50k loss without considering any interim income they earned from the prior site. A rare flop for the hot career / job space, which has been hot. 🙂

Routes.com sold for 25,000 USD recently at Flippa, vs 50,000 USD on 2013-12-04 at Sedo.

DailyCart.com sold for 330 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 2,188 USD on 2011-04-06 at GoDaddy. Based on the screenshot below from 2012, it looks like they tried a daily deals-type site, but things must not have panned out.

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.
