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

Flips sold for 5,700 USD recently at Sedo, vs 1,064 USD on 2015-11-24 at Sedo. Excellent quick flip; nearly 5x after commission in a couple weeks. It’s very difficult to repeat this on a consistent basis. sold for 8,000 USD recently at NameJet, vs 3,103 USD on 2015-09-29 at Sedo. Nice return in just over two months. sold for 1,915 USD recently at 4.CN, vs 452 USD on 2015-06-01 at NameJet. Approximately 3.6x after commissions in six months. sold for 4,800 USD recently at Sedo, vs 310 USD on 2010-12-02 at NameJet. A longer hold, but 13x after commissions in 5 years isn’t too bad. sold for 1,310 USD recently on NameJet, vs 600 USD on 2015-08-06 at Flippa. sold for 1,309 USD recently at NameJet, vs 600 USD on 2015-08-06 at Flippa. I picked up these two earlier this year, and discussed in my Q3 acquisitions post that my intention was a quick flip. Not quite a double after commissions in four months. sold for 1,501 USD recently at Flippa, vs 602 USD on 2015-10-28 at NameJet. Although this is a common typo, the coffee is from Colombia, with two o’s. sold for 25,000 USD recently at IndusDomains, vs 5,300 USD on 2014-09-04 at SnapNames. An upgrade from, and a screenshot is below. The company raised some seed funding earlier this year, so this a real operation. “FLIO takes the stress out of flying.

Flops sold for 343 USD recently at NameJet, vs 3,500 USD on 2012-02-22 at Afternic. First class flop, financially speaking. sold for 1,644 USD recently at NameJet, vs 6,000 USD on 2004-10-06 at Afternic. sold for 1,600 USD recently at NameJet, vs 1,819 USD on 2014-12-08 at NameJet. Check that spelling; typos aren’t what they used to be. sold for 160 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 3,788 USD on 2013-10-13 at Afternic. This domain clearly wasn’t the owner’s path to riches.
