10 Recent Domain Name Acquisitions

0

I spend quite a bit of my time trying to buy good domain names. As I do every so often, I thought I would share a list of 10 domain names I recently acquired. These majority of these domain names were acquired privately, and the rest were acquired at NameJet or DropCatch.com.

Although this is not all of the domain names acquired recently, it probably offers a good glimpse of the types of domain names I buy. My focus tends to be on good, meaningful one and two word .com domain names. I have not bought any non-.com domain names in at least several months and probably longer than that.

I invite you to share the domain names you recently acquired in the aftermarket.

I haven’t shared a list of my recent domain name acquisitions in a while, so I thought I would share some today. I have mentioned a few of these names in various articles, but I figured I would share a list of recent buys.

All of these domain names were either purchased privately, purchased through a domain broker, or purchased at auction (NameJet, SnapNames, and GoDaddy Auctions). These are not all of the acquisitions that I have made, and I did not share any recent acquisitions that have already been sold.

One thing that is evident is that I like one word .com domain names.  I sold several one word .com domain names that were also recently acquired, so those are not included in this list. I will buy meaningful two word .com domain names as well, but the price needs to be right and there has to be enough potential suiters and good upside. As you can see, I only acquire  .com domain names.

I am always on the hunt for great one word .com domain names, so if you have any for sale at prices that would make sense to me, please get in touch. You are welcome to share some of your acquisitions as well.

10 Recent Domain Buys

On occasion, I like to share some of the domain names I have recently acquired. I think it gives people an idea of the types of domain names I buy on behalf of my company, and that might offer some color into my business and the advice I share. Most of the domain names I buy are keyword names that I think can be used as brands – either by my company or by a subsequent buyer.

One thing you will notice is the lack of “Chips” and short domain names on the list below. During the past few weeks, I did buy several domain names that I think would appeal to the Chinese market, and all of those domain names were privately sold. I would consider myself an opportunistic buyer, so I may or may not buy more. I am closely watching the market for investment and blogging purposes.

Listed below are a random assortment of 10 domain names my company has acquired in the last few weeks. For several reasons, I did not include any domain names that have already been re-sold. As always, I invite you to share some of the domain names you recently acquired (not hand registered).

It’s been a busy few weeks  for me, and I thought I would share 10 recent domain name acquisitions my company made. Some were bought privately from their former owners and others were bought at auction at NameJet. These are just an assortment of names that were purchased lately.

Purchase prices for the domain names below range from under $100 to 5 figures, and they are listed in alphabetical order:

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:

  • Embrace.com
  • Conceal.com
  • Franks.com
  • Ultrasonographer.com
  • VisitSantoDomingo.com

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.

Last month, I shared some of my recent hand registrations. Since then, I probably bought fewer than 5 additional hand registered domain names. I want to get back to hand registering names, but it takes as much time to find good ones as it does to research higher value names, and I still have greater success with those.

I want to share an assortment of domain names I bought in the aftermarket over the last few weeks. This is just an assortment and is not the entire list, but I think it gives an idea of the types of domain names I regularly buy.
