It is interesting to follow up after domain sales to see what buyers did (if anything) with the domain after purchasing. I’d guess that at least half the time the domain still points to wherever it pointed the day that it sold. I know that it takes a long time to build a business and a website, but I’m talking many months or even a year later. Many buys at the $2k to $5k level seem to be impulse buys which is why it is so important to list your names at Afternic when possible to get into the GoDaddy registration path.
It is more fun to find businesses that were built on a domain after a sale. Screamium.com is a name that I sold last year via BrandBucket that is being used in exactly the way that I thought it should be – something Halloween oriented. I bought the name via GoDaddy closeouts back in 2016 and it ended up taking 5 years to sell, but I knew it would sell eventually. Take a look at the site – I’ve never seen $10,000 giant Halloween figures before. I wonder how many of them they actually sell.
