NFT.ai From 3 Figures to 6 Figures in Less Than a Year

Someone I trust shared a swath of private .ai domain name sales with me. Among them was the six figure sale of NFT.ai. The sale price is impressive, but the ROI was even more notable. I was told that NFT.ai was acquired in an expiry auction for $100 in August of 2020. It was reportedly resold earlier this month for $105,000. The domain name was bought via Namecheap. Paying $100 for a domain name and selling it for more than $100,000 less than a year later is an eye-watering flip.

Angel.com Sold for $2 Million via Sedo (Update)

Sedo Sr. Broker Dave Evanson just reported the sale of the Angel.com domain name for $2 million:

Domain Name Pricing is an Art

I took a Financial Accounting course my first semester of sophomore year in college. I don’t remember much from the class except for one thing the professor told us that I will paraphrase: “accounting is more of an art than a science.” I think the same thing can be said about the pricing of domain names on the aftermarket.

Best Buy Puts Swirl.com Up for Sale

I don’t regularly see large companies looking to sell excellent one word .com domain names, so I thought I would share a sale listing I recently noticed. Swirl.com has gone up for sale via MarkMonitor and Sedo. The domain name currently hosts an inquiry form to get in touch with a broker from the brand protection service where the domain name is registered.

Namecheap Acquires IZ.com and Poke.com

A little over a month ago, I reported that Namecheap acquired Cluster.com for $150,000 in a private transaction. The acquisition was made by the company “as a brand asset for a future product,” according to Namecheap CEO Richard Kirkendall. I recently learned that Namecheap has acquired two additional high value domain names: IZ.com and Poke.com.

This Domain Name is Subject to Repricing

6

When I am discussing the sale of a domain name with a prospective buyer, I let them know that the domain name is subject to repricing. This not only serves as a warning to a prospective buyer who might be surprised when they return to a domain name that has gone up in price, but it is also a tactic I employ to close a deal promptly. Prospective buyers don’t want to hem and haw over a domain name purchase for days or weeks and find out the price went up.

According to this tweet from SquadHelp, announcing “Automatic Price Increases” on a domain name landing page is a tactic the platform uses on some domain names in order to improve the sell through rate (STR):
