Gotta love this industry. Mr. Calvin was discussed previously for his profitable flip of sold for 3,750 USD recently at NameJet, vs 1,500 USD on 2015-04-22 at NameJet.

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.

  1. This article is a great example of how quickly domains can fluctuate. What is hot today may not be as hot tomorrow and vice versa.

    1. It’s true, but you still have the choice to hold until the price is right for you. In time the value tends to grow. Not if you overpaid for a domain (that will be slower)
