Several years ago, a few “Super” domain names sold for somewhat substantial sums of money. The domain names were acquired by SuperMedia LLC / Idearc Media LLC. I believe they were related to the company’s Super Pages phone directory.
I was looking through a list of pending delete domain names, and it looks like some of these domain names are dropping. Because of the pending delete status, I believe these will be auctioned should people backorder them via platforms such as DropCatch.com, NameJet, and SnapNames.
Here are some of the Super domain names in pending delete status. Next to the name is the sale price as recorded by NameBio:
At the time, I recall that the company owned other “Super” domain names. For instance, NameBio also shows the company bought SuperPlumbing.com for $10,000 at around the same time as the other names. That domain name is owned by a different entity. Based on some Whois history searches at DomainTools, it looks like that domain name has been owned by a third party for at least a few years.
I am not sure what came of the plan for those domain names, but it looks like the company changed its plans. It will be interesting to see how these domain names perform at auction. People occasionally bid higher because of a prior sale, but in my opinion, the value of these domain names was greatest to the SuperPages operators, and they don’t seem to want these domain names any longer.
