Find Your Own Path to Success

One of the neat things about domain investing is the number of ways people can make money from their domain investments. I have always been strictly a .com investor, and that has worked for me. There are plenty of other people who are creating their own investment strategies, and they are finding their own success.

I want to highlight two examples of people I do not know personally, but I have seen them share stories of successful domain investing.

I follow Jason Sheppard on Twitter, and I appreciate his willingness to share details about his domain name sales. This morning, he shared that he sold Basic.vc $4,999 via DAN.com. This is a domain name that he registered just a handful of months ago, and he reported that he is now in the money on his .VC domain name investments:

👁👄👁.FM: Emoji Domain Name Makes Waves

A viral Emoji campaign along with an Emoji .FM domain name caught the attention of many people on Twitter and helped to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for a number of racial justice non-profits, Business Insider reported:

“For more than 24 hours, tech workers in Silicon Valley and high-profile venture capitalists were animated over what appeared to be a secretive app and a series of a cryptic tweets. Whatever it was appeared to be the next big thing: Investors and partners at venture firms like Draper and Gelt VC were talking about exclusive invites, techies at companies like Facebook were posting screenshots to Twitter, and prominent entrepreneurs were pleading with their followers for access and more info about the emoji combination 👁👄👁. The only response: ‘It is what it is.'”

Another $100,000 AUD domain name sale was reported over the weekend. Erhan Karabardak, Director at Cooper Mills Lawyers, reported that LifeInsurance.com.au was sold for $100,000 AUD. His firm was involved in the deal. At today’s exchange rate, that is approximately $68,349 USD:

The sale was reported by Domain Name Junction, a publication that focuses on the Australian domain name marketplace. LifeInsurance.com.au was reportedly acquired by the company that operates the Money.com.au business.

In May, it was reported that the Sleep.com.au domain name was also sold for $100,000 AUD. This sale currently ranks #34 on the DNJournal year to date sales report. Once Ron Jackson archives the LifeInsurance.com.au sale, it will rank in the top 10 ccTLD domain name sales of the year. The sale of LifeInsurance.com.au will also rank near the top 10 .com.au domain name sales of all time, as recorded by NameBio.

Earlier this morning, one of the largest .io domain name sales of all time was reported on Twitter. According to the tweet from Bar Franek of Page Clinic, Jackpot.io was sold for $48,500 via DAN. The seller reported the deal was already paid in full in a BTC deal:

Report: Sleep.com.au Sold for $100,000

According to a report on Domainer.com.au, the Sleep.com.au domain name was sold for $100,000 AUD on the Drop.com.au domain name auction platform. (Update: It would appear that the sale is in AUD rather than USD. Assuming it is AUD, that would be approximately $66,559 in USD.):

Park.io Founder on Failory Podcast

For the past few years, .IO domain names have become very popular. A quick glance at NameBio shows the substantial value that exists for some .IO domain names. In addition, a look at TechCrunch, CrunchBase, The Verge, or pretty much any other tech publication shows the extensive usage of .IO domain names at various startups across many fields. I readily admit I have never owned a .IO domain name (and very few ccTLDs in general), but there is a big market for them and Park.io is one of the companies that leads the pack when it comes to the sale of .IO domain names.

Adam Yamada-Hanff emailed me about a podcast readers might find interesting. Failory interviewed Mike Carson, Founder of Park.io, and the interview was released this week as a part of the Failory Podcast series.
