Listed below are updates on the top ten domain sales from a year ago, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. Career.net sold for $85,000
A simple “J” is live on the lander, and the owner per Whois has a Jobs.bg email address, so I’m guessing a related site is in the queue. “Jobs.bg is a career media. Over 70 000 companies in Bulgaria from all business sectors use Jobs.bg to publish more than 30 000 job positions monthly.”
2. Coffee.net sold for $55,000
This coffee company is based on Doha, Qatar and it’s interesting to see they changed their primary domain from eCoffee.com to Coffee.net. “eCoffee is a team of experts dedicated to help you brew outstanding coffee for both domestic and commercial use.” The site has an Alexa rank near 4.5 million.
3. Sparstrumpf.de sold for $53,312
This translates to “savings” from German, and it appears to be an additional site for the company at Union-Investment.de. Per Google Translate, “More than one million fund savings plans from Union Investment already help to ensure that modern savers meet millions of times their wishes. And you?” The site has an Alexa rank near 2.1 million.
4. TaiwanTrade.com sold for $51,765
This is the traffic leader for the week with its Alexa rank near 35,000. It appears to be an Alibaba-type platform, “Founded in 2002, Taiwantrade is the official B2B site of Taiwan. Taiwantrade is organized by Taiwan’s Bureau of Foreign Trade, Ministry of Economic Affairs and operated by the Taiwan External Trade Development Council, the nation’s largest nonprofit trade promotion organization. With a global network of 60 offices, Taiwantrade is dedicated to helping worldwide businesses find quality suppliers and products from Taiwan.“

No site resolves, and it’s owned by an individual in China.

Our main clients are tour operators, travel wholesalers, OTAs, bedbanks and travel agencies.”
