Domain Spotlight:

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

Flips sold for 2,500 USD on 2018-03-16 at BuyDomains, vs 129 USD on 2016-03-24 at NameJet. Nearly 20x return for BuyDomains, which seems to be a pretty common occurrence for them. Buyer appears to be Eric Rafia of, adding a related domain. sold for 50,000 USD on 2018-03-18 at Sedo, vs 32,000 USD on 2012-11-14 at MediaOptions / Uniregistry. A $10k profit after commission. It doesn’t look like it has transferred yet, so buyer is TBD. I was fortunate to have a profitable experience with the singular,, a few years back. sold for 15,500 USD on 2018-03-22 at Sedo, vs 9,999 USD on 2017-09-20 at Sedo. continue to do well. sold for 30,767 USD on 2018-03-22 at Sedo, vs 21,000 USD on 2017-02-05 at BQDN. A solid increase in value over the year…around 50%…but after commission, only about $5k of it flows to the seller. However, that’s still a nearly 25% gain in a year. sold for 11,550 USD on 2018-03-11 at GritBrokerage, vs 10,000 USD on 2015-07-31 at Sedo. A really thin profit, and if brokerage commissions were paid, it’s likely a loss. The domain is an upgrade for the buyer, from, with a screenshot below. “Highest Quality all Natural Sports Nutrition Supplements made specifically to support and increase Muscle Endurance”


Flops sold for 1,500 USD on 2018-03-16 at NameJet, vs 1,450 USD on 2017-12-19 at Flippa. This name can’t seem to find a long term home. It sold for $221 in early 2016, then $240 in late 2016, then the two transactions in the four figures. The most recent sale is loss of a couple hundred dollars after commission. sold for 2,050 USD on 2018-03-21 at GoDaddy, vs 8,750 USD on 2016-06-03 at Uniregistry. It’s never a good idea to pay retail prices with Frank Schilling and then try to sell the name later, or worse yet, let it drop. sold for 1,176 USD on 2018-03-15 at GoDaddy, vs 2,500 USD on 2016-12-22 at Sedo. A flop for the seller, but I’m pretty sure the buyer won’t be selling it at a loss in the future. sold for 810 USD on 2018-03-16 at GoDaddy, vs 3,700 USD on 2012-02-06 at NameJet. Product domains were great back in the day, but their popularity has faded, at least with domainers. This is a loss over 80% after commissions.

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.
