Listed below are updates on the top ten domain sales from a year ago, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. Convenience.org sold for $55,000
The nonprofit National Association of Convenience Stores picked up this domain, and they moved everything from NACSonline.com over to Convenience.org. “NACS advances the role of convenience stores as positive economic, social and philanthropic contributors to the communities they serve.” “NACS has 2,100 retailer and 1,750 supplier members from more than 50 countries.” The site has an Alexa rank near 500,000.
2. LXW.com sold for $47,011
3. 5530.com sold for $31,000
Neither of the two domains above resolve.
4. Shays.com sold for $28,750
The site says they’re a commercial real estate firm based in Denver. I would assume the company was named after an individual with last name Shay or Shays, but oddly no individuals within the company are mentioned in the site, at least that I can find.
5. WWW2.com sold for $22,800
No site resolves.
6. DIK.com sold for $22,066
The domain is parked, and if you click on the ‘Inquire’ link, it redirects to an Epik page that shows a BIN of $250,000.
7. Endera.com sold for $19,000
Based in Virginia, “Endera provides the industry’s first automated, continuous insider risk assessment platform, scanning thousands of federal, state and county data sources to proactively alert organizations to potential high-risk individuals and populations within their workforce.” The site has Alexa rank near 4.5 million.
8. LiveXXX.com sold for $15,000
With the XXX in the domain, you can guess the content…..adult videos and chatrooms. It’s the traffic leader for the week, with its Alexa rank near 350,000.
9. Bummeln.de sold for $10,865
Per Google Translate of this German language site, it’s an “an independent product search engine for the German-speaking Internet. With our product search system, more than 1,550 online shops can be browsed simultaneously. Annoying searches in various online shops has long been a thing of the past.” The site has an Alexa rank near 3 million.
10. Automation.ai sold for $10,000
The domain redirects to AutomationAI.ca.com, with either domain confusing in my simple little mind. It appears the domain was picked up by CA Technologies, which is a publicly traded firm with a market cap around $14 billion. They describe their new site as, “a collection of original content related to Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in the IT discipline. “
