Listed below are updates on the top 10 domain sales from a year ago, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. Versed.com sold for $35,000
The site/service describes itself as, “Versed solves the information overload problem with expert curated content and on-demand quizzes that bring you up to speed on the forces and trends shaping business today” and “We curate articles, videos and other content from the most reputable sources into concise tracks. Test your knowledge on key topics by taking our quizzes at any time.” It’s an additional domain for the company KnowledgeLaunch.com, based in Knoxville, Tennessee. The site does not have an Alexa rank.
2. EIC.com sold for $30,000
3. ERL.com sold for $25,581
Both domains above are under privacy protection and have a for-sale lander.
4. Innovation.group sold for $22,500
This was a change in domain from Innovation-Group.com, and the site has an Alexa rank of 1.3 million. “Innovation Group manages critical incidents in the car and home on behalf of the world’s leading insurers, brokers and fleet managers, together with warranty and service plan provision for many automotive manufacturers globally.”
5. UberDriverDiaries.com sold for $16,667
This is a strange one to me, as I’m not familiar with the phrase/terms. It’s under privacy protection and redirects to Ridester.com, which describes their mission as “share valuable resources with all rideshare users and drivers. From Uber promo codes, to Lyft driver requirements, to debates about Uber vs. Lyft, Ridester is your go-to place for all things related to rideshare apps.” “Ridester.com is not a direct employee or extension of the companies we cover. If users click our links throughout the site and make a purchase/conversion, we may be compensated accordingly for these referrals.”
6. Arto.com sold for $12,480
The domain was an upgrade from ArtoBrick.com, a company described as “Having a Good Time Handcrafting Tile & Brick with 80 Souls in Los Angeles since 1966.“ The site has an Alexa rank near 1.5 million.
7. NewEdu.com sold for $11,000
This domain redirects to ACGEdu.com, which is the home of a New Zealand based education company. “ACG Education has preschools, schools, university pathway programmes and vocational colleges at 50 campuses across three countries. With more than 17,000 students of every age and level, our 1,000 employees are dedicated to helping them unleash their potential and build brighter futures.”
8. eGroup.ch sold for $10,400
The domain redirects to ePension.com, which is the home of a Luxembourg based company, described as “an innovative and transparent pension fund that operates across Europe”.
9. ThinkUp.com sold for $10,100
A coupon site is live, with an Alexa rank near 300,000, even though they appear to have launched just a month ago. “Access over 40,000 retailers and 500,000 coupons in one place”. It appears this domain previously hosted a social media analytics company, which shut down in 2016. That’s a pretty quick domain sale and reincarnation to a new company.
10. NiceFilm.com sold for $10,000
A Chinese language film review site is what appears to be live. I’ve never really understood the use of English language domains for foreign language sites, but that doesn’t appear to be holding back this site, as it’s the traffic leader for the week with its Alexa rank near 95,000.
