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.
WealthCare.com sold for $30,000 at Sedo – a very nice name and a very nice price. The name was purchased by a company named Alegeus (headquartered in Boston) and currently redirects to www.alegeus.com. The company focuses on benefit management (such as FSA’s, HSA’s and HRA’s) for other employers. If I had to guess, the name won’t be redirecting to the Alegeus homepage for long. Their administration admin currently resides at wealthcareadmin.com, and they have other wealth care related domains.
Functionally.com sold for $7,910 at Sedo. Functionally is a San Francisco company that develops software and solutions to help companies “master the complexity of scale with a people alignment platform to achieve true visibility and resource allocation“.
HotelWhiskey.com sold for $3,195 via SnapNames. This is an upgrade name for an actual hotel called Hotel Whiskey in a town that I have never heard of called Pass Christian on the coast of Mississippi. Their previous domain was hotelwhiskey.biz. It looks like a nice quaint place with good ratings. They need to 301 redirect the .biz though. That is still the top result for the hotel when searching Google.
NetworkDynamics.com sold for $3,297 at Namejet. I wonder if this is a case of an actual company bidding on the name at Namejet and beating out other domain investors to snag the name at a really nice price. If so, it makes you wonder how far they would have been willing to bid the name up. I guess an investor could have purchased the name on Namejet and quickly sold it, but that would be one quick turnaround. The company that ended up with the name is a hosting provider in Australia, and the domain currently redirects to their main site at networkdynamics.com.au.
Sybel.com sold for $2,500 on Sedo. The domain currently redirects to sybel.co. It is difficult to tell for sure, but it looks like Sybel might be a French version of Audible (there is a French version of Audible at audible.fr but still…). Their website could really use some work, but I guess it’s really just a pointer to their mobile apps.
