Listed below are updates to the top 10 domain sales from a year ago this week, as ranked by DN Journal.
1. RussianGirls.com for $120,000
- Domain doesn’t resolve and is under privacy protection.
2. MBusiness.com for $45,000
- Picked up by $170+ billion market cap AT&T. I don’t see anything broadly marketed as “M business”, but I did find this PDF talking about “M Business Anywhere (TM) provides a platform for delivering Web based and applications to a wide variety of mobile devices rapidly and cost-effectively”
3. TYME.com for $40,000
- Pronouncable (though it doesn’t pass the radio test), TYME in this case stands for Take Your Money Anywhere. “TYME designs, builds and runs branchless banking solutions.” “The foundations of TYME were laid through a Deloitte Consulting project funded by MTN. In June 2012, the venture was spun out of Deloitte, and TYME was established as a stand-alone business.” Alexa rank near 4.6 million.
4. MKT.com for $35,000
- As discussed recently, this was picked by mobile payment company Square, and the domain forwards to the Square Market section of their site, “Shop online from great neighborhood businesses. Square Market offers you one-of-a-kind items from all over the place–all in one place. “
5. Mapa.com for $32,000
- A Domain Holdings for-sale lander is live. “All Offers Below $10,000 USD will be discarded.”
6. SportsPicks.com for $25,660
- Traffic leader for the week, with an Alexa rank near 4.5 million. Developed by domainer Steven Newman as you would expect, “Sportspicks.com is the web’s #1 resource for winning sports picks and sports betting information.”
7. Salumi.com for $25,000
- I learned something new today…..per Wikipedia, salumi “are Italian cured meat products and predominantly made from pork“. Developed by Creminelli Fine Meats.
8. StarShape.com for $23,000
- Only a placeholder is live, but according to their Facebook page, “We are an independent games development studio based in Guildford, UK. We develop innovative, fun games for mobile and tablet platforms.“
