I have been fielding more inquiries than usual lately (generally the top 10-15 domain names get the majority of inquiries), and I have been doing a decent amount of selling. I am also actively buying to replace domain names I sell. Most of my purchases lately have been at NameJet or private acquisitions directly from the owners.
As I do periodically, I thought I would share five of my company’s recent acquisitions. These domain names have all been bought on the aftermarket in the last week or two.
Recent domain name purchases:
I invite you to share some of your very recent (last few weeks I guess) domain name acquisitions if you would like. By acquisition, I mean purchased on the aftermarket either on a marketplace like Sedo, via auction like NameJet, through a broker like Media Options, or in a private transaction. It’s always interesting to see the quality of domain names readers are buying as well as seeing what types of domain names are trading hands on a regular basis.
I will likely do a post discussing recent hand registrations, so please save those for the next time.
Love Embrace.com , great name.
2 recent pick ups, going with the popular Chinese LLLL.com
You got some great names….saw embrace.com on namejet but was outbid.
Hopefully these are good investments.
PBDY.com seems pretty good I would think.
When I saw Pbdy.com the name Peabody jumps to mind. Peabody is London’s oldest housing association with over 27,000 properties in their portfolio. They seem to have a few domains in their possession so maybe this could be of future interest to them.
Cheers guys …yes Sean, exactly what I thought regarding pbdy as peabody apartments in the UK.
Of your recent acquisitions, I like VisitSantoDomingo.com the most and not just because I have a few domains with the “Santo Domingo” keyword.
No recent acquisitions to report as my last sale over $500 was August 2014…
Leonard, i always like your honesty….
NaplesBeachFlorida.com Just bought recently.
I don’t have any aftermarket buys but if it’s okay may I comment some recent hand registered buys? Living in Europe I tend to focus on European places and travel related names.
Embrace.com and Conceal.com are great names.

Among My Recent acquisitions:

A couple of my recent acquisitions have been
No dot coms this month but I acquired some new gTLDs which I intend to hang on to for many years:
Those are great names. What is your development plan with Embrace.com?
I am selling PubsVegas.com at bargain price…in case you are interested 😉
My plans are private for now.
Unfortunately, your domain name is not of interest to me.
Embrace.com will definitely be stellar if properly developed. Best wishes for that one Elliot.
Just three recent names bought:
Embrace is a home run imo.
HomeInspector.com is my most recent acquisition.
I acquired Tadle.com two days ago.
It received an offer last night, so I sent it to auction (Go Daddy) today.
In case the eventual buyer doesn’t want the price made public, I won’t reveal the price offered (because I can’t edit this, but until next Sunday you can see for yourself).
This will probably be my fastest sale ever, that is, if it goes through.
You just never know in this biz.
Similar to your Ultrasonographer.com, I purchased UltrasoundImaging.com two weeks ago via GoDaddy auction for $1200 after the two higher bidders failed to pay $1300 and $1275.
UltrasoundImaging.com previously sold for $2,400 on 01/01/2007
It seems we have the same taste – I am the owner of Embracings.com 🙂
And among my recent acquisitions:
RGVB.com and sorrow.info
I don’t think “embracings” is a real word.
According to Dictionary.com:
verb (used without object) embracing = to join in an embrace.
And according to Vocabulary.com:
(NOUN) Embracing – the act of clasping another person in the arms (as in greeting or affection).
“S” is for plural…
How would you use “embracings” in a sentence? I know “embracing” is a word, but I have never heard of embracings.
Well, Mark Twain used this word successfully:
“But when the final great note died out and the song was done, they all flung themselves in a body at the singer, stark mad with love of him and love of France and pride in her great deeds and old renown, and smothered him with their embracings; but Joan was there first, hugged close to his breast, and covering his face with idolatrous kisses.” (Mark Twain Personal Recollections of Joan of Arc Vol 1)
And more examples:
In A Book Title: “Love Communings: Soul Embracings with the Spirit of the Unborn Child” by Ann Adams
“…knowledge of water and of rock, and of the one hundred combinations which rock and watercan assume—for these two things, rock and water, taken in the abstract, fail as completely to convey any idea of their fierce embracings in the throes of a rapid as the fire burning quietly in a drawing-room fireplace fails to convey the idea of a house wrapped and sheeted in flames.” (The Great Lone Land by William Francis Butler)
“Undoubtedly in the Abraham and Isaac characterization counts for more, but we have the journey to the Mount, the preparations for the sacrifice, the binding of the boy’s eyes, the repeatedly upraised sword, the farewell embracings, the very dramatic coming of the Angel, and the joyful sacrifice of the sheep when the child is released.” (Dramatic Technique by George Pierce Baker)
“They stood still till the boat had cleared; and then, with tears and embracings, the husband and wife, with their wondering child in their arms, knelt down and lifted up their hearts to God!” (Uncle Tom’s Cabin by Harriet Beecher Stowe)
And to make you laugh my own example:
Her embracings were not the reason to stop him from domaining 😉
Good luck with the name!
