Domaining has evolved as an altogether new way of making money with digital assets, it is estimated that the domain buy/sell industry has a potential of around $250-500 million annually. People do buy interesting domain names, just to sell it at a later stage to big investors/corporates who wish to own that domain, either to start a business by the same name or sell it to the next client.
The good thing about domaining is that you are ready to buy/sell with just the basic understanding of buying trends of customers, availability of interesting names or names which people would like to buy.
When I say ‘interesting’ it comes in by default that the domain name is either easy to remember/type or has a name which people cannot resist buying or has a name very similar to a big brand.
Some of the domain names sold at an incredibly high price are:
- Dating.com — $1,750,000
- Power.com — $1,261,000
- Cameras.com — $1,500,000
- eBet.com — $1,350,000
- Russia.com — $1,500,000
- DataRecovery.com — $1,659,000
- MM.com — $1,200,000
- Auction.com — $1,700,000
- Ticket.com — $1,525,000
You get the drill 🙂
