Recent Domain Sales That Have Been Developed (pics): SmartPortal.com, NewDay.org & more

Mar 09 2019

The screenshots below are examples of buyers of domains from the past few months that have either developed their sites, or purchased an upgrade domain and have redirected their acquisition to an existing website.

SmartPortal.com sold for $6,250 at Sedo.  The name sold to a Swedish company that focuses on packaging technology and marketing solutions for the restaurant industry.

UnicornWealth.com sold for $3,995 at Sedo.  This looks to be an affiliate site trying to generate clicks for some e-books with what I’m guessing is spun content from other news sources.  It is amazing how many sites there are like this, and it must be lucrative if these guys are buying domains for this price to put them up.

NewDay.org reportedly sold for $6,200 via a Private channel.  This domain now redirects to azezana.net which works to empower women in Afghanistan.  They sell handcrafted Afghan products sourced entirely from materials produced in Afghanistan.  I don’t see any mention of NewDay on their website, but maybe they are rebranding in the future.  New day is a nice .org type of name.

ZeroPlastic.com sold for $2,800 at Sedo.  This name redirects to the non-profit of the same name at ZeroPlastic.org.  This is an Australian company that was “created to help businesses become free of single-use plastic and educate consumers so they can choose businesses that are committed to a sustainable environment” – a noble endeavor in my opinion.

Amercia.com sold for $14,000 on Sedo.  This one is strange to me as I have never seen it before.  Visits to the domain redirect to the Wikipedia page for Mercia – a kingdom in the middle ages that would later become England.  Why would someone pay $14K to redirect here?  I haven’t the slightest clue.  So this isn’t really a domain that has been developed, but it is a head scratcher.

      Thanks for the comment. Portal names used to be much bigger. I don’t think they have the same draw anymore. SmartPortal.com would definitely be one of the better ones to have.

    America.com must be just pointing it “anywhere” but actually hoping for a flip. 14k for that was a good deal imo.

      $14K for America.com would definitely have been a steal, but this name is Amercia.com. Looks like that is nothing more than a Romney flub from the past.
