Domain Flips (VRassistant.com, Nerd.org) and Flops (EnergyOne.com, HealthDude.com)

Dec 11 2016

Before the domains, a quick picture from this weekend’s snowshoeing trip is below. Yesterday’s 10 mile snowshoe into the hut was uneventful enough, but this morning’s whiteout conditions, and then breaking trail in 12-18 inches of fresh powder made it a beast of a hike out.

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

Flips

VRassistant.com sold for 1,700 USD recently at Flippa, vs 898 USD on 2016-11-19 at GoDaddy. Nice return in only a month. I know what a virtual assistant is, but I’m not familiar with a virtual reality assistant.

Lampara.es sold for 37,989 USD recently at Sedo, vs 1,560 USD on 2012-09-26 at Sedo. Excellent 20x return after commission. “Lamp” in Spanish. The domain currently forwards to an online retailer at MueblesBoom.com, but that’s not new….it has been doing that for over a year.

Nerd.org sold for 8,999 USD recently at Flippa, vs 1,744 USD on 2016-10-27 at Sedo. I don’t often see .org in these profitable flips. If it closes, it will be a 4x after commission in only two months.

KN4.com sold for 500 USD recently at NameJet, vs 260 USD on 2008-09-12 at Sedo. This was my recent sale, although I bought it in 2013 for less than the price listed in 2008. I’ve included this one only to reiterate the disclaimer that I include at the bottom of this weekly post — that there are sometimes transactions  in between those listed publicly at NameBio.

Flops

EnergyOne.com sold for 2,940 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 6,000 USD on 2011-04-16 at Sedo. This was a fully developed site as recently as May 2016, describing themselves as, “EnergyOne is a project development, project management, and facility operations company specializing in the areas of renewable energy, biofuels, biomass, gasification, and carbon credits.”

LPG.net sold for 2,350 USD recently at Sedo, vs 10,000 USD on 2011-01-15 at Sedo.

HealthDude.com sold for 383 USD recently at GoDaddy, vs 2,288 USD on 2014-01-26 at Afternic. This is another example of a site where the business plan must not have worked out….a March 2016 screenshot is below.

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.
