The Apples.com domain name is up for auction at NameJet, and with just over one day remaining in the auction, bidding is at $28,100. As I recall, Apples.com was up for auction previously, but it didn’t meet its reserve price and failed to sell.
Despite the fact that the technology company called Apple is known throughout the world, I would imagine there are safe ways to use this domain name. Obviously, apples are one of the most popular fruits in the world, and someone could use Apples.com for their orchard or for an apple shipping company. Have a look at Oranges.com to see how a descriptive domain name like this can be used despite the fact that there is a well known brand using the singular version.
How much do you think Apples.com will sell for at auction? Vote in the poll below. As a disclaimer, I may bid on this auction.
Was in auction last year and went up to $89,999 but didn’t meet reserve. Owner had it listed for a while at $650,000.
Interesting to see if it gets close to last years price this time around.
The bidding stopped yesterday at $ 55,000. without reaching the reserve price.
I guess we will see it again in auction in a few months.
This point is for the newbies, occasional bidder and the corporate bidders.
Apples.com had 371 bidders listed this time.
Some of the people that write about domains coming up for auction, mention how many bidders are listed. If a domain keeps coming around and around without reaching the reserve price, it accumulates additional bidders each time. The vast majority of them are just sightseers. FYI.
