Domain Flips (, and Flops (,

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

Flips sold for 1,945 USD recently at NameJet, vs  1,400 USD on 2015-10-21 at Flippa. This wasn’t a home run, but an 18% return after commission in a year is great in most investment circles. sold for 1,728 USD recently at NameJet, vs 291 USD on 2008-09-05 at NameJet. This one was a 400% return over an eight year hold. sold for 2,301 USD recently at NameJet, vs 151 USD on 2014-08-31 at GoDaddy. Both those returns above pale in comparison to what has happened with some of the numerics…..this one was a nearly 1200% return in a roughly two year timeframe. sold for 1,620 USD recently at NameJet, vs 550 USD on 2015-01-04 at Flippa. This was my name, which I mentioned I bought previously. I had the name up for auction at NameJet last year with a $1,500 reserve, and bidding only got up to $1,300. This time I had a $1,250 reserve, and bidding got up to the final price of $1,620.

Flops sold for 324 USD recently at DropCatch, vs 12,000 USD on 2014-09-03 at Private. This domain used to forward to the hyphenated, which was an off-color comic strip. “The comic book tells the story of a homeless man, Jay Ess, that acquires super powers one night while sleeping in a dumpster.” sold for 303 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 5,680 USD on 2015-10-19 at Sedo. It appears this domain was previously forwarded to, but that site doesn’t have anything in its history at sold for 1,276 USD recently at Sedo, vs 2,550 USD on 2011-08-09 at Sedo. sold for 500 USD recently at Flippa, vs 1,001 USD on 2016-09-15 at Flippa. This domain flop aligns with Hillary’s election performance.

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.
