The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the last few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.
QUA.com sold for $459,000 via a private sale. If you thought that Chinese buyers only bought LLL.com domains for investment purposes and left them parked….think again. “Qua.com is a sub-brand of Qunar.com targeting international market. Qunar is the world’s most popular Chinese travel search site which aims at helping travelers to find travel products and information. Thousands of online travel sites will be compared when searching a flight and the best offer can be found out instantly.”
Amra.com sold for $127,500 at eNaming, and the domain is an upgrade from AMRA-Music.com. “AMRA is the first of its kind — a global digital music collection society, built on technology and trust.”
ATF.com sold for $75,000 via a private sale, and the owner is Daiyun Jie, X.D. Entertainment Co., Ltd. This is example number two this week of a Chinese acquisition and development of an LLL.com. A translation of the Chinese language site states in part that they are a new entertainment company formed this year, which is “working around the younger generation, to build part of their entertainment products“.
Historia.com sold for $60,000 at Sedo, and the owner is Miguel Martinez Velasco. You can see their placeholder below, and their Facebook page with nearly 80,000 like states, “We study and we present, in accordance with certain principles and methods, events and facts that belong to the past.” This domain was discussed as a profitable flip here.
