Afternic Sells SoulMate.com for $100k

9

Last week, Afternic sold over $565,000 worth of publicly reported domain names. This amount only includes .com domain sales over $2,000 and .net/.org domain sales at $1,000 and higher.

Leading the way last week was the sale of SoulMate.com for $100,000. The previous registrant of the domain name was a company called Ultimate Choice Travel, and from the About Us page, it looks like a company called World Dating Partners is behind SoulMate.com. IMO, SoulMate.com is a great brand name.

  1. The soulmate.com sale was good, but a bit much for two words that people aren’t searching for when seeking out a dating site…I’ve done some research on this subject for a site we’re going to be launching in 2012 (d8.tv).

    The dating sites of tomorrow will need to cater to mobile users who will want to utilize video-mobile services and who will also want an ultra-short URL to access (our research discovered the best dating url’s of the future to be, in this order: d.tv, d.co, then d8.tv). The dating-niche can be incredibly profitable if approached with the right mind-set.

      It’s an instantly recognizable brand. It just sounds like a dating site.

      D8.tv would sound like D Eight to most people… and it’s a .tv. I won’t go there on this post because it will turn into another silly referendum on .tv and this post has absolutely nothing to do with .tv.

      I think you should start a blog about .tv since you’ve done a lot of research.

  2. Elliot……lol

    D8.tv doesn’t make any sense to me.
    It is as good as d17.tv, d9.tv, d11.tv, d177254.tv

    It has no meaning to general public unless you spend few millions marketing it.

    SoutMate.com is a nice sale, SoulMates.com is even better name imo.

  3. @Elliot,

    I wasn’t pushing .tv in my post.

    “d8” is almost universally recognized as meaning “date” to anyone under 25-years of age. Yes, you’re right, it does cost money to market your brand, your site, and/or your company…you’re a wise man to recognize this fact. 🙂

    I’ll leave the blogging to the pro’s like yourself. 😉
